You can do all of the marketing in the world, but if you don’t follow-up on your leads, you’re only wasting your money. That’s one of the first things that caught Gavin’s attention about Melissa was how willing she was to call people back. If someone was interested in selling their house, Melissa said she was going to call them until it was sold.
Melissa and Carey quickly discovered that their complementary strengths made them a great partnership. Finding a partner to make up for what you’re not good at is a great way to build your REI network. Gavin Timms and I do this too, and it’s allowed us to expand in ways that we couldn’t on our own.
Everyone told Melissa and Carey that things would just get worse in real estate, but they knew my number one rule, “Crises create opportunities”. They dialed it into their networks, and they still did $100,000 during the time when everyone said the world was going to end.
Of course, they had to know who could still do deals during the shutdowns, quarantines, and all of that crazy stuff. That meant that they had to rely on the networks that they’d built up over the last few years.
Virtual wholesaling has freed them from their desk jobs and let them build the life they’ve always wanted, which includes laying on the beach in Florida while they make money. In fact, they even closed a deal during this podcast! That’s how awesome the virtual wholesaling life is.
