About the Instructor

Allan Wiltshire

Allan Wiltshire is a NOVICE investor and proud to wear such a mantle.  In January of 2017, Allan awoke one morning with the firm conviction that being a Real Estate Investor would fill the convening years of his life and career.  While not a stranger to real estate investing, there was never a desire to pursue it as a full-time business.  That changed last year.


In May of 2017, Allan joined GaREIA at the monthly General Meeting, and that week began attending GaREIA Subgroups and building relationships.  After 6 weeks of “peer learning” and on-the-job training in the Atlanta real estate market, Allan had hit a wall and was ready to ask for a return of the annual dues.  While putting pen to paper at the point of high frustration, it came to Allan that he lacked a personal model for learning and Real Estate Investment education strategy.  It was here that the Real Estate Diamond: A Training Model for the Novice Investor was born. 


The expert investors and leadership of GaREIA graciously afforded Allan the opportunity and guidance to present his model over 4 weeks at the New Investors Subgroup during the Summer of 2017.  Allan closed his 1st wholesale deal after 4 months of joining GaREIA and since that time has gone on to do a total of 4 deals.  Allan feels that being labeled as a “novice” investor is a vote of confidence in his training and progression of this Real Estate career, because the next level is “Expert.”


In the Fall of 2017, Allan was appointed to the Board of Directors of GaREIA and as of 2018 is honored to serve as 2nd Vice President of Administration.
