I just wanted to say thank you for all the help, education, guidance, support, and everything else you have done for my family and me! Before REIN, we did a couple of houses a year, and this year we’ll surpass our goal of 40 deals. One of my goals this year was my Platinum pin, 50 properties in 3 years.
