You have the right attitude. However, I feel that if satisfaction is not achieved then taking it to a public forum like this has more of an overall effect. You paid the money-- and as I pointed out to them – I consider this a performance contract and they had better perform.
As I said in my earlier message- They don’t teach you anything that the book hasn’t already taught you and then in phase two they leave you fending for yourself with a resource line that I can hardly say is worth it. Let me give you an example. I submitted a cash flow/expenses statement on a multi-family apartment complex. I had already run the numbers and came to the conclusion that the owner was asking about $115,000.00 over what this would cash flow at to break even. Even if I raised the rents it was too far out of line. I called the resource line, and low and behold they agreed with me, but were so busy trying to get me off the line they offered no alternative suggestions. I don’t want to learn from people that can’t give me any more insight than I already have. When I complained I got an apology- and apologies don’t buy real estate. Any way you keep at them and if they hic-up jump on them.
