Monday, February 8th at 6PM
Hudson Grille, 6317 Roswell Rd, Sandy Springs
The “Let’s Make A Deal” group is a subgroup of the Atlanta REIA led by Lynn Overall and Don DeRosa that now meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, GA. The focus of the group is to take new investors through the entire process of repurposing distressed home. Each home is purchased by the group and is completed as a Joint Venture. An experienced rehab investor then leads the group through the rehab process. Risk of loss is mitigated through the use of a consistent system for rehabbing homes, and through the use of experienced contractors. Our goal is to purchase a new property at each of our meetings.
During the meeting, we will identify a property, hard or private money lender, and a contractor. We will finance the deal using a participating money lender, all of whom attend the meetings. Do not leave your checkbooks at home because we buy properties at each meeting.
The sponsors of the “Let’s Make A Deal” group have successfully repurposed homes in California, Texas, Georgia, and Florida. If you are a new investor looking to be a participant in a home rehab project, then this is definitely the group for you. Please keep in mind that everyone who attends “Let’s Make A Deal” is required to participate. The minimum size of the investment will be determined by the purchase price of the home presented at the meeting.
Come on out and check out the meeting. We would love to have you join our team! We are looking forward to learning and earning with you!

It’s a proven fact that real estate has created more millionaires than any other investment in history, so what’s stopping you from being the next real estate multi-millionaire?
Do any of these obstacles apply to you? If so, you must attend my upcoming Marketing Madness Workshop on Saturday, February 20th from 9AM to 5PM at *Keller Williams, 200 Glenridge Point Pkwy, Ste 100, Atlanta, GA. During this full day event, I am going to personally help you overcome each and every one of the obstacles that may be stopping you from bringing home some really big checks in a very short period of time with little or no cash, credit, experience or risk required on your part.
Whether you know it or not, as real estate investors, we are all in the “marketing” business. Yes, “real estate” is our product and “solutions” is the service we provide, but we are in the marketing business. You must learn how to be a great marketer to be able to find great deals no one else can and be able to attract cash buyers so you can close within days.
When you run your real estate investment business properly, you will get paid within days not weeks or months, just like most successful wholesalers do. Of course this is easier said than done, right? Well, it is that easy when you know what to do, how to do it, when to do it and when you have the right resources available to you.
Do you have all the leads you are looking for? Do you have enough deals on hand to wholesale at least one deal a day? Do you have all the cash buyers you need to sell those hot deals to within hours of finding them? If the answer is “No” to any of these questions, then you really need to attend my upcoming training event!
At the training you will learn:
- 7 Ways To Find 7 Great Deals In 7 Days
- Direct Mail Marketing
- Text Marketing
- Call Broadcasting
- 12 Ways To Find Cash Buyers with Little or No Marketing Expense
- And Much, Much More!
If you have a phone a computer and can make time, I can show you how to be a “Marketing Master” and find all the deals others are looking for and cannot find.
At this event I will teach you many of the marketing strategies that myself and other highly successful real estate investors and marketers use to promote their business and generate all the motivated buyer and seller leads they can handle. I will also show you many of my wholesaling techniques that are simple, fun, fast and easy to implement so you can start bringing in big paychecks in 30 days or less.
So what are you waiting for? Will you be the next real estate millionaire? It is up to you. Success starts with taking action, one step at a time. So don’t let anything stand in your way. Clear your schedule, forget the past and come join me at the workshop so I can help you become a Marketing & Wholesaling Machine! See you at the event!
PLEASE NOTE: Workshop date, time and location are subject to change. Workshop prices will increase to $59.95/person for Gold Members, $89.95/person for Silver Members and $129.95/person for Non-Members after early registration expires.
