Starting Out As A Property Locator (Bird Dog)

On this podcast episode I talk about how to get started as a property locator or bird dog for other real estate investors. I share my story of how I got started as a bird dog working for my mentor Ben, and why being a property locator for another real estate investor is one of the best ways to learn about investing in real estate. Learning how to find and evaluate deals is the most important piece of the real estate business. And it is the one piece that eludes most new real estate investors since they never put the time into learning how to do this. If you can find good wholesale deals then you can wholesale these houses to other investors, you can fix and flip these houses, or you can keep them as rental properties. The most important thing is learning how to find good wholesale deals at wholesale prices. And one of the best ways to learn this is by being a bird dog or property locator for another real estate investor. That way you risk their money and not yours. And you don’t need to risk your cash (or your credit) while you learn. That is why we call our Home Study Course “Millions in Real Estate With No Cash and No Credit” since the goal is to buy real estate with other people’s money without risking your cash or your credit. Our bird dog training program (Partnership Program) trains hundreds of new investors every year and we have trained over 3,000 new real estate investors how to become property locators at our Wholesaling Real Estate Boot Camp which is held twice a year in South Florida. We also hold a Fixing and Flipping Houses Boot Camp twice a year in South Florida. Once you know how to find and evaluate deals, selling the houses is easy. The only thing stopping you from being a full time wholesaler once you know how to locate deals is having a cash buyers list (which you should be building from day one).

Excellent Content!!!!!

This is a wonderful podcast to listen to with such valuable content. I was very interested to listen to your take on why one should purchase rental property.


Best real estate investor podcast.

Lex gives you real tips with actual names of multiple sites and services to use from the beginner up to advanced. I feel he’s giving away his classes for free on the podcast. Most podcasts stop short of details and give generic advice unless you join there groups.

I’ve been looking to get into the world of real estate investing but everyone I ask gives me answers that makes it all sound way too easy. This podcast gives you the real deal. More please!

Great show for beginners or experts!

As an amateur flipper since I was in my teens, I kind of have gotten pretty good at identifying great opportunities and taking advantage of them. But, Lex dives much deeper and gives actionable tips on how to make sure you are looking at everthing before making any decisions. I'm hooked!

Be Prepared to Learn!

Two words: Information Dense. Sweet Moses. I’ve listened to other real estate investing podcasts but this by far is the most practical, the most hands-on podcast I have heard to date. You can tell that the host, Lex, is very passionate about real estate investing. That passion with his experience translates into an excellent podcast. He shares theory about a topic and then tells a story about his experiences in the real world. That to me is gold!
