I am so excited! I'm only about 1/2 way through "Profit From Real Estate Now," and I'm bursting with enthusiasm! You see, I am a realtor (AmarilloHome.net) with one of the worlds top real estate companies and a part time customer service agent with one of the nation's top utility companies. Every day, all I hear from landlords, realtors, mortgage/foreclousure offices, people that have been evicted, people that have been foreclosed on, etc. is doom and gloom! I'm sure it's God in me, too, but where all others can see is doom and gloom...I see enormous opportunity to help others and help myself and my family.
Amarillo, Texas is a small city of about 200,000 people that is pretty much isolated from the rest of the country's woes. We have the best economy in Texas, and the third strongest real estate market in the country, but there are still over 200 foreclosures, pre-foreclousures or bank owned properties available for purchase here, and many have been built in the last 10 years during a boom here.
Other realtors who have been in the business for decades keep telling me, "Don't buy anything (information, sytems, whatever). They don't work. Do things proven, old fashioned way," and the like. The negative talk really gets to me some time, but then...I just pick up one of Dean's books, and the light penetrates the doom and gloom.
So, everybody, what is your enthusiasm level?
