However long ago, I was trying to find a way to get my Texas Real Estate License and realized that I would never be able to afford the classes. Both in person and online classes were insanely out of my price range. I had a family to feed, bills to pay, and just could not take on several hundred dollars per class. Well, that was until a friend told me about Online Real Estate Training School! Now, I know that several people have a hard time learning online and online learning is not for everyone but TrainAgentsOnline.com has worked diligently to try and accommodate all the different learning types.

As you know, online learning gives you the freedom to study at your leisure. This means that you don't have to rearrange your entire lifestyle to get the

So you want to get into real estate and you've heard about this great thing they call "wholesaling". But what is wholesaling? Is it good? Is it legal? How hard is it, exactly? While some questions may be easier to ask than others, it is important to remember that each situation is different and I am no layer. Before we even get started, let's go over a few ground rules when it comes to wholesaling real estate.

  1. Get your license. Seem simple enough? Always have the correct paperwork  and knowledge to do what you do at the drop of a hat. It is always better to not need it and have it than to not have it and need it so be on the up and up!
  2. Buy and sale. Of course, we'll cover this more a bit later, but before we even get started let's just make

Real estate, much like fishing, requires a certain amount of knowledge, patience, and of course, the right bait. The truth is, if you cast your hook, sit in the same place at the same time day in and day out and you have yet to so much as get a nibble, you may have to start looking at your method. Just because you have done something the same way for a long time does not mean you must continue to do it. There is nothing wrong with changing things up and taking a chance on something new. After all, teach a man to fish...well, I'm sure you know the rest.

THE TOOLS IN A REALTORS BOX

The sad fact is, many real estate agents are guilty of making a lot of the same mistakes. Each one may be using the same listings, have the same clientele, and be using the

Now, before you go selling the shack before the mansion (real estate humor), you are going to need a few pointers on how to find the perfect broker - not only to represent you but to guide your career.

Out Of Difficulties Grow Miracles

Every Realtor has found themselves in that moment... The Moment where they are trying to figure out if all the work, all the time and that emotional roller coaster is truly worth it. Well, I am here to tell you that is.

"Believe it or not you will bounce back and move on with your life if you want. If not depression will set in and that will be your own doing, not the difficulty, not the disease and certainly the challenge would deny you your dream. You can choose to spend time in the situation wallowing in self-pity or make the most out of it. Each of us can become a magician and create miracles in the life!" -- Quotes Gram

That moment... that moment that every home buyer or seller dreads... Choosing a Real Estate Agent! This is such an important decision. The right realtor can take the buying or selling process and make it painless; but the wrong realtor can mess it up for everyone. 

My advice? Interview Your Realtors!!

They work for you. You are hiring them for their skill, knowledge and trust-ability. This is such a personal and important decision. Do not just use someone because a friend said to. Interview them. Every Realtor Does NOT Fit All. 

First, personalities and goals must match. Second, you need to trust them. And, finally, time as a realtor does not matter - it's knowledge. Some of the best realtors I have ever worked with were newly licensed but had
