When I first started planning to produce a podcast, I had targeted Pierre-Paul Turgeon because he is a tremendous educator and his experience and background is like no other apartment building investor that I know. I first saw Pierre speak at the real estate investment network many years ago while he still worked at CMHC who insures mortgages on apartment buildings and I am in awe of how he left his cushy government job and has grown his portfolio to 160 doors valued in excess of $22 million dollars. Pierre is a busy guy so we’re really lucky to have him on the show as he’s in the middle of acquiring more buildings thanks to the several millions of dollars of capital he has attracted.
Something of note since the interview is Pierre mentions he has more than usual vacancies due to the down turn of oil prices and since this interview, Fort McMurray has been decimated by forest fires and what does a super awesome guy like Pierre-Paul do? He’s offering his apartments to displaced families for at least the next two months for FREE. That’s worth thousands and thousands of dollars so next time you hear someone ragging on greedy landlords, remember there are great people out there like Pierre-Paul.
In this episode, we discuss:
