My Published Writings (Books, Courses, & Blogs)

I, Rick Tobin, provide written real estate, financial, and economics content information for various types of books, ebooks, blogs, college course textbooks, national and international print media article publishers, individual state and national real estate courses, "white paper" research papers for legislators, real estate investment clubs and investor groups, national private money lender associations, newspapers, newsletters and e-newsletters, and other sources.

I've created entire real estate courses and college textbooks for some of the best-known real estate schools and educational firms in the state and nation (30+ states), including the largest real estate educational firm in America.

In July 2020, the Armed Forces Dispatch and Navy Dispatch (same media group), the largest and oldest military publication on the West Coast for Navy, Marine Corps, Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard personnel, published my article about the many benefits of VA mortgage loans in their printed and online papers. 

Between 1998 and 2008, I was the most published author for AD Kessler's Creative Real Estate Magazine. For the May 2006 cover story, the same national publication featured me on the cover under the heading of A Creative Financier for their main story that month. This publication was one of the most famous national real estate publications in America over the past 50 years.

I'm a graduate of the University of Southern California (USC), and have held eight (8) different types of real estate, financial, and mortgage brokerage licenses. To date, I've written millions of published words for some of the most respected educational and investment firms in the nation and world in my own name or as a ghostwriter. 

Many of my past articles were published on topics such as Multi-Family Apartments, Residential Real Estate, Office, Medical, Mini-Storage, Industrial Warehouses, Mobile Home Parks, Hotels & Motels, Gas Stations and Car Washes, The Social Media Revolution, Big Data, Digital Currencies and Digital Payment Options, U.S. and Foreign Stock Markets, Commodities, Bond Markets, Real Estate Education Businesses, Real Estate Investment Clubs, Real Estate Crowdfuding and Equity Firms (some of my clients who have hired me for writing assignments have included multi-billion dollar firms which used my published articles as marketing information for their own personal clients and propsects), Senior Housing, Residential Development projects, and even Land Deals across the USA. I've also provided clients with articles about Index and Mutual Funds, REITs, Credit Default Swaps and other Derivatives, and other wide ranging Financial, Economics, Business, and Legal topics both in the USA and across the world.

There may be once in a lifetime real estate investment opportunities for all of us due to the combination of extremely low real estate prices, artificially suppressed residential and commerical property inventory levels, and rates near all time lows today.
