What was your first entrepreneur experience? It was between selling candy or tshirts when I was 8 or 9 years old.
You’re an entrepreneur, real estate agent, and investor. Of all your titles, which one is your favorite? Entrepreneur. That puts no limit on the things I can do.
Do people have to pay to use a realtor to find properties? In most cases the realtor is paid by the listing party so the buyer doesn’t have to actually pay to utilize the services of a realtor, yet they get all the perks. The benefit of having a realtor is that you get to have someone that knows the business representing your interests.
As a realtor, are you able to help other people that want to be investors instead of purchasing a house as a residence? That’s the beauty of being a realtor and an investor is that I attract people that want to invest in properties. Some of them aren’t that experienced in it and sometimes when I see them I see myself when I first started. I typically tell them you have to have tough skin to be in this business. It’s not for the meek. I encourage them to stay with it and make themselves knowlegeable as much as they can. A lot of people can lose their shirts trying to get into the trend of flipping houses. Be diligent and hire a good agent that’s going to work hard for you such as myself. It’s a great business to get into.
