Real estate is an exciting and interesting field to work in.  Sometimes the deals quickly fall into your lap.  That’s exciting!  Other times the deal is not made right away.  It can take months, even a year or more to get the deal worked out.  That’s when it can get interesting.  For example, I recently purchased two small apartment buildings which took me over a year of working with the owner to get closed.  I am glad I persisted as these properties are great additions to my portfoli

The tenants had decided to add some “color” to the décor. But seriously, who paints walls black? And poop? Who leaves dog poop all over the floor? And trash?
