April 25th, 6:30PM, Cherokee Cattle Company
2710 Canton Rd, Marietta, GA

Leslie Mathis and guestsDo you want Financial Freedom so badly that you can almost taste it? Have you ever wondered why some people make it big while others seem to always struggle? Many new and experienced investors suffer in silence, wondering how to achieve real success. It can be very confusing-there’s so much information out there, and every “guru” seems to have their newest, greatest thing you can’t live without if you want to be successful.

Let’s stop the madness! It’s our mission this month to cut through the bull and openly share with you what it really takes to be successful in the real estate business. Just imagine what you could learn from our panel of four, with over a century of experience and knowledge to openly share with you! Come out this month to the Wild West Event, where Sonia, Ramon, Catherine and Leslie will be there to share with you! The meeting will take place on Monday, April 25th at 6:30PM at the Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta.

In January, we shared “Millionaire Secrets” with you and gave you an action plan to get on track for 2016. We promised that we would check in in a few months to see where you are, then help you overcome obstacles that are holding you back. To do so, we’ve put together a power packed panel of four very experienced, successful investors who are going to share with you their knowledge and experience of what it takes for long-term success in the real estate business.

  • Sonia Booker: investor, wealth coach, author, TV and radio show host
  • Ramon Tookes: investor, author, coach, and founder of “Flipology”
  • Catherine McFarland: aka “CA$H Cowgirl”, investor, coach, and House Selling Expert
  • Leslie Mathis: investor, coach, and Master of Creative Deal Structuring

At the meeting you will learn…

  • Essential keys to being a successful real estate investor
  • How to determine your “money blueprint”, then reset it to reach your goals
  • Tools for setting yourself up for success
  • Achieving success while maintaining balance (stop being a workaholic!)
  • How wealthy people think differently than others, and what to model from them

This is truly an event that you don’t want to miss, no matter what your current level of success. You’ll leave with a powerful, new belief in yourself and be ready to take positive action toward your goals. So saddle up and bring your family and friends to this powerful event on Monday April 25th at the Cherokee Cattle Company, 2710 Canton Road in Marietta. Doors open at 6:30pm and event starts at 7pm.

Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on Meetup.com
Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on Meetup.com

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, May 2nd from 5PM to 6PM at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting at the Doubletree 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!

How to Make a Flipping Fortune Wholesaling Crappy Houses
Watch the Webinar Replay
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaDon DeRosa is a part time real estate investor trainer and mentor and full-time real estate investor who actively buys, sells and holds properties each month for fun, profit and long term cash flow.

The topic of our next webinar is “Wholesaling Houses” which is the business of buying houses in need of major repairs at really low prices and selling them to other “fix and flip” or “buy and hold” investors at wholesale prices. In other words, finding bargains for bargain hunters.

Wholesaling is a great strategy for making quick cash with very low risk and without using any of your own cash, income or credit. Because of this, wholesaling real estate is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get started investing in real estate because anyone can do it with a little training and effort.

If you want to learn more about Wholesaling, watch this Webinar Replay we recorded live with Don DeRosa on April 13th, 2016 where he shared the Wholesaling Strategies you need to succeed and take you step-by-step through the entire wholesale process. Watch the Webinar Replay Now! Read More→

with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaDon DeRosa is a part time real estate investor trainer and mentor and full-time real estate investor who actively buys, sells and holds properties each month for fun, profit and long term cash flow. One of Don’s favorite purchase strategies is to buy houses “Subject-To” the seller’s existing financing on the home instead of having to go to a bank or a hard money lender for funding.

Using this strategy allows Don to buy multiple properties fast, without coming up with all the purchase funds on the front end. This is the perfect purchase strategy for active investors who what to buy, sell and hold pretty houses without having to use their own cash or credit.

Mon, April 11th @ 6PM in Sandy Springs, GA
“Let’s Make A Deal”
Monday, April 11th at 6PM
Hudson Grille, 6317 Roswell Rd, Sandy Springs

Don DeRosaLynn OverallThe “Let’s Make A Deal” group is a subgroup of the Atlanta REIA led by Lynn Overall and Don DeRosa that now meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, GA. The focus of the group is to take new investors through the entire process of repurposing distressed home. Each home is purchased by the group and is completed as a Joint Venture. An experienced rehab investor then leads the group through the rehab process. Risk of loss is mitigated through the use of a consistent system for rehabbing homes, and through the use of experienced contractors. Our goal is to purchase a new property at each of our meetings.

During the meeting, we will identify a property, hard or private money lender, and a contractor. We will finance the deal using a participating money lender, all of whom attend the meetings. Do not leave your checkbooks at home because we buy properties at each meeting.

The sponsors of the “Let’s Make A Deal” group have successfully repurposed homes in California, Texas, Georgia, and Florida. If you are a new investor looking to be a participant in a home rehab project, then this is definitely the group for you. Please keep in mind that everyone who attends “Let’s Make A Deal” is required to participate. The minimum size of the investment will be determined by the purchase price of the home presented at the meeting.

Come on out and check out the meeting. We would love to have you join our team! We are looking forward to learning and earning with you!
