Machelle RedmondWe are excited to announce that Managing Partner of the Redmond Law Group, Machelle Redmond Esq., will be our special guest speaker this month at the Mountain REIA monthly meeting. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 3rd at 6:30PM at the Golden Corral located at 2025 Market Place Blvd, Cumming, GA. During this presentation, Machelle will be giving us a briefing on the Dodd-Frank Act and how it applies to real estate investing.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Comprehensive Protection Act, or Dodd-Frank Act, Represents the most comprehensive financial regulatory reform measures taken since the great depression.

Whether you are a Wholesaler, a Flipper, a Buy and Hold Investor, a Lender or a consumer, Dodd- Frank will impact your real estate practices. Although the act is designed to “protect homeowners,” it will affect us all. Much about the Act is still not clear and the policies, etc. are still being formulated. As a result, there is much confusion and uncertainty within the investment community.

Machelle L. Redmond, Managing Partner of the Redmond Law Group, has been a resident of Atlanta since 1984. Ms. Redmond has practiced exclusively in the areas of real estate and business since 1998 and has been a featured speaker for numerous continuing education seminars for realtors, lenders and attorneys and has published several articles on real estate related matters for trade magazines and other publications.

In 2008, Machelle Redmond founded the Redmond Real Estate Institute, a non-profit organization providing continuing education courses to Realtors® and promoting real estate education within the community.

Dorsie BoddifordAtlanta REIA is excited to announce that Dorsie Boddiford will be the special guest speaker at our Main Monthly Meeting on Monday, November 2nd at 5PM. The meeting will take place at Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA. Dorsie will be discussing her career as a very successful, young real estate investor and how she keeps more money in her pocket with tax saving strategies.

Here’s what Dorsie says about her presentation…

“It’s a great feeling to get that big check after flipping and selling a property, but it always seems like Uncle Sam gets the better end of the deal. And I cringe this time every year as I pay my property taxes that seem to always be on the rise, no matter what. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind paying my fair share but I was always taught to pay my fair share and not a penny more.

Successful, experienced real estate investors have the structure and systems in place to minimize their taxes. Are you following their examples? These investors structure their deals so that they can maximize their profit and minimize their costs. Their businesses are also set up with specific entities so that they can gain maximum tax benefits. Even if you are a beginner investor, a working knowledge of tax-saving strategies will benefit you in your day-to-day investments.”

Some of the topics Dorsie will discuss include:

  • Purposeful business planning: when its best to invest personally, in a Corporation, or in an LLC
  • Investing using tax-deferred and tax-free retirement accounts, such as the Roth component of the Solo 401k (my favorite!)
  • How to keep your property taxes low(er)
  • Structuring deals for minimum tax hit and maximum profit
  • Other tax strategies such as 1031 Exchanges and Section 121 sales

“Come see some real life examples of how I reduce my taxes with purposeful business planning and strategic deal structuring!”

About Dorsie Boddiford

Dorsie BoddifordDorsie Boddiford is a 27 year old, full-time real estate investor. Upon graduating from Georgia Tech with a degree in Building Construction, she took the risk to become a full-time, real estate investing entrepreneur and purchased her first house. She has built a business out of flipping houses while striving towards financial freedom with investments. Her deals include purchases at foreclosure auctions and tax deed sales, negotiations for owner-financing, deals through door knocking and mail outs, as well as deals with other investors through wrap mortgages, hard money loans, and equity participation.

Dorsie’s investments also include a focus on wealth building through retirement accounts and she recently released her book “The Solo 401k: The Entrepreneur’s Guide to a Powerful Pension Plan” that she co-wrote with her father, Dyches Boddiford. Becoming an active investor was no easy task, but Dorsie has no regrets with her real estate career. She enjoys helping and encouraging other new investors who are eager to begin their journey out of the rat race. Her early successes have made her appreciate the power of working for herself.


Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn from a successful, young real estate investor who is making deals happen and keeping more of her hard earned money by legally reducing her tax burden. All this is happening at the Atlanta REIA main meeting on Monday, November 2nd at 5PM at Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA.

As always, Atlanta REIA Members can attend the event at no charge and Non-Members can Register Online for $20 or pay $25.00 at the door. Be sure to bring your business cards and flyers and join us for an evening of real estate deals, vendors, networking, education and fun! See you there!

Bill CookAt October’s Wild West Event, we’re hosting special guest and friend Bill Cook. Bill Is an “old, seasoned investor” (his words, not mine!) who has learned and put into practice sound business and investing principles over the years. Doing so has allowed him and his wife Kim to now lead a lifestyle that few achieve. The meeting will take place on Monday, October 26th at 6:30PM at the Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta.

Click Here to Watch a Video of Bill Talking About Monday’s Meeting!

