Jon Simcoe - Lion Properties Ltd.
Jon Simcoe started his first business at age twelve. He marketed, using bulletin boards, and advertised grass cutting and landscaping services. Bill and Donna Bradley, a team of the top realtors in Canada, saw Jon’s ad and put him to work. What started as lawn maintenance and weed pulling at vacant for-sale properties, evolved into security checks once Jon got his driver’s license.
At 23 years of age, Jon got out of university with architecture as his main subject of study. He quickly paid off his student debt by working three jobs and got into his first joint venture on a property in Winnipeg. This was a fantastic opportunity for Jon and his joint venture partner, Justin Valmont, as they were able to fix up the home and rent it out for the next three years. They sold it, and both were 26 when they spent the profits on their dream sports cars: a Porsche for Jon and a Dodge Viper for Justin.
Jon became a full-time entrepreneur by age thirty. After extensive financial education and training, he founded Lion Properties Ltd., to serve others who wanted to earn the returns that are possible with real estate. He is best known for the tenant first rent-to-own strategy. He also uses other strategies to help his joint venture partners, some of which include: building from the ground up, buy and hold, and fix-and-rent-out. He specializes in how to grow RRSP, LIRA, RESP, and TFSA funds, using real estate. To date, Jon has transacted 58 real estate deals, and raised over $11,000,000 in capital.
Topic: Rent-to-Own and RRSP
Participants will learn how the rent-to-own strategy works. Jon will share actual numbers and profits. He will also focus on how to grow RRSP funds, using real estate investing.
