Francisco Gomes began his professional life as a preacher, but found his path soon leading him to the world of real estate. It was his love of talking to people that got him there, and his love of talking to people that lead him to success. Ultimately he became the director of ABS School of Real Estate & Insurance, where he and his staff help guide people down that same real-estate path. Through courses and books, the pros prep students to earn a real estate-license or a home-inspector's certification so they can charge people every time they say, "Nice house."
