Ron, I just wanted to tell you on a public forum how much I have appreciated your well though out and generally positive comments on real estate investing. You are well informed and appear to really want to help others. I have heeded your advise on many occassions. I also wanted to thank you for your recent purchase of a program I sold on ebay. You are a person who realizes that an education in real estate never really stops.

You got the first part right, but the second part wrong. Jerks are the ones who make unsubstantiated comments.

I dont understand what John Reed has to do with the Carleton Sheets mentoring service.

I never recommend to anyone just starting out in REI to use a mentoring service. I just think they are much to costly.

What I would recommend is to go over your course several times if you need to. And dont jump into REI right away. Maybe after you finish the Sheets course explore other authors with different points of view.

The more knowledge you have the better off you will be when its time to structure your first deal.

Best of luck,

What makes you say that Jack Reed is a “jerk?” Have you met him? Have you read any of his materials? What backs up your characterization?
