This week’s podcast guest is Ava Benesocky, Realtor and Real Estate Investor.

Ava started out as a realtor in a small city in Alberta. She eventually had a dream to move to Vancouver but wasn’t ready for big-city realtors! She hit some hurdles but decided to look for opportunities. She kept meeting investors that were hitting a wall due to the high price tag of local investments. That’s when she realized there must be a place where investors could deploy their capital! With CPI, she’s now matching investor capital with active operator investors in the states, pooling together capital to purchase much larger assets.

CPI’s focus is on 30-50 million dollar assets with at least 100 doors. The company has been around for a while and now has a constant deal flow. It’s all about creating strong business relationships. CPI brings in the funds to make the deals happen and also sits on the GP to ensure a smooth process. Canadians are very conservative investors in general and still need to learn about how to deploy their capital internationally. CPI is focusing on education first and helping hundreds of Canadians become successful investors.

In this episode, you will learn about:

  • How to deploy funds in US assets
  • Great way to diversify your portfolio
  • Forced appreciation and natural appreciation
  • Investing in the sunbelt (US states)
  • How to address double taxation for Canadians investing in the US
  • Turn-key solutions for Canadian investors
