    Hey Ali,
    I’m a fellow native of the great state of California, residing in Antelope Valley and I just so happen to run across some of your input on Like you, I am a real estate investor (part time) and am very curious as to some of the things you are doing. For example, I read that you invest overseas in Nicaragua… Why so? I’m sure you have the numbers totally worked out but how did you even come up with an area like such to invest in?
    I’d really like to pick your brain as I truly enjoy talking real estate!

      Hey Ivory! Sure, anytime. Nicaragua was very random and unexpected. It was an opportunity that popped up in a real estate investing magazine and it sounded exciting & rebellious enough for me to be interested in so I checked into it, loved it, loved the country, and I was sold! I don’t do anything down there anymore currently, but it’s still an amazing country!
