EP 6: How To Talk To A Motivated House Seller + Getting Your First Deal Closed w/ Brian Evans

In this CarrotCast episode, Trevor is joined by Brian Evans, investor, and owner of The First Deal. The First Deal focuses on helping new investors close their first deal or their first 100 deals.

Brian's real estate journey started from a spot where not many other real estate investors find themselves, working on Wall Street in the Trump building.

One day he came home to find a book from his Father waiting for him. There was a post-it note on it that read "Son, read this, take notes, let's talk. Dad". That book changed his life, his way of thinking, and drove him into the excitement of real estate.

From there, he practically forced two real estate investing brothers to hire him as an apprentice. WITHOUT PAY. He learned the industry and closed his first deal with them in 2004 for $42,000. He hasn't looked back since.


In this CarrotCast episode, Trevor is joined by Alex Pardo, wholesaler, and entrepreneur in Miami, Florida. He originally wanted to be a corporate CEO and was accepted into GE’s Financial Management Program, but found that 70-80 hour work weeks wasn’t going to be his future.

He chose to backpack around Europe for a period of time until he had that “ah-ha” moment…to venture into real estate wholesaling.

He found that by getting away from the corporate “structure” he was able to drive a personal mindset shift, create the lifestyle he wants and continue to make the lives of others around him better.

Since that mindset shift in 2005, his real estate business has gone through many phases. He now has a team of employees that allows him the freedom to work on other real estate and entrepreneur projects that fuel his passions.
