273: Developing Your Success Mindset with Thomas Lorini
Receive GTA Off-Market Deals & Passive Small to Mid-Size Apartments Deals Across Canada Right Now! Click Here to Sign Up absolutely FREE: https://pages.watsonestates.ca/ What is your mindset?  Are you set up for success? Our guest today is Thomas Lorini.  Thomas is Canadian, however as of 2014, he moved his family from Toronto, Ontario to Orange County, California.  Paradise does come at a cost, but they really enjoy living where they do. Thomas loves real estate and over the years has transitioned it from a hobby into a full-time labour of love. It all started after reading Cashflow Quadrants by Robert Kiyosaki and joining a network of real estate investors that he realized the true benefits and possibilities that real estate could offer. In 2011, he was able to take a HELOC (home equity line of credit) off his principal residency and purchase a small duplex in an A-class rental area. It was from that point that he started creating his own portfolio of cash-flowing assets. Today, he is laser-focused on purchasing Class B & C cash-flowing properties and partnering with other investors who like the idea of real estate investing but don’t have the time or experience to do so. He currently owns a combination of single-family homes, duplex, triplex and larger mix-used multi-family buildings. Thomas loves working with people and as a professional real estate agent helps as many people and families as he can make informed decisions when it comes to their homes. He understands that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why Thomas and his team are dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service for all of their clients. Thomas takes great pride in the relationships that he builds and works relentlessly on his client’s behalf to help them achieve all their real estate goals. Fun facts about Thomas:  He loves coffee…especially cappuccinos, He plays soccer, He loves eating spinach and rappini (Google it!), he teaches Sunday school, his favourite number is 7, he loves the beach (I would too if I live in Orange County, CA!), and he was born in Canada.

264: How to Acquire 20+ Units in 2 Years by Wholesaling with Waylon McGill
Waylon started his career in real estate in 2019 by talking to his future wife into buying a property using her first time home buyer credit. He had a great career and access to lines of credit, but basically no capital so he learned about private money, partnered with other investors and other creative ways to make deals. After doing a buy and hold, a duplex conversion and a cottage rental Waylon ran out of funds so he started focusing on learning to wholesale to make active income to supplement his investing. Since then he has partnered with Austin Yeh and scaled to a team of 7 at Fast Ontario Home Buyer. They have wholesaled around 30 deals this year and have purchased 16 units between North Bay and Sudbury in that time.

174: Luxury Toronto Real Estate vs COVID with HGTV Star Rizwan Malik
We had the pleasure of speaking with Rizwan Malik. Selling swanky suites and homes to satisfy and serve – say that ten times fast. That’s what realtor extraordinaire Rizwan Malik does every day in his job, and the roots go far back. As a teenager, he worked at a pet shop where not only did his love of animals grow, but his selling skills did, too. And that passion for sales and innate go-getter spirit only continued to flourish throughout his life. Rizwan moved to Toronto in 1994, long before Drake dubbed the city “The 6ix.” While completing his bachelor’s degree in Commerce at Ryerson University, Rizwan earned his real estate license and eventually was named the youngest Vice President of Sales ever at Sotheby's International Realty Canada. If that wasn’t noteworthy enough, in 2020 Rizwan's charm, charisma, and extensive expertise in real estate saw him cast as one of the hosts on HGTV Canada’s Hot Market where he helped affluent clientele find their dream homes. If you’ve had the pleasure of meeting Rizwan, you know he was born to be in front of the camera where his outgoing personality couples fabulously with his vast knowledge base.  Rizwan shares with us his opinion on how COVID has impacted the Luxury Market.
