Where to Get the Money Now
with Jay Conner

Jay ConnerWe are excited to announce that real estate and private money expert Jay Conner is our keynote speaker for May. Jay will teach you “Where to Get the Money Now” to fund all of your real estate deals. He will teach you how he has built his buying and selling houses business into a seven figure income in less than 2 years on automatic using a simple, step-by-step system (that anyone can duplicate) which enabled him to raise $2,150,000 in less than 90 Days.

Jay is going to share the knowledge he’s acquired while creating a 7-Figure annual income in his own Real Estate Business with you! Jay’s specialty is acquiring Private Money for his renovation projects. And whether you know it or not, the difference between the rich and the “just getting by” into today’s Real Estate World…is Private Money.

A large part of Jay’s business is based on people putting up the money to make a loan so he can buy a property cheap and take advantage of the bank-owned real estate bonanza that’s going on out there right now. Jay always gets a big check when he buys a property and doesn’t even make monthly payments on his loans!

If you’re remotely interested in transforming your Real Estate Career from a frustrating hobby to a thriving 6-Figure business that churns out thousands of dollars in passive income month after month, this may be the most important meeting you attend all year!

Join us at the meeting and Jay will teach you how to:

  1. Never miss out on a deal because you don’t have the money to fund it
  2. Step-by-step, how Jay raised $2,150,000 in 90 days
  3. Get an unlimited amount of funds for your deals
  4. Tap into Jay’s Private Lender Data Feed of over 8000 private lenders who are waiting to fund your deals
  5. Get 2 big checks every time you close a deal… one when you buy and one when you sell

FREE BONUSES JUST FOR ATTENDING: Jay will be giving away several bonuses for all those who attend:

Jay Conner' BookFree Gift #1: Jay’s National Best-Selling Book – “The New Masters of Real Estate: Getting Deals Done in the New Economy”: This book, packed with quality content, shows you how Jay built his house buying and selling business to a 7-Figure Income in less than 2 years on how he now runs it on autopilot!

Jay Conner' CDFree Gift #2: “The 5 Myths About Private Lending-Exposed!” CD: On this CD, Jay not only reveals 5 myths about private lending, but he will also tell you the amazing discovery he made that helped him raise $2,150,000 in private funds in less than 90 Days!

Jay Conner' VaultFree Gift #3: Jay Conner’s Secret “Unlock the Vault” Resource: Discover how to find Existing Private Lenders right in your local area who are ready and willing to fund your deals regardless of your credit or experience!

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?

Rock ShukoorDo any of these obstacles apply to you? If so, you must attend my upcoming Marketing Madness Workshop on Saturday, April 19th from 9AM to 5PM at the Keller Williams Office* located at 200 Glenridge Point Pkwy NE, Suite 100 in Sandy Springs, 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.

During the Marketing Madness Workshop, I will share tons of useful and up to date information and teach you how to become a “Marketing Machine” and the “Go-to Person” for hot deals in your market.

I will teach you direct mail marketing secrets, voice broadcasting, mobile marketing, text message broadcasting, video marketing, social media marketing, how to build a buyers list, and many more killer marketing techniques that can be used in any market. I will also teach you many of my wholesaling techniques, share the resources you need and keep it simple, fun, fast and easy!

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!

Learn to Cover Your Assets
& Avoid Unnecessary Risk!

with Special Guest, Attorney Doug Shaddix

Doug ShaddixYou’re working hard to put together a real estate portfolio to financially take care of you and your family.  Have you stopped long enough to be sure you’ve done what’s necessary to protect those assets?  John D. Rockefeller once stated, “Own nothing, but control everything.” Basically what he meant was ‘what you don’t own can’t be taken from you’.  

Join us as at the upcoming Atlanta REIA Wild Wild West Subgroup on Monday, March 24th at 6:30PM where Special Guest, Attorney Doug Shaddix, will show you how to protect your assets so people can’t take them from you on a whim.

Attorney Shaddix will be covering all of the ways to protect your assets… corporations, LLCs, trusts, Wyoming or Nevada LLCs, offshore and more. This insider info is how the “in-the know” wealthy do business to grow and protect their assets and keep their name off the public record!  Join us Monday for “don’t miss” info, including:

  • When is the right time to STOP buying and selling real estate in your own name and START forming entities to do business in?
  • Which entity should you consider using for your deals?  (Yes there is a BIG difference here… learn it before it’s too late and Uncle Sam gets in your pocket WAY too deep!)
  • How do you structure your empire for maximum asset protection and lowest taxation?
  • True stories of those who failed to protect their assets and what happened to them

We’ll be meeting Monday night at the Cherokee Cattle Company at 2710 Canton Road in Marietta (just off I-75) for a great evening of fun, must have information for any  investor, drinks, desserts, and great networking!  Doors open at 6:30pm, so come on in and order dinner and get some networking in before the meeting officially starts at 7pm.  There will be great door prizes too!  Come on down and bring a friend! Atlanta REIA Members get in FREE and guests are just $5.00 at the door.  

BTW, you may submit questions to Attorney Shaddix via my email address at leslie@happytrailshomes.com and I will be sure to get them to him. He will address them on Monday evening at the meeting.  See you there!

    Please Note: When you register for this event, you will be able to download a copy of Ron’s Property Information Sheet (Download here). Take this lead sheet, call a few sellers and get a few of these completed lead sheets to class and Ron will analyze the deals with you and try to help you close some deals in class. Ron will be giving out “I Buy Houses” T-Shirts to everyone who brings in some fully completed lead sheets!
