The problem with a lot of these "experts" is that they have only been around a short time. Zaki is a nice guy but hasn't even seen one property cycle. When you start investing in 2009 and ride the boom of course you'll make money. It doesn't mean you know how property cycles work or what to do in a downturn. When using BA's and the like research how long they have been around and who their team is. They target young ones because they see these young guns and think "wow they did it, so can I". I have seen quite a few young guys that started not that many years ago writing books, setting up companies etc. it's a bit scary that people hand over thousands of dollars to them.
