Barry McGuire while at law school, had his first opportunity to invest in real estate. He had a friend who seemed to be buying every house near the University of Alberta, renting it out and building a real estate empire. McGuire was a student and needed a place to stay while going to law school, so he used his student loan for the down payment and quickly found five other students who also needed a place to stay. The positive cash flow was tremendous and replaced the missing student loan. Better yet, three years later, the property had tripled in value!
This early lesson was not forgotten, and Barry continues to enjoy a diversified real estate investment portfolio. Thirty years later, Barry's legal practice3 is focused exclusively on real estate.
Over the years, Barry has had extensive involvement with he Alberta Real Estate Association in preparing and teaching credit courses for real estate agents. He has also taught these courses for the real Estate Training Institute, an independent trainer of real estate professionals.
In his daily legal practice at Ritchie ill Law Office in Edmonton, Alberta, Barry loves to assist clients with the planning and consulting issues that help ensure successful real estate purchases. He believes that a sound education in real estate fundamentals is one of the best tools in any real estate investor's toolbox.
