Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I had taken several short sale seminars from other real estate gurus, but when I tried to actually do a short sale, I found I was missing information. I had heard about Dwan and Sharon from my local REIA group, so I decided to order their book. It helped me to find "the missing pieces of the puzzle." It is well-written and easy to understand. I have already submitted an offer, and I'm looking forward to making my first million!
I love this book and the fact that Dwan and Sharon were so kind to include forms that I could download and uses in my business. More bang for my buck. I have their Short Sale and Wholesale programs and closed my first real estate deal using their system. Simply put, IT WORKS!!! I've seen many other programs and none of them come close to explaining the 'how to's' in a step by step manner as they do. I highly recommend their books and programs.
Thanks to Dwan and Sharon for this comprehensive look at negotiating a short sale. The introduction was motivating; the practical information was empowering. This book is worth much more than what it's offered at. Thanks again!!!
This book is a great tool for understanding and developing a working base in the "Short Sale" industry. I have taken several classes with Dwan and was impressed with her level of knowledge and expertise. Dwan's teaching style is very open and down to earth. Once you read this book, you'll want to immediately maximize your investing opportunities with foreclosures. Her book gives you everything you need to get started. I highly recommend any book or course from Dwan, you'll learn from the Best!
Dwan has put together an unbeatable program for any one, regardless of your experience or financial status. I highly recommend not only Her book, but the long list of additional teaching aides and help available on the website.
This book is just full of good information. Wonderful book to own. A must-have for short-sale investors.
I bought this book and attended training in Tenn. It was the most comprehensive text on how to do a successfull short sale. I have now added another tool in my arsenal for making money in my real estate business.Sandy
