Glen’s Bio

Glen Sutherland is a real estate investor from Cambridge, ON where he lives with his wife and two terrific children. He started his investing journey 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.
