Haves & Wants Speed Marketing Comes to Atlanta REIA Main Meeting Starting January 3rd!

Joe ThompsonAtlanta REIA has asked Joe Thompson of the weekly Have’s and Wants Meeting to host Atlanta REIA’s new Have’s and Wants Speed Marketing Session starting January 3rd at 5:30 PM at the Atlanta REIA Main Monthly Meeting. Our goal for this session is the same as at Joe’s Thursday meetings. Joe says “Were looking to aid our members who HAVE things they no longer wish to have as well as those members who WANT things they have been unable to find through their own networks. Our Mission is to increase our members networks and their ability to access the resources necessary to increase their business.” This session is all about making deals happen, so bring in your have’s and wants and share them with our live audience. It gets even better… we will be video recording the Speed Marketing Session and putting it on AtlantaREIA.com for 24/7 playback. This is a great way to spread the word about what you may have or want with our members, guests, friends and followers online and off. Come join us, bring your deal flyers and share your haves and wants and make deals happen!

Shooting Photos & Video, Uploading & Tagging on Facebook

Social Networking with FacebookBring your digital camera to the Atlanta REIA Meeting and Party and take lots of pictures and videos of you and your friends during the event. After the Speed Marketing Session, Dustin Griffin is going to show you how to upload pictures and videos to Facebook from your PC or cell phone and tag yourself and your friends if you don’t already know how. Using pictures and video is a great way to network and make friends in-person and to continue networking online long after the meeting and party is over.

Atlanta REIA Charter/Founding Member Status Ends in Jan 2011

We founded the Atlanta Real Estate Investors Alliance back in June of this year, had our first meeting on July 5th and have been getting stronger and stronger each and every month thanks to your help and support. Our Charter Membership Drive, which began on October 4th, will end on January 31st, 2011. This does not mean that you can’t still become an Atlanta REIA Member, it just means that you will not forever be classified as a “Charter” or “Founding Member” of the Atlanta Real Estate Investors Alliance. If you do choose to become an official Atlanta REIA Charter Member, it will be a designation and honor that you can put on your “resume” for many, many years to come. We will also be forever listing you on our website, as well as a plaque at our headquarters, as an official Atlanta REIA Founding Member of organization. This way, many years from now, you can look back and say I helped make Atlanta REIA the #1 real estate investor alliance in the South! Join Atlanta REIA Now! Again we thank you for your support!

Yesterday (Sept 9, 2010) I attended Joe Thompson’s weekly “Haves and Wants” Meeting for the first time at the suggestion of Gordon Catts and “Cash Flow” Tom Boyer. They had both told me what a great group this was for meeting players who are actively investing in real estate and doing deals and that is exactly what I found there.

The “Haves and Wants Meeting” is a weekly investor’s brainstorming and deal making jam session held at the 5 Seasons Brewing located at 5600 Roswell Rd inside the Perimeter at the “Prado” and it rocks! They meet EVERY Thursday (except major holidays) from 1:30 PM till approximately 3:00 PM. Joe Thompson is a professional financial adviser who has been leading the group for over 5 years and says “This group is not about real estate education and training. We’ll leave the training to REIA groups like yours. This group is all about doing deals and making money!” This may not be an exact quote from John, but it is close enough. His point was that his group is for players who are doing deals now.  So, if you’re looking to do deals with real players doing real deals right now, this is the group for you. And did I mention they meet in a brewery?!?! How sweet is that?!? The food and beer is great!

Atlanta REIA Main Monthly MeetingYesterday evening, many folks turned out for our Atlanta REIA Meeting despite the holiday, to celebrate would could be their Last Labor Day and I want to personally thank everyone who attended. We really appreciate your support for our new Atlanta real estate investor group.

Several investors I spoke to at the meeting had done quite well in the Atlanta real estate investing market a few years ago, but got burned on a few deals gone bad when the housing market crashed more recently. As a result, they took some time off from real estate investing to recover, regroup and had to get a job to pay the bills. They came out last night to get re-focused and re-energized so they can accomplish great things buying, selling and/or holding real estate once more since housing prices are at an all time low. I commend you all for doing what it takes to get re-engaged and not take a few bad blows as permanent defeat. Just know that Atlanta REIA is here to help you in your future endeavors.
