After 9 Months..I completed my first deal! $3000

After 9 Months..I completed my first deal! $3000

It has been 9 months of grueling hardwork with this business but I can finally breathe some relief. Here is how it happened..

I ran into an investor/Realtor that I had met at an investor's club (go there). He knew what I was doing and said he had a property under contract that he wanted to flip thorugh a double closing (it was a HUD property). I told him that I would contact my buyers and get some people to look at it. He agreed to pay a fee for $3000 if I did, it was obvious that he was making much more but I didn't care.

The deal looked like this..it was a split home valued at $95K and he had it under contract for $15k and we would sell it for $30K, he would get 12K (minus closing) and I get 3K. Heck of a wholesale deal! Of course it need some work but that's not important here.

It took a few showings and some phone calls to finally get a buyer but we closed today. The crazy thing is that I didn't do anything but bring him a buyer and he did the rest. AMAZING! I have marketed with bandit signs and made offers though my Realtor and yet this was how it happened. God works in misterious ways and I will take it!

The lesson to be learned from this is to get out there and network because without that this would 've not happened. I have always been shy and not very confident so if you feeling the same way , JUST DO IT!

The other funny thing is that today I got Dean's new book. Coinsidence or maybe Deans way of saying "I told you to hang in there". I want thank you Dean for changing my life and to the DG family for being there when I really needed it. I know I don't come here often because I been so focused on making offers but now I can relax a bit and give back.

God bless!

Great Story

Hey Martin thats a great story! You stepped out of your box, did some networking and bingo your first deal. I can relate to the fact that your shy, and that takes you a little extra effort to put yourself out there, because its the same for me. KEEP IT GOING, mike in ct..


Way to go!

I am so excited for you. Doesn't it feel good to complete your first deal? This is just the beginning of your success! Good for you!

Congrats Martin!

That story is very inspiring to me. Heck, I think most people are looking for that $10k - $20k assign deal. I think that there's nothing wrong with that, and as I read your story, I started thinking, I could use $3,000 right now.

Still looking for an Investors Club out here in Palmdale. I can do that all day!

Once again, very inspiring to me. Now go and do more!

Way to go!

Martin that is a great story! Alot of people want to hit home runs when the do their first real estate deal, and by that I mean big cash. But I would say yours is a homerun just by the fact that you earned a check without alot of work, just by playing "matchmaker" as Dean and Greg Murphy say. Keep up the good work, and good luck on the next one.

Got IT DONE!

Way to Go Man! The first one is done and the HUGE mental block has been lifted. I am still working on my first wholesale deal. My first deal completed was actually when i bought my Rental property when I wasn't even thinking about buying it myself when it was under contract! Things change fast on every deal!
