Anyone Can Register to Attend for FREE
Online at BIGO.co!

Tom KrolJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group Online Webinar on Tuesday, June 25th at 7PM ET where Tom Krol will be discussing the Greatest Real Estate Business… Wholesaling. Tom will be talking about what is working today and what is not when it comes to wholesaling houses for fast cash.

For those of you that may not be familiar with Wholesaling yet, it is the art of finding bargain (discounted) properties and passing those bargains along to bargain hunters for profit.

During Tom’s presentation you will learn…

  • Keep revenue in first position
  • Target motivated sellers everyone else is ignoring
  • Take Massive Imperfect Action
  • Replace education with instruction
  • Get out of your own way
  • Treat wholesaling like a pawn shop instead of a real estate business
  • Price a house in 30 seconds
  • Keep an attitude of progress, not perfection
  • Become who you need to be in order to be a millionaire
  • And totally automate your business with delegation instead of tools and systems!
  • Answers to your questions and much more!

Tom is the founder of Wholesaling Inc and PSL Homebuyers and is considered to be one of the most successful Real Estate Wholesalers in the country. Through his unique approach to Real Estate investing, Tom has bought and sold numerous properties across the country and has taught aspiring Real Estate investors how to do the same.

Are You Missing Out On Deals Because You Only Know One Technique to Buy Houses? Let Larry Harbolt Show You How to Add One to Five Extra Deals Every Month to Take Your Business to the Next Level!

Larry HarboltHere are a few words from Larry Harbolt about his upcoming presentation at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on Monday, June 10th from 5PM-9PM at 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA where he will be teaching attendees different ways to buy houses than paying all cash…

One thing I know for sure, real estate markets come, and they go. At times they get hot, and other times they cool off in every area of the country. Over the 40 years I’ve been in the business I have seen the market conditions change numerous times. One thing I’ve learned over the years is, depending on how you buy properties makes a vast difference of how much profit you make from the deals you do.

On Monday, June 10th, I will be sharing what I have learned why slow markets and economic conditions never will be a factor to your business ever again. I will be sharing the “7” reasons why most investors are not making the kind of money they should be making. I know not everyone suffers from all of the “7” issues, but I will guarantee everyone is suffering from one or more of these simple to change matters. Once you are aware of what is challenging your success, it will be much easier to maximize your profits in your real estate business.

Let Me Ask You – Which Type of Investor Are You?

  1. Thinking About Becoming a Real Estate Investor but Don’t Know How to Get Started?
  2. Already an Investor Who Would Like to Be More Effective Finding and Buying More Properties?
  3. Already Successful as An Investor Who Wants to Move to the Next Level?

Whichever Box You Checked You Don’t Want to Miss Hearing Me Monday Evening! At the Meeting, I Will Share With You:

  • Those “7” Reasons Why Most Investors Fail Today. Do You Suffer From Any of These Issues?
  • Why Market Conditions and Economic Cycles No Longer Need to Have An Effect On the Way, You Do Your Real Estate Business.
  • How to Quickly Recognize Which Deals are Money Makers and Which Are Money Pits.
  • Immediately Recognize the Highest and Best Use of Each Property to Maximize Profits.
  • Where to Find Property Your Competition Have No Idea Are Available.
  • How to Structure Offers Giving the Seller What They Want, and You Get What You Want. It’s All In the Numbers.
  • I Will Show You How to Quickly Eliminate Your Competition. They Won’t Have a Clue What You Are Doing.
  • Why You Won’t Need Money or Good Credit to Buy Real Estate.
  • You Can Use a Little Known technique to Give the Seller Quick Cash You Don’t Have Without the Need to Borrow.
  • How to Create the Perfect Wholesale/Flip Deals.
  • How You Can Create Huge Profits Without Having Property Ownership.
  • Answers to your vacation rentals questions and more!

I will be showing everyone who attends Monday, June 10th a new strategy I have never seen anyone else teach that I have been using for years that has given me the ability to do deals others can’t. With this one idea can increase your bottom line $100,000 or more every year. You don’t want to miss this technique. I have decided to share with all who want to make more money and do more deals.

Be Sure to join me June 10th, and again Saturday, June 15th for a full day Creative Deal Structuring Workshop where I will be sharing the ideas very few investors use In today’s market.

So, bring a notepad, bring a friend, and get to this meeting since it could dramatically affect your monthly cash flow and real estate investing business forever! RSVP NOW & DON’T MISS IT!

