ASK MIKE MONDAYS - Mike….I am a fairly new real estate operator….what should I do first?
Well….you need to find deals and find money! Building relationships with brokers, equity investors, contract attorneys, lenders, physical engineers, & SEC attorney should be your first course of action. Some folks may use LOOPNET to find their first deal and that is OK, but most SERIOUS BUYERS contact listing agents in the market. Don’t be a jerk…this is a small business and word will get around. Sound advice in any business. Michael Becker has purchased over 10,000 apartment units between Dallas and Austin Texas. He is a former commercial banker and has a unique perspective of being of a former ‘loaner- of money’ and is now a large “owner- of commercial real estate.”
