“Real estate investment with Bruce Firestone has been a great experience. When I first came to Bruce, I explained to him our current situation and that I was looking to expand my real estate portfolio. At that time, I was basically out of ideas—my wife and I had purchased triplex in Little Italy and it was doing ok, but I thought we could be doing better. I thought it was probably time to move on to a new investment but Prof Bruce opened my eyes to a new concept—one he calls “animation.” Instead of immediately moving on to a new property, we examined my current rental property. How could we animate it? We looked at various options. In the end we ended up converting two of the three units into Airbnb suites. We've now increased our cash low from that property by a factor of 10!” Dave B, technology worker, real estate investor

It was a very important lesson to me, that you’ve just got to push through, no matter what could be on the other side,” Paul C, former public servant, engineer and novice real estate investor
