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!

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.

We are no longer asking you to bring your checkbook, however you will be disappointed if you don’t because these deals will be purchased by someone, and you will have the first opportunity to profit from them.a

Funding for these deals will be provided by our sponsors, Angel Oak Prime Bridge & Barnett Capital. Each group desiring to participate in the deal will form an LLC, identify member responsibilities, open an operational bank account and fund holding costs for the deal and execute a purchase contract for the property. Your projects will be overseen by a professional engineer and an experienced rehab investor.

Our goal is to have fun, make a profit and learn how to properly rehab a property. We will also provide the buyer and the neighborhood with homes that are shining examples of what we, as investors, do for the economy and the community.

Bring your checkbook or not. Either way, you will walk away from this meeting with knowledge and tools to help you become a better investor.

No less than three properties will be presented at the meeting. Each will meet the Angel Oak 65% or 100% financing criteria. Come join us and do your first rehab!
