Jimish, you have already developed your ansewer.
see below:
"Since 2007 I have been in the real estate arena. I started out investing in fix & flips, and then acquiring rentals for long term investments.

Since I have a strong investment background and as my business grew, my friends and family starting asking me I can assist them in researching different markets for their new homes and what I can do to help them attract the best price to sell their home.

In being a realtor, it brings me endless joy and passion to assist both buyers/sellers with their homes. This can be a stressful process, but teaming up with an experienced professional like myself, can aid in making real estate transactions a smooth process.

My background also includes in earning a Bachelors of Science in Economics from the University of Illinois at Chicago, class of 2001.

I am a family man and my family is my life."

Share with that seller that you know exactly what they are looking for in trying to get as much for thier home as possible, while pricing it effectively. You do this constantly with the flips you are doing.
Plus, with the team you have built doing the flips, if any issues arise you are more equiped to resolve anything quickly to satisfy any buyers needs.

I agree. I would continue to collect rent as well. Both tenants were on month to month leases and knew that the mortgage wasn't being paid. I have heard of instances where the lien holder demanded the collected rent to be handed over but in these cases my clients have a true financial hardship. Unfortunately, the client who wasn't collecting rent will have to bring some money to close in order to have his lien holder forgive the deficiency. ... more

OH LOOK A SCAM! How many have gotten this???

Dear Pattis,

I am interested in establishing and operating a very viable business as a means of investment abroad. I do not know too well on how this is done in your country, so I will need you to help me in this regard.

My preference is any good profit yielding business and I would appreciate any viable ideas you could come up with. I will also need you to help me look for properties like homes and lands for sale as I am proposing to invest the sum of Fifty Million United States Dollars ($50,000,000 USD) for this. I do not know if you can and will be of help to me.

For a brief on my personality; my name is John Bredenkamp, a Zimbabwean based in U.K. I was into private Shipping Business. I am 69 years of age, married with a wife and 4 lovely kids. I dropped my Shipping business because it was not producing profitable income. I have had so much problems with the British Authority just because am a foreigner I believe.

My need for this business proposition and to acquire these properties is very urgent as I am planning to move out of this country with my family down to your country. I want you to also help in finding a good home where my family and I will live in (Mini Estate)

Please i expect your prompt reply so that we can proceed swiftly. I will need your phone and fax numbers for easier communication with you if i am unable to access my emails.

Best Regards,
John Bredenkamp
Thank you.

HI Reallyknew-

I was with another major broker in the Chicago area for over 12 years before joining Baird & Warner....about 2 1/2 years ago.

The reason I joined Baird & Warner was their reputation, internet presence, market presence, training, up-to-date technology and the overall feel of their offices. I believe it was a great business decision for me. I think I am able to offer my sellers/buyers great services when working with me.

I think you should interview several brokerages and make sure they fit with what you are looking for. Ask about training, buyer/seller services, internet marketing, their local market presence, etc.. Talk to agents that work in those offices, as well.

Good Luck!
