I started working with 14 years ago, Chris, had never worked with an investor before. He was new to the area, but he was hungry, detail oriented, and very smart. We did great work together.

• “What is your process for working with investors?”

• “Do you own investment properties?” Again, this isn’t a deal breaker, but if they do own investment properties, you two will be able to speak the same language. • If they do own investment properties, I like to ask, “Why are you still a Realtor, and not just an investor?” These questions let me get to know their thought process about real estate. • “How do you find properties for investors?” I like to hear more than MLS listings, if possible. If they’re not able to get more listings, I want to know if they will refer me to properties that are for sale by owner and such. • “Are you willing to make low offers?” Most of my offers on bank- owned properties are 50 percent less than the after-repair values, and we get a share of those. You want a Realtor who is willing to make low offers, even if they sound ridiculous, when you are able to justify your numbers. Research an agent online. Everybody is looking up everybody on the internet these days. Find your agent online and read reviews past clients have left. Much like finding an investor-friendly real estate attorney, it’s not too challenging to find an investor-friendly Realtor. You just have to be willing to put in the leg work.

1Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. Proverbs 13:20 He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm. John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
