Mon, April 6th at 5:00 PM in Norcross, GA
Atlanta REIA Main Monthly Meeting
& Vendor Trade Show
April 6th @ Atlanta Unity, Norcross, GA
Learn How to ACT On or REACT To Any Deal
With Special Guest, Jon Iannotti

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

Jon and Stephanie IannottiWe are excited to announce that Jon Iannotti will be our special guest trainer this month at Atlanta REIA on Monday, April 6th at 5PM at Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA. Jon will be teaching us about how his CATS can help YOU do more deals by giving you the tools needed to structure profitable transactions that others would normally pass on.

CATS?!?!… No, we are not referring to his kitty cats… Jon and his wife Stephanie have created a real estate system they call CATS (Complete Agreeable Terms System). The CATS system is currently helping ordinary, everyday investors become extraordinary investors by giving them the tools they need to do deals that 99% of other investors don’t even realize are deals. Deals that are upside down. Deals where the seller wants full price and all cash. Deals where the seller is behind on payments. All types of deals you might normally throw in the trash.

Knowledge is the key and what you don’t know about how to structure creative transactions can definitely hurt your wallet. Imagine knowing how to take a lead most other investors would toss away and turn it into a profitable deal that could make you thousands in a very, very short period of time!

During his 90 minute presentation, Jon will teach you how to…

  • Make money without using your own credit, money or contractors
  • Turn a dud of a deal into a profitable deal
  • What do do when a seller wants full retail and all cash
  • Profit from houses that are upside down
  • Do as many deals per month as you desire
  • Make a minimum of $5,000 per deal
  • Get the benefits of ownership without actually owning the house
  • Put your entire business on “Cruise Control”
  • All this and much, much more!

Jon and his wife Stephanie have over 30 years combined Real Estate investing and teaching experience. They have over 2000 creative deals under their belt and are considered one of the best in the industry. Jon and Stephanie created ACTS (Agreeable Contract Terms System) for when the seller says “Yes” to terms. They created REACT (Reverse Engineered Agreeable Contract Terms) when the seller says “No” to terms and wants full retail value and all cash. They have now combined these two systems into CATS (the Complete Agreeable Terms System) to have best of both worlds. Now they can make offers that have a high likelihood of being accepted on any of the leads that come across their desk and you can too!

Come spend 90 minutes with Jon at the Atlanta REIA Meeting on Monday, April 6th at 5PM where he will explain how to turn seemingly dead property leads into profitable deals. You certainly will not want to miss out on this career changing information! We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Atlanta Area Wholesalers Group
Meets Tuesday, March 17th at 7PM
Hudson Grille, 6317 Roswell Rd, Sandy Springs, GA

Leveraging Virtual Assistants to
Grow Your Wholesaling Business!

Frank IglesiasVirtual Assistants…

So often spoken about…

So often misunderstood…

So often they just don’t work out as well as we’ve heard they would…

Life on the beach with your VAs doing it all… If it was only that simple!

We are talking the wholesaling process from A-Z and how VAs fit in to that plan. And one hint… they CAN do more than you think so you can quit trying to do everything yourself all the time. I am amazed at how many investors still do too many “minimum wage activities” in their business. VAs can be a powerful asset to your business if you use them the right way.

My name is Frank Iglesias. Come join us on Tuesday, March 17th 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 this often talked about and usually misunderstood subject!

Atlanta Area WholesalersThis Atlanta Area 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!

Frank IglesiasIf you want to be a Wholesaler, you need to come to the Atlanta REIA North Meeting on Wednesday, March 18th from 6:30PM to 9:00PM at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, Georgia as Frank Iglesias, an experienced Wholesaler, will be showing how to analyze wholesale deals and determine if you have a deal or a dud. Frank will take us through the process of deciding if a deal makes dollars and sense. If you bring bad deals to cash buyers more than a time or two, they are not likely to take you seriously nor consider your deals in the future.

Frank leads the Atlanta Area Wholesalers Group that meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month and often will spend an entire evening analyzing potential wholesale deals. This month at the Atlanta REIA North meeting we’re going to do the same thing, so BRING YOUR DEALS!!!

Last month at the North Group, Frank spoke about running your business as a business. This month we have invited him back to help you learn how to accurately analyze potential wholesale deals. We are excited to have him cover this important topic which you are sure to enjoy and benefit from.

