Wholesome Wholesalers:
A newsletter on flipping houses and giving back to St. Louis

My wife, Laurie, and I have been flipping houses way before HGTV made it cool—think of us as the original Chip and Joanna Gaines, but without the outtakes and glamor. We’ve been doing this for about 30 years now, and we’ve seen it all—houses that look straight out of Leave it to Beaver, hoarder homes filled to the brim and more. And we’re sending our expertise to your inbox each month with our realtor newsletter, Wholesome Wholesalers.

Whether you’re interested in selling your home as is, buying one of our turnkey rental properties or just finished bingeing a home improvement show and want to see what the behind-the-scenes is like, our realtor newsletter has something for you. We designed Wholesome Wholesalers to be a real estate newsletter for clients—so we hope to deliver value and insight with each issue. Every time you see Wholesome Wholesalers pop up in your inbox, you can expect:

  • A behind-the-scenes look at flipping houses.
    The reality of home improvement is much different than what you see on HGTV. Often, we buy homes that have fallen into dire disrepair, and there is lots of work to do—lots of dirty, unglamorous work. Like repairing termite damage. Or gutting the whole house to start over again. It’s hard work, but we enjoy it. We like renovating homes and we’re really good at it. Subscribe to our real estate newsletter for clients and join us on our home renovation journey!
  • Helpful home improvement tips and tricks.
    Since we’ve completed thousands of home improvement projects over the years, we have a couple trade secrets up our sleeves, and we’re itching to let them out in our realtor newsletter.
  • Charity, charity, charity.
    Forget location, location, location. At Wren Realty, we’re all about giving back to the St. Louis community. From donating all leftover possessions to local charities to gifting a portion of our profit from every home sale to Heifer International, we do plenty to help both the local community—and the world. Keep tabs on our philanthropic efforts and the generosity of the whole Wren community … It’s not called Wholesome Wholesalers for nothing!
  • Client testimonials.
    We’re not your typical quick-and-dirty wholesale buyers—we go above and beyond for each of our clients, sometimes long after closing. Hear what our clients are saying about us.
  • Before and after photos.
    If you’re hooked on the HGTV before-and-after photos, be on the lookout for our newsletter, where you’ll find home transformations that happened in your own backyard. At Wren, we evaluate the ’before,’ appreciate the ’during’ and relish in the ‘after.’ See what we’ve been up to throughout the St. Louis community.
