Marketing Madness Workshop

April 19th, 9am-5pm – *Keller Williams
200 Glenridge Point Pkwy, STE 100, Sandy Springs
Do you want to learn the fastest and easiest way
to make money in real estate?

It’s a proven fact that real estate has created more millionaires than any other investment in history, so what’s stopping you from being the next real estate multi-millionaire?

  • No Cash?
  • No Credit?
  • No Training?
  • No Experience?
  • No mentor?
  • No resources?
  • No leads?
  • No confidence?
  • Fear of the unknown?
  • Fear of risk involved?
  • Don’t want tenants?
  • Don’t know where to start?

Rock ShukoorDo any of these obstacles apply to you? If so, you must attend my upcoming Marketing Madness Workshop on Saturday, April 19th from 9AM to 5PM at the Keller Williams Office* located at 200 Glenridge Point Pkwy NE, Suite 100 in Sandy Springs, GA. During this full day event, I am going to personally help you overcome each and every one of the obstacles that may be stopping you from bringing home some really big checks in a very short period of time with little or no cash, credit, experience or risk required on your part.

Whether you know it or not, as real estate investors, we are all in the “marketing” business. Yes, “real estate” is our product and “solutions” is the service we provide, but we are in the marketing business. You must learn how to be a great marketer to be able to find great deals no one else can and be able to attract cash buyers so you can close within days.

When you run your real estate investment business properly, you will get paid within days not weeks or months, just like most successful wholesalers do. Of course this is easier said than done, right? Well, it is that easy when you know what to do, how to do it, when to do it and when you have the right resources available to you.

During the Marketing Madness Workshop, I will share tons of useful and up to date information and teach you how to become a “Marketing Machine” and the “Go-to Person” for hot deals in your market.

I will teach you direct mail marketing secrets, voice broadcasting, mobile marketing, text message broadcasting, video marketing, social media marketing, how to build a buyers list, and many more killer marketing techniques that can be used in any market. I will also teach you many of my wholesaling techniques, share the resources you need and keep it simple, fun, fast and easy!

So what are you waiting for? Will you be the next real estate millionaire? It is up to you. Success starts with taking action, one step at a time. So don’t let anything stand in your way. Clear your schedule, forget the past and come join me at the workshop so I can help you become a Marketing & Wholesaling Machine! See you at the event!

Doug ShaddixYou’re working hard to put together a real estate portfolio to financially take care of you and your family.  Have you stopped long enough to be sure you’ve done what’s necessary to protect those assets?  John D.

Join us as at the upcoming Atlanta REIA Wild Wild West Subgroup on Monday, March 24th at 6:30PM where Special Guest, Attorney Doug Shaddix, will show you how to protect your assets so people can’t take them from you on a whim.

  • When is the right time to STOP buying and selling real estate in your own name and START forming entities to do business in?
  • Which entity should you consider using for your deals?  (Yes there is a BIG difference here… learn it before it’s too late and Uncle Sam gets in your pocket WAY too deep!)
  • How do you structure your empire for maximum asset protection and lowest taxation?
  • True stories of those who failed to protect their assets and what happened to them

Come Learn from “Papa”

Posted on March 21, 2014 by

Good Friday afternoon everyone,

Ron LeGrand is coming to town for a one day event tomorrow. He comes into town about once a year at most and this is a rare opportunity to see him for a very small price. If you have not been introduced to this man, we affectionately call him “Papa” and many of us owe a great deal of thanks to him for sharing his wisdom and knowledge about real estate with us.

If you are having trouble and struggling with getting your real estate career off the ground or if you have been out of the game for a while, this would be a great place for you to be tomorrow. Ron has some new techniques to share with us that can put money – good money – in your pocket within 30 days when you follow his system. I’m really excited to be a part of the Atlanta Homebuyers Society which is intended to help you do just that.

This is not an advertisement. It is not a shameless promo. This is something I am sharing with you that I wholeheartedly believe in, because without Ron, I don’t believe I would have had success in my career that I have been so fortunate to experience. What if spending tomorrow with Ron could change the course of your life for the better? I know it did mine and I hope you will join us tomorrow.   Last I checked, we did have a few seats still available. That was this morning, so if you’d like to join us go ahead and get registered ASAP.

For more information on this event, please go to

Everybody have a great weekend!

