Warning.  be very careful.  this guy is banned from re-entering the US! he'll never tell you the reasons why!  ask him to show you his mansion in canada if hes a multi-millionaire like he claims.  

This guy had worked with martel (2010), mmg (2011), created all these outfits every year since to sell pipedreams to canadians.  guy claims to have moved billion dollars of property every 90 days.  but has no money to pay his staff.  heard through the grapevine supposedly  he owes affiliates tens of thousands in unpaid affiliate and marketing fees for packing rooms. always blames his partners aka financial partners who are bankrolling his lifestyle.  

he will use you to get access to your lists and database of clients and soak them dry on the backend sales pitch of investing in florida, vegas, phoenix, atlanta and tenesee for $7500-$25000. He Owns NO US investment properties.  ask him to show you deeds and hud 1 on the so called deals!  ask him how many properties does he own/control using the strategies he teaches?

 he's very crafty and dodgy and dances around the answer.  lost his entire portfolio but tells people he sold off.  known to argue and use nlp tactics.  makes most of his money selling thousand dollar trainings and upsells you on buying mls properties, land and so-so deals from wholesalers his guys call outta of the yellow pages or off the street from bandit signs.  disorganised.

his teams have no financing and he misleads you on no money down investing to get you to part ways from your money and your on your own unless u help sell training courses for him.   http://www.worldadvantagemembers.com/
none of these people seem to have stuck around.  looks like they rebranded into this outfit http://www.canadianalliancenetwork.com/

$7500 trip is rip off?

AUTHOR: michael - ()

when search glen purdy I got another guy call mike wolf. he said will teach me how to buy us real estate for free.

after email him asking few question. he is using Canadian way to invest in US real estate. not American way to invest real estate.

as first post AUTHOR: rpr - ()

I know the trip is expensive but it would be the fee for you to get below wholesale price for real estate. would It worth it?  I said yes at less you know whole sale property and may be you have the connection in the future.

like would you buy at $100k or $200k for about same property? it is your choice.

and the rpr does not think out of box.  yes no one would give you free stuff, so expecte it. you think they make money though out the caninvestinc sure they are, otherwise what would it for. business are created to make profit not give away profit.  but would it worth or them to spend money to make this small amount of money? I do not think so. glen purdy said "time is way more valueable then money!" why becuase you can make more money!

like if you drain is broken, would you fix it your self and spend time and trip to store to buy things your need to fix it or would you hired other people to fix it right at first time. by saving your self time.  if you fix your self, and you did not fix right, more money need to be fix it so does the time.

Be Aware of Great Salesteam Who Blindsides You

AUTHOR: rpr - ()

I attended Caninvest Seminar and was looking for specific information for which I discussed in a lengthy telephone conversation prior to attending including a money back discussion if not satisfied.

From the moment the speaker started on day one he was setting the people up to take the upsell of their products after the weekend was over. I never learned what I went there for. They offer a 7500.00 fee per person per city to go show you property's to purchase. Think about it your paying them 7500.00 to buy a property through them. If you think that is ok then the next time you go look for a property in the city you live in give your realtor 7500.00 to show you that property. Remember Caninvest makes off the sale from you also not just the 7500.00. Glen Purdy is a very good speaker but doesn't deliver if you listen closely. Paid 1000.00 and no handouts were given. It was all verbal. One of his team members was selling his own land in Florida at the back of the room.

People wake up out there and learn to discern. Just because someone is a very good speaker look at the whole picture. You don't have to pay a realtor to show you property's. There are many good realtors in the city's they talk about. RUN RUN

Glenn Purdy

AUTHOR: Richard and Karen - ()

My wife and I attended a 3 day weekend real estate course a few months ago where Glenn Purdy was the trainer.

We've attended many other seminars (Rich Dad, Tigrent, REIN, EREM - Everyday Real Estate Millionaires, and a few others). We own several rental properties in Canada already. We were looking to get into the US so we took Steve Martels course and then CanInvest (ie. Glenn Purdy).

Here's the quick summary so far:

Rich Dad (Tigrent): decent content but overpriced for what you get - their main objective is to sell you more bootcamps up to $60K = Not recommended.

REIN: Great for beginner to intermediate, however it has recently gone in the wrong direction with their new president (Richard) = Recommended for the Canadian research and the Acre weekend for beginners.

EREM: Great: Recommended for the intermediate to advanced investor looking for different strategies other than long term buy and hold.

Martel: Don't waste your time. The guy is full of you know what.

Glenn Purdy: The best US course we've taken so far. He knows the US and we don't need to take any other US courses after attending this one. 

We went from Glenns 3 day course down to Florida with their teams who were very professional and most importantly they had access to deals that we could not find on MLS or through other Florida Realtors.

As far as this "ripoff report" goes - we understand that MMG hired Glenn to teach MMG's 3 day seminar, however MMG did not fulfil on any promises and that's why Glenn left that organization. He then worked with Canadian Advantage/Alliance which also went sour due to a bad partnership. He has since partnered with Paul Hecht (Everyday Real Estate Millioanaires) which is the event we attended. Paul and Glenn are the owners of CanInvest. Paul has a great reputation in the industry and together they delivered on everything they said we would get.

In summary - we've been through many courses. Glenn Purdy has made some mistakes in who he has worked with. However it now looks like he's on the right track. We are very satisfied and have found the right people to invest with in the US (ie.Glenn Purdy and Paul Hecht). These 2 guys are highly recommended and we are very satisfied.

Glenn Purdy Real Estate Scam ?

AUTHOR: Bill - (Canada)

After reading this we were somewhat concerned.

We took the 3 day US weekend training in Calgary where Glenn Purdy was the instructor. We paid $1K and the information in the weekend training was very good. If you want to go to the US with their team its $15K, which we did. 

In talking with other attendees prior to going, we learned that other companies charge up to $100K for training and it's not as good. Others take you to the US and keep you in a classroom most of the time telling you that you need their $25K - $35K mentoring program. So - we were prepared ahead of time.

Our US trip to Florida had no classroom time, no upsells and we looked at real estate the entire time from private wholesalers, MLS, preconstruction and pocket deals. We purchased several properties with no issues.

After reading this, we dug deeper and found out that Glenn Purdy spend over 182 days in the US a few years ago. Therefore, he was banned for a few years from going back. He is able to go back now at any time. Good food for thought for Canadians contemplating staying longer than 182 days.

We also spoke with several other students who had attended Glenns past trainings and gone on trips to the US. We did hear that some of Glenns past associations and business partners (Ie. MMG, Chris, and a previous Florida realtor) were not to be trusted. Apparently a few of these earlier trips were disorganized. We found out that these people and companies are no longer part of Glenns current team - might be the reason for the "re-branding." His current team that we were involved with were John, Paul, Rocco, William and Damian. They were all open, honest, forthcoming and gave us direct access to the deals with no high pressure sales tactics either.

So, I can see where this report could have come from. I can tell you that the other people on our US trip to Florida were all very satisfied and bought several properties too. Our experience with Glenn and his current team was excellent. We all felt that it was high value and well worth the money.

So, as long as the other companies mentioned and previous people are not involved - we would recommend Glenn Purdy and his current team (John, Paul, Rocco, William and Damiem). Do your own research thanks. Calgary, AB.
