Neither, Milin or Whitney have never made any money in REAL ESTATE. They are very good sales people but they have not done what they say. They lead you to believe that they have made millions in real estate. The truth is they made it in selling you books & tapes. I got this info from someone who knows both of them personally.
The same for Thurston he made alot of money by accident when he was sent to Alaska with IBM. He happened to buy some apts about the time the alaska pipeline was being built. That drove all the prices up. Not being that smart he also rode them down after the pipeline was finished.
My experience over 20 yrs has been that most (not all)of the “GURU’S” are great salesman just not in real estate. Search for local, usually low profile investors
that have really made alot of money in real estate.
My experience is the ones who do, do and don’t tell you how great they are.
