Real estate wholesale is no easy game to break into. From negotiating contracts to finding an interested buyer, the business takes people skills, business savvy, and a certain will to survive before even the slightest profit can be made. For real estate entrepreneur Alex Saenz, however, there was never any question about giving up. From living in a trailer park to making his first seven figures, Saenz’s story shows just how far grit and a little bit of luck can take someone who is willing to hustle for what they believe in.
One look at Saenz’s YouTube channel shows you how far the young entrepreneur has come on his road to real estate success. From his penthouse in Phoenix, Arizona, the 23 year-old millionaire records and produces slick videos detailing his techniques for real estate success. Saenz has founded more than ten of his own companies and regularly pulls in a six-figure monthly salary. Besides his main money-maker, a seven-figure real estate acquisition firm, Saenz also runs SolarFuse.com and the ALL IN Entrepreneurs brand. Yet while Saenz’s degree of success may seem overwhelming, his real estate empire was not built in a day.
Saenz began paying his way through college by pushing shopping at a local grocery store, but he always had his eyes on something larger. That’s when he was introduced to the world of real estate investing. With only $500 in his pocket, Saenz dove headfirst into real estate, driving neighborhoods and picking up any odd-job he could. His appetite for all things real estate was insatiable – no matter how offbeat the job or difficult the task, if it was related to real estate, Saenz was there.
Before another year had come to a close, Saenz started his first real estate business, Home Equity Pros. By staying lean and hustling to pick up new clients, Saenz and his team managed to close 62 deals totalling $615,000 in revenue with more than 60% profit margins. Saenz continued to grow his real estate company and soon co-founded ALL IN Entrepreneurs with partners Carlos Reyes and Sal Shakir. By twenty-two, Alex Saenz made his first million.
By scaling a wholesaling business so quickly, Saenz sparked a revolution in the way fellow investors looked at real estate. As wholesale real estate took off, so did Saenz influence in the wholesaler community. His YouTube channel now boasts over six thousand subscribers, while 183,000 hopeful entrepreneurs follow his advice via Instagram. Saenz also offers a series of tailored wholesaling sources through his website, learntowholesale.com.
Although Saenz may seem like he’s reached the pinnacle of his career, the young entrepreneur is far from the end of his climb. With new business ventures around the corner, Saenz looks to leverage his experience and energy into everything from solar panels to branding and marketing. In the meantime, however, Saenz is most excited to help others overcome poverty and bad programming, while helping the next generation of entrepreneurs achieve success at a young age.
