Teacher to Six-Figure Real Estate Investor w/ This “No Money” Tactic

Choosing to wholesale real estate might be the EASIEST way to kick-start your real estate investing journey. You don’t need a ton of money and you don’t need to take on debt. And with a couple of deals under your belt, you’ll have the money to buy your own investment properties!

Welcome back to the “Real Estate Rookie” podcast! Today, Amina Stevens is a real estate investor, wholesaler, and the host of “First-Time Buyer’s Club” on the Oprah Winfrey Network. But only a few years ago, Amina was a high-school educator who was teaching kids to “follow their dreams” without following any of her own. So, she left her “safe” career, got her license, and found a real estate mentor who showed her the ropes of wholesaling land.

Want to invest in real estate but feel you don’t have the money or connections to start? Wholesaling could be the perfect strategy to get your foot in the door! In this episode, Amina shares how she chose her market, found sellers and buyers, and built a six-figure real estate business from the ground up—everything you could need to get started today!
