Mitch Stephen – Tips for Hiring an Acquisition Manager, Seller Financing and More – The Best of the Best Shows

Are you at that point in your business where you know you need help? Hiring an acquisition manager just might be at the top of that list.  Today, my guest Mitch Stephen has some tips for hiring an acquisition manager whether it's your first one or your next one.

Real estate investors want to know things like: When should you hire one, and once you make the decision to hire an acquisition manager, what do you look for in that person? Also, how do you pay them?

We're also going to dive into seller financing in this show and a whole lot more.

San Antonio investor Mich Stephen has purchased more than 1500 houses. He is also the author of 3 books. I think it's safe to say he knows a thing or two.
