I like Robert Allen. I took his 3-day RE course 25 years ago. I think his books are still of value.
The thing is that I haven’t heard about him teaching anything different than he did twenty-five years ago; he occasionally adds new window dressing. In the interim, web sites such as CREonline.com have made many generalized real estate courses, including Robert Allen’s, superfluous. The good courses are specialized, and there aren?t too many of those.
It might be worth $90 if Robert Allen actually shows up to lecture personally. I?m certain that you will be given many chances to sign up for additional services, both before and for an extended period after the club meeting.
From the URL, I don?t understand the differences between a regularly meeting local CREI group and a Real Estate Navigators club meeting. Are the REN meetings monthly?
I have no problem paying for advice, but I?d expect more than a telemarketer who?s read the same books that I have. I want to speak with people who are smarter than me and more insightful, or who have more experience in an area than I do; preferably to one person who is smarter and more insightful and who has more experience. I?d be cautious about signing up for the extended tour.
