You will have a complete understanding of the probate process, and a visual roadmap for success. You just need to do the work. (There is that.)  You will be confident talking to these sellers about the process.



There are over 3300 counties in the US, and each one of them has a different procedure for getting probate leads. You’e going to learn how (and where) you can find them.  Most people never get past this step. 


You need to know the language and terminology used in the probate process to be able to confidently speak to sellers. Once you do, you will show up as “the expert” every time and quickly gain the trust of the seller.


I will show you how to market to these valuable off-market leads the right way. You get a complete set of mail merge ready letter templates  so you can confidently reach out to these sellers. (Theres a complete set for investors and one for agents)

I’ll show you how to create a simple but effective marketing plan for probates. Remember that these are off-market deals, so direct mail is how you reach out to these folks.




Not only will you have all the information and tools you need for success, you will get 1 full year of ongoing support after the course. That’s right. One full year.  

Let me tell you, my friend, that is a game changer!   

Let me ask you this… 

How many times have you taken a course, then when it’s over you feel like you’ve just been dropped like a hot potato? You still have a million questions but there’s no way to get them answered.  

That’s not going to happen to you after you’ve finished Probate Investing Simplified. 

Just think of how powerful it will be for you and your business to have ongoing support with me in the private members only Facebook group. You have access to this group right from the beginning as a Probate Investing Simplified member.

My goal is to continue to grow my business and in order for that to happen, we need to have access to properties that others do not.  The only way to do that is by developing a concise, consistent marketing campaign that includes letters, business cards, a logo and a website that doesn’t require an advanced degree to maintain and update.  While I had the ability to develop those items, the schedule and consistency were a challenge.  There is also a discomfort with incorporating new steps into your business that push you outside your comfort zone.  

I had begun direct mail campaigns but, they were not reaching motivated sellers.  After hearing about how you need to be consistent, I was unsure of how to adjust the marketing to try and reach my desired audience.  I had all the pieces and Sharon helped me put them together.  More than anything the accountability and planning for me is a tremendous help.  I know how to do what I do, and now I want to do more of it.

When it comes to real estate investing it can be a very exciting as well as scary industry. Exciting in that it can provide you with personal and financial freedom, yet scary in the amount of information needed to know to be successful.  

Sharon has created one of the best programs for real estate investors. Her VIP program is customized to each student’s situation and goals. We discussed topics ranging from direct mail strategies and gathering probate leads, to the best website and VA for running a company efficiently.   

But where Sharon separates herself from others is her knowledge and passion for marketing and branding. I did not realize until I spoke with her how diverse and important the topic is. Marketing and branding have become a focal point for my business, and with Sharon’s support, I believe my company will reach a height that was unattainable before.

“My name is Michael Ramsay.  I’ve been investing for over 20 years.  I came across Sharon on Bigger Pockets and subsequently found out she had a Probate Course that was about to be launched.  At the time I was looking for new ways to obtain leads for my business, so I decided to purchase the Probate Course.  I must say I was splendidly surprised by the amount of valuable information that Sharon included in this course.  The course is very detailed in the Probate process.  After completing the course, I now have the confidence to start my marketing and speak confidently to any owner of a Probate property.  I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to start a Probate investment business.  Thank you, Sharon, for all the hard work you placed into this course and for divulging this much information!”

Thanks for putting together and offering Probate Investing Simplified.  You provided a lot of new information and insight for setting up a business and working with people going through the process.  I especially liked the weekly Q & A sessions and the letters for mail campaigns.

I cannot thank you enough for putting together your Probate Investing Simplified course. While I have done a few deals, I am still a relative novice and still work FT. I live in a pretty competitive market (as do many), so I decided to invest in the course as a way to add an additional lead source. While I was aware of the probate niche, there seemed to be quite a bit of misinformation in the market regarding how to do a probate deal, and the lead sources I could find were quite expensive.  

This course was exactly what I needed! The material was laid out thoughtfully and logically. All of the information was easily understood and the fact that you offered Q&A sessions after each module was invaluable. The course gets rid of the myths and should provide the proper tools for anyone who is willing to do the necessary work. 

As an aside, I couldn’t attend many of the Q&A sessions due to work but love that the resource was available and the fact that they were recorded.  

I have been a fan of your podcast for some time, but even more of a fan now. Thank you again for putting a real, actionable course out and for being so responsive to questions and so giving of your time. Now, shut down the course so the market is not flooded with new experts. 😉 

I hope to be able to join you at one of your bootcamps in the future!

I am privileged to have participated in Sharon Vornholt’s “Probate Investing Course”.   It gave me a shot in the arm as I was expanding my knowledge into a real estate sector in which I had limited to no experience.   

With the US Census declaring that Between 2020 and 2050, the number of deaths is projected to rise substantially, Sharon’s course could not have come at a more perfect time.  By ridding itself of the excess housing, the aging population may offer investors the most lucrative real estate investing opportunities in their lifetime.

How does the course structure work?

This course has 6 Modules, plus a bonus direct module for a total of 7 modules.  You will get one module immediately then one module a week for the next 5 Weeks, which you can dive into at your own pace! There are multiple lessons within each module. *All Bonuses including the Direct Mail Bonus and Direct Mail Resources will be available the final week of the course (Week 5). The course modules are not downloadable, but they will be available to you online forever. 

What is the benefit of doing it this way?

You will have a clear understanding of the probate process, and you’ll have your foundation in place before you spend any money on direct mail campaigns or other marketing. This is a proven path to success. 

Do you offer a Refund?

))You are important to me, so I want to be sure you have a clear understanding of the refund policy:

This course is set up so that one module is released every week for 6 weeks (which includes the direct mail bonus module and the other bonuses).

There are 6 core modules PLUS the Bonus Direct Mail Module for a total of 7 modules. There are multiple lessons within each module. These bite sized lessons are designed to be quickly consumed, so it’s easy to get through the course at your own pace. 

All of the bonuses including the bonus Direct Mail Module, the entire series of (mail merge ready) probate letter templates, forms, and other bonuses will be released along with module #6 (in week six). This will ensure that you have your foundation in place before spending money on direct mail. I want you to have a clear understanding of the process before starting direct mail campaigns. Direct mail campaigns work extremely well when done properly. 

This will greatly increase your chances for success. This course works if YOU do the work

But, if you decide this course isn’t for you, here’s how you can get a refund. You must complete the first two modules within the first two weeks after purchasing the course. After doing thatIf you decide this course is not for you, you must cancel within 14 days (before the 3rd module is released). So either way, you’ll get 1/3 of the course, and we’ll still be friends.
