Not to self: Presentation is immensely important. Find highly distressed scenarios and buildings that need work and takeover. Meet with the decision maker face-to-face. Do not make quick negotiations, both sides want to feel like they won the battle and got a good deal. Most people will not want to put in a lot of effort during a transaction, in terms of accounting and preparation - do it for them and reap a big percentage of the gain. Be willing to pay a premium for a prime location. Don't buy
For anyone interested in Donald Trump or real estate investing -- this book is the real deal. The case studies of Trump's deals were detailed and filled with valuable nuggets on his negotiation style. Some people might find the level of detail overwhelming, but it is precisely those details that make the deals work brilliantly.
Amazing book! A must read for people wanting to start in real estate.
Albeit a bit dry in many parts, its a great book. Some great case studies about value enhancement. A great portion about engotiation and the final chapter has some great real estate tips for personal investors.
Good insight into the real estate world and Trump's business impact, but some repetitive language that got a bit boring.
Trump's "Forward" is a PostIt note he left in Ross's copy of "The Art of the Deal." I kid you not.
This book is very interesting to read. New business persons can teach a lot from Trump, regarding the real estate business. I would like to invite all of you to read this book and get something about your business journey. I also read this article. This article is also on Trump's real estate business. If you do not have much time to read this book, you can read this small article.https://www.howthebusiness.com/money/...
This book is powerful. It has really great strategies and ideas to implement that would benefit any real estate investor. I would strongly recommend it for someone who is already in the sector but it’s not suitable for a beginner, maybe.But I do recommend it strongly
An absolute must read for anyone getting into real estate!
The book is more about Ross than it is about Trump, but it includes many interesting stories of some of the Trump deals he's worked on over the years.
Kind of boring
Been some time since I read this book. I have been involved in real estate for a long time and sometimes feel as though I know just about all their is to know, at least on a fundamental level. This book did nothing to change my perceptions. Nothing new. Nothing compelling.I can always tell when I have read a book that really makes my wheels turn - it goes in my throne room and I read parts of the book over and over again. Those are my 4 and 5 star books.This one sits on the bookshelf, collecting...
Nice book about real state; It uses Trump´s different ivestment ventures as case studies for each subject the autor proposes.Even though I don´t think they are THAT relateable to the small investor, it does share some common knowledge that might help you in the long rung, mostly about deals and negotiations.On this note, i´m guessing this book is a nice compliment to "the art of the deal". I will read that shortly.In all, an easy read, not pretencious at all and overall entretaining.
Becoming a Corporation offers protection from personalliability, but it is also expensive. It is not a step to be taken lightly, even though there are plenty of places on the Internet where you canincorporate quickly and easily.I learned the ability to sell a stock and many more...
Nice book, but a little bit beyond for me, they are talking of hundreds and millions of dollars. But overall, it does make me want to be Donald Trump, I like his style of doing business.
This is a brilliant read! After all the books teaching us theoretical concepts of how things are done, this book shows in real how you negotiate, build relationships and sustain your business.
If you're looking for the technical part of real estate investing, this is not the book. This book however, do provide ideas on how to sell your property better.
this book is nice, actually Ross knows a lot of things about this strange hair man
This is incredible information directly from the source of someone who's put together deals I dream of doing :)
excellent for anyone involved in negotiating and investing in real estate. fascinating real life examples....
