I have been known to be somewhat perfectionistic... in fact, my mother has a nickname for me Miss Perfectionista. What I've come to realize in recent years is that it's a handicap!

On walkabout through Centretown Ottawa, I passed by a triplex offered for sale by its charming owner. She'd recently toured me through her units and is a fine example of how to successfully own Ottawa investment properties! We'd connected as I also own a century-old triplex that boasts both posit...
