I will explain the entire process to you from start to finish. I will make sure to share those small, but vital details and bring samples from some of my most successful campaigns. Best of all, I will share with you how to automate the whole process so you won’t have to spend your valuable time doing any of it.

You will learn about…

  • Yellow letters and how to automate them
  • What to do to ensure your mail piece gets opened
  • How to cut trough the clutter
  • How to stand out and beat your competition
  • How to get up to 13% response rate
  • What bonuses to offer
  • What to do to make your phone ring after the mail is opened
  • What market to choose
  • How many pieces of mail to send out per person

Atlanta REIA South &
The Multi-Family Investing Group
Focus on the Deal, Focus on the Details
with Attorney Robert “Bob” Witcher
May 6th at 6PM, 3707 Main Street, College Park, GA

Robert WitcherWe are pleased to announce that Attorney Robert “Bob” Witcher will be our special guest speaker this month at the Atlanta REIA South monthly meeting. The meeting will be co-hosted with the Multi-Family Commercial Investing Group and will be held on Wednesday, May 6th at 6PM at Club E Atlanta located at 3707 Main Street in College Park, GA. Bob will be teaching us about understanding the details that can make you money vs details that can cost you money.

As a real estate attorney, Bob has just about seen it all. He knows the ins and outs of what it takes to make a successful real estate transaction happen. Even the most seasoned investor can get comfortable with real estate transactions and may get sloppy with the details from time to time, which in turn can hurt your wallet.

Even if you have been around the closing table a few times, you won’t want to miss Bob as he shares examples of events that he sees in his practice on a regular basis. He will share with you some obvious, avoidable mistakes that he has seen made by newer and experienced investors alike.

Wouldn’t you rather learn from others mistakes instead of making them yourself and collecting smaller checks? If you will be just a little more precise with the details that Bob will teach you about, you will be able to walk away from the closing table with LARGER checks!

This presentation will be equally great for beginning and experienced investors. This will also be a great opportunity for investor who have only worked with Single Family Residences to get a glimpse at the exciting world of Multi-Family and Commercial Investing.

At the meeting you will learn…

  • Details that can derail or delay a closing
  • Why you should read the schedules in the title policy
  • Common mistakes that can cost you dearly
  • What happens to a tenant in a foreclosure
  • How a good attorney can protect your interests and make you more money
  • And Much, Much More!

Bob Witcher is a seasoned attorney with a long standing client base of investors and private lenders. Over the years, Bob has represented clients in a wide variety of situations impacting investors. His presentation “Focus on the Deal, Focus on the Details” will draw from his real world experiences working with investors on a daily basis.

Tue, April 28th @ 6:30PM – Peachtree City, GA
Peachtree City EPIC Group
How to Invest in Real Estate
Without Paying Taxes

with Special Guest, Scott Maurer
April 28th, 6:30PM, Green Ginger Asian Fusion
200 Market Place Connector, Peachtree City, GA

Scott MaurerCome join us at our next Peachtree City EPIC Group meeting on Tuesday, April 28th at 6:30PM at the Green Ginger Asian Fusion Restaurant located at 200 Market Place Connector in Peachtree City, GA. Our special guest speaker will be Scott Maurer, Director of Business Development for Advanta IRA. Scott will be sharing his expertise on how to use a self-directed IRA to invest in real estate and grow your wealth tax free.

Many investors don’t know that it’s even possible to use retirement funds when investing in real estate. Most IRA accounts are invested with banks and brokerage firms who do not allow for this type of investment within their portfolios, but IRS regulations certainly allow for many types of alternative investments. Self-directed IRAs allow individuals to use their IRA funds to purchase rental property, rehabs/flips, private mortgages, tax liens, and much, much more. By using a self-direct IRA, an investor can utilize this “new” bucket of cash to acquire assets that they can better control and thus drive better returns to their IRA. Best of all, the gains from these investments go back to the IRA without any tax implications.

