Jesse and Colette

Allow us to introduce you to Jesse and Colette. He knew he wanted more. He had a decent job but felt handcuffed to it.  He had a family he loved and, in general, was satisfied with life.  That was fine but he wanted more for the future and believed real estate investing could give him that. He read self-development books, was building his first investment property (a gorgeous fourplex) but was feeling uncertain, scared and generally like this should be a lot f*cking easier.  It’s not that his wife and him were not on the same page – but it didn’t feel…

FAQ

You have a pretty “out there” brand comparative to others in the industry…..why?

“Brand” is a funny thing.  We’ve used branding agencies in the past and they told us what we should wear and what we should say.  That doesn’t work for us.  We believe in being authentic which means sometimes swearing, saying it as it is, and taking a no bullsh*t approach.  So many people have a “persona” which is fine if you are a performer.  We are not performers.  We are real people, with real experience, working with real clients.  We used to belong to a real estate group, and they had something called “boots, belt buckles and bling”.  The idea was to “wow” investors by showing up flashy and polished in an attempt to attract a joint venture partner.  We think boots, belt buckles and bling are bullsh*t. We only want to be partners with people who are real and authentic.  Those are the people you can trust.  Trust is VERY important to us.

Why is personal development so important to you and your coaching program?

This is such a no brainer.  Without personal development success is limited.  Success to us is wholistic – it’s not just money, freedom, relationships with yourself and others – it’s the whole package.  We know from personal experience that you can achieve superficial goals without being successful.  It wasn’t until we started doing some serious personal development that we went from being rich to living richly.   We also believe in continual growth – it’s not like you reach a point and that’s it.  That’s ridiculous.  Lastly, personal development and professional / financial growth are mutually reenforcing. They aren’t siloed ventures.  

Why is integrity so important to you and your company?

It’s a huge mind f*ck for us to be acting outside of integrity. Most people can agree that it’s a good thing to have integrity.  But for us it goes further than that.  When we are out of integrity, we make bad decisions, we lose clarity and it creates tension – not only in ourselves but in our relationships with others.  That is not how we want to live or how we want to do business.  

How Do I Start Investing in Real Estate?
  1. Write Out Your 10 Year Vision. Where are you and who is with you? Most people will write all the big dreams they want but let’s go one step further. Let’s attach a monthly or yearly income to the lifestyle. Is this something you can attain and aspire to achieve? Write it down!
  2. Read Rich Dad Poor Dad.  This was one of the most inspirational books my wife and I read at the beginning of our investment journey. This is the book that made us realize there was an opportunity with real estate that we wanted to learn more about.
  3. Get Learning. It’s too early in the process to decide on a complete strategy as you don’t know what you don’t know right now. You just outlined the dream life and attached an income to it. So now it’s time to learn all you can. Go to a few investment workshops and/or weekend events to gather knowledge and resources but be careful to not get caught in the sales trap they are offering at these events. You’re there to learn, not to overcommit yourself.
  4. Make Some Decisions. Decide if you want to do this journey on your own or with some guidance. All the real estate groups are teaching textbook theory.  No offence to these groups, but it isn’t always hands-on enough to be personal to you and your individual needs. The other option is to hire a coach. Be careful, as you want to use someone who is still currently in the investment realm. An investor who bought 100 properties 15 years ago may not work for you as their strategies may be outdated.
  5. Evaluate Your Finances. It’s time to analyze your opportunities. If you have a coach, they should be taking you through this process. If you’re doing it alone, then take the time to evaluate your financial position. How much cash do you have? Do you have access to lines of credit?  What’s your credit rating? How much will the bank lend you?  Do you have equity in your house you can use? Take stock of all your resources.
  6. Meet with a Mortgage Broker. The truth is if you only have $25,000 you cannot go and buy a $500,000 property that cash flows $1000/m. You need to know the product you can buy.  If you want to flip houses and only have access to $50,000 then you need to know what type of property you can afford. A mortgage broker will help with this.
  7. Research the Market.  If your budget is $500,000 then spend the time looking at areas where that’s the average price of a house. Get to know the area, its shops, parks and features. The goal here is not to find the house yet but to understand the end user. Understanding the potential tenant you’re seeking comes before buying the house!
  8. Get in Touch with an Agent.  A real estate agent’s job is to sell you something as they need to pay their bills. Even an investment realtor needs to sell a product, so you should never fully trust their opinion. Nothing against agents, but they all have bills to pay. In the end, if the house isn’t good they will not buy it back from you. So do your homework and work with someone you trust.
  9. Start Thinking Long Term. While connecting with your agent, it’s a good time to get reading the tenancy act in your province. Get thinking about managing your investment property. Do you want to manage the property yourself or do you want to hire a manager? Both have their pros and cons and you should consider exactly how you will manage your property before diving in.
