Local Author and Real Estate Broker Donates Book Proceeds to Help Find a Cure for Sturge-Weber Syndrome
Local author and real estate broker, Mitch Ribak, is donating the proceeds of his latest book, “So You’ve Got Your Real Estate License … Now What?” to Lola’s Gift to fund research efforts in the fight to cure Sturge-Weber Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder.
Upon debut, “So You’ve Got Your Real Estate License … Now What?” quickly became the #1 real estate best-seller on Amazon and earned an average rating of five stars. Mitch has been honored by the remarkable reviews the book has received and looks forward to hearing how his readers have used his strategies to streamline their internet marketing efforts, convert more leads to sales and avoid common industry pitfalls. The greatest reward for the time he devoted to writing the book is seeing the proceeds aid in efforts to find a cure for a rare and often overlooked medical disorder known as Sturge-Weber Syndrome.
In 2013, a major breakthrough was announced that could lead to an eventual ease of Sturge-Weber Syndrome symptoms through drug intervention. Researchers identified a gene mutation that occurs before birth as the cause of the neurological and skin disorder. Since then, they have been investigating drug and targeted therapy options that can counteract the disorder’s effects.
In addition to donating the proceeds from his latest book to fund research efforts, Mitch speaks at real estate seminars and provides individual coaching sessions in return for donations to Lola’s Gift.
Mitch Ribak is a two-time author, serial entrepreneur and accomplished real estate broker. After successful business ventures in online dating websites and a paintball complex, he became a realtor. Four years later, he opened Tropical Realty of Suntree with a skeleton crew. Since then, the brokerage has grown exponentially and expanded its reach to three locations with over 90 hard working agents.
“So You’ve Got Your Real Estate License … Now What?” is available for purchase on Amazon
