Learn about the creator of the wholesaler's toolbox
Hi! My name is David, and I'm the guy behind The Wholesaler's Toolbox, and to be honest, I never intended to become a real estate wholesaler or have this website... but here we are.
My real estate career started many years ago when I decided to obtain my real estate license. However, I quickly realized that driving people around to view properties and holding open houses on weekends wasn't my cup of tea.
So, I thought the mortgage business might be a better fit for me. Controlling all the money and having "banker's hours" seemed like a good idea. And it was great—I made amazing money until... the housing market crashed in 2008.
Suddenly, as my grandfather would have said, "I was up the creek without a paddle."
Scrambling to keep food on the table and support my family, I found a job performing occupancy inspections on houses in foreclosure. Discovering that job was a blessing and helped me get my head back above water.
But as always, I craved something bigger and better. (If you're reading this, I believe you can relate.)
One day, while browsing employment postings on Craigslist, I came across a real estate investment company looking for someone to inspect homes so they could make buying decisions. Bingo!
I already knew about real estate, spoke the lingo, and was already inspecting houses (kind of), and this paid a whole lot better! I called them up, went to meet them, and landed the gig as their property inspector.
Did you ever notice how life sometimes takes unexpected turns? Well, it happened to me again while doing property inspections for these investors. One day, they said,
"You know, you should start rehabbing houses for us."
At first, I tried to laugh it off and explained that I had absolutely no experience with renovations, but they persisted. Not one to turn down a challenge, I started hiring crews and began renovating houses.
Pleased with the quality of work I was delivering,
they gave me more and more. After a couple of
years of working from 5 am to midnight, I was burnt
I had been thinking a lot about how I was making
these guys had so much money while I was the one
working long hours.
Then, I overheard someone talking about real estate wholesaling, and my mind started racing with questions.
Once again, I couldn't resist the challenge of learning something new, so I jumped in headfirst to become a real estate wholesaler. Every time I asked someone the best way to learn the business, they said, "YouTube."
But I wondered how I would ensure I didn't miss any crucial information. I'm the type of person who likes having all the necessary information laid out in front of me so I can follow the correct steps.
Long story short, I couldn't find a reliable source of information or helpful tools without paying a fortune to some real estate guru (and I'm not fond of parting with my money).
So, through trial and error, I learned how to wholesale real estate, and it has been the best decision of my life (aside from marrying my beautiful wife and having three remarkable kids).
And that's how The Wholesalers Toolbox was born!
I have worked hard since I was a teenager, spent years learning how to become a great salesman, overcame my fear of public speaking, held realtor licenses in two states, and had a successful career in the mortgage industry.
I started inspecting houses, rehabbed many more, and became a successful wholesaler.
