About Me: 

in 2008 I was truly motivated to change my life after reading Dean Graziosi's book " Be A Real Estate Millionaire". I had never done anything in real estate when I started so I dove into this totally inexperienced and unfamiliar with real estate investing. At that time in my life I was losing everything due to financial instability. Something needed to change and it needed to change FAST!

Thanks to Dean and his support and training I am currently wholesaling real estate around the Country. My life has finally become " MY LIFE" and I am no longer in bondage to my financial situation.

I do all of my real estate wholesaling right from home and never have to sacrifice being a mother of 7 and a wife. I am currently financially free and enjoying life!

My mission is to help others do the same Smiling

Interests: 
My Interests are family first and of course Real Estate.

Your story

dianasweet's picture

Thank you for sharing your story in your profile of starting on a new path after being inspired by reading one of Dean's books and how you went on to achieve your goal of financial freedom. I am very happy for you and your family that you are now enjoying life and being there for your kids. I applaud you and take inspiration from you.

I am a grandmother who finds herself in a similar situation to when you took up the DG path to success (I have financial challenges and am also very new to real estate, as you were in the beginning of your investment career). I feel hope for my own success in reading what you have done.

I wish you continued success! Let me know if you're now a buyer yourself. I'm building my buyers list. Smiling

Thank You!

Admiration for Carol

TheRealEstateRealm's picture

Hi Carol,

I had not seen you on the DG website. I have read a few of Dean's books, and he speaks so highly of you.

I admire your situation. I am disabled, and I work with disabled children. It takes a special kind of heart to overcome the many challenges that I know you have faced and probably will face as long as you have a disabled child.

When I grow up, I want to be as successful as possible, and I want you know that you represent a very positive and strong role model for me.

I have yet to do a deal, but I know that it is time. That means that I have read enough information, and it is now time for me to take action.

I went to your website, it has a WEALTH of information and I want to say Thank You for making it available for anyone who needs assistance.

God Bless you and your family. No, those are not just words that fall off my lips because it sounds good. I am a true believer and I try to walk the walk as a believer as well.

Have a great weekend.

Contract

Hello Carol,
My name is Bernadette and I have been trying to get my first deal for some time now. I thought that I finally understood what I was doing and then not. I asked my realtor to put on offer on a property, but then I forgot to have the realtor write the name of the company followed by and/or assign. My questions is: does and/or assign go on the offer letter or when? I am in Oregon and Washington.
Thanks

Busted and almost broke

mgntexas's picture

I've sort of been keeping up with your progress, I've liked your story from the beginning, in a way I've become busted and almost broke trying to make more deals on assignments but without any success, My first deal was a back to back deal and I made a hugh pay day. Since then I've fallen on my face and need help getting back up. I'm not a quitter and have learned something about using the assignment of contracts, back to back closings, payment assignments contract etc. etc. I've been doing this for 2.5 yrs now and feel like a totle failure, I know how to find my buyers and my sellers. I have other investors call me for properties that I have for sale and they do not know what they are doing, causing me to loose deals. I have not, to this day, done a complete assignment deal, that I can talk about. One deal in 2.5 yrs. that's crazy isn't it. I want to do 3 and 4 deals a month. I'm going to be 68 in Dec. If you can shine some light on my know how, I'm sure it will help.
Regards
Mike

A Question

Hello Carol,

I was wondering if you know someone by the name of Benedict in the DG Family; I heard that he started REI at around 19 and has been rather successful at it ever since. If you happen to know him, please give me his username, so that I may contact him of future endeavors in this forum. Thank you.

classification for irs

Carol,

My sister and I are starting to wholesale in NJ. We have established our LLC, secured our domain name and are now applying for a Fed ID #. Do you have any idea if I should choose:
1. rent/lease to others
2. manage real estate for others
3. sell real estate for others
4. Use capital to build
5. other - explain

I know you wholesale and thought you may have a suggestion.
Thank you so much.
