Victoria Suen is an architect and real estate investor, having started by buying her first property at the age of 19. She took a break from real estate investing to pursue a career in architecture but after graduation, she bought her second investment property in Kitchener/Waterloo to bring together her passions of design, real estate, and business.

Since then, she’s acquired 3 properties in 2021 and  currently owns 8 properties – 13 doors. Looking to the future, Victoria is opening her own architecture studio, building her own prefabricated tiny house for distribution and would like to help more investors with designing their multi-unit conversions, building accessory dwelling units such as laneway suites, garden suites, and tiny houses and diving into real estate development.

In this podcast we discussed:
