Get to Know Chris Mitchell
I know alot of people are approaching the 2008 year with apprehension but I think it is going to turn out to be a great year for the Real Estate industry as a whole. Anyone that can get a home loan should be buying investment properties, there a lot of them out there right now, and a lot of short sale opportunities, Make sure you have the money to carry them for the year or the money to fix them up a little and stage them well for a quick sale. My wife and I are members of the Real Estate Investors of Nashville, and we help investors locate properties to their specifications as well as invest ourselves. We are also looking to help out-of-state investors as well as individuals looking to purchase private homes with a convenient home buying experience utilizing the many technology tools available to us.

So I thought as I added my own designations and accomplishments I would start a little glossary of terms.

Honesty, Integrity, Hard Work these are not the buzz words of a dying era, these are the mantras I strive for every day. Real Estate is not my job it is what I enjoy doing and I have a blast at it.
