We have many foreclosures here in San Bernardino County, Southern California and I need to network with like minded investors whom I can partner with. I have been busy contacting real estate agents in my area and they are saying that short sales and REO's are the most popular here, but I'm trying to find a loophole so that I can assign these. I have read Dean's books and they have really good insight and strategies that I would like to implement them, but I wonder if they work here in Southern California. I am hoping to find a Dean Graziosi student here in my area

Hi, from Mike!

Hi Arnold looking for help

Hi congratulation on your sucess I can see is working out very good for you that great keep it going.
I'm a new student of Dean academy I'm interested in assignment deals for the time being because of the fast cash that generate, my question is if you are working with a Real estate agent what will be the Percentage pay to that agent 3% 4% etc and the mount pay to the agent is it base on the total amount sold of the property or the amount that I made on the deal?
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my email.

Hi Bernie,
Sorry about this being so late to get to you, but the answer to your question is yes the agent does receive 6% on the total purchase price. that would be 3% on the buying side and 3% on the selling side. I specialize on short sales which is different because usually the agent negotiating with the bank takes part of their commission and the agent sometimes gets 2%, BUT to turn things around we as cash buyers we negotiate with the bank and we can now give the agent his full commission


Hi Arnold,

As you mentioned you are a short sale specialist, and I've visited your site.
Would you do deals in Northern Cal? (bay area)

I'm a newbie and would really like to have someone can help me and mentor me though the deals. I've been tracking REOs and also found more and more short sales on the market now these days.

What are you looking for "short sales"?
any specific detail info you need?


lets work on short sales!
