What happens when you give a couple of young gun real estate investors a couple of microphones and an hour to chat?
You get THIS EPISODE of the RevNYou with Real Estate Podcast!
Host Doug Meyers sits down with a fellow millennial investor, Russell Mortlock, of Mortlock Group Investments.
It’s always fun to share the podcast space with other young and hungry, easy to chat to people in the real estate investing space, and Russell is exactly that.
The 26 year old Medicine Hat native was working as a pipe fitter after finishing up a Junior Hockey League career, making a quality income but not falling into the trap of the work hard, play hard lifestyle that many of those around him were partaking in. Instead, he versed himself in financial matters, namely real estate investing, and started saving his way toward his first rental property.
Fast forward 3 short years and Russell has established a solid portfolio for his age and, perhaps more importantly, given himself the opportunity to pursue his passions in real estate by moving to Kelowna, BC to begin a new career as a Realtor and real estate investor.
Our conversation centres predominantly around what it’s like to get in the real estate investing game early and what it’s like to be an investor in your 20s, so if you’re someone in the same boat (or perhaps the parent of a 20-something young adult who’s trying to work things out) this is going to be a great episode to listen to.
Russell’s real estate investing origin story A look at Russell’s portfolio including strategies used and why he chose them. Why you should start investing in real estate as soon as possible. The advantages of being a young investor. The struggles / challenges of being a young investor. What young investors should do to get started if real estate investing is something they want to pursue.
