What’s Happening at Atlanta REIA – Week of June 20, 2011Posted on June 27, 2011 by
This week we have several excellent subgroups for intermediate to advanced investors such as Movers & Shakers, Cash Cow Commercial Group and Haves & Wants. We also have a webcast on how to get involved with Atlanta REIA (New Member Orientation) as well as a Technology Workshop with Don DeRosa on how to use the iPad. We will also be releasing a few Member Only Webcast Replays this week as well.
Do you remember the 1st time home buyer tax credit and how many buyers came out of the woodwork to take advantage? Remember how the buyers disappeared when it went away? Remember the Nehemiah Program? What would you think if I told you there are programs out there NOW that will provide $5,000 to $7500 in down payment assistance and that there are several programs that will provide lots more. There is even a “nothing down program” available in select areas and you do not even have to be a veteran to qualify. Our mystery guest will be discussing this and more at the June meeting of the Movers & Shakers Lunch Meeting. Valuable handouts and contact information will be provided if you attend the meeting.
Movers and Shakers is an educational and networking group led by Gordon Catts that is designed to meet the interests of intermediate and advanced investors rather than new investors. The group meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at the 5 Seasons Brewing located at 3655 Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta, GA. The doors open at 11:00 AM and the program officially starts at 11:30 AM. Atlanta REIA members can attend at no charge and non-members for $5.00.
Non-Members May Attend Too!
At least once a day, a potential Atlanta REIA member ask us what is the big difference between Atlanta REIA, Georgia REIA and other real estate groups in the Atlanta area. We tell them that there are a lot of differences that they really need to experience for themselves. To give our new members and potential a concentrated dose of what we are all about and how they can get involved, Dustin Griffin is doing a special, live What’s Hot in Real Estate Investing Webcast on June 21st at 7 PM on why Atlanta REIA has become the hottest new real estate investor association in Georgia. Here are just a few things we’ll cover on the webcast:
- Atlanta REIA’s mission and goals

Everyone has probably heard about the hot new iPad 2 by now. You’ve probably also heard Don DeRosa talk about how its not just a cool new toy, but an integral tool he uses to run his real estate investing business. You’ve probably already seen many investors actively using their iPad at our Atlanta REIA Meetings and Networking Events to take notes, take pictures, play music, videos and webcasts, send and receive emails and keep track of all our upcoming events and more.
Perhaps you’ve recently purchased an iPad yourself and, like the rest of us, want a lesson on how to not only use it more effectively for personal use, but more importantly, use it to run your investing business from virtually anywhere, on-the-fly. If you want to learn how to the iPad to revolutionize your business, come join us at our first iPad Workshop with Don DeRosa on Wednesday, June 22nd at 5 PM at our Atlanta REIA North Office located at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr in Buford just a few miles from the Mall of Georgia. The workshop is only $10 for Gold Members, $20 for Silver Members and $30 for guests.
