"This book establishes a new standard for real estate authors. Kemp gives her readers delightfully written prose packed with her wealth of experiences. She lays out so many profit–generating (and loss–avoiding) ideas that while reading the manuscript my highlighter never got a rest."
—Gary Eldred, Trump University Professor of Real Estate, coauthor of the bestseller Investing in Real Estate
