Do You READ the Documents?

You know, the only time I discover there’s a problem is when I really need something to be right.  I often see borrowers, lenders, real estate agents, sellers and buyers sign and initial documents without reading the regular print, let alone the fine print.  Even when you’re using a standard state form it is imperative to read and understand the verbiage and notes that are written. In many cases you can take the exact same document, give it to three different attorneys and receive three different opinions on what it means.

Proceed With Caution: Crazy Talk Approaching

We are coming into the great season of real estate! It seems as though when March 1st hits, the light comes on and everything changes in the real estate market. In the particular market that I am in, Charlotte, NC, we have seen great sales and profit even through what used to be slow times – the winter. Read the rest…


The Lucrative But “Not So Sexy” Side of Real Estate Investing

We can thank HGTV for putting glamour back into the real estate market.  On most all the shows, you will see them boast of just how easy it is to make it big in real estate by flipping houses for big bucks.

Raising Funds

When people ask me what I do for a living I always respond with the following; “I help people build wealth through real estate.” Then, I just shut my mouth and I am silent. (not a simple task for me). Read the rest…


Never Turn It Off

I love everything about the business of real estate investing. The art of the deal is a continual challenge and watching others become successful is an incredible high for me.

Bottom-line, I am naturally networking 24/7.  The larger you grow your network the more successful you will be.  Networking brings you a plethora of opportunities and allows you to give back. Read the rest…
