Lena Guirguis is an Author, Public Speaker and, a Business Advisor. She is a managing partner at New Venture Solutions, a business advisory firm, and a VP at NV Property Management, a boutique-style property management firm offering hands-off, full-service property management. Lena also founded Stilettos & Hammers, an all-women’s investment network focused on educating women and families on how to plan for retirement, manage their cash flow and assist them in purchasing their own investment properties.
Lena began her real estate journey in early 2003 at the age of 21 with the purchase of a mismanaged triplex in Eastern Ontario to buy, fix and hold. By the age of 25, she had acquired a multi-million dollar portfolio and was running one of Ottawa’s premier property management firms. While buy, fix and hold of multi-family properties has always been Lena’s preferred investing strategy, she has amassed multiple Rent-to-Own properties over the last decade. She has also successfully completed several fix-and-flips and land severances.
Through her experience with real estate investing and property management, Lena finds under-performing properties with high potential and transforms them into quality rentals while creating win-win situations for all involved by providing her investors and clients secure and hassle free returns, and providing her tenants with safe, quality units to call home.
She has also developed a solid management system that allows both herself and her
clients to remotely oversee the successful management of their investment property regardless of its location.
A lifelong athlete and certified personal trainer and nutritional coach, she also invests several hours of her week helping others reach their personal health and wellness goals. Lena firmly believes that successful business goals are a direct result of the successful attainment of one’s personal goals.
