Donal Ward-McCarthy is a long-time REIN member and real estate agent at Right At Home Realty Inc. He grew up in Cork City, Ireland and started his real estate journey at the age of 22 after his mother passed away and he was left with a modest real estate portfolio. Donal marks this period of his life as a crucial turning point and, after moving to Toronto in 2003, he continued to pursue education in real estate investing.
After attending a REIN seminar in 2004, Donal found that REIN’s in-depth level of research and economic fundamentals were a perfect fit for his own analytical style. With these solid fundamentals to build on, along with the support of a like-minded community, Donal felt the confidence to take action and began to build his now substantial real estate portfolio.
On the latest episode of The Everyday Millionaire, Donal shares his Irish heritage and the many valuable gifts he received from his late mother. He recounts the story of how he first came to Canada, as well as how he first got started in real estate and the impact of longevity. Donal also discusses the ways in which he supports his own growth mindset and positive attitude for long-term and well-rounded success. He talks about the importance of creating a vision and a “why”, shares his insight into the main barrier he sees for real estate investors, and more.
