Go on a highly educational property tour with Prof Bruce—and see what other smart investors are doing without ever leaving your chair!
In this video property tour, you’ll “walk” through buildings to learn secret ways to boost returns. Spirepoint’s Paul Blacquiere and Bruce M Firestone take a group on a day-long exploration of properties—everything from a semi-detached home with a walkout basement converted to an apartment to Canadian Tire Centre—home of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators.
Learn more about how to buy smart, add unreal value, and boost cash flow/quickly increase the value of any property. You’ll find yourself thinking differently from all other investors (and making more money) after listening to urban guru—Bruce M Firestone, who is not only an entrepreneur, he’s a real estate broker and coach, a developer, columnist, novelist and keynote speaker. Bruce is perhaps best known as founder of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre, a world-class sports and entertainment venue.
Thank you for a wonderful day and property tour; I thought it went perfectly. I took away lots of ideas on how to add value to my own portfolio, which will help me to not only increase rents but decrease my vacancies as well.
If you don’t own a home, buy one. If you own a home, buy another one. If you own two homes, buy a third. And, lend your relatives the money to buy a home.
I am so grateful for all your coaching throughout the last six months, Prof Bruce. It's been SO valuable. I am about to close on my first $2 million-plus real estate acquisition (a downtown retail plaza)—I couldn't have achieved the same results without you!
I so enjoyed Prof Bruce’s presentation to our home-building group. Bruce is a born teacher, and I should know—I was one for many years. He’s very inspirational and extremely dynamic. I’d love for him to come to our area and show us how to animate our community and local economy.
Having Dr. Bruce Firestone at Bizfest was a huge success. I heard nothing but positive feedback from all our delegates. One delegate said she could have listened to him speak all day. His message is inspiring, and the delivery very relatable and down to earth. Bruce not only delivered but went above and beyond, offering to be available for an additional Q&A session, when one of my other presenters had to back out at the last minute. The fact that the Q&A session was packed, directly following his keynote speaks volumes to how much the delegates enjoyed and respected his message.
Bruce’s presentations are inspiring, entertaining and educational. He took the time to learn about our organization, our goals and exactly what we wanted to accomplish at our event. He created a fully customized deck for each keynote and we’ll certainly invite him back to address our group again.
I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed Prof Bruce’s teachings at Realtopia. The vision and ideas could not only lead the way in sustainable urban development but also provide a viable financial vehicle for both landlords and tenants for generations to come.
The students are still raving about your course, Startup DNA. They learned so much, and have made all the other Hyper Island students in Stockholm jealous (the ones who couldn't attend).
I am just starting out in the Real Estate Investment industry and I am so excited to apply this new-found information to my business. The Prof Bruce/Spirepoint course helped me see how to apply highest and best use and animation concepts to real estate transactions. I have been looking at adapting this as well to our own personal property. Prof Bruce is a professional yet approachable person with a wealth of knowledge, and his excitement is infectious. Every resource he exposed us to was backed up by instruction on how to use it properly. A great deal of care and preparation was obviously put into developing this course. Every session started and ended on time, which is also a testament to careful preparation. Bruce was quick to return emails too plus I thoroughly enjoyed my personal consultation/coaching time with him after the course was over. I was a little nervous being a novice speaking to a pro, but he made me feel at ease immediately. The assignment grading was expedient and thorough. The feedback was inspiring. I would recommend Spirepoint and Prof Bruce training programs to both beginner and advanced real estate investors.
Bruce, you are truly an awesome person. Thank you for what you do for people like us—teaching us to be Firestone Institute co-coaches and giving us our own personal business models for success. We are all lucky to have you in our lives
Roy and I continue to grow our rental portfolio, Bruce. We are now at 16 units, which will soon be 20! The next two are semi-detached. This is keeping us both very busy. Conventional mortgages continue to be our main challenge, but we are happily working for ourselves thanks to our coach!
What made Bruce’s keynote really special was his charisma on stage; he can definitely charm a crowd. His content about entrepreneurship and the sense of humor in his presentation were awesome, but there’s really one thing that made it exceptional—his stories and case studies. They were powerful and motivational, especially the one on how he persevered in his battle to land an NHL team for Ottawa. That made me feel like I was capable of everything after his talk.
I’d like to thank you and Spirepoint.ca for delivering such a great real estate course, which I enjoyed very much. I learned a lot, and the real-life examples and stories you shared with the class were a huge bonus.
