Is it really that hard to invest in real estate?

I was only 20 years old when a good friend told me to start investing in real estate. I asked him, hey, you are making a lot of money and I want to do what successful at it, how do I get started? His answer was easy. Create a buyer’s list and a seller’s list and start connecting people that need each other’s service. That has been the foundation of our business. Helping buyers get sellers and helping sellers get buyers.
