  1. I've ridden in, and photographed this car. Absolutely stunning! The new wheels do look better than the mesh ones it had at the time. The power is breath taking.

    I appreciate it. I've had two very optimistic consultations. I just put a lot of stake in a personal referral, especially to someone billing $380/hr +exp

    Definitely the latter. Like $15,549 and counting. Exdrag car poorly reverted to stock. I know I know, PPI. But let's save the time and skip to recommendations based on the facts.

    I hate that I have to seek a second recommendation for a lawyer, but here we are. I recently purchased a ZR1 out of Santa Monica, and long story short, the car has some incredible flaws that the dealership very much intentionally concealed. Dealership employee tells me last week (on a recorded phone call, with consent) that the owner of the dealership authorized him to purchase the car back and reimburse expenses. General Manager is now telling me to pound sand and he would happily bury me in the discovery costs with his "Team of lawyers on Beverly Hills" if I want litigation. So of course, here I am seeking advice for representation.

    Who knows of the magic hangover cure pill?

    I was puking my guts out for about 5 hours before my brother's wedding. 20 min before the ceremony, I'm handed Zofran. I was hopping, skipping, and jumping down the isle in no time. I think it's script only though.

    Owner Occupied Advice?

    This is exactly what I'm looking to do. I don't need the cash flow. I live modestly enough and don't need a huge space.

    I completely understand the commercial vs resi argument. The problem, like emanon said, is liquid required to enter the commercial sphere. I see MF real estate as a stepping stone, a safe way to get into the game. Even if all that comes of this is living rent free (or almost) for a year or two, That would go a long long way to making the next step. 5 year goal is 3 MF residences, then with the liquid made through that and the day job, stepping into something bigger. Time is on my side, as far as age is concerned (25 years from retiring 12 years early)

    I'm fortunate enough with my day job that I don't need cash flow. I'm looking for long term wealth growth and appreciation. Looking to buy existing structures, not build. Luis, I'm open to recommendations. I'm open to really anywhere in the Twin Cities with preference towards landlord friendly cities such as Savage, Prior Lake, etc.
