The Mothers of Real Estate (M.O.R.E.) With Monika, Gillian and Rachel

Welcome, Wealth Hackers!

Happy Belated Fathers Day to all the great fathers out there and the mothers pulling double duty; I don’t know how you do it.

A quick word on children and making the world a better place, here’s a quote from Saifedeine Ammous’ book, “The Bitcoin Standard”:

“A society in which individuals bequeath their children more than what they received from their parents is a civilized society;

It is a place where life is improving, and people live with a purpose of making the next generation’s lives better” ~ Saifedean Ammous.

That’s pretty cool, eh?

That’s what great about you… You’re here investing in yourself to get educated, get inspired to invest in real estate, stock hacking, whole life insurance, new businesses to get ahead in life and provide better futures for your families.

For many of the rich, the more you make, the more you give. Warren Buffet just announced a $4.1 billion donation of Berkshire Hathaway shares to charity.

Note, he’d rather donate the money than let it go to the government via tax because, in my experience, a well-operated charity with low overhead costs is infinitely more effective than the government.

But first things first, you have to be rich with assets to have the option to choose where your money goes.

Cherry and I plan to leave eight figures to the Hamilton Basket Brigade, the charity we operate with next to no overhead costs as almost everything is donated and no one is on a payroll. 

The eight figures of capital will form a charitable foundation meaning the capital is not spent but rather invested. The proceeds from the investing, specifically stock hacking, will provide the operating budget for the charity.

The Hamilton Basket Brigade will then spend the budget on clothing, shoes, backpacks, food, whatever the children of Hamilton need. That will be our contribution to the next generation and all future generations.

We will also teach our kids to be grateful for all they have and the importance of giving to the less fortunate. Hopefully, they will go on to grow the charity and continue to improve society for future generations. 

That is our mission, and if it’s not them, it will be someone else because it must be done. We can’t rely on the government or even other charities; the WE Charity scandal should be enough to make anyone skeptical.

As the reopening of Canada and Ontario continues, we plan to run events in person again once we are legally able to. 

Cherry and I thankfully have both our covid shots.

Right now, I’m fully vaccinated and grateful. Not gonna lie, I cried a bit, maybe a lot after my 2nd shot. It’s such a relief knowing my personal pandemic is over, and I’m not at risk to our clients, our staff, my family, etc…

I have the same vaccines in me as the Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel: AstraZeneca and Moderna. If it’s good enough for the leader of the fourth largest economy in the world and largest in the European Union, it’s good enough for me.

I took the first shots available to me at the shortest interval possible of exactly eight weeks. I have no interest in being hospitalized by whatever variants are coming into our country knowing our borders are pretty open.

My friend’s mom was even on a plane from Mexico full of folks connecting from their country of origin which has banned direct flights to Canada because that country is where one of the worst variants was discovered that crushed their medical system.

All the adults in my family have double shots now, and I can’t wait to host my niece for a sleepover party this weekend.

The kids are all beyond excited, and it will be fun to entertain the family at what I call “A cottage experience,” which is our home only 40 mins from the city.  

Life is getting back to normal, and I can’t wait to enjoy a normal summer. I hope the same for all of you out there as well, a safe and enjoyable summer!

The Mothers of Real Estate (M.O.R.E.) With Monika, Gillian and Rachel

On to this week’s show!!

Fresh off the golf course from a golf lesson, we have The Mothers of Real Estate. 

If you are watching on our Truth About Real Estate Investing YouTube channel, please pardon our attires as these moms are busy having ten kids in total between the three of them and running real estate empires.

We came directly from golf to record this episode, so we’re dressed casually, lol.

Gillian Irving shouldn’t need any introduction. She’s returning now for the third time on the show as a successful student rentals investor, cryptocurrency investor, small business owner and mom to four kids.

Monika Jazyk prefers buy and hold and, more recently, passively investing her capital into storage and industrial warehousing to be less hands-on and more time at home to be with her four kids.

Rachel Oliver has also been on the show before, and we mastermind together. She and her husband Neil Oliver own the largest rent to own business in Canada with a 90% successful buyout rate by the tenants for a truly win-win-win business model for her, her investor partners, and the tenant.

We discuss if now is the right time to buy real estate, what their parents taught them about money, if there are barriers to mothers investing and what they are teaching their kids about investing and life.

Please enjoy the show as it was a fun one to record 🙂

We’re hiring!

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.

We have been awarded Realtor of the Year to Investors in 2015 by the Real Estate Investment Network, 2016 by the Canadian Real Estate Wealth Magazine and again in 2017 because no one told the judges no one is supposed to win the award twice but on merit, our peers deemed us as the best.  In 2018, we again won the same award by the Real Estate Investment Network.

Hopefully being the most decorated team of Realtors in Ontario will make you consider us for your first or next real estate investment.  Even if you don’t invest in our areas, there’s a good chance I know who would be ideal for you. 

I’ve been around for a while, some Realtors are talented at servicing investors there are many with great ethics.  The intersection of the two, talent and ethics is limited to a handful in each city or town.

Only work with the best is what my father always taught me.  If you’re interested, drop us an email at

I hope to meet you at one of our meetups soon.
