Lots are easy to manage.
I'm working with an entrepreneur who builds houses.

How did you find this deal and how did you negotiate it?

I was looking to purchase something at the cost of 20K ish.
I'm always looking for other opportunities for the investors surrounding me.
So, I contacted this seller and it turned out my investors were not interested in purchasing this lot.
I then agree with the seller to represent them on a larger scale.

When you find it, Just go for it!

Did you work with any real estate professionals (agents, lenders, etc.) that you'd recommend to others?

I needed to work with a friend who is a commercial broker for this deal.
It gave me the kick in the butt to go and get my commercial (in process) broker licence and the residential one (done in a month and a half).
