Don DeRosaLynn OverallThe “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.

Let's Make A DealThe 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!

Marketing Madness Workshop
Sat, February 20th, 9am-5pm – Atlanta, GA
Rock Shukoor’s Real Estate
Marketing Madness Workshop

February 20, 2016 from 9AM to 5PM
*Keller Williams, 200 Glenridge Point Pkwy, Ste 100, Atlanta, GA
Rock Says There are Only 4 Seats Left!
Do you want to learn the fastest and easiest way
to make money in real estate?

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?

  • No Cash?
  • No Credit?
  • No Training?
  • No Experience?
  • No Mentor?
  • No Resources?
  • No Leads?
  • No Confidence?
  • Fear of the Unknown?
  • Fear of Risk Involved?
  • Don’t Want Tenants?
  • Don’t Know Where to Start?

Marketing Madness ManualDo 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.

Rock ShukoorAt 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!

Register Now!

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.

  • Creative Techniques such as Wrap Around Mortgages, Sandwich Lease Options, Subject-To, Seller Financing, and more
  • How to be a transaction engineer.
  • How to be a problem solver.
  • And so much more…

Bring your deals and Don will walk through them step-by-step and he’ll show you how to easily evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller, and get the paperwork done in a snap.

Buying, Selling & Holding Real Estate Tax Free! The Power of Self-Directed IRAs
with Scott Maurer
January 26th, 6:30PM, Solutions Realty Network
100 Glendalough Ct, Suite D2, Tyrone, GA 30290

Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on Meetup.com
Atlanta REIA Members & Guests Please RSVP on Meetup.com

Scott MaurerWe are excited to kick off the new year this month at the EPIC Group with our special guest speaker, Scott Maurer. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 26th at 6:30PM at the Solutions Realty Network Headquarters located at 100 Glendalough Ct, Suite D2 in Tyrone, GA. Scott will be talking about how to grow your business tax free using your self-directed IRA.

Many investors don’t know that it’s even possible to use retirement funds when investing in real estate. Most IRA accounts are invested with banks and brokerage firms who do not allow for this type of investment within their portfolios, but IRS regulations certainly allow for many types of alternative investments. Self-directed IRAs allow individuals to use their IRA funds to purchase rental property, rehabs/flips, private mortgages, tax liens, and much, much more. By using a self-direct IRA, an investor can utilize this “new” bucket of cash to acquire assets that they can better control and thus drive better returns to their IRA. Best of all, the gains from these investments go back to the IRA without any tax implications.

At the meeting you will learn:

  • What types of accounts are eligible to be self-directed
  • How you can move money from current IRA custodians without worrying about tax implications
  • What the rules are pertaining to prohibited transactions and disqualified persons
    (In short, what you can’t do with your self-directed IRA)
  • How the process works from contract to closing, and how the earnings come back to the IRA on a tax-deferred or tax-free basis
  • How to obtain “checkbook control” over your IRA for the purpose of real estate investing
  • And Much, Much More!

Scott has worked for Advanta since 2006, and is a frequent speaker on the topic of self-directed IRAs and using retirement funds to invest in real estate and other alternative assets. Scott is also an attorney and a member of The Florida Bar.

Come on out on Tuesday, January 26th. You are sure to meet some great individuals and make lasting connections that will help propel your business in the right direction. We look forward to seeing you there!

Rock ShukoorWould you like to become a marketing machine and the “go to person” in your market?

Do you want to learn how to find deals others are looking for and cannot find?

Then join us at our Atlanta REIA North monthly meeting to learn how to find one deal a day. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 27th at 6:30PM located at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, GA.

Do you have all the leads you can need?

Marketing has been one of my strong suites and I am very proud of the results I have produced over the years from most of my campaigns. It is time to showcase my guerrilla marketing skills and show you how to find at least one deal a day. Yes, I said, ONE DEAL A DAY. I will show you 7 ways to find 7 deals in 7 days, find all the deals you need at will. I will be sharing everything you need to know on how to find deals quickly without using any money, very little if any. If you have a phone and have access to a computer, you are in business.

