Be 100% There!

Posted on April 3, 2017 by

How important is it, when meeting with a seller, buyer, renter, realtor or contractor, to be totally focused on that person?  If you’re not paying complete attention to what that person says and how he or she says it (tone of voice, hand gestures, body position, eye movement), isn’t there a good chance you’ll miss critical information that’s being shared with you?

The number of people who are not 100% there during a meeting has become epidemic – and is a major pet peeve of mine!  If you’re over fifty years old, you already know what I’m talking about.  Baby Boomers grew up without cell phones, emails, and text messages.  Heck, we didn’t even have phone answering machines!

Here’s an example of this epidemic at work.  A real estate investor needed help structuring a deal and asked for an hour of my time.  He drove up from Atlanta and met me at the Adairsville Waffle House. Read More→

At the meeting, Mr. Tycoon will be teaching our members and guests “Why Wholesaling & Why Now?!”

At the meeting, Mr. Tycoon is going to show you “when you wholesale houses, you make your money – in cash – before you buy!” He’s also going to show you why finding bargain properties is probably the most important skill you can ever possibly learn as a real estate investor.

During his 90 minute presentation, Mr. Tycoon will teach you…

  • What it means to wholesale a house
  • How wholesaling can be done with very little money, training and absolutely no cred
  • How to wholesale houses part time and make a full time income
  • Answers to your questions and so much more!

Mr. Tycoon will teach strategies that will enable you to…

  • Pay off all your debt and past due bills
  • Start building (or re-building) your retirement account so you never have to worry about running out of money during retirement
  • Quit your job and live your life in freedom
  • How to get on the fast track to wealth

Wahid Shakur, aka “Mr. Tycoon”, is an internationally renowned Motivational Speaker, Personal Development Coach, Investment Real Estate Guru and Entrepreneur of Success. Mr. Tycoon is legendary for his “tough but fair” deal-making and negotiation skills. His bestselling book, “Success Is Not A Secret, It’s A System,” extracts the lessons he learned on the road to building his successful real estate investment company and personal fortune, and is the “must-have” guidebook to achieving financial and personal success. Read more about Mr. Tycoon >>

Come spend 90 minutes with Mr. Tycoon at the Atlanta REIA Meeting on Monday, April 3rd at 5:00 PM and learn how to get started wholesaling houses or how to take your existing wholesaling business to the next level.

The High Tech Home Buyers Creative Deal Makers Subgroup
Apr 3rd Meeting Before the Meeting
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaAre you spending money on marketing and not getting any deals? Are you able to take any lead and make a deal out of it? Do you know how to make multiple offers that actually get accepted? Are you using technology to your advantage? If the answer is “NO” to these questions then you MUST attend this subgroup meeting.

Would you like to learn how to structure deals so you can buy houses with little or none of your own cash and none of your own credit? 15 hours a week… That’s all you need! Imagine… taking any seller lead and being able to create a winning deal out of it… Making thousands of dollars where you thought there were none. No more wasted marketing dollars. No more wasted phone calls. No more wasted time.

Join Don DeRosa at the High Tech Home Buying Creative Deal Structuring Subgroup on Monday, April 3rd from 5PM to 6PM at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting where he will be teaching about a wide variety of topics each month. Don will teach you about the state-of-the-art tools and techniques you’ll use to evaluate deals and figure out how to make them work – so you can work less and spend more time where you want, when you want and with whom you want.

Some topics Don will be teaching about include:

  • Using Apps on your iPad or other mobile device to evaluate deals on the go
  • 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.

Its an amazing time to be a real estate investor. Don’t look back 5 years from now and wish you had acted. Learn how to buy right… Learn to Make More and Work Less, Right Now!

Wholesale Renegade Workshop

A Full Day Workshop with Mr. Tycoon
April 29 from 9AM – 5PM at
3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA
Early Registration Special.
Register Now & Save $100 to $200!

Mr. TycoonAre you interested in Wholesaling Houses for quick cash? Perhaps you don’t know what wholesaling is… so let me quickly explain…Hi, my name is Mr. Tycoon and I am a full time real estate investor who specializes in finding Wholesaling deals. On Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 9AM to 5PM at 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA, I am teaching a Wholesale Renegade Workshop to teach you how you can wholesale houses for quick cash. Register Now!

Wholesaling is the process of finding great deals, getting that deal under contract, and then selling that contract to another person who actually ends up buying the property. It can seem a little confusing at first, but it’s really quite simple. You are simply selling the contract. You never own the property, never fix the property up, and never deal with tenants.

A lot of new investors really like the idea of wholesaling. And what’s not to love? It can be done with very little money, credit, or experience but has the potential to make a lot of money. Plus, I’ve done over 1,000 of these types of deals and have trained hundreds of people just like you to do the same. One thing is required on your part… to “Do The Work!”

