About Cody Purtle and Jared Graves

Cody Purtle and Jared Graves each worked in the oil and gas industry, doing back-breaking manual labor with pipelines and heavy equipment.Cody decided to get out after Hurricane Harvey slammed into Houston, diving into real estate as a novice.

Jared left the hard labor as a project manager in oil and gas for a desk job when he took custody of his three kids. He also took a 50% pay cut, which didn’t sit well with him. He too looked to real estate as a means to escape his regular job.

Both struggled initially, but learned as they went. Jared found Cody on Facebook, and the two connected over a wholesale deal. After that, they partnered up and used their talents to build a wholesaling business. They really bloomed when Covid-19 and lockdowns hit. Instead of shutting down or pressing pause, they increased their marketing and efforts. The gamble paid off big, as their business boomed, they have expanded to other states and are continuing their upward trajectory. And their book is being released on December 12, 2020, which you can check out at

Top 5 Takeaways from Cody and Jared:

5.  Don’t get caught up in buying software, doing this, doing that. Just pick up the phone and call, put out bandit signs, get a deal. You can figure it out as you go.

4. When you need to hire people, hire them. But have a process for interviewing and evaluating them.
