Wholesaling Real Estate Guide
This is a transcription of the Flip2Freedom podcast with Sean Terry. In this episode, Sean interviews Robinson Aries and finds out how wholesaling took him from bankruptcy to making bank.
Sean Terry: This is Sean Terry from the Flip2Freedom podcast and we are on episode number 94. Today I’m going to interview Robinson Aries, a guy who went from bankruptcy to making over $150,000 flipping HUD homes. His story is gut wrenching. What he went through, and now where he’s at today, just because he tripped across a Webinar that I did, and he took action. He took action while he was watching the Webinar. He had one screen up. He was watching my Webinar about flipping HUD homes, and he had another screen up where he was checking out comps, looking at the property. He talked to his real estate agent that happened to be a NEID broker and he placed bids the same day he was watching the Webinar. He didn’t think. He just did it, and he got a deal. I’m super excited to have him here. He sent me an e-mail a ways back, in November some time; he told me his story and I couldn’t believe the power that information can have on a person. Where, literally, it can change their entire life. You are going to be shocked about his story and what he’s gone through and what he’s accomplished in such a short period of time. So, online with me is Robinson Aries. What part of Florida are you in, Robinson?
Robinson Aries: Well, I’m originally from Ecuador. I moved to the United States ten years ago and I basically started from the beginning. I started as a realtor first. I was thinking that was the best way to go, getting my license. But in that time, the market was getting harder. I had a couple of friends in the business as realtors and they said, “Get your license and just wait right now and try to get into business.” So, that’s how I got started back in 2003; I got my license. I came to the United States in 2002. I moved from my country to Miami. lived in Miami for a year until I got all of my legal papers in place, then after, I started working as a realtor.
Sean: So, you probably did well because Florida was cranking in 2003, 2004. The market went bananas in 2005 and 2006. How did you do during those years?
Robinson: Well, it was great because I started at the right time. I was selling houses as a realtor. At the same time, I decided to start investing and buying some properties. Back in 2004 and 2005, there was a lot of construction here, especially in my area when I moved to West Palm Beach. That area was a very hot area for pre-constructions and I sold a lot of properties for a big company. One of the largest builders in the United States was building here. They were building custom houses, so it was not a set up community. You could just build your house right on your lot.
