Only Two Spots Left! RSVP Before They’re Gone!

Don DeRosaAre you tired of waiting for deals to fall in your lap? When you drive neighborhoods looking for properties, do you know what to look for? Does the thought of talking with Sellers face-to-face make you nervous? Do you avoid knocking on doors because you’re afraid you don’t know what to say when someone comes to the door?

These are all very common fears that many beginning investors face when seeking out their first few deals. Learning how to deal with these issues early on can make the difference between your success and failure.

Dustin GriffinIf you would like to overcome common challenges such as these, please be sure to join Don DeRosa and Dustin Griffin for this full day workshop & field trip where you will learn in the class and in the field…

  • What things you must have with you at all times
  • What to look for when out and about looking for opportunities
  • How to track down and find the owners of vacant properties
  • How to put a follow up system in place to track every prospect

Door Knocking & Talking with Sellers Face to Face

  • How to overcome your fear of talking to sellers
  • What scripts to use for practicing talking to sellers
  • How to ensure you get invited in the house
  • What marketing material you need to have with you
  • How to handle objections without knowing all the answers
  • What marketing to leave behind if the owner isn’t home
  • All this and more…

Rehab Bus TourFor the field trip, you will be paired up with another classmate and literally go into the field and drive for dollars, door knock and talk to live sellers as well as seeking out and finding vacant properties. If you follow our instructions, you will likely finish the day with several very hot leads.

If talking with sellers is a challenge for you, then you DO NOT want to miss out on this BRAND-NEW TRAINING EVENT we created just for YOU!

There will be lots of hands-on practical applications in this event unlike anything you’ve probably ever seen before. We will immerse you in the real estate investor experience so that you will quickly learn the skills you need to give you the confidence to talk with Sellers like a seasoned PRO.

Partnerships

Ramon TookesJoin us at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on Monday, February 11th from 5PM-9PM at 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA where Ramon Tookes will be discussing the The Power of Partnerships.

For investors with or without the cash and time to do real estate investing, going it alone or with a partner can be very appealing. However there are definitely some “pros” than “cons” with creating partnerships. Creating a partnership or teams are big steps, but there are proven reasons of effectiveness that are associated with why even the biggest and wealthiest family offices, funds, and individual billionaires choose to partner up in one way or another.

Watch Video from Ramon Tookes!

Ramon will teach on some real-life examples of successful partnership strategies, how teams can successfully work together, and offer sound advice on how to avoid problems. Ultimately, partnerships are no-brainers as they afford you leverage and allow you to scale your business!

  • Partnering with lenders for leverage and purchasing power
  • Partnering with other investors on a joint venture – everyone brings something to the table
  • Partnering with a REALTOR who understands investor needs
  • Partnering with various vendors for deep discounts on supplies, etc
  • Answers to your questions and much more!

It’s often tough to succeed in this business alone! Come join us on Monday, February 11th at Atlanta REIA with Ramon Tookes and learn how partnerships change your business! RSVP NOW & DON’T MISS IT!

The High Tech Home Buyers Creative Deal Makers Subgroup
Feb 11th Meeting Before the Meeting
20 MAGIC Questions to Ask the Seller
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaJoin Don DeRosa this month at the High Tech Home Buying Creative Deal Structuring Subgroup (AKA the “Meeting Before the Meeting”) as he discusses how to talk to sellers and get the information you need to make win-win offers.

If you are new, or even old for that matter, have you ever wondered what is the best way to approach a seller? Talking to sellers can be the single most intimidating task you can do when learning how to be a real estate investor. Believe me, I’ve been there, but If you want to be a creative real estate investor then you must master the art of asking “The 20 Questions.”

To make the right offer for your motivated seller it starts with understanding their problem first. Understanding their problem allows you to then craft a perfect solution for them. A perfect solution that gets them to say “Yes” almost every time.

So where do we start? We start by asking the RIGHT questions. We call these the MAGIC 20 questions. These questions will dig deep at the root of the seller’s problems and provide you with proper accurate information so you can formulate the ideal offer for your seller.

