Guest: Ruben Furtado, Real Estate Investor, Mentor and Advisor

Ruben Furtado specializes in residential real estate focusing in Oakville, Burlington, Milton, Mississauga and the GTA. He brings a new perspective, unlike any other realtor. With over 20 years of experience in successful real estate investing, he has leveraged his unique strategies to set new highs in sale prices and has helped many of his customers meet and exceed their real estate goals in a warm, calm, nurturing and professional setting.

Ruben understands the importance of finding a realtor you can trust. Prior to becoming a real estate sales representative, he bought and sold a large number of properties and at times dealt with realtors whom he questioned if they were acting in his and his family’s best interest. He looked back and identified what characteristic he wanted in a salesperson and instead of finding one he took on the role willingly.

With a sales background in complex corporate selling and years of experience in residential construction, Ruben brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. He has identified key trends and developed successful strategies to buy great homes under market value and sell homes at top dollar.

Ruben’s honesty and integrity and, most importantly, his passion for real estate have lead him to become a true expert in his field. He is a trusted advisor and mentor to many in the real estate community because he always finds win-win situations even with the most complex problems or challenges. His speed, decisiveness, and master level negotiating skills have created a history of success stories for his customers.

You will learn about:
– Analyzing deals and properties
– False expectations when flipping homes
– Insights on modern builds
– Renovation insights

Oliver Manalese started investing in real estate when he was 18 years old. At the time, he was in University and worked at a car manufacturing plant but quickly noticed that no one was living a life he wanted to replicate so he knew something had to change. Oliver then discovered the Rent To Own (RTO) strategy. 

Initially, Oliver was looking for opportunities to help people and the RTO strategy was the perfect win-win scenario. By 24 he had acquired 4 properties with the tenant first strategy and it quickly grew to 20 deals per year. However, after a lot of self-reflection, he decided to go in a different direction and ended up leaving the real estate investment business ten years later. 

Oliver now runs a successful personal personal transformation consultancy . He is an expert in coaching successful entrepreneurs who feel spiritually bankrupt. With a focus on creating a meaningful life and making a difference, clients align their purpose with an impact-driven business.

Ian Tait is a proponent of part-time investing, or in his case, having a “proper” full-time job and using real estate investing to augment life, structure debt, and provide financial gains for retirement as well as providing for his kids’ future.

Guest: Ian Tait, Real Estate Investor & Paramedic

Ian Tait is a proponent of part-time investing, or in his case, having a “proper” full-time job and using real estate investing to augment life, structure debt, and provide financial gains for retirement as well as providing for his kids’ future.

He has been investing in real estate since he was 20 years old, just outside of Vancouver, BC, in the Fraser Valley.  He has owned properties including bare land, multi-family duplexes, apartments and condos, as well as acreage and recreational property. While Ian has structured most of his investments in an incorporated company, he also runs a small property maintenance and management company.  

Ian’s strategy has been to invest in one or two properties and then flip to create more money and then invest again. When his landlord offered his condo to him at $33k Ian realized the benefits of condo investing and his only regret was not taking the later offer of the remaining 10 units in one purchase. He now owns a handful of condos that are full of equity, great tenants and require minimal time spent on maintenance because the condo fees cover many of the typical costs.  

While real estate investing is a passion of his, it’s currently only a side project, as he works full time as an Advanced Care Paramedic in Chilliwack BC.  His hobbies revolve around his two kids (11-year-old Cooper and 7-year-old Gavin), as well as planning and taking extended world travelling with his wife Megan.                                       

You will learn about:
– Investing in condos as a strategy
– Rental property financials and downsides of Airbnb
– Interviewing and screening tenants

Guest: Monica Mayorga, Real Estate Investor & Retirement Specialist 

Monica Mayorga is a successful real estate investor since 2011 investing in multiple markets for profit by implementing strategies such as re-purposed dwellings, long flips, the BRRRR method (buy, rehab, rent, refinance and repeat), joint venture partnerships and student rentals. 

Monica was previously employed with an international pharmaceutical company as a Pension and Benefits Specialist. When a financial tool was introduced to help the staff determine if their retirement plans were on track, Monica decided to explore it first before introducing it to staff. According to the financial calculator, Monica and husband Raphael were not saving enough to retire the way they wanted. In fact, she would have to continue working part-time during their retirement years. 

