Founder / President
Grant Wise is a serial entrepreneur and Founder of Real Estate Marketing University, an online media training company. Grant is known to be a maverick leader and an innovative marketing strategist unafraid to lead companies in new directions.
Grant’s story is one of education, truth, and perseverance. He’s helped more than 1000 companies, entrepreneurs, and business owners actualize their dreams through hands-on learning. Grant has been described as irreverent, artful, and dramatic with a strong entrepreneurial spirit constantly striving for RESULTS in his clients’ businesses.
Rogers, Arkansas is home. Always has been. Always will be. That said, he has given serious thought on more than one occasion to packing up his belongings and bright ideas and moving to Colorado. There is just something about it for him. Things are different now. He has a family of his own and is looking forward to raising his children in Northwest Arkansas and continuing to build a business in its booming local economy.
Starting in the construction industry, Grant has worked with every aspect of the home building process. His move into the real estate world was a welcome dream. From working on building a brokerage to building an amazing business training platform, he’s always kept himself busy and stayed focused. “Focus” is something he’s developed over time and it’s something he teaches his students.
Believe it or not, Grant is actually a BIG introvert. He’s been that way his entire life unless it came to sports, sales, or motivating people to get the hell out of their own way. If you don’t see him on social media or on stage, then you’ll probably find him lost in his own mind. One thing he is committed to in 2017 is breaking out of his shell even more to become one of the best social influencers world-wide.
