Hello from Washington DC!

Hello fellow investor!

Ok, I’m not in DC anymore. I’m in Houston now. But I WAS there over the weekend! The weather was pretty crummy … cold and drizzling nonstop … but I still managed to have a GREAT time.

I traveled there to attend an online marketing seminar. Picked up some cool tips and tricks that we can use to get more motivated sellers from Google. And that’s good for you since we turn right around and put them on MyHouseDeals.com.

While the seminar took up most of my time, I did manage to sneak out for a little fun. Went to a restaurant and coffee house in Dupont Circle. I hadn’t heard of it, but apparently, it’s a trendy area. Lots of fancy restaurants and bars with plenty of yuppies roaming the streets.

The whole reason for escaping the seminar was to meet up with my friend Abe. I know him from my days at IBM in Austin, TX back in 2001. He lives in DC now with his wife and baby. We had a great time. As the saying goes, I’d rather spend time with one old friend than ten new ones!

I did manage to snap 3 pics along the way, and I’ve posted them below. Enjoy!…

Pic 1
Me with Yanik Silver, the host of the seminar. He did a great job. Lots of content and the turnout seemed to be a healthy 500+ people, but I didn't count.

The "Free Government Money" guy happened to be an attendee! The guy is a total nut. I backed away before he bit my ear off! Just kidding. He's pretty cool. You may recognize him from these books... www.booksbylesko.com.

A pic of beautiful Adriana at the coffee house. Abe happens to be hogging up much of the picture. LOL. Abe and I were joking that he doesn't get any attention anymore. It's all about Adriana! (Isn't she cute?) But he's completely fine with the focus being on her.

Well, that’s all for now. Until next time, happy (and profitable) investing!

MyHouseDeals was founded in April of 2005 and has since provided information on thousands of bargain-priced properties with over $7 Billion in equity (and growing!) In addition to property lists, we help investors succeed by providing valuable tools, resources and education. Most of the properties on MyHouseDeals are single-family houses. Many of these properties are wholesale deals, which are for sale by other investors. Others are motivated seller leads, which are for sale by homeowners who are often in a bad situation. These properties are typically discounted by far greater amounts than bank foreclosures.
