Some of my best deals with huge equity have been through probate deals where there were no mortgages on the property.

Here's the secret to getting probate deals from probate attorneys.

You have to be in the club.

You'll hit a brick wall when you try to go in the front door so just like with any clubs, you need a referral.
 What you do is get another attorney that you have done business with or knows you to write you a referral that you can mail to other attorneys.

All you need is one.

This puts you in the club, because now one of the members is vouching for you.

I use this technique myself and had to stop because I couldn't handle them all.

Hey Dennis,
Get another attorney to write a referral is frickin genius!! I was told to just send a letter to all the probate attorneys. I like your idea much better. So you actually get probate deals from attorneys??
I am doing probate, been sending out letters for the last few deals yet. Any other probate tips/tricks?
Thanks for that advice,

What do you have the attorney say in the letter? You mentioned you had to stop this technique b/c you could not handle all the leads...did you close any deals from these attorneys??
Take care,

Dennis, thanks for taking the time to try and help the rest of us make some cash. It is very selfless of you.

If you doubt yourself, then indeed you stand on shaky ground.
