Hello DG family. This is my first time posting my journal. My name is Don and my wife of 20yrs is Dia, We have been looking at becoming Real Estate investors for 10yrs, and only became active in the business 5yrs ago. At that time the market was heading for its fall. We did manage to land four birddog deal until the investors and mortgage broker, up and bailed out leaving us to fall flat on our faces. That was in 2007 when we became homeless, but we didn't jump ship, in some way the good Lord kept us involved in Real Estate by going to work as a handy man at the motel we stayed at, then found a job as a general labor for some Real estate investors, then found a home to rent out through the investors for an elderly lady. She was moving in to her second home and both of them needed alot of work. So we did the work in exchange for rent,(which we had a contract for), that was in 2008-2009. During that time I rented Dean's book from the library and got down to business reinventing myself. I also set here on the computer study what everyone had to say, posting ads and making phone calls, watching videos and bouncing ideal off my wife. We now have a list of buyers and are close to landing our first deal in four years. So this thanks goes out to our Lord and to the DG family and my loving wife who has been more than patient with me.
Keep your eye on the prize and you will thrive!
