  3. Hi Sir Eli,

    I hope that we could make a connection. I’m a like-minded individual, I blog about finance and but I’m more interested in business and entrepreneurship. I’m also looking for the right opportunity to become a real estate investor and probably start as a broker or freelance agent. Would you shed some light as to how one becomes a real estate broker?

    Have a wonderful New Year!
