Hello Anthony,

I want to apologize for not seing your message. I'm not in a habbit of checking my inbox in this website for I have not done any deals yet.

Anyway, my only advice to you is to get yourself a good Real Estate Agent. Tell him to make an offer to a foreclosure property that you think you can make some decent money. Make sure its should be 40% or higher below the FMV. You don't want to do it all by yourself because just like me, we're both newbeas and we cannot afford to make mistakes. Tell your agent how much to offer and he will take care all the paper works. Hope this will help. Please don't hesitate to email me at

Are you in Maryland?


Hey Anthony

That's good advise, go back to dean's book on page 114 and use the Matt's advise for finding and agent. Send this out to all and any realtors in your area to see if you find one from the very start that will be willing to work with you. Take control right from the beginning and you will make it. Stick closely to Dean's book and read all his instruction carefully.

Catching your attention....

You made me smile. I showed to my wife those smileys you posted, lol.

Thanks for asking. Until now, I have not done a deal yet but i'm near to it. I know that this can't be done overnight. I've been so patient doing the business, keep on learning everyday, reading a lot about REI (including your post), have an open mind on every ideas that anybody shares.

Lately, somebody taught me how to do probates and I'm seriously considering it and wholesale/assigning them in the process. I don't have money to buy them for me to rehab or flip since my wife is the only one working now for I lost my job 3 years ago. I've been doing a lot of studying in REI just to help her. Thanks a lot for shedding more lights to it. Great to know someone like you is so generous to share your knowledge.

Maybe you would consider investing in Baltimore/Maryland (maybe you already have).

Thanks a lot for the reply. Best of luck always in your Business

I'm new to realestate and deans step by step plans sound good, but I'm having everyone around me telling me that I am going to have to have a lisence to do anything. Is that true?

You don't need a License to be in REI, although you will need it later on but it's not necessary to start up in REI with a License. An LLC will be great later when everything are already in the right order. Blessings to all. LA

I noticed you are from Maryland also...I like to keep up with DG family especially when they are in my back yard Smiling
Are you doing any deals? I find that Maryland is a hard state to get things started. I have branched out to Indiana things are really moving out here and it just seems to be easier.
It would be nice to hear how this program is working for you if you would like to share.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
