The introduction to Phil Pustejovsky’s book, How to Be A Real Estate Investor, did two things for me. First, it gave me insight into where he came from and a reason to trust his methods. Second, it inspired me that there is a way to succeed if we allow ourselves to be taught.
Mr. Pustejovsky is a real estate investor who graduated college as a mechanical engineer. He sought out a different path to traditionally accepted paths to success when he turned to real estate investing. After hitting rock bottom he found a mentor to “show him the ropes” of the real estate investing game. Through this book he is sharing those tidbits of knowledge with us.
What struck me as incredible is that there are ways to invest in real estate with no money and no credit. Effort and know how are the keys to turning a profit. I’m convinced that anyone willing to exert the effort will be able to take the real life education in this book to earn money without spending a dime on anything other than maybe gas and food.
What I appreciate most is this book isn’t just a candy coated version of the process. He shares the reality, the ups and downs, of real estate investing. He and his company, Freedom Mentor, have done deals all across the nation. This has allowed them to develop a process to help truly dedicated individuals get their start in real estate investing. This book is only a bird’s-eye-view of the process and isn’t deep with specifics. Having an actual mentor in the process to teach the nitty-gritty to a beginner is definitely recommended.
