In this follow up to Real Estate Investing Made Easy by Bruce M Firestone, PhD, in cooperation with Spirepoint, you will learn how to up your cap rates by animating your properties by adding differentiated value to a real estate portfolio of any size. Case studies are presented of residential, commercial and institutional models including Phoebe Services, Airbnb, Tire Chalet, mini storage, mini contractor yards, St Matthews Church, Purrdy Paws, Apex industrial condos, Parkview Plaza, and others… You will discover that real estate invention is happening all around you, and that there are many more models to choose from than you ever dreamed possible. Find out how to make your residential leases more like commercial ones so your tenants end up paying more of the costs of running your buildings.
Dr Firestone's courses and personal mentoring drastically reduce your learning curve for your next profitable real estate investment or development. His program will make you more money, and save on expenses—hands down. If you want to create wealth, this is your way forward.
Prof Bruce will show you, through his business and real estate investment coaching, how to create wealth over the long term as opposed to 'capture' it. There's a serious difference between the two (one is sustainable, the other is not).
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.
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.
Bruce Firestone’s keynote at the Growing Rural Tourism Conference in Camrose, Alberta was so inspirational and spellbinding that he almost sold me a campground in rural Ontario!
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 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.
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
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.
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!
I believe in mentors. If we all lived to be 300, then we wouldn’t need them—we could learn everything on our own. Coaches like Bruce are your shortcut to success—they are the least costly, highest ROI investment you will ever make.
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!
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.
