A common mistake made by real estate investors is to forget why they knock on a seller’s door. By “forget,” I don’t mean the seller answers the door and the investor stands there with a stupid, lost look on his face. I mean the investor doesn’t understand the basic objective of why he’s there at the seller’s home.
Do you know the ultimate objective of meeting with sellers? I mean, why are you there? What’s the purpose? Is it to be given a tour of the seller’s house? The reason an investor knocks on a seller’s door is to get to the kitchen table. You want to get to the kitchen table so you can ask Pete Fortunato’s famous question: “Why are you selling such a nice house like this?” The answer Pete’s question allows you to get a better understanding of what the seller wants and why he wants it. Having this information allows you to structure an offer around the seller’s unique wants and needs.
Come join us at the Atlanta REIA Wild Wild West Group on Monday, March 23rd at 6:30PM at Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta, where Bill Cook will show YOU how to take the “what” and “why” you get from the seller at the kitchen table, and construct a win-win offer that helps the seller get from the uncomfortable situation they’re in, to a situation where they’re more comfortable and willing to do business with you.
Remember: If your offers don’t help your sellers to improve their current situation, they’ll turn your offer down flat! So remember the ultimate objective of why you meet with sellers: To make them a written offer!
If you want to know how to make offers that can’t be refused, you need to be at this event!
Join us and you will learn:
- When Should You Make An Offer?
- How Do You Make An Offer?
- What Is The Difference Between A Contract And An Offer?
- What Is The Best Kind Of Offer Paperwork To Use?
- How You Can Make 5 Written Offers A Day.
- And much, much more.
Bill and Kim Cook are a husband and wife real estate investing team. They live on a horse ranch in Adairsville GA, and have been investing in real estate since 1995. Their investment portfolio is made up of single-family rental homes, mobile homes, a small mobile home park, plus notes and options. They built their business simply by knocking on sellers doors and making offers the seller can’t refuse.

REACT is now taking the Real Estate Investing world by storm as well as their most recent program CATS (Complete Agreeable Terms System), which was just released in October of 2014.
Jon and Stephanie have trained with and worked with some of the biggest names in Real Estate Investing. To name a few, Ron LeGrand, Robin Thompson, Lee Phillips, Al Aiello, Ted Thomas, and many others. Not only have they mentored hundreds of their own students, they have also mentored hundreds of Ron LeGrand’s real estate students.
Seeing a great need for another Real Estate Investing Association in the Southwest Florida Region to help educate and train Real Estate Investors, Jon & Stephanie approached some of their associates and decided to form the Florida Gulf Coast Real Estate Investing Alliance. They are looking forward to continuing to bring knowledge and training to as many Investors as possible and are always continuing to keep their skills fine-tuned and cutting edge so that their knowledge can be passed to those that they associate with.

Leveraging Virtual Assistants to
Grow Your Wholesaling Business!
So often spoken about…
So often misunderstood…
So often they just don’t work out as well as we’ve heard they would…
Life on the beach with your VAs doing it all… If it was only that simple!
We are talking the wholesaling process from A-Z and how VAs fit in to that plan. And one hint… they CAN do more than you think so you can quit trying to do everything yourself all the time. I am amazed at how many investors still do too many “minimum wage activities” in their business. VAs can be a powerful asset to your business if you use them the right way.
My name is Frank Iglesias. Come join us on Tuesday, March 17th at 7PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs as we network, do what is now our standard deal analysis at every meeting and then we will dive into this often talked about and usually misunderstood subject!
This Atlanta Area Wholesalers group is primarily for wholesalers who are serious about the business and not just “trying” Real Estate out. Frank started this group to work with other wholesalers who are serious about building their business using the utmost of honesty and integrity. We are looking forward to exploring how we can grow together in our local market. We hope you will join us!

Frank will take us through the process of deciding if a deal makes dollars and sense. If you bring bad deals to cash buyers more than a time or two, they are not likely to take you seriously nor consider your deals in the future.
Frank leads the Atlanta Area Wholesalers Group that meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month and often will spend an entire evening analyzing potential wholesale deals. This month at the Atlanta REIA North meeting we’re going to do the same thing, so BRING YOUR DEALS!!!
Last month at the North Group, Frank spoke about running your business as a business. This month we have invited him back to help you learn how to accurately analyze potential wholesale deals. We are excited to have him cover this important topic which you are sure to enjoy and benefit from.
You will learn…
- Is there enough money in the deal to wholesale it?
- How do I analyze a deal so that it meets my cash buyer’s purchase criteria?
- What should I say about repair costs?
- Is this property in location where investors are willing to buy and hold or fix and flip?
- Can I sell this to a rehabber?
- Is this a property for a buy and hold investor?
- And much, much more!
Frank Iglesias will be analyzing actual deals at the Atlanta REIA North Meeting on Wednesday, March 18th from 6:30PM to 9:00PM at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, Georgia, so BRING YOUR DEALS and COME JOIN US!

Tue, March 17th @ Noon in Decatur, GA
This Month on Tuesday, March 17th at NOON at 576 John Wesley Dobbs Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30312, the Onsite group will meet at a property where we are doing a new construction. We have seen this project at previous meetings when the house was in different phases of the construction. It is now very close to being finished. Sheetrock is done, doors, tile and trim are being installed. Join us Tuesday to see the amazing progress since we last met there two months ago. The project is in the Old Fourth Ward, which is a neighborhood that has suddenly become hot because of the proximity to the Beltline and the Ponce City Market development in the historic Sears building. Don’t miss this meeting that should prove to be very informative on some new topics we haven’t addressed before!
The Onsite Renovation Group, led by Aaron McGinnis of Craftbuilt Properties, is an educational and networking group that focuses on the acquisition, renovation and retail resale (fix and flip) of single family residential homes inside the I-285 perimeter and the in-town neighborhoods. The purpose of this group is to allow both new and experienced rehabbers and investors to meet, network and share knowledge and experience with “hands on” access to real property. The Onsite Renovation Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at NOON at an active renovation site, build site or rental property which will vary from month to month. There is currently no charge to attend these meeting.

Is It A Deal or No Deal? with Don DeRosa

A Lifeonaire is someone who is full of life. Many people equate living life to the fullest with their financial means to do so; they think that having more money will automatically enhance their lives. At the root of a desire for money is actually the desire for what people think money will give them: a greater quality of life. That focus typically results in the opposite of the goal, causing people to funnel their energy into earning more money rather than living an incredible life.
When someone is very “successful” in their career and spending a lot of time making a lot of money, often times they never really get around to experiencing the fullness of life for which they are working so hard. This is evidenced by the broken families, damaged friendships, forgotten hobbies and interests, crumbling marriages and troubled children that result from neglect – all because their primary focus is on being more financially successful.
The first step to becoming a Lifeonaire is to determine what you want your life to look like. (Creating a Lifeonaire vision) Believe it or not, 98% (or more) of people don’t know specifically what they want their lives to look like. Most everyone says they do, but very few people have any amount of specificity to their answer, nor have they taken the time to put it in writing. Instead, what they know is that they don’t like the way it currently is, and they mistakenly believe that more money will be the solution. This first step is critical, since your Lifeonaire vision will become the foundation that subsequent actions will build upon. Read More→
