Bob MasseyOn January 7th at 3 PM at Total Wine & More located at 124 Perimeter Center W (see map), I am giving a presentation that you don’t want to miss. I am going to be going over the details of a $875,000 short sale I just closed that most investors would have abandoned months ago. Instead of giving up, I modified my strategies and ended up making more than if everything had gone according to the original plan! We are also going to be discussing mortgage fraud, securitization issues, and foreclosures. The banks have been defrauding homeowners for years, and we now have a way to use that to fight back against the banks and do some pretty incredible deals while helping underwater homeowners across the country.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take an extremely successful real estate investor out to dinner?  What questions would you ask them?  What would you want to know?  What are you just dying to find out that will make a significant impact on your investing?  What is it that will help you make a lot more $$$$ in 2013?  What difference would that make for you in your business and your life?

Well guess what?  I’ve already arranged this opportunity FOR YOU, and it happens this coming Monday, December 17th at Wild Wild West Subgroup of Atlanta REIA! 

Listen up, folks, this is big– I got not one, not two, but THREE outstanding investors to accept my invitation to share with you on Monday, Dec. 17 at 6:30pm.  Our panel is made up of three of the most highly respected and successful investors right here in Hot’lanta! We have Steve Jordan, Johnna Lodge, and Robert Gilstrap in our line-up, who together have a combined total of more than 70 years of hard-core, in the trenches, real world investing and landlording experience!  They have all agreed to answer your questions, help solve your dilemmas, and offer up their invaluable knowledge and expertise to you this Monday…and the best part is, you get to ask them whatever questions you have on your mind when you join us!

Jump ahead of the crowd! Email me your questions RIGHT NOW to: lesliemathismentor@yahoo.com and I’ll guarantee* that your questions will be answered first, before we take questions from the audience on Monday! I must receive your email no later than 11am on Saturday Dec. 15 for this guarantee to be in effect. So go ahead and send it to me NOW!

You won’t want to miss your chance to spend some quality time with these seasoned professionals for sure.  The definition of ‘wisdom’ is learning from other people’s experiences.  Come get very wise with us, as it’s a rare opportunity indeed to get this kind of success and experience together in one room and have open access to them.  How much time can they cut off your learning curve?  What issues have you had that you’ve been beating your head up against the wall trying to solve, that they can easily solve for you?  If you don’t ask, you won’t know!

Take a break from your holiday shopping to do list and come join us at West Subgroup on Monday at the www.cherokeecattlecompany.com on Canton Road in Marietta.  We’ll have some holiday cheer, great food, and best of all, top notch sharing by these incredible folks.  Give yourself a gift this holiday season and come join us.  You’ll be glad you did!

The Wild Wild West Subgroup of Atlanta REIA meets this coming Monday, Dec. 17 at the Cherokee Cattle Company.  Atlanta REIA Members are FREE, guests are just $5 per person.  See you at the ranch!  The schedule is:

David TilneyWe are excited to announce Property Management Expert, David Tilney, will be our guest speaker at Atlanta REIA on November 5th at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia Hotel located at 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Road in Atlanta, GA. David has been involved in the real estate business since 1978 and property management since 1981. He has invested in rentals, notes, foreclosures, tax sales, IRS liens and leasehold interests. David has become the “go to” guy for management of single family homes and loves being a landlord.

As a landlord or a potential landlord, do you have questions on any of the following issues?

  • Security deposits
  • Property showings
  • Rent collection and late fees
  • Lease vs. month-to-month
  • Property inspections
  • Fair Housing
  • Re-keying locks
  • “Make-ready’s” and capital improvements
  • Pets
  • Applicant screening & background checks
  • Rent increases
  • Evictions
  • Tenant property damage

If you answered “Yes” to any of these issues, be sure to attend the Atlanta REIA Meeting on November 5th and be part of the discussion! David will answer questions, brainstorm problems and force you to think about your rental business in new ways. He will share ideas about how to increase income, decrease expenses and generate more free time.

Here’s what a few local real estate experts have to say about David Tilney…

“If you are going to be successful in real estate investing, you need to have good landlording skills. David Tilney has the best landlording system around and is well worth learning, if you are a serious investor.” – Dyches Boddiford

David is a wonderful teacher… a real been-there-and-done-that landlording guy. He teaches like no one else. His ideas are unique. David will help you become a better, smarter, more successful landlord.” – Bill Cook

Bob MasseyBob Massey here, and I hope to see you this Monday, September 10th at 3pm for the Atlanta REIA Foreclosure Subgroup meeting. At this meeting I am going to be covering some critical information you need to be a successful investor in this crazy market.

We’re going to be talking about the foreclosure process, short sales, and beyond. We’ll explain both the foreclosure and short sale processes from top to bottom, including what strategies are working best today, and the key mistakes that will absolutely kill your deals.

We’re also going to be explaining the securitization racket that has defrauded our entire country. Not only will you learn more about the banking system than most attorneys and judges in the U.S., but you will learn how to use this information to do some incredible deals. Chances are you’re going to learn how the banks defrauded you on your mortgage!

I’m really looking forward to seeing you at the meeting Monday, September 10, at 3pm!

The Short Sale & Foreclosure Group (SSF), hosted by Bob Massey, will have it’s quarterly meeting on Monday, September 10th at 3 PM in a private meeting room at Total Wine & More located at 124 Perimeter Center W (see map).

Don DeRosaAtlanta REIA is excited to announce that our very own Don DeRosa will be our keynote speaker on Monday, September 10th at our next Atlanta REIA Main Meeting to be held at 5:30 PM at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia Hotel located at 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Road in Atlanta, GA just off I-285N across the street from Perimeter Mall.

As many of you know, Don is a part time real estate trainer and mentor and full-time real estate investor who actively buys, sells and holds properties each month for huge profits and long term cash flow. Join us on Sept 10th and Don will share with you, many of his Real Estate Insider Secrets and the state-of-the-art tools he uses to evaluate deals and make them work – for him and for the seller.

As he unveils his Insider Secrets, he’ll share with you the buying and selling strategies that are working for him right now, in August/September 2012.  Yes, he’ll show you the secret tools and strategies he uses every day to create profitable deals, even when there appears to be nothing to work with. Don will show you how to create an abundance of deals to choose from!  Plus he’ll show you how he gets the information to evaluate a deal, wherever is he, so you’ll never waste time with leads you shouldn’t spend time on and beat other investors to the most profitable deals.

Don will walk through real world, actual deals, to demonstrate step-by-step how to apply these strategies, tools and techniques.  In fact, bring your deals, and he’ll show you exactly how to evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller, and get the paperwork done almost instantly and without any of the hard work you normally do to get your deals done. 

By the end of the presentation, you’ll know –

  • How to evaluate any lead and decide whether this is a winner for you and how much money you’ll make before you make your offer
  • How to combine buying strategies and exit strategies – that work right now, in 2012 – to effortlessly make a deal work you
  • The Secret to creating passive income deals of $350 + per month without any of your own money and with NO management on your part.
  • How to structure a deal in less than 10 minutes, so that you make a minimum of $20,000 on it, choosing from multiple strategies
  • How to become a “mindreader,” to find exactly what the seller’s hot buttons are so you can craft a deal the seller is dying to take
  • How to use Don’s Green means ‘GO’, Red means ‘NO’ tools to negotiate for you, so you never let your emotions talk you into making a bad deal!
