Brian Persaud is a Toronto based real estate agent, investor, analyst, TV show host, producer and author of the forthcoming book Profitable Investing in Condominiums: Strategies, Tips and Expert Advice for the Canadian Real Estate Investor.
Brian is the first born of immigrant parents who constantly put pressure on him to become a doctor to relieve the financial strain faced by his family. After much hard work, he earned his way into the premiere pre-med program in the country: bio-physics at the University of Toronto. While working full time in order to pay for his tuition and expenses, managing a packed course load, and barely sleeping more than 3 hours a day, a close friend insisted he make the time to read Kiyosaki’s immortal book Rich Dad Poor Dad. This proved to be a turning point in Brian’s life.
Brian immediately began the search for investment properties. In a short time and on a shoestring student budget, he discovered and secured an investment property. He had found his true calling. After his initial success, Brian began tackling bigger and bigger projects, buying multiple properties at the same time, with forays into subdivision and resort development. This was just the beginning: he quit his day job as a collections agent for Otis Elevators Canada.
From humble beginnings, Brian has developed a strong specialty in real estate investment management. From managing single family residential homes to multi-unit apartment buildings, to high-rise and subdivision development, Brian uses a disciplined due diligence process, targets under-valued and under-performing assets in carefully selected markets across Toronto to grow his real estate investment portfolio.
