Toronto is a huge city with a lot of neighbourhoods. I have lived in many of them over the years. Here are some things to know about real estate investing in Toronto neighbourhoods. 1. The downtown core is a great place to invest in real estate. It is always growing and there are many businesses and jobs located in this area. 2. The suburbs are also a great place to invest in real estate. There are many families who are looking for new homes and the prices are usually lower than in the downtown core. 3. You need to be aware of the real estate prices in each neighbourhood and how yo analyze properties so you do not overpay. We help you with that with our pin point comparative market analysis tools. Toronto has been my home and I am glad to be in a multi-cultural society that offers something for everyone wishing to invest in real estate in our fascinating city. While living in the East York area of the Beaches as a teenager, I had a dream. I wanted to be the next student football athlete to receive a scholarship to the United States in the NCAA. So I traveled 3 hours a day to attend Michael Power high school. On January 7th, 1995, an opportunity arose... a full scholarship to Kent State University playing Division-1 Football. Talk about real estate investing and my new home for the ensuing 5 years! In the next five years, I broke all the tight end records in the school's history, got my finance degree and started an MBA in business. I was drafted by both the CFL and NFL in 2000, so I decided to play in the NFL. This meant I needed to move my real estate plans across the country. During my first year as a professional athlete, I played on the Baltimore Ravens during The Super Bowl game and our team won... what an amazing first year! My dream had come true. Now I could retire! Just kidding! Many years of playing football passed and i did got hurt and couldn't play anymore. So I decided to use my education background to invest and do something else. I began reading books on real estate investing and how to to get educated about my future. I decided to go back to class again and get my real estate license and look into how to buy real estate. I continued running and staying in shape in hope of a miracle from a doctor concerning my injury but at the same time preparing for life without football. Two years later, a renowned doctor by the name of Dr. James Andrews out of Birmingham Alabama, performed surgery and stated I was in optimum shape to resume my football career. Life had giving me a second chance at doing something I love to do. This opportunity was not going to be passed by. I travelled and my new real estate home guided me and I became a member of the BC Lions of the CFL. Guess what happened in my first year? That's right! I was in the championship game, the GREY CUP... another amazing experience! Through my football training experiences, I have learned what it meant to have desire, faith, specialized knowledge, imagination, decisiveness, persistence and discipline. I decided to be proactive about my future. I met and married my partner in life, Bernadette. She is an amazing woman who has supported my careers with an open mind and heart. I knew I could not be a professional athlete all my life, so I picked up the phone and spoke and interviewed and invested time with Real Estate Investment companies across the city. When the interview was complete, I was drafted yet again! Another dream come true! I have since used every waking moment to learn everything I can to have the ability to ask for referrals from my clients about real estate investing. I attend every real estate home inspection and negotiate at every offer presentations and results have been immeasurable. I continue to put it to good use helping people who need and deserve a special kind of real estate investing service here at KW (Keller Williams Referred Urban Realty).
