Hello there REI's
I'm Tristan Cook and I'm fairly new to the real estate world.
I'm a pretty young guy, 21, and have grown up in the small town of Sweetwater,Tennessee a place rich with heritage and hometown love. Over the years I've watched our community grow, just even here recently through grants. I believe that economic wheel is starting to turn in the right direction. The growth and future of this small town has tremendous opportunities and I want to be a helping hand to change.
I see this through real estate and since my first land purchase proposal at 17...ha I've heard about naive diving head in into something you don't know, well there I was...And even though I didn't make a deal I learned a valuable lesson from an investor. From then on I knew someday REI would play a part in my life and along came Dean's show.
I've had the book for a little over a week now. I have alot of free time on my hands taking a semester off from school,seems like its been two or three now haha. I'm hands on and I love to learn but right now I have to much drive and energy to be sitting in a classroom. Who said there's only one avenue to prosperity? Since reading this book I've yet to finish it I'm about 3 chapters out and I've already began.
Just today when I was getting my haircut at the local barber he asks what I'm up to these days and I told him REI. Right off the bat, "well my aunt has a home for sale, matter of fact I'd like to get rid of mine." Right there two opportunities arose from.....a haircut!
My eyes have been opened to REI and I've already started negotiating my first two deals.
I gotta get on the move and sign up for some coaching because this is all happening so fast it's hard to believe.
