Creating Quick Cash Now & Long Term Cash Flow by Buying Notes Without Using Your Own Cash or Credit with Donna Bauer

Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge. This month,
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $20 or Pay $25 at the Door.

Donna BauerWe are excited to announce that Donna Bauer will be our special guest trainer this month at Atlanta REIA on Monday, May 1st at 5:00 PM at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia located at 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Rd, Atlanta, GA. Whether you are a conservative investor or a risk taker, buying notes puts you in control of your real estate transactions and your personal wealth planning.

Donna Bauer, nationally known as The Original NoteBuyer®, is one of the nation’s most recognized subject matter experts on Discounted Notes, Seller Financing, and Distressed Mortgages. For over two decades, Donna’s exclusive strategies have produced stunning results regardless of economic conditions.

As thousands of successful investors have discovered, Donna’s approach to real estate investing is brilliantly suited to today’s unique market and the shift toward alternative forms of financing.

During her 90 minute presentation, Donna will teach you how to…

  • Create quick cash and long term cash flow with 3 Basic Note Buying Strategies—WITHOUT your own cash or credit
  • Evaluate 4 critical areas before buying a note
  • Create an ‘ultra safe’ deal, even in a down market
  • Buy ‘part of a note’ for super high returns and safety
  • Create SMART seller financing for maximum cash out later
  • Buy and sell properties WITHOUT ever needing a bank

Plus, you’ll learn how to:

  • Use defaulted bank loans as a backdoor to acquiring properties well below market value
  • Use defaulted bank loans to create super high yields by modifying the mortgage and allowing the homeowner to stay in the house — a real win/win!

Donna will be quick to tell you that in her life time, she has never seen so many amazing opportunities with notes. With deals galore in the market place and bank financing hard to come by, seller financed notes have once again become the rage. This creates an awesome opportunity in the secondary market to make huge profits without all of the hassles of the proverbial “tenants, trash and toilets,” not to mention without using your own cash or credit. There’s no doubt, buying and selling other people’s seller-financed notes is the quickest, easiest, safest way to CASH IN on today’s fantastic real estate market!

Donna began her note buying career over 25 years ago in search of a vehicle that would offer her financial security without sacrificing cherished time with her four children. Working from her dining room table, as she began closing discounted note deals across the country, she realized that she had found a gold mine! Now, with well over a thousand deals under her belt, her peers consider her to be the foremost subject matter expert on note buying, while her students acclaim her as being a gifted, inspiring mentor.

If you are serious about building wealth in today’s real estate market, you don’t want to miss this presentation! RSVP Now!

As always, Atlanta REIA Members can attend the event at no charge and Non-Members can Register Online for $20 or pay $25.00 at the door. Be sure to bring your business cards and flyers and join us for an evening of real estate deals, vendors, networking, education and fun! See you there! RSVP Now!

May 1st Meeting Before the Meeting
with Don DeRosa

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 1st 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!

Why Wholesaling
& Why Now?!?!

With Special Guest, Mr. Tycoon

Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $20 or Pay $25 at the Door.

Wahid Shakur aka Mr TycoonWe are excited to announce that Mr. Tycoon will be our special guest trainer this month at Atlanta REIA on Monday, April 3rd at 5:00 PM at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia located at 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Rd, Atlanta, GA. At the meeting, Mr. Tycoon will be teaching our members and guests “Why Wholesaling & Why Now?!”

You’ve probably hear that wholesaling houses is all about “finding bargain properties and passing them along to bargain hunters at a great price”. You’ve probably also heard that “you make your money in real estate when you buy”. At the meeting, Mr. Tycoon is going to show you “when you wholesale houses, you make your money – in cash – before you buy!” He’s also going to show you why finding bargain properties is probably the most important skill you can ever possibly learn as a real estate investor.

During his 90 minute presentation, Mr. Tycoon will teach you…

  • What it means to wholesale a house
  • How wholesaling can be done with very little money, training and absolutely no cred
  • How to wholesale houses part time and make a full time income
  • Answers to your questions and so much more!

Mr. Tycoon will teach strategies that will enable you to…

  • Pay off all your debt and past due bills
  • Start building (or re-building) your retirement account so you never have to worry about running out of money during retirement
  • Quit your job and live your life in freedom
  • How to get on the fast track to wealth

Wahid Shakur, aka “Mr. Tycoon”, is an internationally renowned Motivational Speaker, Personal Development Coach, Investment Real Estate Guru and Entrepreneur of Success. Mr. Tycoon is legendary for his “tough but fair” deal-making and negotiation skills. His bestselling book, “Success Is Not A Secret, It’s A System,” extracts the lessons he learned on the road to building his successful real estate investment company and personal fortune, and is the “must-have” guidebook to achieving financial and personal success. Read more about Mr. Tycoon >>

Come spend 90 minutes with Mr. Tycoon at the Atlanta REIA Meeting on Monday, April 3rd at 5:00 PM and learn how to get started wholesaling houses or how to take your existing wholesaling business to the next level. You do not want to miss out on this career changing information! We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

The High Tech Home Buyers Creative Deal Makers Subgroup
Apr 3rd Meeting Before the Meeting
with Don DeRosa

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, April 3rd from 5PM to 6PM at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting 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!