The terrifying news caused Monica to hit what she calls “her panic button”. She immediately contacted her husband and sold him on the idea to create wealth through real estate investing. Although her husband was on board, he was skeptical and even added a challenge that he wanted their first investment to be a small multi-family property, a triplex.

Together they found a rundown triplex in Toronto in an upcoming neighbourhood that was underperforming. Funds were tight and the entire building needed renovations. That’s when Monica wrote to Scott McGillivray, host of HGTV Income Property, asking for help on their first project. Low and behold help was graciously provided, not only with renovations but also with knowledge on what it takes to be a great landlord and the business of real estate investing.

Monica’s first experience gave her the tools to transition from working countless hours in a corporate job to retiring 20 years earlier and becoming a Retirement Specialist travelling the world. 

You will learn about:
– Investment strategy tips and refinancing
– Project cost, numbers and processes
– Scaling up your business
– Private financing

THE 5 step guide to finding, screening and keeping the best tenants. 

Are you; 

  • Spending too much time looking for new tenants?
  • Losing cash flow on properties because of rental not paid?
  • Thinking about or just started in real estate investing but frightened by the whole tenant screening piece?

Don’t worry, you are not alone. 

One of the major causes of good rental properties moving from positive to negative cash flow is because real estate investors do not have a robust and repeatable tenant process. 

I went from zero to a seven-figure portfolio – all while still in my thirties. One of the best things I’ve done along the way, the very best thing, was thoroughly screening my tenants and selecting the right ones for all my properties. 

Now I am ready to share my tenant screening process with you in this FREE webinar.
https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_v9i5Wo_kQiunpM0pNYqXwA

Successful Tenant Screening in 5 Easy Steps

Here’s what’s covered:

  • I will cover how to successfully screen tenants in five easy steps, so you can focus on building your wealth – just like I did.
  • I show you how to fill a vacancy quickly and successfully, what strategies to apply in order to avoid renting to bad tenants, what are the five main steps needed for finding and screening tenants. I walk you through exactly what those steps are and how to do them.
  • I explain how to reject tenants so you don’t get yourself into legal trouble, and how to create a repeatable systematic process so you really can be successful at this.

Remember, tenants will completely make or break your experience in real estate.

So SCREEN YOUR TENANTS PROPERLY … learn how.

Sign up for this FREE webinar now.
https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_v9i5Wo_kQiunpM0pNYqXwA

This webinar is perfect for anyone interested in real estate investing and being a landlord one day, or even for current landlords looking to refine their processes and improving their ways of finding and screening tenants.

Remember, one bad tenant will cost you more than just money, there’s the lost peace of mind too.

Guest: Brian Fitzgerald, Real Estate Investor & Realtor

Brian Fitzgerald is a firefighter, real estate agent as well as a real estate investor for the last 6 years in the Hamilton & Niagara area. 

Brians start in investing began when he decided to tackle a couple of flips on the Hamilton Mountain. Having only been a handyman, Brian jumped in headfirst and learned many valuable lessons along the way and came out with vast experiences in the renovation and contracting world – he also came out with much less hair after the experiences.

Since then Brian has focused his strategy to more Buy & Hold investments, with current plans to jump back into the renovations and getting his hands dirty with the BRRRR strategy.

His experience with home buying, renovations, dealing with contractors, and being a landlord himself are also a large benefit to the investor clients he serves as a Realtor. His easy-going approach with clients and his knowledge of renovation practices and expenses make him an absolute asset to any investor that he works with.

When it comes to the management side of his properties, Brian’s biggest asset is his ability to find the best tenants and put them into his A+ properties. His property management company, Fitzgerald PM, also serves many of his investor clients that choose to be hands-off with their real estate investments.

His portfolio currently consists of duplexes, single-family rentals as well as a recreational property on the water which makes Brian a really experienced and well-rounded investor as well as Realtor.

You will learn about:
– The pros and cons of making deals
– How to find off-market deals
– Managing time when having more than one job role
– Managing your portfolio