At this month’s meeting before the meeting I will cover all the questions you need to ask.
We will cover:

  • What questions are important
  • What questions are vital
  • What are the 6 absolute question you must get answered on every deal
  • What script to follow to ask these question
  • How to get the seller to answer even the most personal questions with ease
  • And then most importantly, what do we do with the answers…

After you are finished with this session you will be armed and ready to tackle any seller in any situation. You will be armed and dangerous and ready to formulate killer offers to your sellers. You don’t want to miss this session.

Randy Hughes

Posted on February 1, 2019 by

Randy HughesRandy Hughes, aka Mr. Land Trust, started life out on the wrong side of the railroad tracks. His father was an alcoholic and his mother was left to raise four children on a clerk’s wages. None of his relatives owned their own business … everyone worked for wages.

His father charged the weekly groceries so that the family would have food on the table. There was no stable income for any future education much less the current needs of the family.

No intellectual or financial direction was taught in his schools or church.  No blood relative had anything to offer other than “working for the man” at an hourly wage. Bank savings and financial security was what only the rich had. He was doomed for financial failure and unhappiness for the rest of his life.

Randy knew that there MUST be a better way to live. He decided to break the cycle of poverty in his family genes. Education came first. Randy graduated from Eastern Illinois University and began buying single family homes for rental while in college. After college, the Randy tried many different types of businesses, but always came back to the Single Family Home as the IDEAL investment. Since purchasing his first rental house in 1969, Randy hasn’t looked back!  Read More→

This month’s meeting will be held at newly completed rehab project located at 498 Oak Dr SE, Atlanta, GA being managed by Maria Rosenswike who is an active rehabber and frequent attendee at our Onsite Renovation Group.

Onsite PropertyThis was 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1,242 sqft home that was built in 1962. The house was in pretty good shape and had been updated, but not to today’s standards. And the floor plan was not laid out very well and the ceiling was popcorn. It had a tiny front porch, no deck and a chain link fence.

Needless to say, Maria didn’t like any of this, so she renovated the entire house. She revised the floor plan in the master and added high ceilings. She refinished the existing hardwoods. She updated the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, lighting and appliances. She updated the exterior, added a new front porch, deck, fencing and driveway. Come join us and see the finished project and see how she did it!

Here Maria’s agents description of the home… “Gorgeous renovated bunglalow! This stunning corner property has top-notch upgrades throughout and tons of character. Lemonade front porch with quaint swing, open concept living, dining and kitchen w/ hardwood floors. Chef’s kitchen with large center island, wine fridge, stainless appliances, beautiful granite and backsplash, perfect for entertaining! The master wing features walk-in closet & en suite bathroom with dual vanity, jacuzzi tub and amazing shower. Alarm system already installed. Enormous private fenced backyard, with deck and fire pit. This home has it all. Perfect addition to investors portfolio.”

Dustin GriffinThe Atlanta SHARK TANK meets on the 1st Monday of each month from 6PM to 9PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd NE, Sandy Springs, GA (map) just outside the Perimeter. Shark Tank is currently FREE for Atlanta REIA Members and Guests and is Hosted by Dustin Griffin.

WHOLESALERS, bring your deals and pitch them to the Sharks and our to attendees who are ready to put your deals under contract on the spot! Click here for more information on How to Submit Your Deals to the Sharks.

We can only pitch a limited number of deals to the Sharks, so the deals that don’t get pitched to the Sharks can be pitched during the “Rapid Fire, Deal Pitch Fest” after the conclusion of the Shark Tank panel.

Be sure to bring your contracts and plenty of business cards and flyers for our flyer table and enough for anyone who wants one. You can post your properties to our Atlanta Shark Tank Facebook Group and other Facebook Groups as well throughout the month.

INVESTORS, if you’re looking for a deal to purchase to fix and flip or to buy and hold, come prepared to write contracts and put down any necessary earnest money deposits. There will be plenty of deals being pitched to the Sharks and during the “Rapid Fire, Deal Pitch Fest”. If a deal is not already taken, all you have to to is decide if it is a “Deal” or “No Deal” and take action!

VENDORS, Reserve a Vendor Table for as little as $25, come check us out and and come prepared to meet lots of investors who are looking to do business with you. Vendor tables are cocktail tables that are available on a first come, first serve basis. Vendors will be setup in the “Game Room” at the Hudson Grille and be able to do Vendor Commercials in the “Dining Room” during the beginning of the meeting on a first come, first serve basis.
