Show Notes

A realtor’s experience level and savviness don’t necessarily correlate. In today’s episode, Dan and Mike talk about some of the experiences that they have had with realtors. Mike talks about a condo that he sold to good realtors, Mike shares his experience with a bad agent who messed up the inspection, and both our hosts discuss some of the ways agents try to get price reductions or get out of deals. They also talk about the benefits of working with investors and the value of a good reputation.

Tuning in you’ll hear about the deals that they are currently working on, the great month that they had in February and why they believe the market is so good right now. This episode is full of tips for finding a good realtor and helpful advice for investors. You’ll also hear some of the scams our hosts have encountered in the past, the challenges of a complicated lead that they are currently dealing with, and some of the strangest things they’ve encountered in their property dealings from kidnappings to homemade sex toys. Tune in for all this and more!
