Guest: Real Estate Investor and Landlord, Britta Hild Britta started in the world of real estate investing in 2011 purchasing a 5 unit building in Toronto. Having only previously bought a primary single unit residence she was unprepared for the added work to close the deal and handling the day to day life of a landlord.
