    • [06:54] After a nudge from his mortgage broker/realtor Adrian decided to take a leap of faith (with both feet!) into real estate investing and started his search for rental property that led him to the Hamilton, Ontario. Adrian further discusses his process with learning about the business of real estate investing.
    • [10:56] Leaving the police department in 2017, Adrian turned his attention fully to his investment real estate with a focus on Hamilton, joint venture partnerships and optimizing the BRRRR strategy – Buy, Renovate, Rent, Re-finance, Repeat! After the first five, Adrian and his wife quicky and significantly scaled their business to where it is today.
    • [15:06] Though Adrian and his family were not traditionally entrepreneurial-minded, he attributes his jump into the business of real estate to his vision. Hear how Adrian describes his approach, mindset, and willingness to take action.

    • [37:05] Getting back to a winning team, Adrian’s approach has been primarily to build from within. To build a “Costco” one-stop shop from purchase to management to maintenance, all led with an abundance mindset.
