I bought my first house with nothing down, and an adjustable interest rate of 13.5%, and thought how smart I was. Since then, I have been involved in the business of Real Estate for the past 30 years, in one way or another, first as an investor then as a builder and developer. And I have lost more money in these endeavors then most people ever make. Finally, my wife suggested I just try selling "it" since I obviously have a passion for it. Well, being the smart man I am, I took her advice, and as soon as I got my license, the real estate bubble burst and I have been struggling along like every other agent since then. I have sold real estate as a licensed agent and then broker for the past 6 years. Having read the book "The Millionaire Next Door, I believed them when they said that the only profession that showed any correlation between being a millionaire and a type of work was "Auctioneer" I decided that would be a good thing to learn. I am currently an owner and apprentice auctioneer, for Roebuck Auctions of Alabama. And as you might expect since the economy is so bad, we haven't done very well. As a matter of fact, we have consistently lost money every year. So, I guess my dream of being a millionaire, is still floating through the outer reaches of of dreamland. Oh, by the way I am also, Associate broker for Only Way Realty - Huntsville, I can hardly wait to see what happens next. I guess the bottom line is; if you are looking for an agent that is successful I am sure there are plenty out there, but I am not your man. However If you want someone that knows everything that can go wrong in real estate and can tell you what to look out for and what to avoid, Hey, I probably have done it a time or two at least. Now, I would not begin to tell you which one to trust to help you with the important decision of buying or selling a house. Live is a crap shoot, and everyone else is playing with loaded dice! So let the good times roll!!!
