Hello Matthew, I am just wishing you the best of success with your excellent book Property 101. It is very rare that I come across a book on real estate that is in the league of other financial securties writer's. Thank you for taking the time and more importantly writing about real estate in a easy to read manner. I am still learning after 30 years in real estate. I am also a true contrarian like yourself and have learned this art from my favourite contrarian, Jim Rodgers (Former Quantum Fund). I have been preaching this to our Investor net work and corporate clients for some time, but most find it very hard to-do. Thanks again! Kind Regards, - Chris Kerr - The New Kids On The Block Pty Limited - October 2015
