Guest: Brian Fitzgerald, Real Estate Investor & Realtor
Brian Fitzgerald is a firefighter, real estate agent as well as a real estate investor for the last 6 years in the Hamilton & Niagara area. Brians start in investing began when he decided to tackle a couple of flips on the Hamilton Mountain. Having only been a handyman, Brian jumped in headfirst and learned many valuable lessons along the way and came out with vast experiences in the renovation and contracting world – he also came out with much less hair after the experiences. Since then Brian has focused his strategy to more Buy & Hold investments, with current plans to jump back into the renovations and getting his hands dirty with the BRRRR strategy. His experience with home buying, renovations, dealing with contractors, and being a landlord himself are also a large benefit to the investor clients he serves as a Realtor. His easy-going approach with clients and his knowledge of renovation practices and expenses make him an absolute asset to any investor that he works with.
When it comes to the management side of his properties, Brian’s biggest asset is his ability to find the best tenants and put them into his A+ properties. His property management company, Fitzgerald PM, also serves many of his investor clients that choose to be hands-off with their real estate investments. His portfolio currently consists of duplexes, single-family rentals as well as a recreational property on the water which makes Brian a really experienced and well-rounded investor as well as Realtor. You will learn about: – The pros and cons of making deals – How to find off-market deals – Managing time when having more than one job role – Managing your portfolio
