I am looking to wholesale in the area as well. I am thinking about becoming a realtor once I get this wholesaling thing down. I would suggest joining the Cincinnati REIA if you have not.
Check out local investor meetings through MeetUp.com and NationalREIA.org.
Usually, once a property has hit the MLS, it's too expensive for wholesale. The way I get help from agents is that they call me when they go to list a house but it's too trashed for the retail market. The junkers are my sweet spot!
You might want to get in touch with Sean Cole (https://www.biggerpockets.com/users/sean_cole). He's a local wholesaler whose business area includes Warren County.
