Today, I am going to share a little wisdom I heard from a group of the best real estate investing minds I have ever met.  When we met Fortune Builders a couple of years ago, they had already made a name for themselves as a premier property flipping company and had gained national notoriety as one of the hit companies on A&E T.V.'s "Flip This House".  We were interested in having them speak to our investors about real estate in general and they were interested in seeing our operation up close.  What resulted from that first meeting has been two of the absolute BEST companies in their respective fields teaming up to help investors around the world take advantage of this crazy real estate market.
