My fiance Tim has a wealthy family, although they never shared any of that money with him.
Tim paid her own way through school, got a mortgage for our first house, and in general never asked her parents for any financial help.
Tim enjoys to rest on her own two feet, and not take handouts, but last year Tim’s parents passed away in a plane crash, it was quite a shock to all of us. An even bigger shock was when Tim found out she had inherited several giant pieces of Jacksonville real estate. She was the sole heir, and now the owner of millions of dollars worth of beachfront real estate in NE Florida. I thought my pal and I should just hire a major Jacksonville real estate firm to begin selling everything, however Tim had another idea. She booked us a flight to Jacksonville, where my pal and I had a series of meetings with odd real estate brokerages. Tim was smart enough to realize that whichever Jax real estate supplier represented us would rest to make millions of dollars in profits. That is a pretty juicy payoff, which means various of these NE Florida real estate companies were willing to bargain for our business. Tim managed to begin turning a profit off the inherited Jax real estate before my pal and I even sold it! After a few afternoons of negotiation Tim selected a small, however up-and-coming Jacksonville real estate supplier that was willing to lower their commission by 10%. I never knew that Tim was so cagey about negotiation, or that she knew so much about selling real estate in Jacksonville.
