Some of the Best Books On Real Estate

Some of the best books on real estate are some of the most common ones but for unrelated various reasons. Most books on real estate only give anecdotal information and, with the laws varying from state to state, can be difficult to apply to your career.

What I decided to do was to grab a few of these books, both hard cover and also on audio book. I picked up one from Gary Keller (of Keller Williams) Donald Trump & Dean Graziosi. I enjoyed them all but for different reasons.

First off, Gary Keller offers the most practical approach to any real estate agent getting started. He’s one of the most popular real estate agents on the planet and has, in my opinion, one of the most successful brokerages in the US. All the information he provided in his book was applicable to me when I was getting started. His book is really for someone that maybe is a part of a small mom and pop office where there isn’t much training. After one get’s their RE license then few offices offer ongoing training. For the most part, you will have to go to your local board or MLS to obtain any relevant on going training. However, Gary’s books are good and, like I said, give you valuable insight for getting started. I recommend his “The Millionaire Real Estate Agent: It’s not about the money…it’s about being the best you can be!”

My next two favorites are Donald Trump and Dean Graziosi. Now, these are two polarizing individuals. Either you love them or you hate them. I happen to like them both.

For The Donald, I recommend “Trump Strategies For Real Estate”. Now, if you are in a small market you won’t find any real applicable strategies as most of the insight is from DT’s experiences in NYC. The one thing that does irritate me about his books is that, from what I can tell, he doesn’t put pen to paper and write the book. He co-writes with another author that he trusts. Now, nothing wrong with that but I want to hear the author talking to me. There was some valuable information in the book that I read and the insight gained from made me think in ways I had never thought of before. The way he structured and negotiated some of those deals is mind boggling. A very interesting read for sure.

Now, Dean is an interesting cat. If you look him up on line that guy is selling everything from cars to real estate. I like that he has a history selling informational products. One interesting thing I learned from him was that he shared with me how to buy tax liens. A very interesting concept and one that is easy to implement. Well worth reading.

All in all, none of these books gave a step by step process to getting started as a real estate agent and, honestly, I don’t believe any book on the market will give you those tips and tricks encompassed in one book. However, I have found that they are practical in the advice offered. If I had to pick the best of the three I would recommend Gary’s books as a first read. You really can’t go wrong. Especially for the agent that is looking to brush up on some fresh concepts or the new agent looking to get started. The Donald and Dean are good for the real estate investor looking for additional strategies. I enjoyed those for different reasons that I applied to my real estate investing career.

Rick Spears is a man of many skills and interests. An avid outdoorsman who loves camping, hunting, and writing, he has challenged himself to the ultimate adventure: a solo trek into the Alaskan wilderness, the home of countless predators who will have no fear of him. In the past, he had traveled in relative safety on hunting trips. Accompanied by just a few members from his hunt club and a photographer, they had encountered little danger. But now, he’s going it alone in regions where he can’t rely on help from the outer world. If things turn deadly, no one will even be able to hear his call for help, let alone respond to it. For the first time in his life, he will be truly alone with only his wits to keep him alive. He can’t wait. Driven by adrenaline and ambition, Rick has spent months planning his adventure. He wants to write a book about a solitary life in the wilderness, a life without electricity or modern comforts, in the hopes of experiencing something that approximates what the old-timers endured. He knows that the only way to write that story with any credibility is to live through it himself-assuming he survives.

Upon winning the prestigious 2013 Crime Writers Association International Dagger Award, the judges praised Alex by saying, “An original and absorbing ability to leash incredulity in the name of the fictional contract between author and reader. A police procedural, a thriller against time, a race between hunted and hunter, and a whydunnit, written from multiple points of view that explore several apparently parallel stories which finally meet.” Alex Prevost-kidnapped, savagely beaten, suspended from the ceiling of an abandoned warehouse in a tiny wooden cage-is running out of time. Her abductor appears to want only to watch her die. Will hunger, thirst, or the rats get her first? Apart from a shaky eyewitness report of the abduction, Police Commandant Camille Verhoeven has nothing to go on: no suspect, no leads, and no family or friends anxious to find a missing loved one. The diminutive and brilliant detective knows from bitter experience the urgency of finding the missing woman as quickly as possible-but first he must understand more about her. As he uncovers the details of the young woman’s singular history, Camille is forced to acknowledge that the person he seeks is no ordinary victim. She is beautiful, yes, but also extremely tough and resourceful. Before long, saving Alex’s life will be the least of Commandant Verhoeven’s considerable challenges.

