My name is Viplav Naik, and I am a university student studying Real Estate Management at Ryerson University located in Downtown Toronto, Canada.  I am going into my junior year of studies, and I am also trying to pursue a career in real estate.  Overall, I am just in the process of learning more about the field and I found BiggerPockets as a source to gain more information.  My dad is also a real estate agent who focuses mainly on residential estate and land lording.  Because of him, I have gained a very unique interest in the field.

Right now, I obviously don’t have any resources of my own to start investing.  However, I am just looking for any tips and suggestions on how I can get more involved in the field and continue to earn more knowledge.  Any tips or advices are welcome.

Thank you.

 Hello and welcome! Best of luck to you!

Step one, if you have not already done so, is learn the Ontario Residential Tenancy Act and attend a few Landlord Tenant Board hearings to get a feel for the process.

Socialist Ontario is very pro tenant as you likely know so it is most important that new investors be armed and ready.
