How to Make Impossible Deals Possible & Profitable
with Bill Cook

Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge. This month,
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $20 or Pay $25 at the Door.

Bill CookIf you’d like to turn all your “impossible” leads into “possible” and “profitable” deals, make sure that you don’t miss the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on Monday, September 10th from 5PM-9PM at 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA with local real estate investing expert, Bill Cook!

We’re continually told that to reach our full potential as real estate investors, we must work outside the box. At the beginning of Bill’s discussion, he’ll explain why this advice is wrong. It’s not about working outside some box that counts. To reach our full potential, we must realize there is no box!

To be a successful real estate investor, consider this: The job of a real estate investor is not to buy, sell or rent houses. Our job is to solve people’s real estate problems.

Do you want to achieve financial freedom? Then don’t go out looking for “deals”. Instead, go out looking for problems to solve and people to help. In other words, look for peoples’ uncomfortable circumstances. This one shift in your thinking can completely alter your life’s financial outcome.

Think of it this way: When you go out, are you looking to do FOR people or TO people? You already know that “FOR” attracts and “TO” repels. Each day, are you attracting or repelling business?

To make all deals possible, you only need to do five things:

  1. Get face-to-face with sellers
  2. Be curious and ask questions – a LOT of questions!
  3. Draw up a T-bar
  4. Understand a teeter-totter offer
  5. Put your offer in writing

At the Atlanta REIA meeting, as we talk about creative deal structuring, you’ll walk away with a clearer understanding of these five most-important things.

You’ll also see examples of a number of our creatively constructed and funded real-world deals. In addition, we‘ll answer these four deal-making questions:

  1. How was it found?
  2. How was it structured?
  3. How was it funded?
  4. And once bought, what did we do with it?

Finally, here are a number of questions we promise to answer:

  • What’s the fastest, cheapest, most effective way to get face-to-face with homeowners and sellers?
  • What is the best way to learn how to creatively construct and fund a deal?
  • What type of deal is the safest to do, and still offers the highest yields?
  • What is the best way to get owner financing or find private money lenders?
  • When a seller calls, what two questions should you ask?
  • What’s the best way to determine a property’s value?
  • What’s the most you should pay for a property? (This answer will floor you!)
  • When an investor is sinking, what two questions do I ask to determine the cause?
  • Is it possible to make five written offers each day?
  • What needs to be your daily goal?
  • What does it really take to succeed at real estate investing?

If you’ve been wanting to turn all your impossible trash leads into profitable cash deals, join us at Atlanta REIA on Monday, September 10th to find out more! Take Action and RSVP Now! We look forward to seeing you at this month’s main meeting!

Sat, September 29th in Atlanta, GA
SOLD OUT – SOLD OUT – SOLD OUT
Door Knocking Field Trip
A Full Day Field Trip with Bill Cook
Saturday, Sept 29th from 8:30AM-6PM
CHANGE OF VENUE
Meet at Dunkin Donuts, 5558 Peachtree Industrial Blvd, Chamblee, GA

Bill CookWhen it comes to learning about real estate investing, we can all agree that getting face-to-face with sellers is where the rubber meets the road. No classroom training or roll playing takes the place of sitting at a seller’s kitchen table, asking the hard questions, creatively structuring a win-win deal, and memorializing that agreement in a written offer. NOTHING!

If you want to SEE the fastest, cheapest, most effective way to get face-to-face with motivated sellers, then join me, Bill Cook, for a day full of door knocking with real sellers on Saturday, September 29th from 8:30 AM – 6:00 PM at Dunkin Donuts, 5558 Peachtree Industrial Blvd, Chamblee, GA. We’ll spend the day out talking to sellers and constructing win-win deals at their kitchen tables.

Door Knocking Field TripWhat’s the fastest, cheapest, most effective way to get face-to-face with motivated sellers? When you see a For Sale sign in a seller’s yard, get out of your car and knock on the seller’s door. It’s as simple as that!

I know what you’re thinking: The seller will slam the door in my face; the seller will yell at me; the seller will tell me to get lost or call the cops!

I know something else, too: You say this having never spent a single day out knocking on homeowners’ doors – especially out knocking doors with someone who has done it for nearly 40 years!

