If you’re looking to get a taste of success in real estate investing sooner than later, hiring a real estate wholesaling coach is one of the best ways to do it.
They’ve experienced everything you’re going to experience, made all the mistakes you could make, and have learned from those mistakes to find the path of least resistance when it comes to investing.
But, when you’re spending good money trying to find the right coach, there’s a caveat.
You want to make sure you’re taking time to understand what the coach delivers on, that they have your best interests at heart, and that they actually have the experience they claim to have.
Since there’s 100’s (possibly 1,000’s) of real estate coaches teaching the wholesaling strategy, it’s way too easy to hand over money to someone who is only in it for themselves.
That’s why we’ve put together this list of the top 10 real estate wholesaling coaches to hire in 2023.
It’s our hope that you’re able to save time, connect with a coach who understands exactly what you need, put your interests at the forefront of the conversation, and help you learn the wholesaling game even faster than you could on your own, with free information.
Kicking things off…
1. Ryan Dossey
Ryan is quickly becoming known as one of the best wholesaling coaches in the industry with his CCF (Create Cash Flow) method & the results he’s getting for his students.
To date, he’s helped more than 350 investors lock in off-market deals worth over $50mm net.
His focus is on helping you through the process after the initial honeymoon period wears off from your first deal and you realize that you need to keep your deals flowing if you ever want to be consistent.
If you want to learn more than how to just get your first deal done — so you can keep deals flowing and stay off of the revenue rollercoaster that most wholesalers experience, check out Ryan’s program.
By reading his content, you can tell that he remembers what it was like to do his first deal and the struggles he encountered while doing it — something most coaches have long-forgotten.
He’s taken our #1 spot as the best coach to hire in 2023 because of the affordability of his programs, his unique coaching style, and his ability to help students get out of their own way and find real success.
2. Pace Morby
Pace Morby is one of the biggest proponents of the “SubTo” strategy that gives wholesalers a unique way to get more deals done.
With wholesaling, you’re finding a seller, putting the property under contract, and then finding a cash buyer who will purchase the contract from you.
With SubTo (or Subject To), though, you structure the contract a bit differently. Instead of immediately re-assigning it to a cash buyer, you’re actually holding onto the property.
This gives you the ability to rent the property out, use it as a long-term or short-term rental, or even move into it yourself by taking over payments on the property and relieving the owner of their financial burden.
You’re buying the property “subject to” the existing loan so you essentially assume ownership without having to go through the loan process.
It’s a really slick strategy and we haven’t found anyone more experienced with it than Pace Morby. If you’re looking for a new, creative way to wholesale properties, we recommend looking into SubTo.
3. Dolmar Cross
Dolmar Cross, part of the REAL Advisors network, has grown his coaching company to become #8 on the Inc. 5000 list of Florida’s Fastest Growing Companies.
He then turned that success into an HGTV show “Zombie House Flippers” based out of his local market, Tampa, FL, to showcase what he’s learned doing more than 1,000 real estate deals.
Through the REAL Advisors network, Dolmar is teaching students how to use automations to find off-market properties, connect with sellers, run comps, secure contracts, and keep deals flowing and going into 2023 has helped more than 300 students find success in the real estate industry.
With a team of coaches and support staff on his side, Dolmar and the REAL Advisors understand how to help you start building momentum and stacking wins with the wholesaling strategy.
4. Brent Daniels
Brent Daniels and Wholesaling, Inc. focuses on helping you close more deals while reducing your marketing costs and, ultimately, increasing your ROI.
His goal for new students is to help them get their first deal done in the fastest time possible and then build on the foundations so they’re able to transition into consistently doing multiple deals per month.
The mentorship program offered by Wholesaling, Inc. gives you direct, 1-on-1 coaching from Brent, an exclusive members-only community, daily Zoom sessions with interactive training so you’re staying ahead of trends in the industry, and premium courses to take you from beginner to advanced investor.
If wholesaling seems complicated to you right now and you’re willing to invest in your education to speed up the learning curve, it might be worth considering whether or not Brent and his team can help you hit your goals.
5. Sean Terry
Sean Terry runs the “Bear Market Million” coaching program based on what he’s learned after being in the industry for more than 19 years — and experiencing multiple bear markets.
Since most investors can make money when the markets are good, Sean focuses on teaching people how to weather the storm when the market conditions aren’t so hot.
