Atlanta REIA South Meeting
Determining the ARV
with Special Guest, Alisha Spence
Please Note the New Meeting Location Below

We are pleased to announce that Alisha Spence will be the presenter at the ALL NEW Atlanta REIA South Group which is being held on the first Wednesday of each month starting at 6:00 PM at Club E located at 2707 Main Street in College Park. This month, on Wednesday, June 4th at 6PM, Alicia will be discussing how to determine the “After Repair Value” (ARV) as accurately as possible.

One of the frustrations facing new investors is determining what a property is worth and what they can pay for it. In the rapidly changing market we are operating in, it is critical to be able to objectively determine the retail price for a property. In order to determine what to pay for a property, one must know the ARV.

Alicia has been doing BPO’s for banks, homeowners, investors as well as asset management companies and hedge funds. Her insights into this important topic are valuable. Alisha is an Associate Broker who has been specializing in the valuation, sales, and marketing of investment real estate in the Metro Atlanta suburbs since 2005. Alisha is experienced in many aspects of real estate including residential and commercial property management, managing operations, acquisitions and sales for one of the largest and most productive real estate investment companies in Atlanta.

There is a $10.00 charge for all attendees which includes a light dinner. Networking and dinner take place from 6 to 7pm. At 7pm, we move upstairs and split into two groups… the Multi-Family/Landlord Group and the Single Family Group. Club E is located at 2707 Main Street in College Park. Parking is in the rear as well as an entrance to the Facility. from Main Street, turn at the traffic light on to Princeton Drive. There are 2 parking lots in rear as well as signage pointing to parking. If the first lot is full, you may park in the Bank of America lot.

Putting Your Real Estate Investing Business on AutoPilot
with Special Guest, Frank Iglesias
Please Note the New Meeting Location Below

Frank IglesiasCome join us at the Creative Deal Structuring Group on Wednesday, June 4th at 6:30PM at Atkins Park Tavern located at 794 N Highland Ave NE in Atlanta where active real estate investor and coach, Frank Iglesias, will be showing you how to automate your real estate investing business. There is a $3.00 cover charge for Atlanta REIA Members and $5.00 for non-members.

Most people get into real estate to make money and to have the freedom to spend their time as they wish. But as your investing business grows, you will soon find there are more tasks that need to be completed than you can handle. If you are not careful, you will find yourself consumed with so much “busy-ness” that you don’t have time to work on your “busi-ness” and to enjoy the freedom you crave.

But there is good news! Many of the mundane, repetitive tasks that need doing can be automated or delegated to others. Frank has discovered a number of methods he uses in his own real estate investing business that will greatly assist you in your business. At the meeting, Frank will teach you:

  • How To Put Your Business On AutoPilot
  • How To Reduce Your Workload
  • How and What To Outsource
  • How To Get Your Time Back For The REAL Important Things
  • Any much, much more…

Frank is one of the Founders and Managing Partners of Working With Houses, LLC, an Atlanta area Real Estate Investment Company that primarily works in the residential renovation industry, repairing and updating properties to bring value back to neighborhoods that have been devalued by the recent housing crisis. Frank has been involved in this industry for the last four years in which tremendous change has brought much volatility. He has been able to adapt with the times and to grow his business despite the volatility. He looks forward to helping you along your path to real estate investing success as so many others have already helped him along his way.

Door Fees are: Atlanta REIA Members $3 and Non-Members $5 per person. Seating is limited so arrive early to secure your seat.

The Creative Deal Structuring Group (CDS) is a group that is all about creative deal structuring and how to apply it in your everyday life and business. If you’re looking to obtain the proper tools, get knowledge you need, and feel better about structuring real estate transactions for profit, then the Creative Deal Structuring Group is the right group for you. CDS is led by Russ Hiner who is an active investor, coach, mentor and speaker.
