I'm Jeff, from Ottawa, Ontario. My wife and I own our primary residence, and hopefully by next summer will be ready to purchase a multi family. I've been studying up for a long time and ready to take the plunge once I can save up some funds, unless I can find a good hard money lender willing to make a deal.
I work in IT for the government, but my primary goal is to have enough properties that I can become FI and quit my day job to do this full time. Talking about real estate, properties, and financial independence is something I enjoy.
I listen to the BP Podcasts almost religiously. Also check out Matt McKeever on YouTube. He's from London, Ontario and has great weekly content on YouTube.
Nice to meet you, @Jeffrey Boudreau ! FYI, @Matt McKee ver is also on BiggerPockets, @Matt McKee :)
The BP podcasts are key. Also, if you're ever in London, Ontario - we have free meetup groups every month, it'd be great to meet you. They're on Facebook groups (check out "LDNonFIRE"). I've been investing for just over 2 years now, and have used the BRRRRR method to build a portfolio of 8 properties, 26 units here in London. I still work full-time, but have the option to quit. I'm house hacking in my duplex, and living for free! Feel free to reach out with any questions.

Thanks Kellan! I'm actually a part of the Facebook group, but not active in it. I mostly lurk while listening to podcasts or audio books. It's great to see Matt finally on here!
If I am ever in the area, I will definitely shout out to you guys.
