After deciding that I wanted to invest in real estate, I purchased my first duplex. I then was told by my mentor, that if I was a Realtor, that he would give me this listing and I would make $4500. Well that made a light bulb go off and 3 weeks later I passed by test for Realtor. I've been a realtor for 10 years and have assisted numerous friends, co workers and their families purchase and sell homes. My true passion is investing and will continue to do this for years. I'm proud to say that I was in the Marines for 8 years and retired from the reserves. I've been a police lieutenant for 7 years and in the department for close to 28 years and love that career as much as real estate. My true pride and joy are my children and both will be following in my footsteps in real estate investing. When I am not doing one of these two, you can find me hiking in Denali National Park.
