Hello Everyone Who Invests in Hamilton Real Estate!!
How about them Blue Jays?!?! Best Record going into the all-star break since we won the World Series. Not bad at all!
Once a month or so, I catch up with my friends from High School and on this night we did dinner and a Blue Jays game on a beautiful night in Toronto. It was slightly humid to the advantage of our knuckleball pitcher RA Dickey who played great along with our offence that hit FOUR home runs!! Our seats were strategically chosen in Left/center field with an objective of catching a home run ball and we were somewhat close. I brought my baseball glove and my “friends” would laugh each time I got ready when a ball was hit in our direction. Donaldson and Tulowitzki came sort of close to us which was exciting and we won the game. Also fun was our old friend, rock star, Jason Parsons of the Juno nominated band USS (http://www.ussmusic.com/) was able to join us.
Here’s a current track of theirs, note the almost 1.9 million views… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6LGi2Y9GYk
Needless to say I’m very proud of my friend Jason’s success and look forward to his next album release and tour later this year.
Starting Early, Investing at the Young age of 26 w/ Evelyn Lamarsh
Evelyn began her real estate investing journey at age 26. She bought two rentals then bought a house for herself. She didn’t get to live there very long, 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. Evelyn and Mike keep collecting homes and make time for cycling, canoeing and chilling in their boat. Evelyn is an Occupational Therapist and Mike’s Executive Assistant. Mike is an Auto Mechanic and Evelyn’s personal Mr. Fix-It. One day, Mike will own his dream sports car and he’s willing to share it 50/50… Evelyn will get the passenger seat!
