Welcome to BP! Have you done a search on the site yet to find others that are in the city you will be investing in? If not, I would suggest you do that first, and then see if they have any recommendations. A wholesaler is going to be pushing their properties. A realtor has a duty to protect your interests, and also knows the local area. Whatever you do, make sure you do your due diligence. Get educated on the local market, look at prices, cost per sq. ft. and what finishes, lot sizes, etc. are so that you're comparing apples to apples. Don't look at Zestimates and think they can be relied on, as they don't take all the criteria into account. (age of home, neighborhood, size of home, lot size, quality of finishes, etc.) Good luck.
