So at some point I will need to assemble my own network of real estate agents, brokers, title companies, rehabers etc.
My true recommendation to you or anyone getting started in any type of RE, is to do these things and you can be successful. (Mentors are not readily avail. at least the kind who have lots of experience doing so, and who are willing to train you for a fee.) So here are my basic steps to success: (hey- it's free advice- so if you don't like it, at least it cost you nothing!) [By the way- if anyone does have mentoring referrals, by all means, go ahead and post them!] Hope this helps someone who reads it! (It's a good reminder for myself if nothing else!)
I would be willing to answer questions and give advice as needed. I am a fellow investor, real estate broker, my wife is a real estate attorney and owns a mortgage company. We have learned a lot about investing just thru trial and error and our own education and training. We are willing to help out and maybe we can help you find houses that are good deals and lead you thru the process of buying a rehab or rental or whatever. Call or email if you have questions.

I don't think I want hand-holding through this stage, as Ive tended to learn everything on my own in the past. The main thing was being able to talk to others who have bought at least one property and that is what nubys is all about - networking, right ?! This as opposed to listening to audio cd's or an infomercial.I met several good people at my first time to the nubys group. I cant promise I will be at every meeting, but ive found a good source of folks I can ask questions along the way. I hope we can get them to sign on here because its often hard to get everyones information they have to offer in a meeting. By the way, your husband spoke pretty highly of you! Randal
