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.
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.
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!
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).
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
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
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 thoroughly enjoyed the Realtopia 2018 event. I could not help but pay attention to every word spoken by Prof Bruce and his crew. I can tell you—everyone else was paying attention too. Prof Bruce should do Sunday sermons—our church would be packed! It’s a great concept having an income during your retirement years by simply owning enough high-producing, ‘animated’ property. It make’s one rethink the whole RRSP/mutual fund investment concept.
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.
