I'm a native Southern Oregonian, having lived in the Rogue Valley my whole life. I grew up in a Real Estate family and had the instinct to demand a discount on the first home my wife and I bought. We found a great deal on the MLS, made an offer and watched as 20 other offers waltzed in. Our great deal quickly evaporated in a bidding war. This experience unraveled a thread. I've since discovered the secret to buying Residential Real Estate at discount. 9 years later I've owned more than a dozen homes, helped investors flip dozens more and switched careers. I'm now a top 5% Realtor in my valley serving buyers, sellers and investors.
