I am 1/3 through your book and already have learned more than entire books I have read on real estate. I have been with corcoran for 2+ years, have been moderately successful, and am looking to step up my game. I am constantly reading real estate and marketing books in addition to getting out there and hustling. Yours is already the best I’ve read.
I will be recommending it to every friend I have who asks me how they should start a career in real estate (of which there are many!)
