"The mistakes he names can be learned from, and his transparency makes his stories of success both exciting and inspiring." -Clarion Review
"Simply the best book I have ever read on real estate investing. Well worth reading even if you are more interested in buying single family homes or other investments." -Goodreads Review
"If you've ever had an inclination to get into the commercial real estate business or are seeking a better profit than buying and selling (or renting) single-family homes, this book is for you." -Goodreads Review
"Murray has done a great job writing a book that both newbie commercial investors and those with more experience will enjoy and find beneficial. I own several single family rentals and a 24-unit apartment building that are all performing well, so I'm not a newbie, but nevertheless I found myself highlighting key insights on almost every page of the book." -Amazon Review
"This book is a gold mine for reference and gave me the confidence that I needed before venturing into an investment of this type. Even if you are short on funds, it teaches various ways of working around that. " -Goodreads Review
"Forget the infomercials promising you real estate riches for no work and no money down. Take a lesson from Author Brian Murray, who decided he needed an extra source of income and turned it into a multi-million dollar award-winning real estate company." -Goodreads Review
"It took me a week to read this book since I found myself stopping to highlight and take notes or thinking of how certain lessons apply to my real estate business." -Amazon Review
"Need a side hustle to make ends meet? Been thinking about owning, renting or moving some real estate to see if you can turn a profit? If so, then this book is what you need to read to get practical advice, real-life examples of successes and failures and simple, down to earth business strategies." -Amazon Review
"So good I am reading it again!" -Amazon Review
"Written in a conversational yet informative style, this book is witty, engaging and helpful. Unlike a lot of guru's, the author has walked the walk and puts the pieces together in a way that is "do-able' without huge networks, access to an IPO or other unlikely situations. Instead, this is the story of how a surprisingly average guy pulled it together - he shares his struggles and success but even more impressively...he shares his inner misgivings, mistakes and stupid blind luck." -Amazon Review
"A must read for beginners and seasoned veterans!" -Amazon Review

Brian also was able to put into words something that I've felt but not been able to express as clearly as he did. In response to a friend who asked him how much money his real estate business needs to be worth before he would walk away (sell it), he says the question misses the point. "I might have started my business for the extra income, but it became more than that with every hour of my time I put into growing it, as it does for most entrepreneurs." The book has plenty of examples of the hard work and tenant drama that make real estate investing via commercial building ownership completely different than passive investments like the stock market, but the pride and self-satisfaction from making a positive difference in the lives of tenants and in the community from improving commercial property comes through throughout the book.
I liked his tips of buying local, you will know the area and the market, but he also tells you how to buy in places that aren’t local. He makes sure you understand the risks and considerations and this is true throughout the book. He wants you to be prepared for something that is a big investment. Another aspect I enjoyed was the project building he uses as an example throughout the book. It is educational and interesting to watch the project unfold and reading about his doubts as he worked on the deal.
I don’t see any negatives with this book as it helps anyone, newbie or veteran, with getting and staying in the commercial real estate market. I would recommend this to anyone thinking of dipping their toes into the real estate market.
I have never invested in real estate but do plan to invest in residential real estate in the future. Investing in residential real estate has always been a goal for not only me but my fiance too. My fiance read this book after I did and stated that it was a helpful and necessary tool.
I do enjoy how this book isn't just for real estate professionals but its also for beginners (Like me and my fiance). He gives you the basics along with more advanced information. Someone with zero experience or knowledge would find this book extremely helpful as well as a person who has a lot of experience.
Its great that a lot of the advice he offers doesn’t require someone to be wealthy by any standards. He suggests a ton of ways to keep costs low.
Although I would have liked some more financial tools, he does do some examples of the basic math you would be doing. Which does really help you understand how it works.
I have to say my favorite part is how he included and went over all of the investment vocabulary. That is very useful because most people probably don't know a lot of it. Very helpful.
At the end of the book he gives a list of other helpful resources. The kindle version has hyperlinks to access them.