Why is Real Estate the IDEAL Investment Strategy?
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaHey folks, Don DeRosa here… I’d like to personally invite you to kick off the monthly Atlanta REIA Meeting with me on June 10th at 5PM Sharp.

At this special session on “Buying Houses Subject-To” I will show you how to buy your next 1) personal residence, 2) long term rental or 3) short term vacation rental without having use your own cash or cred or having to go to the bank for a loan.

Many people believe that stocks and bonds are the way to wealth in America. Many people also believe that you have to buy multiple properties a month to be successful in real estate. Well, I am going to show you how neither of those two statements are true.

I’m going to show you how quality beats quantity every time. At the meeting before the meeting I am going to show you why real estate is the IDEAL investment strategy to create wealth hands down.

I will show you how to build a pretty healthy retirement nest egg on only a few properties. I will share how buying properties using other people’s money and other people’s credit is the only way to go.

You will learn:

  • Why income producing properties are SO important
  • How real estate is the one true tax shelter
  • How simply utilizing TIME is the BEST way to creating wealth
  • How to retire wealthy simply buy walking to the mailbox every month
  • How to use small amounts of cash ( or none at all ) to buy all the properties you want and need.

Join me at 5PM SHARP on Monday June 10th and learn arguably the BEST wealth building technique on the planet!

Deal Structuring Workshop
Learn How to Make More Profit on Every Single Deal You Do!
A Full Day Workshop with Larry Harbolt
Saturday, June 15th, 9AM-5PM
3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA

Larry HarboltOn Saturday, June 15th from 9AM to 5PM at the 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA, our good friend Larry Harbolt will be sharing with us a full day of new and exciting ideas that will dramatically increase your profits on every deal simply by tweaking the way you structure your offers to sellers. Register Now!

Larry will show us how he uses the “4 Key Parts” every offer must contain. He will show us how using a combination of Time, Payment, Interest and Price can be manipulated to give a seller what they want and also get what you want for a win-win transaction. You will be amazed how easy it is to make profitable offers that others can’t match because they don’t know these advanced techniques.

Larry will also explain why paying interest always steals profits and monthly cash flow on every financed deal. Paying more interest than necessary is not a profitable strategy as everyone knows, and is why you end up paying thousands of dollars more for each property you buy. After you hear what Larry will be showing us on Saturday, you will forget thinking that the price is the most important part of getting your offers accepted! There really is a better way!

Here is a few words from Larry Harbolt with more specifics about what he will be teaching at this exciting all day event…

“Mark your calendar to be sure you will be able to join me Saturday, June 15th when I will be showing you why, whatever the current market is in your area will never be a factor in the way you buy real estate. You don’t want to miss this!

At the workshop, I will show you the secrets used by seasoned and successful real estate investors everyday to create great deals most other investors can’t do simply because they know a few basic ideas and strategies others don’t know, regardless of the economy or the availability of properties in the Multiple Listing Service.

After Saturday, you will no longer be handicapped by Bank qualifications or Hard Money Lenders requirements whether you get the money you need to do your deals or not.

Without knowing these secrets, you will be at a distinct disadvantage. I will explain in detail…

  • Why Your Market Conditions and Economic Conditions Will No Longer Be a Factor In the Way You Do Your Real Estate Business?
  • What the Experienced and Seasoned Investors Know That You Don’t Know.
  • How the Way You Structure Your Offers Will Have a Monumental Impact On Your Success Rate.
  • How Seasoned Investors Find Properties to Buy You Have No Idea Are Available.
  • The Secret of How to Structure Offers That Give the Sellers What They Want, Nobody But Me Is Teaching Today.
  • No More Worries About Why Your Competition Is Doing More Deals Than You Are.
  • Nobody In Your Marketplace Will Have a Clue What You Are Doing, or How You Are Doing Your Deals.
  • How to Do Deals Without Money or Credit Will Never Be a Problem Again.
  • How to Perfect Your Wholesale Business and Maximize Your Profits.
  • Details of How You Can Make Huge Profits Without Having Property Ownership.
  • I’ll Also Answer Any Questions You Have About These Techniques.

These are such an important subjects for you to master. The information I will be presenting on Saturday is really simple to understand and easy to use. The best part is, much of this information isn’t taught anywhere on any level. Because of this fact, if you are with us on Saturday, you will have a major advantage over all of your competition. Be sure to mark your calendar and join me on Saturday, June 15th. You will love the information you get and can put it to use on your very next deal!

So Register Now to learn ALL this money-making information for just $19 for Atlanta REIA Gold Members, $39 for Atlanta REIA Silver Members and $69 for Non-Members.