I will teach you everything I know and what me and My Mentees are doing in the market today. So, when you attend this One Day Wholesale Renegade Workshop, you will leave with the Full Knowledge and Action Plan to Jump Start your Real Estate Career.

What you’ll learn at the Wholesale Renegade Workshop…:

  • The easiest and most overlooked ways to find deals in your market that lead to consistent paydays.
  • The one document you must always use to guarantee you get paid.
  • How to tap into an unlimited source of buyers your competition doesn’t know about.
  • How to maintain a steady flood of daily deals in your pipeline.
  • The three forms of paperwork most new investors forget to include that can cause hang-ups at the closing table and keep you from getting paid
  • How to spot the most profitable deals that put the most money in your pocket
  • How to build an automated business that runs without you and continues to pay you while you do what you love so you can quit your job and rely on your real estate income full time

So what happens if you DON’T use private lenders? Well, you’re stuck with the amount of money that you have or are able to borrow from traditional or hard money lenders. And sooner or later you’ll run out of money. You’ll have to pass on a lot of good deals, because you don’t have the money. Line up your lenders now, so you can take advantage of those good deals when you find them.

The agenda for the day will look like this…

  • Real Estate 101 “Overview” Why do Real Estate TODAY?.
  • Wholesaling For Cash (You never own the property, never fix the property up, and never deal with tenants.)
  • Marketing for Deals (What’s Working Today) My Top 3 Secrets
  • A Day with Mr. Tycoon (On the phone, In Person Q&A and Researching on Computer)
  • Finding buyers
  • Knowing how to correctly value a property (Research 101)
  • Knowing how much repairs would cost
  • Negotiating with motivated sellers (Script)
  • Online Marketing for Buyers and Sellers
  • The Master’s Money Making SYSTEM
  • Navigating through the legal side (All of The Paperwork That I Use Daily)
  • Top Secret to Getting Your First Deal Revealed!
  • Private Lending (Bonus Session)
  • Answers to your questions and much more!

Clearly, there is a lot more to Wholesaling than just putting an ad up on Craigslist and collecting a 5-figure paycheck. So, to help, I’ve created this One Day Wholesale Renegade Workshop to help you Jump-start your Wholesaling Business and your Real Estate Investing Business!

Leslie MathisPlease be sure to join us at the Beginning Investors Group Online on Wednesday, March 22nd at 7:00PM ET with Leslie Mathis and learn all about how creative deal structuring can help you generate more profits for your real estate investing business.

When you find a seller with a real estate problem that you can’t solve by buying for cash at a discount, Creative Deal Structuring gives you many more tools in your toolbox for you to solve their problem…giving YOU more ways to PROFIT! Leslie will share with you those tools.

You’ll learn:

  • 4 Different Deal Structures
  • What you must get from your motivated sellers to structure deals that will solve their problems
  • 3 Ways You Can Make A Profit Using Creative Deal Structures
  • And answers to your questions and much more!

Leslie began her real estate career when she found herself broke and living in her parents garage after following the traditional path of “get a degree (she got two), get a job, and live the American Dream” failed her. With no money and no cred, she had to find a way out of her situation.

When she was introduced to buying real estate without using her own money or cred, she embraced Creative Deal Structuring with a passion and was able to leave her job shortly thereafter. Leslie has never looked back, using Creative Deal Structuring to build economic independence for herself. She wants you to know that you can do it too!

We will not be pitching products from the front of the room. We will strive to remain a forum for investors to do deals and learn and seek advice from your peers and trusted industry professionals. The more you attend and participate, the more deals you’ll do and, the smarter we all become.

Leslie MathisJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group on Monday, March 20th at 6:30PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, GA, with Leslie Mathis and learn all about how creative deal structuring can help you generate more profits for your real estate investing business.

When you find a seller with a real estate problem that you can’t solve by buying for cash at a discount, Creative Deal Structuring gives you many more tools in your toolbox for you to solve their problem…giving YOU more ways to PROFIT! Leslie will share with you those tools.

You’ll learn:

  • 4 Different Deal Structures
  • What you must get from your motivated sellers to structure deals that will solve their problems
  • 3 Ways You Can Make A Profit Using Creative Deal Structures
  • And answers to your questions and much more!

Leslie began her real estate career when she found herself broke and living in her parents garage after following the traditional path of “get a degree (she got two), get a job, and live the American Dream” failed her. With no money and no cred, she had to find a way out of her situation. When she was introduced to buying real estate without using her own money or cred, she embraced Creative Deal Structuring with a passion and was able to leave her job shortly thereafter. Leslie has never looked back, using Creative Deal Structuring to build financial freedom for herself. She wants you to know that you can do it too!
