Strong professional background and daiy hard work allowed Valeri to build a very successful career as an IT professional in the Canadian banking industry. He started with a full time job and quickly switched to be a self-employed IT contractor working for major banks. Valeri fully resigned from his IT job in spring 2013.
Along with his successful IT, career Valeri started investing in real estate with the purchase of a rental condo in 2008, followed by a few single family houses. Even with a few properties under his belt he still had some issues with tenants. That brought him to conclusion that he needed to treat his investments as a business and helped him learn more about the real estate investment business. That is why Valeri joined and completed all the live real estate related courses at Rich Dad Education in Canada and established his own real estate investment business. Part of the educational program was to work with a mentor. That opened his eyes on importance of having the right coach that can help you establish a clear vision, build a sustainable investment business and deal with every day challenges.
A desire to grow his real estate investment career, continue his on-going education and seek out opportunities to connect with likeminded investors brought Valeri to become a member of the well- respected and growing community of REIN in 2013.
Besides learning and growing in his own business, Valeri has strong desire to help others in the investment community either to get started or transition to the multi-family side of the investment business.
How Your Coach will Help You Win:
Life offered Valeri a number of challenges to overcome before coming to Canada. That’s where Valeri learned that knowledge, experience and strong determination followed by action play the main roles in success.
Valeri strongly believes in the power of “WHY that makes you CRY”. Literally.
Real estate investment has a lot of moving parts, obstacles, challenges, hurdles etc. to go through. Occasionally, it seems too much or even impossible to overcome. To be successful, you have to have a strong enough WHY to tell yourself “No matter what, I’m going to get through it!” Or have somebody around to remind you about their life purpose and WHY.
As he started from nothing himself, Valeri knows how hard it is to get started and the importance of help at that stage. With the help of the right coach, persistence and focused action, it’s more than possible to achieve much better results, and much faster.
Valeri’s knowledge and experience in the real estate profession can help you with the following matters:
o How to evaluate and buy the right single family or multi-family property for you o How to buy and benefit from distressed properties o Financing options and strategies o Due diligence and closing o Property management approaches and techniques o What to do with problematic tenants o Transitioning your real estate life and business from part time to full time
The insights you may get from Valeri go well beyond the real estate business itself, to everything that surrounds it:
o Long term sustainable wealth building o Strategic investments o Asset protection o And much more…
Valeri is continuously learning from the knowledge and experience of successful long term real estate entrepreneurs who survived many real estate cycles and he is ready to assist you in building your sustainable real estate portfolio. “It’s Not About How Much You Have But Who You Are."
Valeri has a Silver REIN Multi-Family Pin with a substantial portfolio of single family and multi-family properties located in Southwestern Ontario. Prior to joining the REIN community, Valeri completed all live real estate related courses through Rich Dad Education of Canada and formed his own real estate investment business.
In order to stay on top of the game and deliver the best results, Valeri continuously learns from attending various real estate related seminars, events and meetings.
