My area of expertise has always been in the Customer Service Department of a large, medium, or small Company. The first fifteen years out of high school, I was a nurse for many retirement/nursing homes. Married and Divored once.
I live in the Dallas area and just finished a REI course (via Carleton Sheets). I have just been laid off from my job(collections clerk) and now have the available time that I needed to develope “hands-on” experience in my choosen career, Real Estate Investment. I’m nearly in financial dept, again (this will become a reality after the holidays, again)and I really want to play my hand at this opportunity.
I have read many articles, clippings, and message boards on the subject of REI, and they all bring a positive force to the possibilities of endless education and wealth. I’m okay with that. But, I think that I need a lesson on the flip side of the coin. I have two (2) questions.
In the world of real estate investments, what are the areas of which would be considered unlawful, and/or unethical? In other words, what can I “NOT” do in my choosen career in order to be a happy as well as successful REI entrepreneur?
Where is the line between me… the investor, and the real estate agent.
Please everyone, no Abbreviation’s other than “REI” for this beginner! I will be paying close attention, and hanging on every word that you all write. I will be hard copying all inquiries for (“Beginner”) references.
Finally, if I need a successful investor (mentor), could I ask to work with someone likeable and trustworthy in my area (Dallas) for the next 21 days?
I am a professional when it comes to working with people. I’m honest in my approach to fulfill this dream. My father use to tell us (sister’s & brother’s & myself), “Never be afraid to make your way up front, and never be afraid to ask for help if help will get you started, or if you need help along the way”.
I am so glad to have found you guys and this site!
Merry Christmas and God Bless All of You, and Yours.