You will learn…

  • Is there enough money in the deal to wholesale it?
  • How do I analyze a deal so that it meets my cash buyer’s purchase criteria?
  • What should I say about repair costs?
  • Is this property in location where investors are willing to buy and hold or fix and flip?
  • Can I sell this to a rehabber?
  • Is this a property for a buy and hold investor?
  • And much, much more!

Frank Iglesias will be analyzing actual deals at the Atlanta REIA North Meeting on Wednesday, March 18th from 6:30PM to 9:00PM at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, Georgia, so BRING YOUR DEALS and COME JOIN US!

Mon, March 23rd @ 6:30 PM in Marietta, GA
Atlanta REIA Wild Wild West
Make Me An Offer I Can’t Refuse!
March 23rd with Bill Cook

Bill CookA common mistake made by real estate investors is to forget why they knock on a seller’s door. By “forget,” I don’t mean the seller answers the door and the investor stands there with a stupid, lost look on his face. I mean the investor doesn’t understand the basic objective of why he’s there at the seller’s home.

Do you know the ultimate objective of meeting with sellers? I mean, why are you there? What’s the purpose? Is it to be given a tour of the seller’s house? The reason an investor knocks on a seller’s door is to get to the kitchen table. You want to get to the kitchen table so you can ask Pete Fortunato’s famous question: “Why are you selling such a nice house like this?” The answer Pete’s question allows you to get a better understanding of what the seller wants and why he wants it. Having this information allows you to structure an offer around the seller’s unique wants and needs.

Come join us at the Atlanta REIA Wild Wild West Group on Monday, March 23rd at 6:30PM at Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta, where Bill Cook will show YOU how to take the “what” and “why” you get from the seller at the kitchen table, and construct a win-win offer that helps the seller get from the uncomfortable situation they’re in, to a situation where they’re more comfortable and willing to do business with you.

Remember: If your offers don’t help your sellers to improve their current situation, they’ll turn your offer down flat! So remember the ultimate objective of why you meet with sellers: To make them a written offer!

If you want to know how to make offers that can’t be refused, you need to be at this event!

Join us and you will learn:

  • When Should You Make An Offer?
  • How Do You Make An Offer?
  • What Is The Difference Between A Contract And An Offer?
  • What Is The Best Kind Of Offer Paperwork To Use?
  • How You Can Make 5 Written Offers A Day.
  • And much, much more.

Bill and Kim Cook are a husband and wife real estate investing team. They live on a horse ranch in Adairsville GA, and have been investing in real estate since 1995. Their investment portfolio is made up of single-family rental homes, mobile homes, a small mobile home park, plus notes and options. They built their business simply by knocking on sellers doors and making offers the seller can’t refuse.

Late Nite Networking After West Meeting

The Onsite Renovation Group
Meets Tuesday, March 17th at NOON
576 John Wesley Dobbs Ave, Atlanta 30312

Onsite Renovation GroupThis Month on Tuesday, March 17th at NOON at 576 John Wesley Dobbs Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30312, the Onsite group will meet at a property where we are doing a new construction. We have seen this project at previous meetings when the house was in different phases of the construction. It is now very close to being finished. Sheetrock is done, doors, tile and trim are being installed. Join us Tuesday to see the amazing progress since we last met there two months ago. The project is in the Old Fourth Ward, which is a neighborhood that has suddenly become hot because of the proximity to the Beltline and the Ponce City Market development in the historic Sears building. Don’t miss this meeting that should prove to be very informative on some new topics we haven’t addressed before!

The Onsite Renovation Group, led by Aaron McGinnis of Craftbuilt Properties, is an educational and networking group that focuses on the acquisition, renovation and retail resale (fix and flip) of single family residential homes inside the I-285 perimeter and the in-town neighborhoods. The purpose of this group is to allow both new and experienced rehabbers and investors to meet, network and share knowledge and experience with “hands on” access to real property. The Onsite Renovation Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at NOON at an active renovation site, build site or rental property which will vary from month to month. There is currently no charge to attend these meeting.

Is It A Deal or No Deal? with Don DeRosa

With St. Patrick’s Day upon us and lots of symbols in the air about luck, there are some that really do believe that finding a deal is all about luck. Let Don DeRosa show you how to create that “luck” any day of the year. We will have time to examine two leads and determine if they are a deal or a dud. Please bring us leads that you are working on, we will randomly choose them, and let Don show you if there is in fact a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow!

Shaun McCloskeyI want you to stop everything you’re doing right now and mark your calendar for Monday, March 2nd for 5PM. On this date at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting, special guest Shaun McCloskey will be presenting what’s likely to be the most life changing 90 minutes of your entire life!