Some of the Questions I’ll Answer While We’re Out Door Knocking:

  • Which homes should you go to?
  • How and where should you stand when at the seller’s door?
  • What should you carry with you?
  • What do you say when the seller answers the door?
  • What do you do if no one is home?
  • Why will 8 out of 10 sellers invite you in?
  • What are the best types of neighborhoods to work?
  • What do you do after the seller invites you in?
  • How do you get to the seller’s kitchen table and why it’s THE place to be?
  • What are the MOST important questions to ask a seller?
  • How do you construct a win-win offer?
  • What do you do if the house is vacant or bank owned?

Door Knocking Field TripOn Saturday, September 29th, 2018 at 8:30 AM, I’ll be taking a select group of real estate investors out door knocking. We’ll be meeting in at McDonald’s, 5493 Peachtree Industrial Blvd, Chamblee, GA at 8:30 AM SHARP for check in and breakfast.

Just think, you have the opportunity to spend the day out meeting with sellers in the real world with someone who has made his living knocking on homeowners’ doors for more nearly 40 years!

I promise you’ll come away with some really great stories, plus a couple of big Ah-Hah moments that can dramatically change the course of your real estate investing life! Register Now!

Mountain REIA
Making The Impossible Deals, Profitable!
October 3rd @ 6:30PM,
Golden Corral Cumming,
2025 Market Pl Blvd, Cumming, GA

$2 Charge for ALL Attendees.

Bill CookDid you know that every month, within 5 miles of your home, there’s a $15,000 net-profit deal waiting to be had? The hard part is finding it, and then knowing how to creatively structure it into a big-profit deal. There won’t be a large sign in the yard that reads: Stop Here – $15,000 Deal Inside! A common mistake made by many would-be real estate investors is to run a We Buy Houses ad, then sit back and wait for the phone to ring. A truth: The phone rarely rings! Because of this, most new investors go out of business long before they find their first deal!

To succeed at real estate investing, you must get face-to-face with sellers on a regular basis. The fastest, cheapest and most effective way to accomplish this all-important task is to simply knock on sellers’ doors and ask why they’re selling.

In addition to door-knocking, you must continually learn creative deal structuring techniques from experienced real estate investors. The best creative deal structurer I know is Pete Fortunato. With nearly 50 years of deal-making experience under his belt, he’s the master! If you want to learn how to make impossible deals possible, do what we do: hang out with been-there-and-done-that investors. They know stuff! You will find these been-there-done-that experienced investors at your local REIA functions.

RSVP Now and join us for Mountain REIA at 6:30pm on Tuesday, October 3rd at The Golden Corral in Cumming at 2025 Market Place Blvd. in Cumming. Come join us for this fun, informative event. See Y’all There!

Everyone can attend for $2.00. Show up at 6:30 PM to eat and network before the meeting officially starts at 7:00 PM. Buying your own meal is optional but highly recommended and greatly appreciated since Golden Corral allows us to use their meeting room.

There will be lots of learning and lots of networking. Bring
your deals and your haves, wants and needs to the event.

& Vendor Trade Show
Sept 11th @ Crowne Plaza Ravinia Dunwoody
Special Meeting Date Due to Labor Day Holiday
What You Must Know About Real Estate Investing Success
From TWO Superstar Real Estate Investors
Special Guests,
Don DeRosa & Bill Cook

Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge. This month,
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $20 or Pay $25 at the Door.

Don DeRosaDon DeRosa and Bill Cook are both successful, been-there-and-done-that investors today. Each has been investing since the mid 1990’s. They have conducted seperate successful REIA’s. They have the same teachers that they have learned from. There is little in real estate that they have not come across. They are both National Speakers and teachers. Combined, they have more than 40 years of creative deal-making experience. Both gentlemen are highly sought-after for their advice and wisdom to help other investors find their success.

Bill CookNow, imagine what they were like when they were baby real estate investors. What did Bill and Don know about real estate investing, creative funding and entities? As they are going to demonstrate at Atlanta REIA’s Main Monthly Event on Monday, September 11th starting at 5PM at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia located at 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Rd, Atlanta, GA, they didn’t know much about real estate then. You will find it hard to believe some of the things they did and even what they didn’t do. It will shock and surprise you!

How did Don and Bill survive the long, hard hours, the frustrations, the failures, and the difficulties. What kept them going when they hit numberous brick walls? Yes, they experienced trials, tribulations just like you. They also discovered some secret ingredients along the way to begin to experience success.

A common mistake many real estate investors make is comparing their know how to that of someone who’s been investing for decades, someone who has done hundreds of deals and made thousands of written offers.

