In this video, a Pro Wholesaler Student came into the office and I taught him about wholesale real estate investing. In this article, I will recap the 3 TIPS I covered with Mike so that you can learn how to start wholesaling real estate sooner rather than later!
1. Get Access To The MLS
2. Attend Real Estate Investors Association Meetings (REIAs)
3. Only FOCUS on 1-2 Marketing Strategies (NOT 5-10 Strategies)
First off, what we talked about was getting MLS access. What's MLS access? It's the Multiple Listing Service. It's a database of all leads on the market in your area. It’s very important as a real estate investor, and as a wholesaler, to get access to this because, if you get access to this, you have access to all the leads on the market! Now, on the MLS there are houses that are for sale that have been renovated… These aren't really good leads to fix &...
Once your wholesale real estate business starts to bring in more deals, doing all the work alone will be increasingly difficult. Since sealing each wholesale deal entails completing many tasks, you’ll have to wear different hats. However, some tasks can be very challenging while others will be more mundane. Once work starts pilling up after sealing a few deals, you will find it important to build a wholesale real estate. Doing so will relieve you some workload while allowing you time to build and grow the wholesale real estate business.
Look at your wholesale real estate business as a football team. While growing your wholesaling company, you have to bring the best players and coaches into the team.
The first season entails playing all positions in the team including the position of the owner, head coach, and the general manager. This will help you to develop more skills and get you more involved. However, you...

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 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...

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!

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!