Shaun is going to share with you how just about everything you have ever learned about investing in the past has been wrong. Well, let me clarify… It’s not entirely wrong, but even the right things in the wrong order is a recipe for disaster.

How can we make such a bold statement?

Forget all the hype and glam about being a real estate investor for a moment. Yes, it’s true that real estate can be the most profitable small business on earth! But it can also lead to trading a full time job for another full time job. Most real estate investors go into the business for themselves with dreams of living life according to their definition of ultimate freedom. Sadly, very few real estate investors ever get there. Most work harder as a full time investor than they did back when they had a full time job. At least with a full time job, when 5:00 came every day, they were able to clock out and go home. But today, most investors work more hours than ever, and even when they aren’t working their brain is still at work.

If you’re an experienced investor, does this sound familiar?

If you’re new to real estate investing, it may not sound familiar yet, but don’t let that scare you. There’s a right way to run an extremely profitable flipping business and there’s the way most of the guru’s are out there teaching. Shaun is about to flip your world upside, showing you how to create an insanely profitable real estate flipping business while still honoring the freedom and time to have fun with all of the money you’ll make!

How are we going to do this, you ask?  Read More→

Shaun McCloskeyHi, my name is Shaun McCloskey. I suggest you grab a cup of coffee, sit down and read this slowly and carefully.

I don’t say this often. I don’t say this lightly… and I rarely use a strong language, like “you MUST” get involved into some aspects of investing.

However, this time it’s warranted. Especially, if you realize the wealth building potential of our current market place and dream of making A LOT of money FAST.

Where We Are Now

What we have today in our foreclosure markets is BIGGER and more widespread than what we had during the collapse and ensuing Savings and Loans bailout of the late 80s and early 90s. If you remember that time period, you probably also remember the media portraying the economy as being “a down market” and the real estate industry was “doom and gloom.”

If you were investing during that time and knew how to play the game, however, you know how profitable that was. Real estate fortunes were made over 2-3 year period.

Once this period found it’s end the opportunity was gone. Real estate returned to its normal balanced state.

The MOST important aspect of what’s going on today is the UNUSUAL and unlikely forces that are getting involved to put pressure on lenders holding REOs (repossessed properties).

This hasn’t happened before. Not like this… Read More→

How to Make a Staggering Income Flipping Pre-Foreclosures!
With Special Guest, Shaun McCloskey

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

No doubt about it – foreclosure properties are the wave of the present – and the future. The truth is, they’re not going anywhere any time soon. There are endless desperate sellers right in your own back yard who would LOVE to have you fix their problem by negotiating a pennies-on-the-dollar payoff with their banks – and don’t care one bit that you’ll make tens of thousands of dollars in the process.

Shaun McCloskeyThe problem is, most short sale education makes it sound like every deal you do will be quick, easy, painless, and successful – and according to Shaun McCloskey (and many other real life short sale investors we know), that’s just not the whole truth. Shaun is one of the few short sale/pre-foreclosure experts you’ll ever meet who’s honest about the pros and cons – and tells you how to meet the challenges of this strategy head-on. It’s Shaun’s first time at Atlanta REIA and he’ll explain:

  • Why some short sale deals are no-brainer money-makers and some are a complete waste of your time – and how to tell the difference BEFORE you spend a bunch of time “negotiating” deals that should be left for dead.
  • Why good systems are key to working multiple short sales at once – and why working multiple deals at once is more profitable and easier than doing one at a time.
  • How to identify the right sellers, properties, and lenders to work with, so you can make a 6-figure income negotiating short sales this year!
  • And much, much more!

Shaun McCloskey is a full time real estate investor located in St. Louis, MO specializing in short sales and pre-foreclosure property acquisition. He has successfully bought and sold over 300 properties since 2003 and loves the every day thrills of the residential real estate business.

Come learn about making short sales smart and simple at the Atlanta REIA Meeting on Monday, March 2nd at 5PM at Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA.

BonusSPECIAL BONUS: Shaun also has a very special bonus for those who attend our meeting while supplies last. He will be giving away a copy of his Special Short Sale Wealth Report on The TOP 9 Mistakes Investors Make Regarding Short Sales” so you can avoid making them or catching yourself when you do.

RSVP Now!

Want to learn even more about short sales and pre-foreclosures? Checkout Shaun’s Full Day Pre-Foreclosure & Lifeonaire Workshop on Saturday, March 14th where he’ll show you how to have a profitable short sale business and a real life!
