The Commercial Real Estate (CRE) industry is HARD. Commercial Real Estate is not for the weak hearted; however this article offers 3 pieces of advice that will help cut down your learning curve and perform FAR above the majority of your competition.
FACT: Per Tom Ferry’s website (one of the top producing real estate brokers in the United States) 87% of all real estate agents FAIL and get out of the industry within the first 5 years of being licensed. My guess is that in the Commercial Real Estate space, that number a lot higher, likely in the mid 90% range.
So why do the vast majority of new entrants fail? Is there not enough business to go around? Has every property owner already forged their relationships with existing brokers and thus all clients are already spoken for? Is it a lack of experience in doing deals? Lack of network, creativity, hustle, etc?
The brutal truth is: it can be a combination of all of these things. ...

Meet Tyler. Tyler Toubeau started working with me when he had already spent a year and a half of time, $30,000 in real estate courses, and $12,000+ on marketing trying to get his first wholesale deal. Unfortunately, Tyler was not able to get his first wholesale deal alone in those 18 months.
He attended workshops just like you did and was very skeptical. Tyler knew that if he didn’t make a change in his life that nothing was going to change and he decided to trust me and the process and jump right in.
After a year and a half of spinning his wheels, he started working with me and completed his first wholesale deal WITHIN 3 WEEKS!
Tyler did an amazing job on this wholesale deal and has now completed multiple other wholesale deals, as well!
This video is perfect for you if you’ve ever wondered, “How am I going to get my first wholesale deal?”
In this video you’ll see:
Are you a Real Estate Investor and ever wonder the question of: "Do I Still Make Offers Even If There Are Offers Higher Than Mine?"

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.
