    Great podcast….the question is how did someone go from making $6,000 on his first deal to making 200 offers per month and closing on 130 properties in one year? If he is financing all his deals…how did he make that big jump? Would love to know how that transition took place?

    • Brett Snodgrass

      @Alex S. Excellent questions! Well, it happened over time. I did not make $6,000 on my first deal and then the next month close on 20 properties. It took time, consistency, and a lot of work. I slowly built up a team and reinvested the profits, like any growing business would do. We do not finance all deals but when we do I know who I can call to fund the deal. I have built solid relationships with only a few private money lenders so they trust me when I ask for money for transactions. To you it seems like it was a big jump, but to me, it has been a long journey and a wonderful ride and I thank God for the opportunity.

    I just wanted to give a quick shout-out to Brandon & Josh. It was humbling and honoring to be a guest on the show. Thank you, guys! BP is Amazing and has influenced me on a business level and a personal level so much! I appreciate both of you.

  3. Nathan G.

    Another great podcast. Even though I have zero interest in wholesaling, this was an informational and entertaining show.

    Brett, my only concern is that you have basically built a job. I know you intend to replace yourself with an employee but why don’t you hold some of these properties as long-term investments? After ten years it seems you would have an amazing portfolio and some serious passive income.

    The story Josh told during the random 5 at the end was hilarious hahaha. Thank you guys again for putting BiggerPockets together. This website and the podcast gave me the confidence to purchase my first “househack” last december and i’ve benefitted so much in such a short amount of time that i’m putting offers on another property right now.

    Brett , amazing podcast #231. I am a NEWBIE, and have spent countless hours building my KSA (Knowledge, skills and abilities) I have to say during this short journey, I have yet to come across someone who has a BIGGER PURPOSE. I thank GOD for your inspiration, as I too would like to build a business for the purpose to bring more Glory to GOD. Its actually in my Mission statement.
    I love the concept of simplicity, and integrity. One of my favorite quotes , “IF YOU DONT STAND FOR SOMETHING, YOU’LL FALL FOR ANYTHING”

    Thank you again

    ….I would be remiss to not thank Josh & Brandon. You guys are incredible, and I look forward to 1000 + Podcasts.

  6. Stephen Barton

    Awesome show you guys! So glad to finally see Brett getting the attention he has earned. It has been my honor to know Brett as an investor but more importantly – as a friend. What an amazing episode for all of us, new and otherwise. Thank you, Josh and Brandon, for getting Brett on this show. He truly is someone we can all look up to in real estate and in life.

    No idea if you (Brett) or anyone else is reading replies to this podcast now that it’s January of 2018, but in case you are, or someone else who may want to weigh in, I want to ask you about your concept of buying deals off other wholesalers. Obviously, I understand how rehabbers buy from wholesalers to get the house at a price low enough to be able to fix it up and then still make a profit, But how does it work when it’s a wholesaler buying from another wholesaler? Is this kind of like double-wholesaling, in which A wholesales at a VERY low price to B who then turns around and wholesales it to the rehabber at a higher but still low price? If so, it seems like that would be especially challenging for the original wholesaler, as he/she would have leave enough “meat on the bone” for not one but two subsequent investors. Is my understanding correct? Thank you!
