Scott McGillivray was born in April 7, 1978, and is trained as a carpenter and graduated with honors from the University of Guelph. He is married to Sabrina, a school teacher, and the two reside in Ontario. His interest in real estate business began way back when he was still a university student pursuing Marketing Management. He was teamed up with Michael Sarracini in a project aimed at helping homeowners make some money from their homes. The two realized that there was great potential in this, and soon enough, owned and rented out their first house. He and Michael then proceeded to start a business based on this and along the way collected a lot of knowledge on what really worked and what failed in this business. He has shared his all his experienced in Scott McGillivray books. His books contain innovative strategies on how and where to start with real estate ventures. These strategies are easy to follow and are quite effective.
His interest in learning interior design in order to enhance his skills led him to Debbie Travis. He was involved in the ‘Debbie Travis’s Facelift’ show, from where his big break on TV started. Scott McGillivray then appeared on ‘From the Ground Up’ as a project manager, and in January 2009, his own show ‘Income Property’ debuted on HGTV. It suffices to say that the man has simply never looked behind again, with his show attracting wide audiences not only in North America but also across Europe. His profit making strategies are quite popular worldwide. He has followed this up with co-authoring several books to help individuals earn additional money without huge investments. Scott McGillivray books include Cash Flow for Life, Quick Cash for Life, and the Investors Toolkit, which as a package provide everything one needs to establish a successful real estate business.
Any Scott McGillivray review probably dwells on the ‘Income Property’ show and maybe his books, but the man also has several other income generating ventures. He manages over 20 properties with over 100 tenants. Besides this, he also has a home study real estate course titled ‘The Successful Landlord’ where he provides training to home owners on real estate business. He conducts this course alongside his business partner Michael Saracini. The success story of Scott McGillivray is largely dependent on his wide knowledge, laid-back approach to life and selfless attitude.
