Group Forum / Possible Hard - Private Money Conversation - This Week At Real Estate Investors of Virginia


Hello Everyone,

This week, if not as planned, we will have a moderated group forum that will consist of random topics. Due to the wide variety of topics, these are the types of meetings where most people will walk away with some great info. Landlording tips, buying, selling, rehabbing, wholesaling, negotiating, it’s all on the table for discussion.

There is a strong possibility that we will have lender Jim Sexton at our meeting this Tuesday to talk about expanding your investments to warp speed using hard / private money. If not this week it will be very soon. I don’t have confirmation just yet as I wasn’t in on all of the emails regarding this.

It’s been super high stress for the past few days for me so I’m not totally in the loop of what's happening.

I’m getting ready to need to start doing some deep breathing or some other stress relieving tactic because a person can only take so much before it drives them crazy. When it rains it pours. It’s pouring right now for me and I’m not seeing the light on the other side yet.

This past Friday my sister in law turned up dead. There is an investigation going on as there is a high likelihood that it was a murder. I sent a message through the bad guys friends that he better not see me out at the bar or anywhere as I will go after him. I was told he has had a lot of death threats since she died.

This guy was known to mercilessly beat her. A few months ago he beat her so bad he closed up her eye and she had to stitch her own face so he didn’t get in trouble. I don’t know why some of these women will get with a loser and stay with them after something like that. I was taught only a sissy will lay a hand on a woman.

So all day I watched my poor little 2yr old nephew and 5yr old niece after mommy died so my brother could take care of some things and put a GoFundMe up to get money together to cremate her and have a service. Him and her family don’t have much and it’s already stressful enough to have to deal with her death as well as having to try to figure out how they will financially give her a proper goodbye.

Those poor kids have to grow up without a Mom. I can’t even imagine that considering I’m a mommas boy. My brother is pretty torn up as well. I caught him several times trying to hold back tears because he didn’t want to cry in front of me.

Then today for the icing on the cake, I took my girlfriend to the hospital again. As you may recall, she had a double mastectomy from an extremely rapidly spreading type of breast cancer. She’s been battling cancer for several months now. Taking trip after trip to MD Anderson in Houston Texas. That is statistically the best cancer hospital in the United States and when you have something life threatening, it’s not the time to be cheap. You just do what you’ve got to do and deal with the financial circumstances later.

We were in the emergency room last week from an infection she got. It’s very serious as it’s in her chest wall right next to her heart. She was put on an IV antibiotic last week rather than the 3 super powerful pill form antibiotics that she was taking to try to knock it out. It had seemed to work but all of a sudden she started going downhill again. They now are going to keep her in the hospital for 3 to 4 days on an IV antibiotic while they will likely try to do some other things like opening her back up and cleaning her chest out, reinserting some drainage tubes that fill up with this bloody fluid several times a day, etc. If that is unsuccessful the surgeon in Houston said she needs to get an emergency flight back to her so she can do surgery again.

What a nightmare for her to have to go through. She was crying all day today. I think she’s worn out from all of this fighting. She’s a tough girl though and will pull through.

I look at all of these things that happen to people…  and wonder why it always happens to the best people... The ones with the heart of gold. The nasty mean people like me will live forever! It doesn’t matter what I do or how bad I abuse my body. I’m immortal...