RSVP on Facebook

How did Bill and Don move from basic, bare-bone deals, to deals full of imagination and creativity – deals that don’t involve institutional funding? What did they do that was game-changing? Make the decision NOW to attend our September 11th event and find the answers you seek.

Here are more items you will learn from this One-Of-A-Kind Event:

  • You’ll see one of Bill and Don’s most recent deals – how it was found, constructed, funded and what they did with it.
  • Next, you’ll see one of the first deals Don and Bill did back in the 90’s. Their lack of creativity will astound you!
  • What steps did Don and Bill take to prevent their failure?
  • What are the top 10 reasons 90% of would-be investors fail?
  • What are the best ways for you to learn about real estate investing?
  • What are the top 10 things Bill and Don did that allowed them to achieve financial freedom and how you can do that too?

Listen to me, There is no magic pill that will turn you into an instant real estate sage. We all learn in small, individual layers – like layers of a cake. This is one of the reasons to come to events like this one. To lean on each other and find strength, and listen to knowledge being passed on to you from the now experienced investors. Get excited and RSVP NOW!

Is It a Deal or No Deal?
Sept. 11th Meeting Before the Meeting
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaJoin Don DeRosa at the High Tech Home Buying Creative Deal Structuring Subgroup on Monday, September 11th from 5PM to 6PM at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting at Crown Plaza Ravinia where he will be teaching about “Doing Your Due Diligence!”

When you come across a lead, do you know how to look at the information, analyze it and determine what to do with it? Do you know if it is a “Deal or No Deal”? If the answer is “No” then you should definitely attend this meeting.

The biggest reason most investors lose deals is because they don’t know how to gather the right information and then analyze it so they can make money. There is nothing worse than losing a deal because you didn’t know your numbers.

Would you like to learn multiple ways to structure every deal you are considering buying? This is exactly what Don DeRosa will teach you. Come learn how to be a transaction engineer.

At this meeting you will learn about…

  • How to become a transaction engineer
  • How to Determining Values
  • How to find comparable
  • How to decide what comparable to use
  • How to be a problem solver to create win-win deals for everyone
  • How to take a lead and come up with multiple ways to structure the deal

Learn the Quickest, Easiest & Most Affordable Way To Get In Front Of Sellers
Watch the “BIG O” Webinar Replay
with Bill Cook

Bill CookHere’s the big picture: You must let everyone know who you are and what you do. The goal is to have all the folks in your area call you if they are considering selling their property. Your next task is to separate the folks who WANT to sell from the folks who NEED to sell. And finally, when you find a motivated seller, you must be able to creatively structure a win-win deal, as well as be willing to pull the trigger quickly – ’cause great deals don’t hang around long!

By far, the MOST effective thing we do to accomplish the above goals is knocking on sellers’ doors and asking Pete Fortunato’s famous question: “Why are you selling such a nice house like this?” Nothing, nothing, nothing works better than knocking on sellers’ doors!

I know that, in this day of iPads, websites and high-tech gadgetry, many will disagree with me. That’s fine. But realize that, for the most part, the ones who disagree with me have NEVER gone out knocking on sellers’ doors. Think about it: What’s the point of websites, direct mail campaigns, squeeze pages, dialing for dollars, etc.? Isn’t it to get you face-to-face with a seller?

Beginning Investors Group Online (The BIG O)If you want to learn more about how to get face-time with 8 out of every 10 sellers you meet, be sure to watch this Webinar Replay we recorded live with Bill Cook on May 25, 2016 at the Beginning Investors Group Online where he taught us the “Quickest, Easiest & Most Affordable Way To Get In Front Of Sellers!” Watch the Webinar Replay Now!

Bill CookThis month at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG), we are excited to have our good friend and local real estate investing expert, Bill Cook, as our special guest speaker. Bill is going to share with us the fundamentals of how to get started in real estate. The meeting will take place on Monday, May 18th at 6:30PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs.

Are you just starting out in real estate and don’t know what to do first? Have you done real estate deals before but maybe took a break for a while and are just stepping back into the game? Has your head been spinning with trying to figure out where to get started? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, then you NEED to be at this month’s BIG meeting to learn from an expert how to get started.

Bill will be teaching…

  • What to do first to get started investing
  • What to focus on when starting up your business
  • How to find sellers
  • How to put houses under contract
  • How to get contracted houses sold or rented
  • And much, much, more!

