Welcome to the 200th episode of the Truth About Real Estate Show for Canadians! 🎉
It’s been an amazing run!
What started as a six-episode experiment back in early 2016, we managed to do something right, and here we are at 200 episodes!
I’ll start by explaining a lie I tell on the show: we have a few more than 17 listeners. 😃
Based on some of the stats I’ve looked up over the years, this podcast ranked 88th in the Business category in all of iTunes, this is a top 1% podcast in the world of podcasts, and we’ve ranked within the top three Canadian podcasts a couple of times.
I’ve even had a big-time podcast producer that works with publicly traded companies audit our show, and he was beyond impressed with our stats, sharing with me that our listening time was 2-3 times greater than that of his clients.
I tell this lie because the truth about real estate investing is that not all real estate investors want the attention and/or fear public speaking. So, if no one’s listening, there’s nothing to fear, right?
But some of you are listening, and I want to thank you for being our listener or watcher on YouTube.
Oh, by the way, a few months ago, we hired a fancy TV producer; hence you’ll notice our audio and video production has improved. Our videos are, of course, posted to YouTube at The Truth About Real Estate Investing.
Anyways, as the pandemic is winding down and you real estate investors, including our hundreds of investor clients, have benefited heavily from investing in land-based real estate.
No one could have predicted prices would go up like crazy as they have, but if you’ve followed the show, then you know all signs pointed that way, so I want to thank you for listening and taking action.
It has and always will be my honour to give back, share what I’ve learnt and continue to learn from our expert guests on this show.
I’m grateful to have this platform to pull together leading experts, especially as the pandemic started and our community was uneasy. We had to talk some investors off a ledge from selling out of fear.
Thankfully, things worked out, and they’ve added several hundreds of thousands of dollars to their net worth and financial peace.
Lessons From 200 Episodes With The iWIN Real Estate Team
To celebrate 200 episodes, I have my real estate team because they’re the ones who got us here, to share some lessons from the last five years and 200 episodes.
Five years is a milestone as we all have five year goals, and the team is here to share some investor stories from the last five years.
So with our biggest podcast in history in terms of people on the show, we have:
- Tammy “the Duplex Queen” Ditomaso
- James “Money Baggs” Maggs
- Tim “Clap Back” Hong. Tim is Clap Back as he has the wittiest comebacks.
- Joel Arndt, and
- Chris “The Captain” Hook
Special mention to Meaghan Robidas, who has been my Operations Manager for the last 7 years. Although she’s too shy to come on the show, that does not discount the importance she has in our success.
If you’re not sure what you can accomplish over the next five years or my 200 episodes, this episode will inspire some ideas.
Want to be a top 1% podcast? Host your own event to 1,600 people? Own 10 or more investment properties? It’s all possible!
It starts with the guts to do it, then the know-how and surrounding yourself with positive people. And I’ll always be here cheering for you. 😊
Just a friendly reminder that we are hiring for more investment Realtors who want a full-time challenge to help our clients, regular everyday people, mostly from the GTA, invest in the top investment towns west of the GTA.
This is for driven folks who want to multiply their current incomes a couple of times as James and Tammy have.
