I was a real estate investor for 10 years and a Realtor for four years. Why did I get into real estate? My main motivation was to help real estate investors find great real estate deals and close them. The most exciting part of any real estate transaction to me is putting together the art of the real estate deal. So, this is still my main motivation when it comes to working with real estate investors. The number #1 need for real estate investors from a Realtor is on how to determine a good deal. Then, the real estate investor needs assistance in structuring and closing the deal. The money is made at the close of escrow. That is what I learned from 10 years of investing. I have always said "Deals do not come to you. Great Realtors create deals."
