The Path to $1,000,000: The Magic Pill (Part 2 of 4)

Kelly Edwards - Wednesday, March 25, 2015

As we glanced around the room it was apparent that we were by far two of the youngest in attendance.  Admittedly, we were anxious about finding the magic pill that would catapult our new real estate venture to the next level. There just had to be a magic pill, right?   The early 2000s were in full swing and we had recently closed on our first property (shown here) located in the sought after Cameron Village area of Raleigh, also known as Inside The Beltline. There was a chill in the air this December evening as Chris and I found ourselves surrounded by a room full of savvy investors.  Most of these folks made a living acquiring and renting properties - as real estate entrepreneurs - or were well on there way to doing so.
