As time goes on, it looks like more and more people are interested in investing into the real estate world. The principal point of contention is that it usually takes lots of capital to buy revenue property that most people just don’t have. Alternatively, you may have the capital but don’t want to get into the nitty gritty of property management and tenants! If you are looking for an investment into real estate without all the grit, turn to page 16 to read the expert advice of Groupe Baronello.

Looking for employees or looking for the perfect position? Agora expertise makes temporary and permanent recruitment simple and efficient! Discover the Laval investment consulting firm that stands out from the others because of its unique human approach on page 14.
