    Question Talk to me about REVA Academy...

    I'm considering specializing as a REVA but have *no* real estate knowledge whatsoever. Will taking the bootcamp course with REVA Academy give me the skills I need to go out and market myself to clients? I'm not really the "fake it till I make it" type - I like to have solid skills before...

    Is this a mistake?

    I've been having a super hard time coming up with a name for my business. The truth is, I'm in a financial crisis and need to move on now and get things started. I have a name that I thought about early on, but it contains a word that some people may or may not misspell - it's a common word...