I will explain the whole process: the small but vital details, where to find deals, how to find the sellers and how to stay focused to find one deal a day.

At the meeting I will share with you:

  • Where to find deals
  • How to sell them in a flash
  • What market to choose
  • Where to get the list of prospects
  • What kind of properties to focus on
  • How to partner with me to use a list of over 6,000 cash buyers
  • And much, much more

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. I am offering the following:

Joe Thompson This month on Thursday, January 28th at 11:30AM at the 5 Seasons Brewing located at 5600 Roswell Rd, Joe Thompson will be talking about getting your year started off the right way with setting goals and making a plan to execute. Join us on Thursday, January 28th at 11:30AM!

The First Step Every Plan Needs to take a step. Did we really just say a plan needs to take a step? It does not even have legs! Well, the plan needs to take the step – the question that you should be asking is “in what direction?” It is not surprising to hear that most new business fail in the first year. Why is that? With any endeavor if you do not know where you are going, how can you get there? You must establish a destination and your plan needs to move in that direction.

If you stop and think about a destination and take the time to print out a map and chart a course, your chances of success are going to be far greater. You just need a good map and someone who knows the roads – like Atlanta REIA. Before we get to the map, let’s discuss destinations: If you are going to start a real estate business, what is your revenue goal for year one? What is your five year plan? What is your projected gross margin? What does it take to make a profit in your business?

If you are going to become a full time Real Estate Investor, which of the vast number of strategies, techniques and systems are you going to be using? How many deals do you plan to close each month? What are your exit strategies?

If you, like the rest of us here are going to profit from this current real estate market, what are you going to focus your attention on? Short sales, foreclosures, flips, rehab’s, rentals, lease purchase, notes, mobile homes, multi family, commercial, etc, etc? Do you have sufficient funds to do the type of deals you are going to target? If rental property is your goal, how many rentals do you plan to acquire and over what period of time?

Whatever you destination, a plan of attack and a step by step, turn by turn map of how to get there is what you need. You need to make sure your route is sound and that you take the best roads – that you use the best vehicle to minimize costs, save on taxes and protect yourself from the others out there.

Commercial & Multi-Family Real Estate GroupThe Atlanta REIA Commercial & Multi-Family Real Estate Group is an educational, networking and call to action subgroup, led by Steve Brown and Bill Ham that is designed to help real estate investors take their investments to the next level by successfully investing in commercial real estate.

The group meets on the 4th Thursday of each month from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at the 5 Seasons Brewing located at 5600 Roswell Rd (map). Please note that the Commercial & Multi-Family Real Estate Group meets just prior to the Have’s and Wants Meeting which is from 1:30 PM until 3:30 PM. So please come enjoy both of these back to back meetings and get the most out of your day!

Rules and regulations that investors must adhere to are always changing and it is important to stay informed about them.

Equitable Consulting, Inc. is a Consulting Firm for investors and Mortgage Lenders, and a Residential Mortgage Brokerage and Commercial Lender serving the south east since 1999.

Rick will be discussing…

  • Residential & investment underwriting criteria from institutional funding to private lending and how it pertains to stabilized properties, rehabs, and new construction.
  • Pitfalls to watch out for in each of the above types of investments.
  • Relevant ratios you should be aware of and use in making investment decisions.
  • Investment strategy basics for deal #1, buy & hold, and fix & flip properties.
  • And much, much more!

This meeting will give the beginning investor a solid foundation to begin building their real estate investing career and will refocus the seasoned investor to matters of most importance. You will not want to miss this great opportunity to illuminate your business with the insight of a seasoned consultant and jumpstart 2016 in the right direction. You will also gain a fundamental understanding of lending products, regulation compliance, and learn the associated opportunities available to Atlanta REIA members.