At the meeting you will learn:

  • What types of accounts are eligible to be self-directed
  • How you can move money from current IRA custodians without worrying about tax implications
  • What the rules are pertaining to prohibited transactions and disqualified persons
    (In short, what you can’t do with your self-directed IRA)
  • How the process works from contract to closing, and how the earnings come back to the IRA on a tax-deferred or tax-free basis
  • How to obtain “checkbook control” over your IRA for the purpose of real estate investing
  • And Much, Much More!

Scott has worked for Advanta since 2006, and is a frequent speaker on the topic of self-directed IRAs and using retirement funds to invest in real estate and other alternative assets. Scott is also an attorney and a member of The Florida Bar.

How To Become the LEADER in Your Market and Gain
“Instant Celebrity Status”
with Expert Marketer, TC Bradley

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

TC BradleyAtlanta REIA is excited to announce that TC Bradley will be our special guest speaker this month at our main monthly meeting on Monday, May 4th at 5PM at Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA. TC will be teaching how YOU can become a leading expert in your field and dominate your market, backed by the credibility of being a #1 best-selling author!

Credibility is extremely important to establish in the real estate investing business. With Google now easily within everyone’s reach, it is even more important to establish yourself as someone who knows what they are doing and to set yourself apart from the rest of your competitors. How great would it be to be able to confidently tell a seller to search for your name and for them to be able to see that you are considered to be a leading expert and #1 best-selling author in your field? Surely anyone can write a book, find a publisher, and promote their book around the clock so that it lands on #1 best seller lists right? That sounds like a lot of work…

This video is from TC and our friends at Florida Gulf Coast REIA

TC will show you how to streamline that process and establish instant credibility almost overnight! A process that used to take years to accomplish, TC can now accomplish in just a few short months. TC has cracked the media code and can help your business soar to new heights and make a lot more money with just a few simple strategies. TC can also help you and your business achieve national recognition through media outlets such as Forbes.com, Huffington Post, Business Insider, and Entrepreneur.com. He will also get your news releases syndicated with dozens of top media sites such as ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX affiliates.

“My media clients NEVER compete on price and always charge premium pricing for their services…people today want to do business with the LEADER the EXPERT AUTHORITY and that is what I deliver” – TC Bradley

RSVP Now!

Monday evening, TC Bradley, Founder of InstantCelebrityStatus.com, will be sharing the details on how YOU can become a Co-Author of a Best Selling Book within the next 60 – 90 days! That’s right, less than 90 days!

A Co-Author book is where you supply 1 chapter of a book and still enjoy the benefits of being a Co-Author of a Best Selling book, and ALL the benefits that come with that.

Best Selling AuthorBecoming a Published Author not only separates you from the “competition”, but becoming a Best Selling Author puts you in another Universe…

TC will also address how to be seen on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and other big name authority media websites to further enhance your Leadership Credibility.

What some of T.C’s clients are saying:

“TC Bradley is a man of his word. When he says he will do something you, can mark his word, it will be done and done with the utmost highest level of integrity and professionalism. Working with TC during our most recent #1 Amazon Best Selling Book Campaign was an awesome experience. TC definitely operates on a very high level and expects every book he publishes to be a Best Seller because he is playing on the highest levels of perfection and really would not settle for less. There is no doubt that we will be doing many more books with TC and we have absolutely no hesitation in referring his services to anyone that wants to work with the best! Without a doubt, TC is a man of greatness that will bring out the greatness in all that work with him.” ~ Stephanie & Jon Iannotti, 2 time – Amazon #1 Best Selling Authors

“3 Words: This Guy Delivers. Whether it is creating a business website, promotional video, or making his client a best-selling author, TC Bradley will tell you what he is going to do for you and then he does it. I would recommend TC’s marketing services for any serious entrepreneur or business.” ~ Matthew Fitzharris, Attorney at The Law Offices of Matthew J. Fitzharris

“I have since traveled around the world doing seminars and billing 10 Million + per year average. In one seminar, attended by 240 people, I closed 1 Million Dollars in sales in one day, truly, earning the title, “The Million Dollar Closer!” This simply was not going to happen without TC Bradley’s intervention in my life. He single handedly put me on the map, I listened to him and ran with it, to the bank. TC is impeccable with his work, his word, and his being.” ~ Stephen J. Young, Million Dollar Closer

You won’t want to miss your chance to hear TC speak about this exciting opportunity!

