Atlanta REIA Meeting Updates

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.
