297: How to Invest in US Real Estate as a Canadian with Glen Sutherland
Pros and Cons of being a Canadian Investor in the US Market Glen Sutherland is a real estate investor from Wellesley, ON (outside of Waterloo) where he lives with his wife and two terrific children. He started his investing journey by purchasing 'buy and hold' rental real estate locally. After a lot of research, he learned of more favourable laws, lower property taxes, and lower cost of entry south of the border. These factors make for greater ease of wealth creation. These days, Glen is investing in the US by buying, renovating, refinancing to grow his rental real estate portfolio. He also hosts the Podcast and YouTube channel entitled, "A Canadian Investing in the US", where he provides information and advice to investors interested in investing in both Canada and the US. He enjoys the privilege of sharing his knowledge with others.

295: Why Doing Your Own Media Makes Sense with Jas Takhar
Media to do or not to do? Jas Takhar is a Toronto native and has been in the sales and service industry for over 27 years. Soon after deciding to try his hand in real estate, he founded REC Canada under Royal LePage, and for over 5 years has successfully kept his team in the top 3 in the country. With 54 realtors and 11 support staff, the team advises and assists over 625 buyers, sellers and investors, yearly, across the Greater Toronto Area, resulting in a total of over $2.1B in transactions. This year alone Jas’ core sales team has done over $300 million in sales. Jas’ area of expertise is in helping investors build out their real estate portfolios. Wanting to share his knowledge and experience with the masses, he wrote a book titled, Real Estate Intelligence, which teaches anyone how to buy or sell real estate on their own. Furthering his pursuit to educate and motivate, he developed a love for content creation, and now not only hosts one of the top business podcasts in North America – The Jas Takhar Podcast – but also founded his own media company, From The Ground Up Media where he helps other real estate agents produce quality content. His hope is to provide inspiring education through his guides, seminars, and content to aid others in removing the friction from their own life in order to help them get from where they are, to where they want to be.

Larger is not better when it comes to urban house design. Naama has a bold vision: to change what good development can and should look like; with that in mind, she co-founded Smart Density. Her professional work spans across planning and architecture, and by marrying the two disciplines, she brings a deeper and more realistic understanding of how municipal policies take physical shape. Naama is a subject-matter expert for the City of Toronto “Expanding Housing Options in our Neighborhoods” committee, a board member of Kehilla, an Affordable Housing provider, co-authored the Housing Affordability Report of the Ontario Association of Architect, and served at the Design Review Panel of the City of Burlington, where she provided Urban Design advice for development applications. She practices what she preaches, and lives with her husband and child in a multi-family building in a transit-accessible area of Toronto, where the park is their back yard.
