I also have their book, it’s probably the best book I have ever read on property management, bar none. I would go to the seminar to learn what you can but be on guard when they give you the pitch to buy anything, especially on government grants. That area is a lot tougher than people make it out to be, it always is when dealing with the feds.
Just fyi, I watched a TV show about 2 years ago when Mike Milin claimed to have owned a Dallas office building and he flipped it for an outrageous profit. The TV’s investigate report team ran a chain of title on the property and Mike never showed up on title as having any interest in the office building. When the camera crew showed up at one of his seminars to confront him on this, he denied an interview but the cameras kept rolling, and he turned and ran down the hallway.
The camera crews chased him down the hall and he was throwing chairs behind him to try and stop them, when they jumped over the chairs and kept persuing him, he started yelling and crying as he was running down the hall. He finally escaped out of a side stage door and made his escape.
It was the funniest thing I had ever seen, I laughed for about two hours after that.
The investigative team fianlly ascertained he never owned nor sold the building as he had claimed. By the way, the jet plane you see on their infomercials? It’s a leased prop, just like McCorkle did.
