I spend a lot of time talking with both my current investors and new ones and I am constantly getting asked one question more than any other.

“How do I know who is a legit operator?”

I have been in the real estate business for over 35 years and have done over $350M in transactional volume in 5 states, one commonwealth, and one other country.

And while all real estate is similar, it’s all extremely nuanced. So how do you figure out who knows enough to handle your money?

I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly in my time, and I wanted to share with you from both personal experience and observation what I feel are the “absolute NO GO” signs to watch out for.

These are things that I believe in strongly enough that they are total deal breakers. I mean, I would not walk I would RUN from a deal if I saw one of these.
You should not allow your hard-earned money to be anywhere near a deal with one or more of these.
