Key Takeaways: 

“I guess my tolerance, and my risk level, potentially is a little bit different than other people’s, being a police officer and whatnot. Long story short, that kind of led me to the wonderful City of Hamilton where I bought my first rental property.” – Adrian Pannozzo 

“Why Hamilton, it was really just centered around the numbers, like the return on investment and cash flow in Hamilton, superseded York Region where I was living.” – Adrian Pannozzo 

“I guess just my personality, and I’m not the kind of guy to sit on the fence forever, I dive into it. And at the time, I didn’t really know Hamilton, the city at all more. I was wanting to jump into it and believe in the system, believe in the numbers, and knock on wood, it all worked out.”  – Adrian Pannozzo 

“How did I bring joint venture partners on board? We started marketing ourselves. I got into business with Sandy. And he put me on the podcast. It resonated with people, I guess my background and my story of a retired police officer, full-time investor, and the wanting to get into business together. So, in 2017, when the market was on fire back then, things took off for joint venture partnering.”  – Adrian Pannozzo 

“Joint venture is partnering up with an expert that can teach you and coach you, but also be your business partner, and buy properties together.”  – Adrian Pannozzo 

“The joint partners they’re bringing the capital, and power team we have behind us to essentially deliver, I want to say, upwards of 95 plus percent ROI, incorporating our strategy with the BRRRR method.”  – Adrian Pannozzo 

“Hands-Free, hassle-free, completely passive income for our investors. Many of them say I’d like to learn along the way because, potentially maybe I want to do it on my own. I tell most investors, absolutely you could; you can be a sponge and soak up as much information as you want. All our secrets are shared with you along the way for sure.” – Adrian Pannozzo
