Pub. Date:
With humor and grace—as well as an eye for the fabulous and outrageous—real estate rookie Alison Rogers offers an insider’s tale of the hottest real estate market in the country.


Expanding upon Rogers’ weekly national column in Inman News, Diary of a Real Estate Rookie chronicles a former real estate journalist’s wily adventures, from a gutsy attempt at starting a real estate business with only $16,000 to the (eventual) taste of sweet success. Along the way, Alison drolly relates her escapades, among them an attempt to flip abandoned shells in Newark and the rental of a Greenwich Village apartment to a famous movie star. Quirky and informative, Rookie offers real estate and financial advice in tandem with tales of suburban real estate agents, manicured New York trophy wives, and innocent ripe-for-the-plucking first-time buyers. Real estate rookies and seasoned vets alike will delight in Alison’s unique voice and perspective as she discovers her pathway out of corporate monotony to independent success in the real estate business.
