Interview with Jay Papasan, co-author of “The Millionaire Real Estate Investor” and “The ONE Thing: How To Get Started In Real Estate Investing”

I had the pleasure of interviewing Jay Papasan, the vice president of publishing and executive editor at Keller Williams Realty, Inc.

Jay Papasan became a best-selling author in 2003 when the book he co-authored with Gary Keller and Dave Jenks The Millionaire Real Estate Agent landed on BusinessWeek’s bestseller list. In 2005, the group co-authored their second bestseller: The Millionaire Real Estate Investor. Then, after working on Rick Villani and Clay Davis’s best-selling book FLIP: How to Buy, Fix and Sell Houses for Profit in 2007, he co-authored Your First Home with Gary Keller and Dave Jenks in 2009.

Jay Papasan’s latest book The ONE Thing, also co-authored with Gary Keller, released on April 1, 2013, and saw instant success when it debuted at #6 on the Wall Street Journal‘s bestseller list and soon thereafter climbed to #1 on May 3, 2013. Since then, The ONE Thing has made more than 300 appearances on national bestseller lists and been translated into 24 languages.

It’s a great talk, and I know you’ll learn a lot from it.
