Guest: Darren Voros, Real Estate Investor, Contractor & Speaker
What would you be willing to do to learn something new that would get you out of the rat race? Well, this week’s podcast guest Darren Voros, Real Estate Investor, Contractor & Speaker went from being a theatre actor to a full-time real estate investor. He did this by working at night and on weekends as an actor and buying properties during the day.
Darren provides insights and advice on investing in Toronto and what a typical deal looks like. He also shares insights on investing in larger projects and highlights the importance of having extra contingencies in your numbers to account for the unexpected, especially during COVID.
In this episode, you will learn about:
- What does a typical deal look like in Toronto

Darren’s diverse skill set has taken him to many stages around the world. He has been featured as an on-air renovation expert on “The Goods” (CBC) and “CityLine” (CityTV). Darren was also the behind the scenes contractor on “Save My Reno” (HGTV) and “Game of Homes (W Network).
Darren is an accomplished real estate investor, trainer and coach. He controls a portfolio of properties worth just over $10,000,000 and has travelled across North America educating, inspiring and motivating audiences on the subject of real estate investing, financial independence and financial literacy.
