[One of the best things about our business is meeting other real estate entrepreneurs. Today, to celebrate Labor Day in the US, we introduce you to our hard-working friend, Eugene, who will share his journey into real estate wholesaling.]
How I Got My Start
How I started in real estate investing was by watching YouTube videos from sites like Flip Houses Like Your Hair’s on Fire, attending seminars, and by having a mentor named Darrell Muhammad, who changed my life.
Where I Am Now
I am now a real estate investor wholesaler, and my team and I provide value, quality, and service by finding off-market properties for other investors who specialize in rehabbing properties, owner financing, or keeping the property as a rental. We receive our commission at the time of closing. On average, we make $5,000 per wholesale deal. With wholesaling as a real estate investor, we use no money down, no credit, and no risk. There is no Real Estate license needed to be an investor, either. We pay cash for houses as is, and we are able to help home owners who don’t have the money to fix a property or don’t want to go through the typical Real Estate process, by providing a peace of mind with a fast closing.