If you haven’t seen Bill speak, you’re in for a real treat! This man is as real and down to earth as it gets. You’ll find his style refreshing, and you’ll have a great time with us (Bill is quite the comedian-just ask him!). We’ll discuss the things you need to know – and do – if your goal is to prosper as a real estate investor. We won’t talk about the obvious things. Rather, we’ll discuss the things few investors have experience with – and fewer still ever talk about in public.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How does Bill – being an old, seasoned investor – quickly tell whether the deal is good or not? How does Bill know what he’s looking at? And if Bill decided to take the deal down, how does he get it funded fast?
  • What things do you need to have in place before you up your game and become a full-time real estate investor? Bill did a LOT of legwork in 1997 before going full-time on January 1, 1998. You’ll learn what Bill did to insure success.
  • The goal is to get mailbox money and achieve financial freedom. But how do you accomplish this if you HATE rental property and DESPISE tenants? It’s easier to do than you think. It just requires you to structure your deals differently.
  • If you’ve done ten or more deals, then you’re an experienced investor. That said, are you still structuring your deals the same way you did when you were new? Want to see how you should be constructing your deals in order to reduce the tax bite and increase profit margins?
  • If you think you may want to partner on a deal, what do you look for in a partner? And what should your partner look for in you?
  • If you decide you need a mentor, what are the critical things you need from that mentor? What important questions do you need answered before picking a mentor?
  • Record keeping. Boring right? But boy is it ever important. Want to see how an old, seasoned investor does his record keeping? If you do, you need to be at October’s meeting!

This will be a great evening. We look forward to seeing your smiling face. Please bring family and friends. And remember: We LOVE questions and input – questions and input make us all better, smarter, wiser real estate investors!

AtlantaREIA Members get in FREE, and guests are just $10 at the door. Guests are 2 for 1 admission, this month only!

Attention North Ga. REIA Members! We’d like you to join us, for sure. Bill has lots more to share with you, and he just couldn’t fit it all in to his meeting on Oct. 8th. Come join us to hear more – for October’s meeting, your admission is FREE! (But Bill’s not stripping for us this time)

Join us Monday, October 26 at 6:30pm at The Cherokee Cattle Company at 2710 Canton Rd. in Marietta. Bring your business cards and your haves and wants-and be ready to have a great time! See you there, pardner!

5 Days & 4 Nights in CancunWIN A FREE CARIBBEAN VACATION FOR TWO!: All participants who attend the Atlanta REIA West Meeting will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a *FREE Caribbean Vacation for TWO and other great door prizes! *You must be present at the meeting to win.

  3. Seller Carry Back
  4. Subject-To
  5. Seller Second

At this workshop you will learn 12 ways to get the financing done!!!!

This class is for broke people, buyers and sellers who want to make GOOD decisions while structuring a deal! Do you have properties you are looking to maximize the profit and lower the risk while getting rid of the tenant mentally?

  • Learn the pitfalls of each technique so you understand when to stand your ground!
  • Learn how to determine if NO deal structuring will make the deal work!
  • Learn where you can be flexible without breaking your bank account!
  • Learn how to decrease your risk while increasing your profit!

Professional investors realize that with the correct skills, tools and techniques, you can easily and effectively reach your goals for 2015 and beyond!

He will cover how to get things set up so you can get started the right way with the proper systems in place.

At the end of this meeting, you will be much less intimidated about the idea of starting your multifamily real estate investing business because you will have the knowledge and the tools available to you to set yourself up for success.

Bill Ham has been investing in multifamily real estate for over 10 years. He has created a portfolio of nearly 400 units in Macon, GA. His entire real estate investing portfolio was created using creative and seller financing methods. Bill definitely knows what it takes to run a successful multifamily real estate investing business.

Let's Make A DealThe “Let’s Make A Deal” group is a subgroup of the Atlanta REIA led by Lynn Overall 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!

Russ HinerOur next All Inclusive Marketing (AIM) Group Meeting is Wednesday, October 14th at 7:00PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs.

Let me ask you a couple of questions:

  • How many leads are you getting a month or a week?
  • Of those leads, what is your closing ration?
  • How many of them do you end up buying?
  • Are you using creative financing to close a high number of those leads?
  • Are you turning most of those leads into profitable deals?

If the answer is NO to any of the last two questions above, this meeting is for you.

If the answer is yes, and you want to improve the number of deals you want to do or just improve the quality of your life, then this meeting is for you, too.

My very close friend, Russ Hiner is going to share a few great ideas and creative methods to do more deal with the existing leads and of course will help you learn where to get tons of new ones as well.

Below are a few things he can share with us:

  • Learning when and where to creatively finance a real estate deal
  • Why is it important to know more than one way to buy a house?
  • Learn ways to construct a deal on a house you never own
  • Learn the clauses you should use in the notes when you buy or give to sellers
  • Learn a clever ways to make money selling the “rights to use!”
  • You will have 5 new tools which will work in this market to make you more money!
  • You will lean how money works and how to do a deal properly in order to make more money and make money without money
  • Learn how to present your offer to get the deal done quick and in a profitable manner
  • Learn the easy to do techniques and the ones that are very complicated as well
  • Making offers will become easy and simple!
  • And much, much more…

Learning how to creatively make offers and becoming a transaction engineer is a must for seasoned and new investors! Find out what are the latest techniques in buying an selling and real estate in general in a fast moving market like ours.

If you could learn how to structure one deal and save yourself $10,000, would you go to that event and pay attention?

I know I would and I will be there.

Members of any REIA are free, non-members $20 at the door.

We will meet on Wednesday, October 14th at the Hudson Grille, at 7PM. Get there early at 6:30 to order your food and drink.

EARLY BIRD BONUS: I believe in rewarding action takers and entrepreneurs that are willing to do what it takes in order to change their lives or have the desire to get better at what they are already doing. Therefore, I will offer some bonuses. As a special bonus this month for all “early birds,” I am offering the following:

  1. A digital copy of my book, “Extraordinary Results by Ordinary Investors”
