Being a real estate agent and being a real estate investor are two completely different things. Just because this guy has sold a lot of houses for other people, doesn’t mean he’ll be of any value to you in your pursuit of investments.
The number one question (in my opinion) is: “Do you invest in real estate yourself?”
If not, then his years in business mean nothing, he won’t be any more useful in procuring investments than someone fresh out of agent school. Because, afterall, any agent can write an offer.