He never really intended to become a coach but after watching friends and family lose so much money during market crashes, he knew that something had to change.
That’s when he began developing the programs that he sells today.
The level of experience Sean has developed after being in the industry so long does give him a unique competitive advantage — but, with that, also comes a significantly higher price tag for his programs.
6. Max Maxwell
Max Maxwell was well-known as the first African American to represent professional bull riders in 2018.
While that sounds like it would be an incredibly lucrative career, Max found himself sitting with a few hundred dollars in his bank account when the pandemic began.
He started looking around to see what he could do with all the new time he had on his hands and decided he was going to try his hand in the real estate industry.
Then, in just 3 short years, he took himself from completely broke to being worth more than $5 million while riding the rocket ship that was the real estate industry during those 3 years.
Now he’s teaching people what he’s learned after overcoming the difficulties he faced on his way to becoming a multi-millionaire in the real estate industry.
7. Tom Ferry
When it comes to investing in real estate, you’re going to have to learn to negotiate.
Whether that’s talking to your sellers so you get the best price possible or working with your buyers so you flip the contract for the highest price possible, negotiation skills cannot be ignored.
That’s why Tom Ferry focuses his programs specifically around helping people become better negotiators.
He’s also started making a shift into helping people develop the right type of mindset that becoming a successful wholesaler is going to require you to have.
His programs won’t necessarily teach you how to start wholesaling houses but can help you significantly increase your profit margins and ROI on the time you invest to lock down deals & flip your contracts.
If negotiating and closing deals has been a weakness in your skill set, it might be worth looking into what Tom is offering in 2023.
8. Lex Levinrad
Wholesaling is one of Lex Levinrad’s biggest focuses in his coaching programs. His focuses on helping you get your first deal done so you can get cash flowing, build your credit, and your network.
Then, as you’re flipping contracts, his programs shift into helping you learn how to fix and flip houses so you’re making more money in every deal you do.
Lex got his start in real estate in 2003, just as the bubble was building leading into the 2008 market crash.
During that time, he flipped more than 1,000 single family homes and has been a landlord for more than 18 years. Currently, he’s buying and flipping between 15 and 20 houses per month.
If you are looking to make the shift from wholesaling into fixing, flipping, or renting and becoming a landlord, the programs Lex offers might be what you’re looking for.
9. Ed Hayes
Ed Hayes may be the youngest member on this list but in his short coaching career he’s managed to help his clients generate over $2.4 million in commissions and at least 12 people become 6-figure wholesalers.
Ed understands how powerful a good marketing campaign can be in the right hands, and focuses on teaching people how to set up marketing systems that connect them with motivated sellers.
Then, as your business grows, he shifts focus into helping you learn how to hire and train a team so you’re able to spend more time negotiating and flipping contracts and less time hunting down your next deal.
Even though he’s still early on into his investing career, he doesn’t let that hold him back. You can see through videos on his YouTube channel that he’s always looking to over-deliver and make sure there’s no stones left unturned in the education he provides.
10. Brian Buffini
Brian Buffini & Company is currently one of the largest real estate coaching and training companies in North America, boasting a history of more than 25 years and over 3 million clients served in more than 45 different countries.
With this track record, his One2One Coaching program claims that members earn an average of $369,400 per year — more than 10 times the national average.
Brian does currently teach wholesaling but tends to lean into a more holistic approach to real estate investing by teaching you how to become an agent, get organized and efficient with your time, and build your business in a way that helps you reach your goals.
He works with a team of coaches that have a wide range of experience in the industry so you’re able to get support around the specific hurdles you’re dealing with at any given time.
If you’re short on time or just want to get into wholesaling and making money as soon as possible, hiring a real estate wholesaling coach is one of the best things you can do.
While many people will try to absorb free information, put together the pieces of the puzzle themselves, and figure things out as they go, smart investors know that if they surround themselves with people smarter than them, their journey will be much smoother.
The real estate wholesaling coaches we’ve featured on this list can help you avoid making mistakes that could cost you a ton of time (and money), and shortcut your path to success in this industry.
As with any major decision, consult with each of the coaches. Ask them questions. Help them understand where you’re at and the goals you have. Check out their free content to make sure they’re legitimate.
And then make a decision based on who you feel best about hiring.
