Key Takeaways:

"You might wait four months before you get paid. But your wholesale deals are happening in 30 days or less. And so, you've got everything kind of moving and growing in your pipeline, and you're constantly getting paid." - Sharon Restrepo

"For the brand new investor, I just think it's a great strategy because it's really, I don't know how much more you can make money as a real estate investor and reduce the risk and learn everything you need to learn about the business with that limited risk, and then making money in 30 days or less on these deals." - Sharon Restrepo

"I've always believed in doing what your competition doesn't do. So, whatever the majority of them do is probably the thing to stay away from, because you're going to spend a lot of money per lead, because everybody's doing the easy thing." - Sharon Restrepo

"My big thing is, let's not chase the money or the deal, but let's chase the solution for the seller. And I think when we do that, well, then the fruit of that is getting paid." - Sharon Restrepo
