Tom Karadza – From Zero to Profit 500 REI Business

This week, we have a very special guest in Tom Karadza (, co-founder and co-owner on Rock Star Real Estate, a two time Profit 500 company, which makes Rock Star one of the 500 fastest growing companies in Canada. Rock Star manages a membership of over 800 investors called the Rock Star Inner Circle and you can learn more about it on their website

Even though Rock Star members invest in every real estate strategy imaginable, they are best known for rent-to-own, having members transacted on 1,800 – 2,000 rent-to-owns to date. If anyone out there has done more in Canada, kindly let me know because I don’t think any other group or company comes close.

During this interview we talk about the day Tom was yelled at in front of his co-workers for missing a sales target which was the catalyst for Tom to change paths and begin his and brother Nick’s journey to starting Rock Star Real Estate.


We talk about the investment of Tom’s money, time, but more importantly, the sacrifices of family time and health to take the business where it is and shares his lessons learned. We talk about rent to own as a strategy, how it works, which markets the strategy is best for, what makes certain investors successful or not so.

For fans of gold and silver, like myself, Tom gives his recommendations on why gold and how much we should own.

We could have gone on for hours, so if you listeners enjoy this episode please let me know! preferably leave a review on whichever platform you are using to listen e.g. on iTunes (I read it all) or simply email me. Anyways, without further ado, I present to you Tom Karadza
