Greg - you might want to go see Dave Ramsey when he comes to Gwinnett Arena next month and presents the "Total Money Makeover." The link is in the web reference. He is a wise old real estate agent who has changed many thousands of lives with his financial training and advice. He'll sell out the arena.
And, right now, consider what my friend Kit Cummings always says: "change the way you look at things, so that the things you look at will CHANGE."
Assisting the new investor is a great opportunity but I appreciate your pointing out that you would need to be paid. Unlike most other occupations - if someone else's creativity doesn't result in a sale - we don't get paid for our professional time. If a person goes to a lawyer or an accountant or a doctor, he/she doesn't expect to get services for free.
Real estate agents have only 24 hours in each of their days. (Just like everyone else ...) Those hours spent at work - that is - the work of assisting folks to purchase homes - is how we earn money to pay our electric bills, our gas bills for the car and for home - and even for our family's meals.
Glad to chase your dreams, Clients - in a responsible manner - everyone with some skin in the game.
Have a happy day -

As real estate professionals, we tend to specialize in helping people buy and sell homes. I suggest you find an accountant or financial adviser for help with the creative financing part, and find a Realtor for help with regard to the finding property to invest in part. Good luck!
