2.1. My story

2.2. What are you looking for?

2.2.1. Make sure you're working with "boots on the ground" wholesalers. Not rehabbers. You want to work directly with the guy who goes to sellers houses and negotiates with them.

2.2.2. Someone who is good at sales, talking to sellers and negotiating

2.2.3. Someone who is NOT good at marketing, following up, systems, etc

2.2.4. Someone who just wants to drive around in their truck all day, look at properties, talk to sellers, make offers, etc

2.2.5. Someone who already wholesales 2+ deals a month

2.2.6. I usually pick the wholesaler 1st, then market 2nd

2.3. What do you say to them?

2.3.1. Hi! My name is... and I am investor in the XYZ area.

2.3.2. I live in CITY. I am investor and I'm doing a lot of marketing in the area.

2.3.3. I have too many leads and I don't think I can handle all of them

2.3.4. I am looking for someone local that can possibly work my pre-screened motivated seller leads... and partner with me on some of these deals

2.3.5. You probably aren't interested in helping me with these leads, are you?

2.3.6. This is how it works...

2.3.7. I pay for the marketing, answer the phones, prescreen the leads, manage the CRM, send all the offers, do all the follow up, etc, etc

2.3.8. I am just looking for someone to take the leads that I give them, and call the seller back, maybe go see the house, and make an offer.

2.3.9. You already have some good buyers, right?

2.3.10. If you get it one of my leads under contract, you can sell it to one of your buyers, and we will split the net profits.
