Today I finally took action. I read Dean's books about 2 months. About a month ago I joined the Success Academy which is truly a great investment. The academy, along with everyone on this forum, gives so much encouragement on being successful in real estate.
Today I finally contacted some real estate agents in my area using the techniques in PFRERN and got replies within an hour or so. I am going to wait about a week to see who else replies so I can make the best choice. I also joined my local REI group and the first meeting is next week. I am excited and hope to find some other investors that I will be able to work with.
I am excited and glad I have finally got the ball rolling with this and hope to make 20-30 deals within the next 12-18 months. Thank you all for your support and stay tuned!
