Here’s What You’ll Learn in our Interview with Matt and Laura Hawkins

About our Guests

Matt and Laura are serial entrepreneurs who started investing in real estate in 2004 at the age of 19. They own a thriving construction company in Stouffville called Hawkins Contracting and are addicted to real estate. Their real estate portfolio currently contains a mix of student rentals in Guelph and Peterborough and duplexes and triplexes in Lindsay, Peterborough and Hamilton. They love digging into the numbers, are skilled in managing large renovations and like most busy investors, are constantly searching for the highest and best use of their time. Recently, they have settled into a pattern of purchasing tired bungalows for duplex/triplex conversions, sometimes with garage conversions to garden suites and larger student rentals. They are about to get started on two newly built garden suites in Peterborough and have multiple projects on the go and are always on the look for their next deal. Matt and Laura self-manage almost all of their properties (with the help of some key contacts!) and love to connect with other investors and talk all things real estate. Matt and Laura have 3 young kids, who love to stay active and be outdoors and mountain bike at any chance they can get!