He lived in the dark ages of the future. In a loveless world, he dared to fall in love. In an age that had lost all trace of science and civilization, he had the courage to seek and find knowledge. But these were not the crimes for which he would be hunted. He was marked for death because he had committed the unpardonable sin: standing out from the mindless human herd. Ayn Rand’s classic tale of a dystopian future of the great “We”-a world that deprives individuals of a name or independence-anticipates her later masterpieces, “The Fountainhead” and “Atlas Shrugged.” This seventy-fifth anniversary edition of “Anthem,” celebrating the controversial and enduring legacy of its author, features an introduction by Rand’s literary executor, Leonard Piekoff, which includes excerpts from documents by Ayn Rand-letters, interviews, and journal notes in which she discusses “Anthem.” This volume also includes a complete reproduction of the original British edition with Ayn Rand’s handwritten editorial changes and a Reader’s Guide to her writings and philosophy. In Ayn Rand’s novels you have found more than great works of art-you have found a philosophy of reason. “I had to originate a philosophical framework of my own, because my basic view of man and of existence was in conflict with most of the existing philosophical theories. In order to define, explain, and present my concept of man, I had to become a philosopher in the specific meaning of the term.”-Ayn Rand “Now available for further reading on Rand’s philosophy: “Objective Communication” by Leonard Piekoff.” Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism is increasingly influencing the shape of the world from business to politics to achieving personal goals. In “Objective Communication,” Peikoff explains how you can communicate philosophical ideas with conviction, logic, and, most of all, reason. “Also available from Penguin: an enhanced edition/app”of” Atlas Shrugged.

Apache


Apache


$7.95


The second book to feature Jake Silver had its publishing date brought forward due to demand, and like the first book, Saving Tom Black, this proves to be an excellent read too. Jere D. James has a wonderful talent for making the reader care about the people he writes about, even those who could be seen as the bad guys. The story’s main character is a woman, Sophy. A woman with a heartbreaking past that sees her living with an evil man, a man she is saved from by an Apache. It is the relationship between Sophy and Nantan Lupan, the growing love between them, that brings forth the book’s main message of racial prejudice and hypocrisy, the latter something Jake Silver will battle with as he fights to end this relationship before it goes too far, and if that means having to kill the Apache to do so then so be it, even if this also risks destroying his own bond with his sister Sophy. Having Jake Silver’s sister in the story allows Jere D. James to fill in more about Silver’s past, tell a little about his childhood and parents. As Silver attempts to return his sister to civilization he will find himself struggling with doubts about his own relationship with Betsy, his growing feelings of being trapped giving rise to an anger that will see him picking fights. When the Apache kidnaps Sophy – the only way Nantan Lupan belives he can be with the woman – Silver finds himself on a deadly hunt in the desert. Jere D. James packs this tale with exciting and gripping situations that grab the readers attention from the word go, making the book very difficult to put down before the end. And even as the tale comes to a close Jere D. James has one more surprise to spring, one that will have the reader very eager for the next book in the series, Canyon of Death, something that in my opinion can’t come fast enough! Review by Steve Myall, Western Book Review

Arabella


Arabella


$11.97


Georgette Heyer had a handful of unforgettable heroines, of which Arabella is one of the most engaging. Daughter of a modest country clergyman, Arabella Tallant is on her way to London when her carriage breaks down outside the hunting lodge of the wealthy Mr. Robert Beaumaris. Her pride stung when she overhears a remark of her host’s, Arabella pretends to be an heiress, a pretense that deeply amuses the jaded Beau. To counter her white lie, Beaumaris launches her into high society and thereby subjects her to all kinds of fortune hunters and other embarrassments. When compassionate Arabella rescues such unfortunate creatures as a mistreated chimney sweep and a mixed-breed mongrel, she foists them upon Beaumaris, who finds he rather enjoys the role of rescuer and is soon given the opportunity to prove his worth in the person of Arabella’s impetuous young brother. PRAISE FOR GEORGETTE HEYER: “Our Georgette Heyer display of the Sourcebooks reprints has been a huge success, not only to those early fans like myself, but to many new readers who appreciate her style and wit.” Nancy Olson, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC “Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen.” Publishers Weekly “Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to.” Katie Fforde
