Ryan Carr is a full-time real estate investor from the Durham Region who specializes in helping homeowners get out of tough situations. His company, R.W. Carr Investments, has completed dozens of transactions with people across the GTA where debt, timing, maintenance, and repairs, or family nuances are a critical component to the deal.

Prior, Ryan was an auto mechanic and custom metal fabricator and his involvement with real estate began in 2012 with a rural bank-sale property, quickly followed by a series of deals including buy and holds, fix and flips, multi-family and new construction. The progression from these initial properties and subsequent resale led to fantastic experiences that propelled the concept of “vertical split” homes into the marketplace. The most interesting deal was a coach house that got national exposure on the news.

With a primary focus on the vertical split technique (A clever method of adding 2nd units to existing homes) Ryan has found as home values began to rise in the Durham Region, the cash flow crunch became the mainstream, which transformed the housing industry in two ways. The first being a solution to covering monthly expenses on properties, and the second being outside investor interest. His business focuses on purchasing properties from homeowners in sticky situations quickly and quietly.

Ryan is also involved in partnership opportunities, mentorship programs, and speaking engagements. He continues to innovate the industry with residential real estate purchases, coaching, new construction techniques, JV Partnerships, flipping, and small scale development. The purchasing of residential real estate has become his true passion and not just a business endeavour.

You will learn about:
– The importance of teamwork
– Strategies to scale up your business
– Taking deals and financing
– Mistakes to avoid
– Tips on buying properties

Guest: Michael Green, Real Estate Investor, Speaker & Entrepreneur

Michael Green is a successful house flipper, is the host of The Flip Factor podcast and has completed over 1100 deals. But at one point in time, this success was just a teenage boy’s dream. At the age of fifteen, prompted by late-night infomercials, Michael bought the book No Money Down by Carlton Sheets, which planted the seed of eventually becoming a house
flipper. 

But the road to success wasn’t always easy. Growing up next to the projects in Baltimore, Michael found himself getting into trouble, and his relationship with his dad was built on breaking the law.

At 17, Michael found himself thrown into a paddy wagon with handcuffs around his wrists. Faced with a four-year jail sentence and a cold, uncomfortable prison cell, with terrible food, scratchy blankets and no freedom, Michael had a lot of time to think. He thought about how if his life up to that point were a house, it would be a broken-down, boarded-up house. His negative patterns and limiting beliefs had eaten away at his foundation like hungry termites. Michael could either continue these patterns and let his life crumble around him, or he could step up and fix it. 

So he got to work on his first flip – himself

He started out as a flooring installer and in 2008 he was doing a job for a gentleman flipping houses named Jason Shara. Sensing his curiosity and interest in the industry, he invited Michael to a free meeting for house flippers. At this meeting, Michael was introduced to his first mentor. After just a few months of studying under his mentor, he made his first deal flipping a house for $16,000 without a single penny of his money. 

For the next year, he continued doing flips and made a total of $106,459 and in 2009 he was able to leave his full-time job and has been flipping houses ever since

Michael believes that the key to success in the house flipping industry is being open to investing in personal growth and seeing the potential in something that’s a little broken-down and rough around the edges, even if others may have given up on it. This includes seeing the potential in oneself. 

After learning this, Michael has scaled two houses flipping businesses and flipped over 1100 houses in the last ten years and achieved the success he’d never believed was possible. He finds the most rewarding part of his career to be helping others make profound changes from the inside out and achieving financial freedom. When he’s not flipping houses or giving back, Michael can be found travelling, attempting to surf, and most recently, learning how to hike.

You will learn about:
– Financing tips and differences
– Building your power team
– Analyzing deals and the key numbers to look for
– Tips on scaling up your business
– Closing deals insights

After graduating as an Occupational Therapist, Evelyn Lamarsh began researching all the different ways to make money and settled on real estate. 2 years later, at age 26, she bought her first two rental properties and then bought a house for herself.

Guest: Evelyn Lamarsh, Real Estate Investor

After graduating as an Occupational Therapist, Evelyn Lamarsh began researching all the different ways to make money and settled on real estate. 2 years later, at age 26, she bought her first two rental properties and then bought a house for herself.

She didn’t get to live there very long though, because her neighbour, Mike, fell in love with the Girl Next Door and they were married in no time!  She made the big move next door and her house became another rental.

Fast forward a few years with a steady focus of adding one property at a time in their market of Hamilton they now have 10 properties, all buy and holds. 5 are student rentals and 5 are single-family homes, one of which they have recently switched to an Air BnB. 

Eveyln’s love of her vocation means she will return to her community mental health support role in the fall from maternity leave, not from a need for the paycheque but because she loves helping others. However, their success has meant Mike has been able to retire, at the age of 30, from the tough, dirty life as an auto mechanic and switch those trade skills repairing or upgrading almost everything that their properties need.  

Evelyn and Mike are at the moment taking a break from collecting homes and make more time for cycling, canoeing and chilling in their boat as well as parents to two very young children. 

You will learn about:
– How remaining focused help you hit your goals
– Why taking an investing break is possible and can make sense
– Making the right money choices
– Using property cash flow to treat yourself, like getting a 32-foot boat!
– Tips for starter investors in their mid-20’s

Michael Rosehart is a 25-year-old early retired, self-made millionaire (Canada’s Youngest!), with a young family, who unlocked financial independence at the age of 24 through Real Estate investing and extreme frugality. In fact, he has never paid to live anywhere since age 18.