Come Learn to ACT Fast & Do More Deals at the Fast Track To Wealth Seminar with Ron LeGrand
Saturday, March 22nd from 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM
DoubleTree Hotel, Roswell, GA

Ron LeGrandAtlanta REIA is very excited to announce that Ron LeGrand will be teaching his all-day Fast Track to Wealth Seminar in Atlanta on Saturday, March 22nd at 8:30AM at the DoubleTree Hotel located at 1075 Holcomb Bridge Rd in Roswell, GA for a full days’ worth of serious money making strategies for real estate investors.

One of the topics that we are most excited about Ron teaching you is ACTS which stands for “Assignment of Contract & Terms System”. ACTS is all about quick turning houses on terms instead wholesaling for all cash. Click here to learn more about ACTS!

The new Atlanta Homebuyers Society which is forming now is based on implementing and using the ACTS investment strategy to quick turn houses and put cash in your pocket quickly with little or no risk.

If you are at all serious about doing more deals this year and/or joining the Atlanta Homebuyers Society, this is an event YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS!

Here’s a little of what Ron will be covering at the Fast Track to Wealth Seminar…

  1. Making Big Money With No Money Or Credit

  2. How To Make $5,000 Per House On Over-Leveraged Houses And Never Own Them And Do 4 A Month Part Time. This is ACTS!

    Please Note: When you register for this event, you will be able to download a copy of Ron’s Property Information Sheet (Download here). Take this lead sheet, call a few sellers and get a few of these completed lead sheets to class and Ron will analyze the deals with you and try to help you close some deals in class. Ron will be giving out “I Buy Houses” T-Shirts to everyone who brings in some fully completed lead sheets!

    You can also listen to the teleseminar below that we recorded with Ron this week where he explains how to fill out the Property Information Sheet and what to expect in class.

What is ACTS?

Posted on March 21, 2014 by

It’s New! It’s Hot! It’s Very Profitable! It’s ACTS!

Ron LeGrandWe now have a simple program called ACTS, which stands for “Assignment of Contract & Terms System”, that’s almost instantly doubling the revenue of my students and my own house business. It’s an amazing, instant exit for sellers who are over financed and upside down as well as free and clear houses and those with a mortgage with equity, and it’s a huge public service for all those millions of buyers who can’t qualify for a loan.

  • You will never own the home.
  • You have no cost.
  • You can do three or four a month and make a minimum of $5,000 on each, and my friend, that’s not an exaggeration… if anything, an understatement. (We’re doing 2 a week here in Jacksonville). Last week we collected a $32,000 and a $30,000 paycheck on two houses we’ll never own…both within 30 days.

When you see ACTS, you won’t sleep for three days when you see how quickly you can get a check with no loans, no banks, no repairs, no credit, no delays and very little work!

Join me at the Fast Track to Wealth Seminar on Saturday, March 22, 2014 and I will personally show you how to make $5,000 or more per house and never own them and easily do 4 per month part time! This is all new and you better learn it before your competition does!

As you know, the Atlanta Homebuyers Society, which is modeled after my Jacksonville Homebuyers Society, is forming in Atlanta right now. You must know this technique to be eligible to participate. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn ACTS from me and then implement the strategy with your local Atlanta Homebuyers Society. I won’t be back to teach you this powerful strategy for another year unless you attend my 4 Day Quick Start Real Estate School in April, so Register for the Fast Track Seminar Now! Atlanta REIA is offering it to you at an insanely low rate.

Clyde Wilson

Posted on March 11, 2014 by

Clyde WilsonClyde Wilson dropped out of high school in 1950 when he was 16 years old. Clyde has mastered the ability to spot incredible opportunities and structure profitable transactions. You’ll never find Clyde without his financial calculator which he uses to investigate various “what if” scenarios to improve cash flow, yields, and/or profits. Clyde has an easy, down-to-earth way of explaining how to build wealth and cash flow.

In 1954 Clyde bought his first investment property but lost money on it. Not one to give up easily, in 1959 Clyde bought a house for $199 down and $88 a month ( piti) plus another commercial property for $1500 down. Since then, Clyde has purchased single family homes, commercial properties, mobile home parks, mobile homes, industrial properties, subdivisions and more throughout the United States. In addition, he has parlayed his monies into building two 100-unit senior citizen facilities and eleven town home projects plus he has bought several International House of Pancakes and Jiffy Lube Centers.

Clyde states he has a simple philosophy for his success in real estate investing, “When you purchase a property, you want ‘income’ property not ‘out go’ property, so the property needs to have either break even or a positive cash flow from day one. If it cannot do either, walk away from the deal.”
