Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing with Jonathan Greene

035: A Taste of Canadian Real Estate Investing with Daniel Foch and Nick Hill


A lot of new real estate investors make the mistake of believing it’s passive income. Doing real estate the right way means being involved–especially if you’re new to investing. And you should treat it like any other entrepreneurial venture because it’s a business like any other.

While handling your real estate business alone is tempting, your strengths and weaknesses will become more prominent with time, like any business. Hiring or partnering with someone with different strengths than you could be the best business decision you’ll ever make.

In this episode of Zen and the Art of Real Estate, Jonathan welcomes two guests, Daniel Foch and Nick Hill, hosts of the successful podcast The Canadian Real Estate Investor. Daniel and Nick tell Jonathan how they each got started in real estate, why they decided to become business partners, and their words of wisdom for beginning investors.
