Up Close and Personal
I’m Alan David Kosinski, and on this page, you’ll get to know me a little better. I’m known as a professional author, speaker, and real estate wealth building expert, and for over 35 years I’ve come pretty close to perfecting many aspects of the real estate field from investing to brokerage, and I share my extensive “hands-on” knowledge through writing, speaking, mentoring, and partnering.
I’ve spent most of my lifetime learning what works and what doesn’t in building wealth, starting with no money, no cash, no credit, and no personal connections. I feel that I’m an enthusiastic crusader of making people aware of the world around them and how to win at the game of life. My drive is to make the world a better place for all.
Here is my favorite and most popular quote:
“We are here for one purpose and one purpose only: To help people. And to the extent that we help people is the extent of our own happiness.”
– Alan David Kosinski, Life Extraordinaire

I can help make the world a better place for 100% of humanity by helping in two very distinct ways:
