Hey everyone, it's Alex Martinez and today I'm going to talk about my first real estate deal. So let me take you back to when I was 19 years old, so I wasn't in real estate at 19 years old, I didn't know anything about real estate. What I was doing was, I was actually making sandwiches, and I was making sandwiches for 10 bucks an hour while going to school full-time, so I was working about 25 hours a week, going to school full-time. So I'd go to class and then I'd go make sandwiches all day and I'd come home every night...
After being unsure on how to progress on a real estate deal, Angel Cortez reached out to Alex Martinez for one-on-one real estate investing consulting.
This is Angel's testimonial:
So I contacted Alex about two months ago via Facebook message because I had an appointment set up to see a home. And it was a short sale. And reading on the internet and talking to other real estate agents, they really tried to push me away from the deal but I saw an opportunity. But I wasn't sure. So I sent Alex a message and he responded very quickly, within the first 30 minutes of me actually sending the Facebook message. And we set up an appointment the next day to talk about the deal and other advice he'd had for me. And one of the things that really stuck with me was how he was able to push me to a new level of confidence that I wouldn't have otherwise had. Because I had no support. And with his experience, I just felt that I could do it. And it's just something that sometimes you just need an...

Hey, everyone, it's Alex Martinez, and today, we're going over the most important thing as a real estate investor.
When a lot of people look at real estate investing, and look at entrepreneurship, they look at it as something that's a little risky.
What we do, as real estate investors and entrepreneurs is, is mitigate and lower our risk as much as possible, and then, make calculated decisions after that.
The most important thing, as a real estate investor, when...
I was recently interviewed & featured on Authority Magazine to talk about my real estate journey, investing advice, efficiency hacks, & about my most memorable failure to-date! Here is the full article & interview written up by Drew Gurley. Drew's questions are in bold and my answers are below each question. Hope you enjoy!
Alex Martinez has a great story, one that certainly resonates with the concept that you have complete control of your life and your decisions. To go from making sandwiches to breaking 7 figures of profit in 12 months takes confidence in knowing who you are.
I spent some time learning about Alex’s story and was nothing less than motivated to say the least. He’s young, energetic, and passionate about working to sustain what has come to be an amazing lifestyle, all before turning 30!

Hey, guys, What's up? It's Alex Martinez, and today's video is How to Talk to Cash Buyers and Find Their Buying Criteria.
First off, cash buyers are the real estate investors that are going to buy your wholesale real estate deals. They are most likely renovators or flippers that want to purchase a property, renovate it and resell it for a profit. You get paid by bringing them this nice deal that you get under contract, and then you sell that contract or assign that contract to them for $10,000 plus. Cash buyers want you, and you need cash buyers to buy your property with all cash.
So, you may be asking, "How do I find cash buyers?" I previously made a video on how to find cash buyers in your area in one minute or less, so definitely check that out, but some other ways are to go to your local real estate investing association, and there you can meet cash buyers. Also, when you see bandit signs on the side of the road, give them a call, because there's most likely cash buyers on the...
Here's a quick, true story about a younger gentleman (age 20) who came to me for real estate investing advice. I get into a little bit on flipping houses but this DIRECTLY applies to wholesaling real estate, as well!
This particular gentleman asking for feedback was raising capital for a property he was going to buy for $770,000. The agent he was working with told him that the property would sell at $1.2+ million all day after he put $100,000 of repairs into the property. Sounds like a sweet deal, right?
Well, thankfully, I met this gentleman at an open house for a property I was flipping at the time. He asked if I could take a second look at his particular deal before he went through with purchasing the property. He was 2 days away from removing his home inspection contingency, which would contractually force him to buy the property, or at the very least, lose his $10,000 deposit.
That night I analyzed the property for him and saw that the...
You may have heard this before: “Real estate investing sounds great, but don’t you have to get a license to start investing?”
To simply answer the question: Nope, you DO NOT have to get your real estate license in order to invest in, wholesale, or flip real estate. In fact, for my first three years of real estate investing, I wasn’t licensed, and I was able to generate well over a million dollars of profit.
So, believe me when I say: it is not necessary to get your real estate license to begin investing.
However, I did eventually become a licensed real estate agent, which opened up additional revenue streams & opportunities in the industry.
In this article, I’ll give you my Pros & Cons of getting your real estate license as a real estate investor. These insights will help you if you’ve ever asked the question: “As A Real Estate Investor, Should I Get A Real Estate License?”
