We’re going virtual for our second annual all-day Masterclass!

If you only go to *one* event this year – THIS IS THE ONE!

Come learn from the Volition team, Toronto’s real estate investment experts and organizers of the largest and most active Real Estate Investment Meetup in Toronto. We’ve helped clients generate $113M+ in wealth, and $10.3M+ in cashflow using these strategies and we are here to help you do the same.

Who this Masterclass is for:

  • If you are NEW to real estate investing and don’t know how to get started – this is the event for you!
  • If you are a SEASONED investor and are looking for ways to take your investing to the next level – this is the event for you!
  • If you have a partner, spouse, or family member who has RESERVATIONS about your desire to invest in real estate and is concerned that it’s too risky – this is the event for them!
  • If you ATTENDED LAST YEAR, COVID has changed the market – this is still the event for you!

What this Masterclass is about:

We have jammed years of experience and knowledge into one intense day of learning. We’ve distilled 5 years of Volition Meetup content down to the essentials. This course will cover THE BEST AND MOST RELEVANT content with a singular goal in mind – to give you the confidence and knowledge to be successful in 2021!

You’ll get answers to the MOST PRESSING QUESTIONS from investors, including:

  • What is the role of cashflow?
  • How can I quit my full-time job?
  • How does my real estate help me retire?
  • What is the difference between Cheap vs Value Investing?
  • How are sophisticated investors handling the current market?
  • What are the relevant factors that I should consider when investing in an area?
  • What fundamentals underpin a real estate market for long term sustainable growth?
  • What do more advanced business models (multifamily conversions, laneway housing) look like?
  • What kind of ROI can I expect and how does real estate compare to other investing methods?

This Masterclass IS:

  • A comprehensive course containing EVERYTHING you need to know to get started with your investing in 2021
  • Covering various real estate investment business models that work in Toronto, being used in 2020/21 by Volition investors
  • Your chance to learn real estate theory and fundamentals, and more importantly, how to APPLY them to the Toronto market to understand if Toronto is a market worth investing in
  • An opportunity for you to speak and network with successful investors that were in your shoes who took massive action, as well as other aspiring investors who are at the same level as you

This Masterclass is NOT:

  • A “get rich quick” scheme
  • How to flip houses for a quick buck
  • Trying to convince you that this is going to be an easy journey
  • Trying to convince you that wholesaling is easy and that anyone can do it
  • Endorsing $0 money down investment schemes or any other hair-brained “strategies”
  • Trying to repurpose US-based content or strategies specific to other provinces or small towns for Toronto
  • A theory-only seminar that only gives you high-level information about investing, but doesn’t make it relevant for you and the Toronto market

You’ll leave the session with a repeatable, risk-mitigated blueprint teaching you how to invest in real estate the right way. You’ll learn how real estate makes money, how to properly analyze properties, understand the cashflow myth, how to mitigate risk, and so much more!

How this Masterclass is run:

  • This all-day intensive is completely virtual
  • A mix of pre-recorded content and live sessions allowing for a streamlined approach and a chance to ask your questions and get answers in real-time, without detracting from the presentations
  • An expert panel of “Real People, doing Real $#!T” – they all started from somewhere different but have one thing in common, they took massive action!
  • Special guest speakers and experts on mortgage financing from VINE Group

NOTE: This event is FOR YOU! If there are burning questions you have that you would like addressed during the event, please email them to and we will do our best to incorporate them into the presentation.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. “There are only two types of real estate investors out there: ones who HAVE run out of money and ones who WILL run out of money.” Let’s all be the latter!!

If you’re a Real Estate Investor, you’ll know that financing is your biggest pain in the ass (next to tenants, of course!).

If you’re a Real Estate Investor, you’ll know that every property you buy makes it harder to buy the next one (because of the 50% rental offset and increased Debt Servicing).

If you’re a Real Estate Investor, you’ll know that you’re eventually going to hit the “Financing Wall”, and then no one will lend any more mortgages to you (number of doors policy, etc.).



We strive to solve problems, so we’re bringing in one of Canada’s top investor-focused mortgage experts to share secrets to help YOU purchase over and over again.

Jacob Perez, Partner at Synergy Mortgage Group, left his downtown Toronto tech career & scaled to 40+ Doors and Million+ Net Worth by the age of 30. In this presentation, he will show YOU how to reverse engineer the underwriting process to scale faster. He’ll cover:

– Setting yourself up for success by conducting a portfolio analysis before you start investing
– Making the most of your capital with the “BRRR Method”
– “Zero impact” properties, and how they allow you to purchase over and over at your maximum purchase price
– Refinancing multi-family properties
– What the implications are of legal vs. self-contained units
– How rental income plays a factor in your mortgage qualification
– How to win the appraisal process by mitigating risk and positioning your property to get the best results


About the speaker:

Jacob Perez has been featured on, the Matt McKeever Youtube Channel, Andrew Hines show, etc. Investing in Hamilton, ON since he was 22 years old, Jacob leveraged the BRRR strategy to grow his portfolio (40+ doors) and list of Joint Venture partners. In 2018 he began as a Mortgage Agent, partnered with Synergy Mortgage Group and opened his investor-focused brokerage which helps over 500+ investors every year in Ontario. Jacob teaches strategies to reverse engineer the mortgage process that enable everyday people to grow huge portfolios.

We may be biased, but we believe investor agents make the best “normal” agents.
Here are some questions we can help you answer when you make what is likely THE BIGGEST PURCHASE OF YOUR LIFE!
  • Does this property hold to long term appreciation fundamentals?
  • Does it require construction? How much are those things going to cost?
  • Can I have a secondary suite to help with cash flow? How much are rents? What tenant profiles will I get?
  • How can my primary residence help me qualify for investment properties in the future? HELOC? Secondary suites?

Do you know how to protect yourself as a landlord?
Do you know what it takes to avoid “professional” and “predatory” tenants?
Did you know that the Ontario Landlord Tenant Board laws heavily favours the tenants?

Tenants have always been one of, if not THE BIGGEST risks to your real estate investing business. Mix in a global pandemic resulting in people losing their jobs, and a backlog of cases at the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) and things are even more skewed against landlords.

Learn from the incredible Veteran Landlord Legal Representative, Steven J. Smith, in this important session about how to protect yourself with full knowledge of the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA), and what is going on in our COVID impacted world.

You’ll also hear some stories about the good, the bad and the ugly side of tenant management, as well as what we can learn from each scenario. When we spoke with Steven, he had a whopping 350 cases on his desk – his time is incredibly valuable, you do not want to miss this session!

Steven’s firm has always had an educational approach assisting Clients in correcting defective processes that they may be engaging which is often the root of many of the problems Landlord’s face. Steven’s educational approach extends to doing sessions for Landlord Groups and also for Real Estate Brokerages in aid of overcoming the significant deficiency of most of the Real Estate community in their understanding and working knowledge of how the process works and how the Law is applied.

Steven has an RTA Landlord package that corrects the deficiencies in the Standardized lease (the package retails for $80.00 inclusive of HST) and recently has developed a strategy for purchase and sale cases that is exclusive to his firm and deals with the delay getting a hearing in a timely manner.
