Good Afternoon all,

My name is Wade and I live in Memphis,Tn. I'm a newbie to the wholesale side of Real Estate and I'm ready to dive deep into the marathon. I have tried years ago to get into the arena of REI but, as a young guy you tend to let the negatives slow your progress. I'm ready to take Memphis and surrounding areas by storm. Well it's time to get started and focus on making a success story.

Thank you and looking forward to speaking with you all

You might consider Niche or Specialized Housing like student housing. Rents can be 2-4 times more. Remember you don't have to own a property to control it.

"if you truly want to be successful you will become a member of MIG and attend every month."

You are such a comedian sometimes Curt.........

Well I have never attended a single meeting and I have done hundreds of deals in Memphis. Joining MIG, or any organisation won't make anybody "really successful".

But I know you know that already :-)

dean, I agree but you were only doing deals by bringing buyers, you were using turnkey companies for their whole service. I don't know if you can call that wholesaling as opposed to affiliate marketing.  For a new local guy to be successful he will need to make many contacts. You had an advantage bc you used sources from our old relationships to get your now business going and it has worked.  

Which has absolutely nothing to do with the topic. Joining any organisation won't make you successful. Going to macdonalds doesn't make you a cheeseburger. Living in a  garage doesn't make you a car.

Which is why your post was so funny as it was so not true.

Getting educated and taking action will make one successful. MIG may or may not assist with that.

Good morning Everyone... I appreciate the responses to my post and Curt and Dean I too can appreciate your passion. I will take a look at MIG Curt and see what it has to offer. I appreciate the invite. Dean I will be In contact with you for some business connects and hopefully we can get some deals done. Melodee I appreciate you reaching out to me. I would love to work with you and hope we can build a great business/friendship. Happy huntings to you all....
