Hello Real Estate Investors!!
Wow!! What a great weekend at ACRE (Authentic Canadian Real Estate) hosted by REIN (the Real Estate Investment Network). This was my tenth ACRE event and it was a blast to meet so many of you readers and listeners in person, and to network with clients and old friends from REIN. The networking is next-level and I invited a couple folks with brilliant stories to share on future episodes of the Truth About Real Estate Investing show.
A bunch of out-of-towners, and some client friends of mine, booked hotel rooms for the weekend, so
socializing over dinner and adult beverages
resulted in good times. If you’re coming next year, we’ll be getting hotel rooms again and recommend you do the same, even if you live in the area! Or stay late and take an Uber home.
How a New Investor Acquired Five Duplexes in Six Months
Hello ladies and gentlemen investors from across Canada, welcome to another episode of the truth about real estate investing, where it is my pleasure to bring to you investor stories to educate, inspire and maybe even entertain. This week we have a guest referred by a friend of the show in Amy Halpenny. She’s new to real estate investing, but she shot out of a cannon. She acquired five properties in just over six months in Collingwood and the Durham Region, converting each of them to add secondary suites, for a total of ten units.
On-the-job Amy combines strategic ‘big picture’ thinking with well-honed management skills, operational know-how, and a relentless persistence to “get ‘er done.”
Before getting into real estate, Amy worked in small business and start-ups for over 15 years in strategy, sales, marketing and operations.
In this interview we talk about Amy’s reasons for investing, the courses she took, and how they helped. She also discusses how her investing strategy will insulate her from market corrections.
