Let's face it. Just as with any other kind of investment, you can make a mint or lose your shirt in commercial real estate ventures. Usually, however, it is the gamblers and the novices who lose and the knowledgeable insiders and prudent investors who gain. Real Estate, a program endorsed by the National Association of Realtors, is not a "get rich quick" program. It has been developed for the serious commercial real estate investor... the person who looks before he leaps.

Where does Real Estate: How to Buy, Sell and Lease rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Good Book but written in the 80's, So #'s Outdated and may not really apply. Talked about a family making a great living off of $40,000 total household income.

Everyone likes the idea of turning the ugliest house on the block into the best house on the block and making a profit. Until now a system has not been shared on how to successfully complete this task on time and budget without getting your hands dirty. This audiobook not only cracks the code but shares the proven path and system to have a systems-based rehab business that makes consistent profits for ordinary, everyday people.

What did you love best about The Peebles Principles?

What would have made Thriving as a Commercial Real Estate Broker better?

Better Narrator, get rid of all the fluff and ra-ra I have already read think and grow rick, rich dad poor and every Tony Robbins book. I hate when you name a book specifically about a subject than spend 90% of the book telling me how to think. Thats not what I got this book for, it was utterly a waste of time

Would you ever listen to anything by Patrick Kennedy again?

Not a Chance

How could the performance have been better?

Narrator was impossible to understand at 1.5x, at normal speed accent was unbearable to listen to. Acoustics was horrible, could tell they were switching rooms and parts sounded as if it was recorded on an iphone probably.

What character would you cut from Thriving as a Commercial Real Estate Broker?

All of them! What do Monkeys in Lab using software programs have to do with Commercial Real Estate. Give Me a Break, that would be far fetch for Steven Speilberg to pull together.

Any additional comments?

Maybe the worst book that had this specific of a title that i've ever read!
