Posted on November 15, 2010 by

Alan McDonaldAlan McDonald was born in central New Jersey in the early 1970’s, grew up near Charleston SC, moving to Atlanta in 1995. Alan’s interest in entrepreneurship, audio production, and real estate investing began early in his teenage years.

Alan is an avid reader, discovering Robert Kiyosaki’s  series in 2001, and has followed Rich Dad’s teachings ever since.

Alan became involved in Atlanta’s investor community in 2002. Some of his adventures have led him to be a property manager for Metro Management and Investments, a marketing coordinator for a local Domino’s Pizza franchise, and an event planner, performer and talent for Avalanche Entertainment.

Alan is currently building a support and professional network. One of the ways he is doing that is by organizing the Atlanta REIA Cashflow Players Group and Cashflow Game Nights throughout the Atlanta metro area. Alan’s hope is to inspire others to learn about financial literacy. Alan’s driving force is to live by a statement from Zig Ziglar, “help others get what they want, and in turn, you will get what you want”.

Alan is also currently serving as Atlanta REIA’s Volunteer Director of Audio Video Services and helps record and produce the Atlanta REIA’s Haves & Wants Speed Marketing Session at the Main Meeting each month.

Alan is also the host of the new Atlanta REIA Beginning Investors Group (BIG) which is is an educational and networking special interest group for new investors who are just getting started in real estate investing as well as “new again” real estate investors who’ve taken a few years off and are looking to start investing again..

Is It A Deal or No Deal? with Don DeRosa

With St. Patrick’s Day upon us and lots of symbols in the air about luck, there are some that really do believe that finding a deal is all about luck. Let Don DeRosa show you how to create that “luck” any day of the year. We will have time to examine two leads and determine if they are a deal or a dud. Please bring us leads that you are working on, we will randomly choose them, and let Don show you if there is in fact a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow!

Your Career in
Real Estate Investing

with Kim Cook, Dorsie Boddiford, Leslie Mathis & Regina Sitterley

All Members & Guests Must RSVP Online to Attend
Members Attend for FREE and Guests for $15 Online or Pay $20 at the Door.
Guests can join Atlanta REIA for Only $100/year and Attend for FREE!

Dorsie Boddiford, Kim Cook, Regina Sitterley & Leslie Mathis

As a new real estate investor, you might not realize it yet, but you will go through three distinct stages of your real estate investing career if you stick it out to the very end.

There is the beginner stage when you need cash now like you need oxygen to breath. Next is the intermediate stage when you start to build your cash flow and residual income and really start to crank things up. And finally there is the final stage when you become an “Ender” and are able to retire and comfortably live off your investments. Each of these stages require different amounts of time, energy, resources and education to master.

Join us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, November 17th, at 6:00PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs where you will hear from four dynamic, successful investors in the different stages of their investing career. Dorsie Boddiford, Kim Cook, Regina Sitterley and Leslie Mathis will share with you their history, their goals, and give you insights on how to be successful during each stage. This is your opportunity to hear from investors you don’t normally get to hear from in this format who truly have valuable first hand insights into the different stages of their investing careers. You will be able to ask them questions about the challenges they have faced and have succeeded.

Many new investors may not realize that over the time of their investing life, they will move through various stages of their career. There is the beginning investor (or newbie), the intermediate, and the mature investor. Each of these stages require different mindsets and goals.

Getting Deals Done Without Banks
with Special Guest, Bill Ham

All Members & Guests Must RSVP Online to Attend
Members Attend for FREE and Guests for $15 Online or Pay $20 at the Door.
Guests can Join Atlanta REIA for Only $100/year and Attend for FREE!

Bill HamCome join us at BIG on Monday, February 17th at 6:00PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, where former corporate pilot and regular contributor to Atlanta REIA’s Profit Newsletter, Bill Ham, will show you how to get your first deal (and lots more) without having to qualify for a loan from a bank. He will teach you how to build a portfolio of cash flowing properties even if you have bad credit, no credit or you have never even done a deal.

RSVP Now!

Bill has been investing with real estate for eight years now. He started with one duplex and no cash. Bill then created a portfolio of hundreds units from single family deals up to large commercial apartment complexes and everything in between. To this day, Bill has never walked into a bank and qualified for a loan, put money down, and purchased a real estate investment. He has lots of bank loans, but all of them came from refinancing after taking control of the property with some form of creative financing.

“I didn’t start with a ton of cash. I was twenty-eight years old when I quit my career-building job as a corporate pilot. I didn’t have a life savings. I didn’t have lots of connections from the business world. I wasn’t able to go to all of my wealthy investors and have them fund my deals. I survived by perfecting the art of creative financing, by mastering the art of Creative Financing. Now I have seven employees, my own management company, and hundreds of units.I survived because the art of helping people solve their problems is a very lucrative business. This is the core of what I teach. In all my material, that is the one concept I will repeat over and over”!

You will learn:

  • Techniques to create single or multi-family portfolios without using banks
  • Learn what Lease Options and Debt Partners are and how they are used in creative financing.
  • What Master Lease Options are(MLO).
  • How and When to use Seller Financing
  • How To Negotiate Creatively
  • And much, much more…

Atlanta REIA members can attend at NO CHARGE. Non-Members can register online for $15 or if you register online or $20 at the door. RSVP Now and come learn how to buy houses without using banks! Seating is limited.
