How A Former Technology Executive Automates His Real Estate For Mega Savings and Profits with Christian Szpilfogel

Welcome to the Truth About Real Estate Investing Show where we’re here to learn to build wealth together.

Having wealth is great, being part of a community where your friends and family have financial freedom, well that’s just a lot more fun to be a part of in my opinion.

How is back to school for everyone?

Our kids’ classes start date was delayed which is fine. I can see all the precautions being made and I’m confident in our school and teacher that everything is being done.

No different than in business or investing or stock hacking, I took an analytical approach to our decision to send the kids back.  Note that we didn’t have to send the kids back as we have a full time nanny that the kids love and she loves our kids back the same. 

Science, stats, whatever you want to call it, our school and the neighborhoods that attend our kids’ school is in the bottom 10% of covid cases in Ontario.

We don’t have any elderly living in our home so no at risk groups will be exposed to greater risk being around my family. Our kids are skipping the school bus and instead bike about 10 mins to school under adult supervision which they are enjoying.  

So far so good. The kids are enjoying seeing their old friends and meeting new ones. 

To show our appreciation, Cherry and I have sent gift cards to the teachers and our Vice Principal.

We received back notes of thanks, one teacher stated how the gift cards will be used to purchase class materials. I’ve followed up asking both what materials they need. Cherry and I will donate some or all of them. 

To me, it’s the least we can do to give back after what has been a very successful six months for our real estate and stock hacking investments.

I mean, the government is pouring money into the schools for all the added expenses of cleaning, technology, personal protection equipment, etc…

As always, I believe we as private citizens need to step up and fill gaps when possible.

Same goes for our charity, the Hamilton Basket Brigade. 

The need is greater than ever, we have more challenges than ever to host an event for these families in need but we are making it happen.

We are hosting an outdoor BBQ in the lower city of Hamilton, shout out to Charles Wah for donating the use of his parking lot and bathrooms. 

The budget will be the same, the love and care will be the same, it will just mean fewer gifts, more gift cards and a lot more hand sanitizer 🙂  As always, we can’t wait to be the change we want to see in the world.

There is much to be thankful for after what I saw two weeks ago…

Two weeks ago, I volunteered to help an entrepreneurs’ group I’m a part of to check out potential office/event space to rent out. 

Typical me, I show up excited without thinking it through but what did we find? Lots of beautiful space.

But think about it… Who is giving up their office space?  Failed small businesses. 

It was the saddest experience for me, it was like hopping between funeral homes for small businesses and as a real estate investor, I ask the question, why the space became available?  

All these businesses no longer needed office space, some were on life support as their businesses were adversely affected and some simply moved to work from home.

Is it any surprise that August Go Transit ridership is 23% of what it was a year ago. 

As far as I can tell, it’s a complete renters market for office space downtown Toronto and I imagine the same for many of the urban centers across Canada.

It was in the news last week how a couple of the biggest companies in Canada including banks are subletting unneeded space in their Toronto offices. 

What a crazy world we live in!

Speaking of crazy or maybe not so crazy as it’s becoming a regular occurrence, Cherry beat me again the last two weeks of she trader vs. he trader.

Each week, her aggressiveness paid off, I think she beat me by around $2,000 US for each of the last two weeks. 

The positive feedback on the Stock Hacker Academy 2.0 continues to pour in. We had a client last week choose freedom over continuing at his day job in exchange for being a full time wealth hacker: both real estate investor and stock hacker.

I’ll have Joe on the show soon to share his story of how he obtained his freedom.

If you’re interested in learning more, I’m giving a demonstration, totally free over Zoom.

This demonstration is in crazy high demand, we’ve had to upgrade our Zoom account and it’s the last one we have planned for 2020.

If you don’t know the story, I showed my kid cousin Wil, he’s known as “Chubby” to his family.  Anyways, I taught him how to stock hack over Thanksgiving dinner, he’s a full time musician and in 15-30 mins per day, he’s able to cash flow over $1,000 per week all from his mobile phone. 

September 24th, 8 pm again is the last demo we have planned for the year followed by Stock Hacker Academy 2.0 Featuring “the Godfather of Stock Options” – Best Selling Author of Get Rich With Options Lee Lowell.  Links to register are in the show notes at
