It's funny, the same books are always highlighted in presentations, seminars and conversations with real estate investors.So, I decided to put together a list of books that helped me and help educate people that are real estate professionals, investors or who have expressed an interest in Real Estate. … (0 comments)

I always found that I had success with charging a non-refundable,   application fee. People are less likely to mislead you when they have skin (money) in the game.

When I was growing up and about to graduate, I wondered what path to take as I entered the life of leaving mom and dads house and making it on my own. It was always a dream of mine, like everyone to become wealthy and be my own boss. So in my last year in high school, I got into a work for credit program that allowed me to get out of school early and go to work for school credit. I was given a job painting the inside of vacant properties at an apartment complex for a general contracting company. … (2 comments)
