I love these Listener Series episodes, because I get to chat with super inspirational podcast listeners like Tracy Ma who has built a stellar real estate portfolio over the past decade (and is sharing how the heck she did it).
First off, I love Tracy’s story because she is evidence that you do not need to come from money to get into the real estate game. As she put it, she had a fairly rough upbringing. Her family was poor, so she knew that in order to change her financial situation, she’d need to work hard and be strategic in terms of making her money grow. She was eventually led to real estate investing, and now owns a number of properties in Canada earning her passive income.
That all being said, she does caution anyone listening that real estate investing isn’t for everyone. There is a ton of risk involved, it can be very time-consuming and you really do need to know what you’re doing.
Luckily, she blogs about her journey and what she’s learned on her own blog Financial Nirvana Mama.
Thanks so much, Tracy for chatting with me for this episode, it was a pleasure!
