If you’re like us, you hate real estate gurus who spend their time up-selling products rather than teaching. We understand they need to sell online courses and programs to cover their expenses, and we respect their knowledge. But geez, can’t they at least teach us something first before selling us?

Well, this won’t happen at our Grand Expo! We have required each speaker to sign a solemn promise that they’re going to spend at least 90% of their presentation actually teaching us real estate strategies and techniques. Only then, in the final minutes of their presentation, our speakers will explain what programs and materials they have available for those students that want to pursue that subject in more depth.  A fair resolution to all involved, don’t ya think!
