Atlanta REIA Main Monthly MeetingCelebrate Your Last Labor Day with Atlanta REIA!

Hey everyone, our next Atlanta Real Estate Investors Alliance Meeting is on Monday, September 6th, 2010 at 5:30 PM at the Doubletree Hotel in Roswell GA. Yes, it is true that this is the Labor Day holiday for all of you with J.O.B.s, but for the  rest of us, this is just another day to get together with our fellow real estate professionals and celebrate the fact that we don’t have jobs thanks to the financial Independence that real estate investing has given us.

So if you have a job, enjoy the weekend and better part of Monday with your friends and family, and then come out and join us at 5:30 PM and celebrate what could be your “Last” Labor Day if you choose to make it so. Then you can spend the rest of the year working with your new real estate investor association to achieve the financial freedom you want and deserve so you can “lose your job” and join the ranks of the “self unemployed”!  As you know, many investors make more money off a single deal or two than many of their friends and family members make all year. Come hang with us and other successful investors to learn how you can too!

Gordon Catts, our Educational Director, has put together a panel of experienced investors for our September 6th Atlanta REIA Labor Day Meeting. The panel discussion theme is quit laboring for someone else and  labor for yourself instead using real estate investing as your means to do so. Read More→

The Fuller Center for Housing of Greater Atlanta

Dedicating 6 Homes in the Lakewood Heights Community

Saturday, September 11, 2010 at 10:30 AM (EST)

Meet at 10 Gould Street, Atlanta, GA 30315

Atlanta Fuller Center Legacy Build 2010 - Millard Fuller(Atlanta, GA) September 11th 2010 will be remembered as a Day of Celebration in Atlanta’s Lakewood Community when six families walk into homes that were once abandoned or in dire need of major renovation. This work is part of The Atlanta Fuller Center for Housing’s five year commitment to revitalization and stabilization of Lakewood.

In a time where our state and nation has seen record number of foreclosures, The Atlanta Fuller Center for Housing, with the help of volunteers, and funds from ACORA a Community Renewal grant from the City of Atlanta, shows us that there is still hope and a need to continue to address the housing needs of low-income families. The group purchased an abandoned house and did a complete makeover using Green building materials and technology for the “new” home of Trina Kinson and her daughters who worked side by side with volunteers. This home was done using EarthCraft House standards and is the first known GREEN Certified Renovation completed by volunteers.  The other five houses also received major renovation and will allow the families to enjoy more comfortable living conditions. Kimberly Lacey of HGTV stepped in as a volunteer and donated her expertise to design and landscaping for the six homes. Read More→

Atlanta REIA Main Monthly MeetingHey everyone, our next Atlanta Real Estate Investors Alliance Meeting is on Monday, September 6th, 2010 at 5:30 PM at the Doubletree Hotel in Roswell GA. Yes, this is the Labor Day holiday for all of you with J.O.B.s. But for the rest of us, Labor Day is just another day since every day is a job free holiday. So if you have a job, enjoy the weekend and better part of Monday with your friends and family, and then come out and join us at 5:30 PM and celebrate what may be your Last Labor Day. Then you can spend the rest of the year working with your new real estate investor association to achieve the financial freedom you want and deserve so you can “lose your job” and join the ranks of the “self unemployed”! We are absolutely not suggesting that you quit your job, but that you do indeed start to work toward financial independence through real estate investing. As you know, many investors make more money off a single deal or two than many of their friends and family members make all year and you can too!

At our next Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on Sept 6th, we will not only be celebrating your last Labor Day, but we will also be announcing our new membership programs, how you can become a charter member and we also want to get your input on our upcoming educational programs for the next year. After all, at Atlanta REIA, your real estate success is our mission and we want to give you what you want and need. So come out and join us on Labor Day!

Atlanta REIA is an Atlanta Georgia Real Estate Investors Association, but is not the same as the Georgia Real Estate Investors Association, Inc. (GAREIA.ORG). Atlanta REIA is a totally separate Atlanta Georgia Real Estate Investors Association from the Georgia Real Estate Investors Association, Inc.

Some people ask if we are a Georgia Real Estate Investors Association subgroup or subchapter, but we are NOT. Atlanta REIA is NOT a subgroup or subchapter of the Georgia Real Estate Investors Association, Inc. Atlanta REIA is completely independent from Georgia Real Estate Investors Association and always will be.

Others ask if we are a splinter group of Georgia Real Estate Investors Association, but we are not… not really. While it is true that we formed several REIA groups due to our own personal ambitions, we wish to remain close allies with Georgia Real Estate Investors Association and help the organization and its membership while having the flexibility of doing our own thing.
