Hurdis has been working in the credit industry for over 20 years and has worked with many major lenders, from Bank of America to Well Fargo, in assisting customers who are trying to purchase a home. With over 2500 completed cases in the past 19 years, The Barrington Financial Group has become a leader in the credit consulting industry. They have always been known for their high integrity standards.
Although, Hurdis does not offer building business credit through his company, he has agreed to meet with us for a special meeting to show us the little tricks of the trade that most people are not aware of in building their credit for business. Hurdis has a vast knowledge in the business credit industry. He will be showing us how to start from scratch, and within 12 months or less, be able to build a solid D&B report, allowing the small business owner to have between $75,000 and $100,000 in business retail credit. This information will be extremely valuable in your real estate investing. It could ultimately make the difference in your success or failure of your business. We look forward to seeing you there.

How to Buy Houses “AS-IS”
with Catherine McFarland at Atlanta REIA West
More and more these days houses are being sold “as is”. Sellers and banks are not accepting contracts with the old protection contract clause of “subject to inspection” or “subject to approval of partner”. These days contract contingencies are rarely being accepted. To get in the game, you have to be able to make a decision and commit to it. Do you really want to buy the house? And are you so confident that you can comfortably put your earnest money on the line?
Conquer your fears and take the guesswork out of buying houses “as-is”. At our next Atlanta REIA West Meeting on Monday, April 25th from 6:30 to 9 PM at the Cherokee Cattle Company at 2710 Canton Road, Marietta, GA (map), long time successful real estate investor, code enforcement and zoning officer, Catherine McFarland, will put your fears. Catherine will show you how you can quickly assess damages and repairs to a house and determine the estimated repair costs.
Atlanta REIA Members can attend for FREE and guests for $5.00. Show up at 6:30 PM to eat and network before the meeting officially starts at 7:00 PM. Late Nite Networking starts at 9 PM in the restaurant lobby. Read more…
