thanks for stopping by my journal- it gives me great satisfaction if anyone can learn something from my scribbles and apply it to their own strategy to succeed in rei.
I am very impressed with your bio write-up! Sounds like you already know quite a bit about real estate-now you can apply some of DG's strategies and build up from there!

Wishing you success on your rei journey,

Can I call you Jennifer?

I joined the family the last week in August of last year. I completed reading three of Dean's books about a month afterwards. I assembled my real estate team as I completed the last of the three books. My brokers backed out when I was ready to make offers even though they both knew (clearly) what my intentions were. I learned to have 'back-up' people in place after that. I'm currently working part-time as I build my real estate business. I would love to stay in touch with you if you are okay with this.
Your NC DG Family,
