I posted in my member journal that I had been contacted by a RE Attorney/Investor from an ad I placed on Craig's List last week. I just scheduled an appointment to meet with the attorney this Thursday!! But I need help with something before that meeting.
First, I was expecting to meet with the attorney at their office, but he asked if I could meet with him at a restaurant. I really don't mind meeting at a restaurant, but I was hoping to check out his office and surrounding area to help me "size" him up! (LOL) But, the main question I have is: Who would be responsible to pick up the bill? Since I wanted the meeting I feel that I should pay, but it was he that suggested meeting at the restaurant instead of his office. Please give me some advice on what the protocol is in this kind of situation.
Second, the attorney is also an investor. Should I also talk to him about possible investment opportunities regarding the possibility of doing some business together in the future or should I keep the interview strictly to what he can offer me as a RE attorney on my team?
What specific questions should I ask regarding his attorney services? If I should talk to him about his investment business I guess I should just go with the questions that I would ask of any other possible investment buyer to see if I could also add him to my buyer's list.
Please send me some responses quickly on this post as I want to be prepared well in advance of my meeting on Thursday.
Always striving to move forward toward better times!
