I see a lot of posts about John T. Reed on this board.
I’m sure all of us would like to find good and dependable information from knowledgable investors whose advice is grounded in PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.
If you visit www.johntreed.com/abouttheauthor.html you will find that he brags that, unlike other so-called “experts”, he posts all properties he has ever purchased since his very first one in 1969, and he lists them----
All ten of them.
That’s one every three years!
That’s experience?!? That makes him an “expert”???
Probably also includes his “owner occupieds” where he and his family have lived.
There are people who post ideas on this and the main CREOnline board that were “newbies” LAST YEAR that have closed more deals than that!
Some of you will close more than that, following advice you find on this site, from Sheets, from LeGrand (two genuine experts whom Reed slams), from the other REAL “experts” who share their knowledge with us on these message boards and whose courses JP has available to you, and from mentors in your local RE clubs, between now and Christmas!
We must all be careful who we listen to.
Reed is obviously an articulate antagonist, but I think you will find that whatever he has to say that IS worthwhile, the truely experienced investors who share their experience on this site will also be glad to tell you.
And it will taste like honey, not like vinegar!
We are all curious about what might be out there on the web that could add to what we have already learned, and that includes old-time investigative reporters like me.
I have searched and clicked and scanned my way thru hundreds, maybe thousands of real estate URL’s, and there are some interesting ones out there, for sure, but so far,—
all roads lead back to CREOnline.
Remember: it matters who you hang with!
