Yes, I am a newbie

Real Estate Agent with Exclusive Estates a division of Scott Gordon Realty

I've just joined activerain and this is my first blog "ever", so I would be classified as a newbie.  But only for a while. 

I love working in Real Estate and have been so for the last six years.  When I first got started I was working with a few investors.  I would find them a great deal, of cause it had to be waterfront property and be in dire need of a rehab.  I truly loved finding a place and then reinventing it.  It's great when you can use your creative abilities.  I have a knack for redesigning spaces. 

It usually would take six month for the rehab and then I would list the property for sale.  It was a pleasure to represent a beautiful turnkey property and believe me they were outstanding.  One of my investors was a top designer.  He would turn a dump into a castle. 

Now in Palm Beach County flipping is not an option.  But I still work with investors, they just have reinvented the art.  Now I find property that have huge and I mean huge equity built in.  The property has to be in outstanding condition or near outstanding of cause on the water and rentable.
