Ramon TookesJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, June 17th at 6:30PM at the Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs with Ramon Tookes on “Learning the Steps to Successfully Managing Repairs & Renovations!”

One common source of angst among new real estate investors is dealing with contractors and fear of the actual flip! The two most common methods are to 1) hire a General Contractor or 2) manage your own rehabs. Another 3rd viable alternative is to hire a Project Manager to be your eyes and ears for your rehab.

No matter what method you choose, every single rehab requires some level of day-to-day management. But once you define and develop a system that works for you, the fear will dissipate and you will feel confident with this highly profitable investment strategy.

Come join seasoned 24+ year investor, author, coach and wealth builder, Ramon Tookes at the Beginning Investors Group and learn how to:

  • Interview and hire a General Contractor (GC) and sub-contractors
  • Manage the schedule
  • Manage the budget
  • Find and negotiate bids
  • Maintain Quality of the Rehab
  • Procure Materials
  • Answers to Your Questions and More!

If you want to eliminate your fears fo rehabbing and working with contractors, you definitely do not want to miss this exciting presentation with Ramon Tookes at the Beginning Investors Group Meeting. Take Action and RSVP Now!

Georgette BlackOnsite PropertyPlease join us on Tuesday, June 18th at NOON for the Atlanta REIA Onsite Renovation Group (ORG) to learn all about finding, funding, fixing and flipping houses (or holding) for big profits right here in the metro Atlanta area. This month’s meeting will be held at property being rehabbed by Georgette Black located at 2072 Dekalb Ave NE, Atlanta, GA.

Onsite PropertyThis is Georgette’s first rehab project. She purchased this home as a 1950’s cottage that was only 963 sqft with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and in terrible condition in the Great Lake Clair Neighborhood. The plot she purchased was part of 7 being sold and this was actually split into 2 plots and she purchased the larger of the two with the house on it.

Because the home was in such terrible shape, Georgette had to do a complete rehab and tear the house down to the foundation. She has turned it into a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 3500 sqft home with a 2 car garage. It has a huge front porch, a large rear deck and an open floor plan throughout.

The house should be completed and staged by the time we visit the property on June 18th. So RSVP Now and come check out this MASSIVE Rehab project being completed by a 1st time rehabber!

Building Your Flip Team for the
NFL = New Flip League
with Ron Dimmock

Guests Pay $15 Online or $20 at the Door. RSVP Now!

Ron DimmockJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, May 20th at 6:30PM at the Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs with Ron Dimmock on “Building Your Flip Team for the NFL… the New Flip League!”

Ron says… “You’ve probably heard how exciting flipping can be as well as how scary it can be. Flipping is not for everyone, but if done right and connected with a strong network of players, you can win the big game and become the Tom Brady of flipping in your community or surrounding areas.

There is a lot to do before choosing areas of interest or making offers. Flipping is not about one deal or even two deals working. It’s about being consistent across the board. Consistency brings lower fees better pricing and more profits on the back end. You must educate and do the work on the front end so that you can win on the back end.”

Join Ron at the Beginning investor group and he will teach you…

  • The first steps you need to take as a new or seasoned investor
  • The education and funding needed to draft your team of players (contractors, agents, wholesalers, lenders, subcontractors, etc) needed to win in the big flipping game
  • How to pick and choose your team of contractors, agents, wholesalers, lenders and subcontractors needed to start and possibly trade during the game
  • What signs to look for during the Game (the Renovation) that you should watch out for
  • Playing Inside the City vs Outside the City
  • Determining Realistic Flip Goals for the Year (your Stats)
  • Answers to all your questions about playing in the New Flip League (NFL) and more!

If you want to build a winning team and map out realistic goals for flipping or buy and hold team for the next 12 months and beyond, you definitely do not want to miss this special Beginning Investors Group Meeting with Ron Dimmock. Take Action and RSVP Now!

Pitch Your Deals

Dustin GriffinThe Atlanta SHARK TANK meets on the 1st Monday of each month from 6PM to 9PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd NE, Sandy Springs, GA (map) just outside the Perimeter. Shark Tank is currently FREE for Atlanta REIA Members and Guests and is Hosted by Dustin Griffin.

WHOLESALERS, bring your deals and pitch them to the Sharks and our to attendees who are ready to put your deals under contract on the spot! Click here for more information on How to Submit Your Deals to the Sharks.

We can only pitch a limited number of deals to the Sharks, so the deals that don’t get pitched to the Sharks can be pitched during the “Rapid Fire, Deal Pitch Fest” after the conclusion of the Shark Tank panel.

Be sure to bring your contracts and plenty of business cards and flyers for our flyer table and enough for anyone who wants one. You can post your properties to our Atlanta Shark Tank Facebook Group and other Facebook Groups as well throughout the month.

INVESTORS, if you’re looking for a deal to purchase to fix and flip or to buy and hold, come prepared to write contracts and put down any necessary earnest money deposits. There will be plenty of deals being pitched to the Sharks and during the “Rapid Fire, Deal Pitch Fest”. If a deal is not already taken, all you have to to is decide if it is a “Deal” or “No Deal” and take action!

VENDORS, Reserve a Vendor Table for as little as $25, come check us out and and come prepared to meet lots of investors who are looking to do business with you. Vendor tables are cocktail tables that are available on a first come, first serve basis. Vendors will be setup in the “Game Room” at the Hudson Grille and be able to do Vendor Commercials in the “Dining Room” during the beginning of the meeting on a first come, first serve basis.
