The first deal is the toughest.  Nobody wants to do your first deal.  

Do you know what you are doing?  Nobody including you know, and nobody wants to find out.

So what if you don’t have experience in Real Estate, have no deals under your belt, and still want to get in what do you do?  If nobody will give you a chance, how do you get the first deal done?  

Everyone knows someone in Real Estate and has heard the success stories, and thought, "I need to do that".  But who knows the hard work it takes to get in, find capital, find a deal and make it happen?  How many have done their first deal?
