Clair is right about Al Lawry. His first book was excellant. Some of his later ones were not not so hot.
I heard him give a pitch for his weekend seminar on real estate investing and felt that he made it seems easier than it is. He was, in my judgment, dipping into lies about real estate investing to try to pull in the people to take the course. I do not know how good the course is. I know that it cost what seemed to me to be a high cost.
Al was a legitimate real estate investor here in Oakland for many years. Currently there are no properties owned in the name Lawry in this county, Alameda. I remember about 15 years ago that he and his wife had to foreclose on an apartment house here in Oakland that they had sold and carried back a loan on. At that time they did not seem to own any properties in Alameda County in their own names.
Al started out working with William Nickerson doing seminars and then they separated company. He was later affiliated with Tony Hoffman for a while which, by my lights, is a distinct negative.
