Happy Victoria Day Weekend Real Estate Investors!!
How nice was it to have a day off to kick off the planting season!! After the success of last year’s vegetable garden, we have doubled the size of the garden and are adding potatoes, pumpkins, and beets on top of last year’s herbs and vegetables. It all started when I saw a post on Facebook that stated, “Like if Gardening Should be Taught in School”, and I totally agree. It’s a subject that should be taught in school along with investing, preparing personal taxes, financial planning, etc… (Imagine a subject like budgeting being taught in school and a student asks the teacher why governments run massive deficits with no plans to pay them back?) Like any change to large bureaucracies, change may take some time. I can wait for the school system to adapt to me OR we can teach gardening at home. My wife and I chose the latter and the kids love it. The kids enjoy spending time with me after the work day, filling our watering containers from the rain barrel, watering the plants around the property. We use city water mostly for anything we plan on eating just to be safe, and the kids enjoy getting their hands dirty, which I’ve read is good for them in building strong immune systems.
When entertaining guests with kids, we let them help as well. In a world where some kids spend most of their free time in front of TV’s or electronic devices, they go wild over picking tomatoes and pulling carrots from the ground. Farming is a novelty for them, and we’re excited to double our yield to have enough to share more with our friends and neighbours.
How to Graduate to Apartment Building Investing with Pierre Paul Turgeon
Welcome ladies and gentlemen across the greatest country in the world, this is the Truth About Real Estate Investing show for Canadians, where it is my job to bring you experts in the world of investing so we may learn from their experience in hopes that we can duplicate their success, and inspire YOU to take action for a better financial future for yourself and those closest to you.
This week we welcome one of the greatest teachers of apartment building investing. Returning to the show is former lawyer, former CMHC analyst for default management and underwriter for multi-family properties, Pierre Paul Turgeon.

He’s back to give you an update on oil, Edmonton, Alberta, and why apartment building investment makes sense for any portfolio. If you feel you need more preparation before purchasing a building, Pierre Paul just so happens to be launching both an online course and a live, in person, hands on training class coming up later this year right in Hamilton, Ontario and he’ll be making the announcement on the show. Links and details are in the show notes.

This episode is brought to you by Mr. Hamilton Inner Circle Meeting. Years ago, when I was a dewy eyed, novice investor, I sought out meet ups and “Mastermind” meetings for networking opportunities. At the time I was already a REIN member and had our first three properties, which made me the expert of the group. I felt like no expert, the meetings were unstructured and most folks were just tire kickers. It was a massive waste of time. I wanted to surround myself with action-takers. Fast forward to today, we host monthly Mr Hamilton Inner Circle Meetings meant for the serious investor who is serious about taking action in securing a better financial future for themselves and the people they care about. Our focus is on education, on everything an investor needs to be successful and everything I’ve come across to be an award winning real estate agent and investor.
Each and every meeting has a wait list so don’t delay and register today for Mr. Hamilton Inner Circle Meeting. Immediately following each meeting is an optional,highly recommended Mr Hamilton Street Smart Tour where you are guided by one of Mr Hamilton’s highly successful investor coaches. They lead a tour of properties in a select top town for investments. Nothing replaces boots on the ground experience, and sometimes we get lucky and uncover a gem of a property. There is no pressure to buy anything EVER!! But we will recommend to you what we would buy for ourselves.
Thanks for reading (and listening!) and happy Hamilton real estate investing!
