This episode gives you an honest look at what it’s like to plan a life-altering move without the final confirmation from the authorities.
But the visa was just the first step; there was a house in Ottawa to deal with. Renting it out seemed like a logical step, but how? Do you DIY or engage a real estate agent? Gemma shares her journey from trying to handle it herself to eventually finding an agent and securing the perfect tenant.