Door Knocking Field Trip with Bill CookBill Cook is regarded as one of the most experienced real estate investors in the country. Bill and his wife, Kim, have been investing in real estate since 1995. Together, they have accumulated a portfolio that includes many single-family homes, mobile homes, and a small mobile home park. Since 1997, Bill and Kim have taught people how to successfully invest in real estate and continue doing so each and every day.

This will be a great meeting for learning where to get started with your real estate investing career. Come check it out for lots of learning and networking to meet other like-minded individuals. It will be a great time. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Sat, June 28 @ 8:15 AM – Smyrna, GA
Join us on June 28th for a REAL, LIVE, HANDS-ON…
Door Knocking Field Trip
With Bill Cook

Do you want to SEE the fastest, cheapest, most effective way to get face-to-face with motivated sellers?

Bill CookThen join me, Bill Cook, for a day full of door knocking with real sellers on Saturday, June 28th from 8:15 AM – 3:45 PM. We’ll spend the day out talking to sellers and constructing win-win deals at their kitchen tables.

What’s the fastest, cheapest, most effective way to get face-to-face with motivated sellers? When you see a For Sale sign in a seller’s yard, get out of your car and knock on the seller’s door. It’s as simple as that!

I know what you’re thinking: The seller will slam the door in my face; the seller will yell at me; the seller will tell me to get lost.

I know something else, too: You say this having never spent a single day out knocking on homeowners’ doors – especially out knocking doors with someone who has done it for more than 35 years!

Register Now!

Some of the Questions I’ll Answer While We’re Out Door Knocking:

  • Which homes should you go to?
  • How and where should you stand when at the seller’s door?
  • What should you carry with you?
  • What do you say when the seller answers the door?
  • What do you do if no one is home?
  • Why will 8 out of 10 sellers invite you in?
  • What are the best types of neighborhoods to work?
  • What do you do after the seller invites you in?
  • How do you get to the seller’s kitchen table and why it’s THE place to be?
  • What are the MOST important questions to ask a seller?
  • How do you construct a win-win offer?
  • What do you do if the house is vacant or bank owned?

On Saturday, June 28th, 2014 at 8:15 AM, I’ll be taking a select group of real estate investors out door knocking. We’ll be meeting in at the Home Depot parking lot located at 1200 East-West Connector, Austell GA beside the Garden Section facing Floyd Rd at 8:15 AM SHARP.

Just think, you have the opportunity to spend the day out meeting with sellers in the real world with someone who has made his living knocking on homeowners’ doors for more than 35 years!

Register Now!

I promise you’ll come away with some really great stories, plus a couple of big Ah-Hah moments that can dramatically change the course of your real estate investing life!

Peter Fortunato, Dyches Boddiford, & Bill Cook present

Seats are limited. REGISTER NOW!

Pete Fortunato, Dyches Boddiford and Bill CookPete Fortunato, Dyches Boddiford and Bill Cook, who combined have nearly 100 years of Creative Real Estate Investing experience, will present their full-day, one-of-a-kind What Box? – The Seminar

THE STORY:

This nothing-like-it-before seminar was brought to life with a phone call. Bill called Pete with a question about a complicated deal he was working on. A few days later, after getting it closed, Bill sent Pete a nice letter thanking him for his terrific thinking-outside-the-box advice. Pete replied with a simple, two-word email. It read: What Box? It was classic Pete!

THE LESSON:

All deals are possible There Is No Box!

As an investor, what is your most valuable tool? Imagination! And imagination will die if kept in a box – if you’ve been in a government building, then you know what we mean. To thrive, your imagination must be allowed to run free so it can create new ways of structuring win-win deals.

A lesson to remember: Deals aren’t found. Opportunities are found; deals are structured!

One of the biggest problems investors face is trying to put together a deal using boilerplate thinking and boilerplate documents. Sadly – for most investors – if the square peg doesn’t fit in the round hole, they give up on the deal. Their inside-the-box thinking keeps them from achieving the huge level of success that’s right at their fingertips…if only they would…..

What Box? – The Seminar is about helping you see different ways a deal can be creatively constructed without using institutional financing. It’s about you realizing that there is no box!

Why attend this seminar? Combined, Pete, Dyches and Bill, have been investing in real estate for nearly 100 years – that’s a ton of real-world experience! If you want to learn how to do your deals better, if you want to be able to make the impossible deals possible, then this is your gotta-be-there-event!

We’re looking for serious real estate investors who are ready to move to the next level – who want to see what’s behind the curtain. Is this YOU? We only have 80 seats. When they’re gone, they’re gone…and they’ll be gone quickly! Read More→
