Joe Thompson’s Haves & Wants Weekly Investor Brainstorming and Deal Making Jam SessionPosted on September 10, 2010 by
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!
There was a wide variety of people in attendance with very diverse real estate backgrounds and experience. There were people there with single family deals, multifamily deals, mobile home parks, subdivisions, vacation rentals, commercial deals, apartments… you name it. There were people there who provide support to real estate investors such as property managers, agents, remodelers and renovators, lenders, small business advisers, grant writers, contractors, credit repair and loan modification specialists and much more.
One important thing I noticed that Tom and Gordon had alluded to was that most of the guys and gals who attend this meeting were players. They were not newbies, but seasoned investors with years of experience doing deals right now and making money in today’s economy. These folks attend this meeting every week looking to partner on these deals, sell these deals, buy these deals, to fund these deals, to get help with these deals and the like. If you’re looking to make deals happen, this is a great place to start and a meeting you should make a point to attend on a regular basis to build your buyers list and millionaire Rolodex. Thanks again Joe for the great meeting!
