Anyone who is or thinking about becoming a Commercial Real Estate investor, this book is a must. I am a firm believer in educating yourself, before starting any Business venture. This way you are more likely to succeed, then fail in your business if you have the right knowledge you need to succeed! This is a book that has a great amount of knowledge! I would recommend this book to family and friends or anyone who is considering to becoming a Commercial Real Estate Investor! Even if you would like to know about Commercial Real Estate Investing or just stared, their is a lot of useful knowledge contained in this book!
As with any "guide," this book is written based on the experiences and opinions of the author. Had some good points and gave some good advice. Author's self-promotion seems a bit like a printed "info-mercial" with his list of accomplishments that he seems to attribute solely to this book. Otherwise a fun read and definitely addressed some points that are helpful in anyone's arsenal.
I enjoyed reading this book and the author apparently knows what he's doing. That's what I really like about the book. The author is still involved in commercial real estate not, a "one and done" investor turned "expert".
My concern is that a beginning investor might decide to start with commercial property and get discouraged or, worse, end up bankrupt. Commercial real estate is great when everything is going your way but, a small problem can get really large in a hurry. This becomes particularly acute when dealing with the big dolllars involved in commercial property. I'm not saying that it can't be done but, having some experience with smaller deals definitely helps.
By the way, I am a commercial real estate investor with over 38 years experience. Just saying...
