Editorial Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle.
This is the success story of an ex-dot-com employee who got tired of working long hours at a great job for 10 years and watching his fellow workers lose their jobs. He accidentally discovered real estate's market-value appreciation, leverage, tax savings, cash flow, reliability and freedom from a 9-to-5 workday. In the process, he became a multimillionaire, and he shows readers how they can have the same result.”

    All the info you need for less than $20

    All the info you need without spending thousands of $$ on bootcamp. This book has given me the insight and confidence to embark on the road to relatively quick wealth as a real estate investor. I highly recommend it.
