I recall reading a letter from my father written in August of 1945 to his parents on the news that the Second World War was over. He said that the feeling among the men was not one of celebration or joy, but weary relief. My Dad was in the Signal Corps on Leyti Island in the Pacific Theater. He, like many Americans, bowed his head in thanks when the Japanese officially surrendered on the USS Missouri. On the Missouri that day of the surrender was a young marine who would move back to the USA and live in Yonkers, NY, just a few miles from where my father and mother raised my brothers and myself. Our families would be a few zip codes apart. My Dad never met this Marine. I met him just shy of a year ago. Once a Marine, always a Marine, and this Marine, now this dignified octogenarian was i...

When I first started as a real estate investor, I thought I should buy as many properties as I possible can. A property allows you to make money with out any limit, but there are only two methods that are commonly used. Method 1) Buy and flip:  Find a TLC / Handyman Special / or a Total Rehab property then buy It very low and sell it higher including cost of repair and labor. And in this market if you search hard enough you can buy a short sale with little or no work needed. Method 2) Buy and hold: When you purchase a property hold it to generate income and appreciate in value over time. Real estate demand continues to grow as population continues to grow and people are willing to pay for place to live. The two common problems investor doesn’t invest into Real estate.

How do you prepare you self when meeting your prospect. Are you unprepared what to say , what to ask ?  If you just ask " tell me a little bit about you house", how unprepared does that make you look? Totally Unprepared.  Being prepared is going through web and printing out information, listening, and taking notices so you can ask about what you don't understand. And don't ask DUMP questions, Let's talk about how you can find out information about your prospect before meeting them "Being Prepared" 1. The Internet. Don't just look up their prospect. Enter their name on Google or other search engines like dogpile.com and see what pops up. There may be an article or other important information. By the way, if you look up the name of the person you're meeting with and you find nothing that ...

Want some pain? Look up your own name. Where are you? What's your Internet position? Suppose they are looking you up. What will they find? If it's nothing, that's a report card on you. And it's not just Internet preparation. It's other research like finding mutual friends, calling a few vendors, maybe a few customers. There's one more thing in preparation: Be prepared with an objective or two about what you want to accomplish in the meeting. Proper preparation takes time, but I assure you it's impressive to the prospect. He or she knows that you have prepared, and is silently impressed. It's an advantage that very few salespeople use. They make the fatal error of getting all their own stuff ready.