Ramon TookesJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, June 17th at 6:30PM at the Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs with Ramon Tookes on “Learning the Steps to Successfully Managing Repairs & Renovations!”

One common source of angst among new real estate investors is dealing with contractors and fear of the actual flip! The two most common methods are to 1) hire a General Contractor or 2) manage your own rehabs. Another 3rd viable alternative is to hire a Project Manager to be your eyes and ears for your rehab.

No matter what method you choose, every single rehab requires some level of day-to-day management. But once you define and develop a system that works for you, the fear will dissipate and you will feel confident with this highly profitable investment strategy.

Come join seasoned 24+ year investor, author, coach and wealth builder, Ramon Tookes at the Beginning Investors Group and learn how to:

  • Interview and hire a General Contractor (GC) and sub-contractors
  • Manage the schedule
  • Manage the budget
  • Find and negotiate bids
  • Maintain Quality of the Rehab
  • Procure Materials
  • Answers to Your Questions and More!

If you want to eliminate your fears fo rehabbing and working with contractors, you definitely do not want to miss this exciting presentation with Ramon Tookes at the Beginning Investors Group Meeting. Take Action and RSVP Now!

This month’s meeting will be held at property being rehabbed by Georgette Black located at 2072 Dekalb Ave NE, Atlanta, GA.

Onsite PropertyThis is Georgette’s first rehab project. She purchased this home as a 1950’s cottage that was only 963 sqft with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and in terrible condition in the Great Lake Clair Neighborhood. The plot she purchased was part of 7 being sold and this was actually split into 2 plots and she purchased the larger of the two with the house on it.

Because the home was in such terrible shape, Georgette had to do a complete rehab and tear the house down to the foundation. She has turned it into a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 3500 sqft home with a 2 car garage. It has a huge front porch, a large rear deck and an open floor plan throughout.

The house should be completed and staged by the time we visit the property on June 18th. So RSVP Now and come check out this MASSIVE Rehab project being completed by a 1st time rehabber!

Joseph CastanedaOnsite PropertyPlease join us on Tuesday, June 4th at NOON for the Atlanta REIA Onsite Renovation Group (ORG) to learn all about finding, funding, fixing and flipping houses (or holding) for big profits right here in the metro Atlanta area. This month’s meeting will be held at property being rehabbed by Joseph Castaneda, of Baker Collins, located at 15 Baker Dr SW, Atlanta, GA.

Onsite PropertyThis is Joseph’s first MAJOR Rehab project. He purchased this home recently as a fire damaged, 2 bedroom, 1 bath, 1000 sqft house. Apparently, at one time, squatters broke in and burnt it down. Joseph tried to save some of the home, but the damage was to extensive and he couldn’t save much at all. The more wood he removed, the more damage he found, so he had to take the house down to the foundation and rebuild the house new.

Onsite PropertyCurrently, Joseph’s rehab has passed electrical and plumbing inspection. He is waiting on HVAC and FRAMING inspection. Once that passes, he we can start with insulation and sheetrock. The rehab is well underway and much progress has been made, so RSVP Now and come check it out!

Ron DimmockJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, May 20th at 6:30PM at the Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs with Ron Dimmock on “Building Your Flip Team for the NFL… the New Flip League!”

Ron says… “You’ve probably heard how exciting flipping can be as well as how scary it can be. Flipping is not for everyone, but if done right and connected with a strong network of players, you can win the big game and become the Tom Brady of flipping in your community or surrounding areas.

There is a lot to do before choosing areas of interest or making offers. Flipping is not about one deal or even two deals working. It’s about being consistent across the board. Consistency brings lower fees better pricing and more profits on the back end. You must educate and do the work on the front end so that you can win on the back end.”

Join Ron at the Beginning investor group and he will teach you…

  • The first steps you need to take as a new or seasoned investor
  • The education and funding needed to draft your team of players (contractors, agents, wholesalers, lenders, subcontractors, etc) needed to win in the big flipping game
  • How to pick and choose your team of contractors, agents, wholesalers, lenders and subcontractors needed to start and possibly trade during the game
  • What signs to look for during the Game (the Renovation) that you should watch out for
  • Playing Inside the City vs Outside the City
  • Determining Realistic Flip Goals for the Year (your Stats)
  • Answers to all your questions about playing in the New Flip League (NFL) and more!

If you want to build a winning team and map out realistic goals for flipping or buy and hold team for the next 12 months and beyond, you definitely do not want to miss this special Beginning Investors Group Meeting with Ron Dimmock. Take Action and RSVP Now!