We look forward to seeing you Monday night at the Atlanta REIA Meeting on May 4th at 5PM at Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA.

Buyers – They Come In Many Flavors For Your Deals!
with Frank Iglesias

RSVP on Meetup.com
Please RSVP on Meetup.com if you have a meetup account.

Atlanta Wholesalers GroupBuyers… some of your best friends as a wholesaler!

You have to have them since you need someone to wholesale too. But they come in so many flavors.

Some want this, some want that. Some want it all. Some are happy with the basics. Some of them don’t want the kitchen sink and some of them expect two sinks. Some of them say your numbers are high, some say they are low. Some love your deals, some don’t. Some want rehabs, some want cash flow.

And on and on and on it seems are the reasons why they buy or don’t buy.

At this meetup, let’s get them in some buckets so as you go into your deals, you know who your target Buyer is and arguably as important, who it is not.

We will also talk about how to work with Buyers to get them to make offers so that if you don’t have a deal but do have an interested Buyer, you have the opportunity to create one.

Also in our last meeting deal analysis, we had some interesting deals with some more unique points so bring yours and let’s talk about them on the big screen.

And do bring your deals! There are active Buyers such as myself in the room looking for deals to buy each and every month. Many wholesale deals and transactional loans have come out of the group so come expecting to make money!

Frank IglesiasMy name is Frank Iglesias. Come join us on Tuesday, April 21st at 7PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs as we network, do what is now our standard deal analysis at every meeting and then we will dive into our topic for the evening!

This Atlanta Wholesalers group is primarily for wholesalers who are serious about the business and not just “trying” Real Estate out. Frank started this group to work with other wholesalers who are serious about building their business using the utmost of honesty and integrity. We are looking forward to exploring how we can grow together in our local market. We hope you will join us!

Atlanta REIA North Meeting
Researching Properties & Marketing to Off Market Sellers
with Chuck Phillips
April 15th, 6:30PM
1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, GA

RSVP Now!

Chuck PhillipsWe are excited to announce that Chuck Phillips with CRS Data will be the guest speaker at this month’s Atlanta REIA North Meeting. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 15th at 6:30PM located at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, GA. Chuck will be showing us how to use CRS Data’s proprietary software to find and organize all the important property information you need so you can make informed decisions in all your real estate investing transactions.

CRS Data is a leading consolidator of information gleaned from public records provides data to MLS Services, Realtors, Appraisers, Banks/Lenders, Government Agencies, as well as investors.

Chuck has worked with Courthouse Retrieval System (CRS) for over 11 years. He has worked with all types of individuals from Investors, Realtors, Mortgage Companies, Banks, Surveyors, and Developers on how to utilize public record information. He is licensed to teach “Using Public Records to Enhance Your Business” by the Tennessee Realtors Association in TN. Public records can be used to answer the following questions:

  • Where do you find off market properties?
  • How do you get in touch with people who don’t know they want to sell?
  • How do you become the only buyer?
  • How do you get contact information on a vacant property?
  • Where do you get the information to become the neighborhood expert?
  • Where do you get a mailing list of absentee owners?
  • How do you get a list of owners of multiple properties?
  • And much much more.

Public records are free to look at from state or county sites using the program provided by that organization. Most of the time all you can obtain is the Owners Name, Address, Tax Information, Parcel Number, Year/Effective Year Built, Lat/Long Information if the county has GIS maps, etc. The program from CRS, with the various Search Filters, allows you to sift through this data to arrive at the results you would like. If you are looking for out of state owners with a certain type of improvement, square footage, year built in a certain zip/street, this program can filter out that information. If you need a home with an existing mortgage, this information can be found.

All of this is public information, but the Engine CRS has with the various filters makes it very easy to find and export to Excel for marketing purposes. If you find a home and need to know the comps around the home, this can easily be found based on date, distance, and time of sale. This is another feature any investor needs depending on the type of exit strategy they have for the property.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to save yourself TONS of time researching properties! RSVP Now to secure your seat. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

RSVP Now!
