I am a retired Registered Nurse and Florida Real Estate Broker. I only used my RE license for 4 years in the early 80's. I preferred buying property for my own portfolio. I've bought rental properties since 1980. I recently discovered that I missed my true vocation and that was "flipping" homes. This year I remodeled/refurbished a home and enjoyed every single minute of it. I plan to refurbish the other properties and sell them when the market improves that is...and it will. Be patient.
