Student Cash Flow Investing w/ Tim JP Collins

Tim ( is my friend who was introduced to me years ago by his real estate coach and best-selling author Julie Broad because Tim needed help acquiring quality investment properties in Hamilton after his first purchase did NOT go so well.

Tim was born in Canada but grew up in the UK. Tim then came back to Canada in 1998 to follow his hockey dream and played Jr A for the Trenton Sting. He is now the father to three young boys, living with his wife in beautiful Nanaimo, BC for now. Soon they are taking the family travelling to England, back to Ontario, then a road trip down the west coast, including Central America.

Tim has 15 years in sales and management experience in the IT industry and uses these skills in Real Estate to be a strong negotiator and build great relationships in a variety of areas. Tim recently left his job to focus on real estate investing full time and other business ventures. Tim focuses on student rental properties to fulfill high demand and produce strong cash flow in great areas.

Tim is the authority on Student Rentals as he is regularly featured in Canadian Real Estate Wealth Magazine and just recently on British Broadcasting Channel on the subject of student rentals. He focuses on building his investment portfolio with joint venture partners, while also helping others with coaching, online courses and workshops available at Tim speaks regularly at Real Estate investing meetings and was the recipient of Mr Hamilton’s investor of the year for 2014.

This episode is brought to you by Paramount Equity Financial Corporation: 

Paramount is a massively disruptive (in a good way) set-it-and-forget-it investing service where investors have been earning double digit returns, paid each month since 2006. Paramount has exploded in popularity in the last few years and now has more than $800 million in assets under management. Why invest? Because you can now get investments previously limited to high net worth individuals, there are no additional fees, and it’s all through simple to understand Canadian real estate instead of large, complex development projects that come with large, complex risks and costs.

I like Paramount so much that I went out and got my mortgage license so I could bring these opportunities to my friends and family, and many of my closest investor friends swear by Paramount. I told my own mother about it and she too will be taking money out of the public markets and investing with Paramount.
