Take Action and Specialize to Get the Life You Want



Mat Piche is a real estate investor specializing in the Kitchener-Waterloo region and through his regular eating of a whole food plant-based diet has also become known as  “The Fruitful Investor” with which he has built his brand.
Guest: Mat Piche, Real Estate Investor and Realtor Mat Piche is a real estate investor specializing in the Kitchener-Waterloo region and through his regular eating of a whole food plant-based diet has also become known as  “The Fruitful Investor” with which he has built his brand. Coming from a long line of carpenters, Mat has always had an interest in building and renovations- you could even say it is in his ‘blood.’ Combine this with his passion for real estate investing and his desire to achieve financial freedom for both himself and his clients and together you have one motivated real estate agent! As a child, Mat’s family struggled financially like many others and early on, he knew that there was more to life than just ‘living to get by.’ After graduating from high school, he began his carpentry apprenticeship with a small renovations company, working alongside two senior employees who soon became his mentors. With help from his mentors, Mat soon became a skilled carpenter in residential renovations. Nearing the end of his apprenticeship, Mat began to question his future as a company-employed carpenter. While he loved the work, he found himself caught up in the never-ending ‘rat-race’ they call life-. As a 20-year-old, this is something he had never envisioned for himself and he delved into a journey of self-reflection and analysis. While for some this type of self-reflection comes later in life, for Mat this type-A mentality was nothing new. Mat took control of his life for the first time and bought his first investment property on his 22nd birthday. This purchase marked a major turning point in his life, giving him the confidence he needed to quit his job and start his own renovation company strictly for other investors. Mat’s innovative renovation methods for saving client’s money set him apart from his competitors and earned him the respect of many local investors, allowing him to build strong relationships and connections with them. Going from broke carpenter at 20 years old to now owning 23 properties by the age of 30, his own portfolio did mostly comprise of single family homes but more recently he has been expanding into multiplex units, student housing and flips. Scaling his business accelerated by working with joint venture partners, all of whom he has attracted through his YouTube channel and social media activity. Mat is now focused on helping more people also create freedom in their lives by owning quality investment properties by specializing and educates and helps them through his podcast, videos, coaching and The Fruitful Investing Academy. His real estate investing life has enabled him to have the freedom to follow his passion for travelling and eating fruit around the world.
