Hi everyone I am new to this site but very motivated and excited. I have a question / situation. We have a realtor friend of ours that knows about us wanting to become investors and wants to be our realtor. A few months ago we were talking with her and touched on the subject of making offers much lower than asking price and she seemed to want nothing to do with the idea. Today she contacted us wondering if there was anything she could do to help us with our investements. We told her that we were looking for duplexes and triplexes for about 80,000 within about an hours drive. Also that we were interested in hard money lenders and if she knew any that we might like to be in contact. Her reply makes me a little uneasy, "Hard money lenders charge double digit interest rates. Is that something you really need?". Also I'm afraid that if we decide to go with a different agent that she might not see it as a business transaction and take it a little more personal. Has anyone brought any friends in as part of their team and how did you preface the business relationship with a friend (if you did at all)? Thanks so much for the time.
