Real Estate Lesson by "The Maven"

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Cityside 212796

Two middle-age Texans on an airplane with an elderly Texan between them.  The first middle-age Texan bragged,  “My name is Roger. l owned 250,000 acres. I have 1000 head of cattle and they call my place the Jolly Rancher.”

The other middle-age Texan sneered, “Well my name is John. I own 350,000 acres and I have 5000 head of cattle and they call my place Big John’s.” 

They both looked at the elderly Texan who tells them, “My name is Irving and I own only 300 acres.” 

Roger asked, “Only 300 acres? What do you raise?” 

“Nothing.” Irvin replied. 

“Well then what do you call it?” John asked.

“Downtown Dallas”


Dear friends, real estate is as much about WHAT you own, as WHERE you own. 
Call on the Maven to help you discover what piece of property is worth your time and where.

Actually, he was wrong about what he raises as for sure he can just raise the rent
