The Onsite Renovation Group
Meets Tuesday, April 21st at NOON
576 John Wesley Dobbs Ave, Atlanta 30312

Onsite Renovation GroupThis Month on Tuesday, April 21st at NOON at 576 John Wesley Dobbs Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30312, the Onsite group will meet at a property where we have been doing a new construction. We have seen this project at previous meetings when the house was in different phases. It is very exciting to say the house is finished! Join us Tuesday to see the beautiful new home. The project is in the Old Fourth Ward, which is a neighborhood that has suddenly become hot because of the proximity to the Beltline and the Ponce City Market development in the historic Sears building. Don’t miss this meeting that should prove to be a very informative discussion about tearing down a house and building a new construction.

Aaron McGinnisThe Onsite Renovation Group, led by Aaron McGinnis of Craftbuilt Properties, is an educational and networking group that focuses on the acquisition, renovation and retail resale (fix and flip) of single family residential homes inside the I-285 perimeter and the in-town neighborhoods. The purpose of this group is to allow both new and experienced rehabbers and investors to meet, network and share knowledge and experience with “hands on” access to real property. The Onsite Renovation Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday each month at NOON at an active renovation site, build site or rental property which will vary from month to month. There is currently no charge to attend this meeting.

The Atlanta Wholesalers Group
Meets Tuesday, April 21st at 7PM
Hudson Grille, 6317 Roswell Rd, Sandy Springs, GA
Buyers – They Come In Many Flavors For Your Deals!
with Frank Iglesias

RSVP on Meetup.com
Please RSVP on Meetup.com if you have a meetup account.

Atlanta Wholesalers GroupBuyers… some of your best friends as a wholesaler!

You have to have them since you need someone to wholesale too. But they come in so many flavors.

Some want this, some want that. Some want it all. Some are happy with the basics. Some of them don’t want the kitchen sink and some of them expect two sinks. Some of them say your numbers are high, some say they are low. Some love your deals, some don’t. Some want rehabs, some want cash flow.

And on and on and on it seems are the reasons why they buy or don’t buy.

At this meetup, let’s get them in some buckets so as you go into your deals, you know who your target Buyer is and arguably as important, who it is not.

We will also talk about how to work with Buyers to get them to make offers so that if you don’t have a deal but do have an interested Buyer, you have the opportunity to create one.

Also in our last meeting deal analysis, we had some interesting deals with some more unique points so bring yours and let’s talk about them on the big screen.

And do bring your deals! There are active Buyers such as myself in the room looking for deals to buy each and every month. Many wholesale deals and transactional loans have come out of the group so come expecting to make money!

Frank IglesiasMy name is Frank Iglesias. Come join us on Tuesday, April 21st at 7PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs as we network, do what is now our standard deal analysis at every meeting and then we will dive into our topic for the evening!

This Atlanta Wholesalers group is primarily for wholesalers who are serious about the business and not just “trying” Real Estate out. Frank started this group to work with other wholesalers who are serious about building their business using the utmost of honesty and integrity. We are looking forward to exploring how we can grow together in our local market. We hope you will join us!

Atlanta REIA North Meeting
Researching Properties & Marketing to Off Market Sellers
with Chuck Phillips
April 15th, 6:30PM
1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, GA

RSVP Now!

Chuck PhillipsWe are excited to announce that Chuck Phillips with CRS Data will be the guest speaker at this month’s Atlanta REIA North Meeting. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 15th at 6:30PM located at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, GA. Chuck will be showing us how to use CRS Data’s proprietary software to find and organize all the important property information you need so you can make informed decisions in all your real estate investing transactions.

CRS Data is a leading consolidator of information gleaned from public records provides data to MLS Services, Realtors, Appraisers, Banks/Lenders, Government Agencies, as well as investors.

Chuck has worked with Courthouse Retrieval System (CRS) for over 11 years. He has worked with all types of individuals from Investors, Realtors, Mortgage Companies, Banks, Surveyors, and Developers on how to utilize public record information. He is licensed to teach “Using Public Records to Enhance Your Business” by the Tennessee Realtors Association in TN. Public records can be used to answer the following questions:

  • Where do you find off market properties?
  • How do you get in touch with people who don’t know they want to sell?
  • How do you become the only buyer?
  • How do you get contact information on a vacant property?
  • Where do you get the information to become the neighborhood expert?
  • Where do you get a mailing list of absentee owners?
  • How do you get a list of owners of multiple properties?
  • And much much more.

Public records are free to look at from state or county sites using the program provided by that organization. Most of the time all you can obtain is the Owners Name, Address, Tax Information, Parcel Number, Year/Effective Year Built, Lat/Long Information if the county has GIS maps, etc. The program from CRS, with the various Search Filters, allows you to sift through this data to arrive at the results you would like. If you are looking for out of state owners with a certain type of improvement, square footage, year built in a certain zip/street, this program can filter out that information. If you need a home with an existing mortgage, this information can be found.

All of this is public information, but the Engine CRS has with the various filters makes it very easy to find and export to Excel for marketing purposes. If you find a home and need to know the comps around the home, this can easily be found based on date, distance, and time of sale. This is another feature any investor needs depending on the type of exit strategy they have for the property.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to save yourself TONS of time researching properties! RSVP Now to secure your seat. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

All Inclusive Marketing (AIM) Group
How to Automate Your Marketing by Using Virtual Assistants
with Russ Hiner
April 13th, 6:30PM, Hudson Grille, Sandy Springs, GA

RSVP Now!

Russ HinerOur next All Inclusive Marketing (AIM) Group Meeting is Monday, April 13th at 6:30PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs. There is no charge for this meeting for Atlanta REIA Members. Guests and Non-Members can pay $20.00 at the door or RSVP Online for $15.00.

AIM is excited about April’s monthly meeting. A good friend, a great marketer, and a successful, active investor, Russ Hiner will be our special guest speaker.

I respect Russ a lot for his knowledge, creativity and ability to make a deal out of almost nothing. He has owned real estate in 9 different states and has coached/mentored investors across the United States.

Russ has gone to the school of hard knocks many times. The tuition alone has made him value wisdom and others’ experience. He has experienced doing deals that were very profitable and exciting. These deals allowed him to achieve the goals and dreams he had set out for himself. Russ has learned that this stuff works…and a lot of what doesn’t work.

Russ is an active real estate investor, wholesaler, coach and mentor. He will share with us how to use Virtual Assistants (VAs) that you pay less than $3.00 an hour to get your marketing done for you. He will also share:

  • How to get paid more and do less!
  • How to find properties you can wholesale!
  • Where to find them from!
  • What part of business you should be doing!
  • Who to hire so they can get the work you do not want to do done for you!
  • Who to delegate almost everything to!
  • Delegate your marketing and make lead generation a breeze!
  • And much, much more!

We all have a limited amount of time to live our life. Why not maximize the event? Why not spend your time with people who will put large deposits into your bank account and delegate the details to others?

When you attend this exciting and dynamic presentation by Russ Hiner, you will receive a system to hire a virtual assistant to make your life easier and simpler. By you delegating your short comings to another individual, they will do it better and faster. They will love you because you are allowing them to have their dream of a fun job and learn how to do real estate.

If you are over worked and under paid, then come and learn how to get paid more and do less. Learn how you can start achieving your goals of spending time with your family, doing the fun stuff, and getting the hard stuff done through others that you will pay $3.00 or less per hour. Russ will even give you a hand out of potential VAs for you to hire!

When you have made the decision to get out of your JOB or supplement your income, then this is the place to get solid, real life systems. You don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to hear Russ speak on Monday night at AIM!

RSVP Now!
