I posted this in the "Start Here FAQs" things but thinking further figured I ought to post other places. Here's my original post:
I remember reading in the book "Be a Real Estate Millionaire" that one can collaborate as a middleman between a buyer and the seller and collect a previously agreed upon fee. The book went on to mention a success story on page 208 of some college student who was one of Dean's students going on to make $11,000 off of his first deal like this. Sounds good, but could you end up being charged with "Acting as a real estate broker without a license" for a deal like this?
"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.
We do not act rightly because we have virtue or
excellence, but we rather have those because we have
acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."
- Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC)