He has worked on most types of real estate investment projects and by 2017 had scaled up to build a property portfolio that cash-flowed over $12,000 per month (net) in London, Ontario, Canada. He sold a number of houses when he retired and then established a property management company, a construction company and currently has 55 buildings and overall has worked on 70 major projects. 

Mike worked in a variety of jobs from Analyst, Senior Consulting Analyst, and then finally as a Manager in a new division he helped start, within the Research & Advisory practice, at one of the world’s fastest-growing mid-sized IT Research & Advisory firms. He has also held roles previously in government, financial services & banking, education (university), and in accounting at KPMG. 

Mike is obsessed with all things personal finance. He works to share what worked for him, what didn’t and to help others on all things Real-Estate, personal finance, and trying to manage that all with a young family. Mike is now on a mission to help educate others on how to unlock financial independence for themselves!

Gene and Emmanuel (Manny) Guarino are father and son real estate investors based in Arizona who focus on the growing residential assisted living investment space. Gene got started in real estate investing at an early age and over the years completed a variety of investments including buy and hold, flips and commercial. 

Guests:  Gene and Manny Guarino, Real Estate Investors

Gene and Emmanuel (Manny) Guarino are father and son real estate investors based in Arizona who focus on the growing residential assisted living investment space. Gene got started in real estate investing at an early age and over the years completed a variety of investments including buy and hold, flips and commercial. 

Around 7 years ago he got started in residential assisted living, which is running the day to day living needs for a group of seniors inside a residential home. One of the key differences between this and larger eldercare homes is there is not a medical component to the daily care. 

Manny was attracted to the business after seeing his father being recognized by Robert Kiyosaki as ‘THE Residential Assisted Living Guy’. He is now one of the top realtors in this space in the area and also works on other areas of the business. 

The family personally owns and operates three care homes in Phoenix and Scottsdale and through a planned merger and other investments they are invested in around 200 spaces in assisted living buildings across the country.

Gene has over 30 years experience in real estate investing and business and now is focused on the mega-trend of senior assisted housing. Having trained tens of thousands of investor/entrepreneurs over the past 25 years, 5 years ago he looked to specialize in helping others take advantage of this opportunity, founding the Residential Assisted Living Academy. Both Gene and Manny teach, coach and mentor individuals, who are looking to get into the industry, the ins and outs of this business. 

You will learn about:
– Why assisted living is becoming a mega real estate investing trend
– Understanding what is needed for a property and local regulations
– Different types of real estate investing models for residential assisted living 
– What expenses look like and the cash flow upsides of this strategy
– Why more people are not looking at this investing strategy and why you should

Guest:  Jeff Murray, Real Estate Investor

Chris has been in real estate for over 25 years and his team, based out of Rhode Island and students across the US, acquires 5-10 properties each and every month without using any of their own money, through owner financing or lease-purchase (rent to own), the latter of which creates 3 separate paydays totalling around $75,000. 

Guest:  Chris Prefontaine, Real Estate Investor and Author

Chris has been in real estate for over 25 years and his team, based out of Rhode Island and students across the US, acquires 5-10 properties each and every month without using any of their own money, through owner financing or lease-purchase (rent to own), the latter of which creates 3 separate paydays totalling around $75,000. 

He and his family team have done over $80 million in real estate transactions. They mentor, coach, consult, and actually partner with students around the country (by application only) to do exactly what they do.

Chris’ past experience includes the construction, mostly during the 1990s, of over 100 single-family and duplex homes. He owned a Realty Executives Franchise (Massachusetts 1994-2000) as broker/owner which maintained high per-agent standards and eventually sold to Coldwell Banker in 2000. 

During the 2000s his focus included coaching $½ million and higher REALTORs® in order to scale and automate their business throughout the US and Canada. He also participated (and still does selectively) in doing condo conversions (multi-family homes to condos) and “raise the roof” projects, converting single-family ranches to colonials in growth neighborhoods.

Chris is a big advocate of continuing education and participates regularly in high-end mastermind groups, as well as consults with private mentors. His goal is to continue to have his adult children involved in the business to grow to 50+ properties and 125 working students around North America. 

You will learn about:
– Lease purchases (rent to own) strategies
– Investing processes in the US
– Purchase agreements
– Joint venture screening tips
– Tips on finding deals

Nam Phung arrived in Canada from a refugee camp in 1987, starting high school in Canada speaking very little English and worked part-time to support himself through high school and university.  His formal education includes a degree from York University in Business Administration Studies with a Major in Accounting and his career was spent as a Senior Accountant and Financial Analyst before becoming a full-time investor.

He started investing in real estate 13 years ago and focuses on multi-unit properties ideally with 4 up to 12 units in higher-end sub-markets in Toronto, with a current portfolio of a dozen properties valued at over $15 million.  His two more recent investments have been an 11 unit property and also a cottage which he has on Air BnB and enjoys himself.

Nam has found his key to successful investing in expensive markets is closely managing the construction, ongoing property management and maintenance and be sure to maintain good relationships with suppliers, the trades as well as his tenants.  Nam has helped a number of his fellow accountants get into real estate investing and also holds a real estate license with Keller Williams in Mississauga.
