Meet the Author

Peter Conti and Peter Harris are known as the World’s #1 Greatest Commercial Real Estate Mentors. They partnered years ago by combining their existing Mentoring practices. They have both started from modest beginnings, Peter Conti was an auto mechanic, and Peter Harris was an introverted engineer. The portfolio of properties they have purchased nationwide with their Commercial Mentoring Program students continues to grow at an accelerated rate.
Peter Conti is the CEO of MentorFinancialGroup.com and lives on the Chesapeake Bay with his wife and kids in Annapolis, Maryland.
Peter Harris has purchased and put together commercial and residential real estate deals across the country for years. He has taught, mentored, and instructed many of the most successful investors across the nation. Harris and Donald Trump are coauthors of Three Master Secrets of Real Estate Success. He also sits on the board of advisors on several private and national real estate investment and development companies.
Many years ago, Peter Harris received the gift of a great mentor in his career and in his every day life, who guided and encouraged him to always get out of his comfort zone and play a bigger game. Mentoring one-on-one or to hundreds at a time around the nation is Peter’s way of giving back and imparting the message of hope and faith in the dynamic and rewarding world of real estate. Even though Peter’s first career was a physicist, holding several U.S. patents on outer space simulation, the school of hard knocks was where he got his real education in the business world.

    Good Information, but too much of an Infomercial

    I liked the information in this book. Very useful. However, the constant reference to the authors' Mentorship program and their sucessful Mentor students is a bit much.<BR/><BR/>If you're considering their mentorship program, due your due dilligence and check out websites like http://www.realestatecoursereviews.com or http://www.ripoffreport.com/

    Great Book!

    If you are thinking about investing in commercial real estate than this book is an absolute must have for your library. The information presented in the book is easy to use and extremely practical. I refer to it often! The information provided has allowed me to purchase the first of what I hope will be many large and very profitable investment properties.

    A reviewer

    This book is laid out in a clear and concise manner giving the reader the information they would need to build a successful commercial real estate career even without any previous knowledge or experience. One of the things I especially like is that the authors don't sugar coat everything as many other real estate books do. They explain the positives and negatives of the various careers in commercial real estate. I have recommended this to friends that have been doing this for many years but were unaware of things in this book that I mentioned. It will save one friend his large nest egg. If you are interested in investing in commercial real estate then this needs to be in your library as a reference you will frequently refer to.
