Frank IglesiasIf you have been sending out tons of mailers and maybe not getting as much nice feedback as you have in the past, welcome to the club. The market is hot and response rates are not…IF you have been doing the same thing as you were even just six months ago.

That being said, there are still a ton of deals out there. You just have to start looking in different places in addition to changing your approach. Or perhaps, simply do larger volume. And let’s not forget, your mindset can have a significant impact on the process as well.

In this session, we will revisit our roundtable discussion to find out what is working, what is not, and ideas you can implement to start finding the wholesale gems that are out there in your area.

And I assure you they are out there! Join us as we dig into this all too important topic of marketing as a wholesaler this month. You are in the marketing business whether you realize it or not.

Bring your ideas, your recent results, and your deals so everyone can learn together. People in the group are doing deals today so make sure to bring yours!

See you there!

My name is Frank Iglesias. Come join us on Tuesday, August 18th at 7PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs as we network, do what is now our standard deal analysis at every meeting and then we will dive into our topic for the evening!

Atlanta REIA North Meeting
Never Leave Your Phone Unanswered, Money May Be Calling with Corky Nesbitt
August 19th, 6:30PM
1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, GA


Atlanta REIA Membes Please RSVP on
Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on

Corky NesbittConsumer Reports stated that 63% of people who call someone and get a voicemail do not actually leave a voicemail, but just hang up. If a motivated seller calls your number and gets a voicemail, the chances are high that they will just hang up and call the number from the next letter in the pile. Don’t miss the Atlanta REIA North meeting this month where our special guest speaker, Corky Nesbitt from Communication Business Services, Inc (CBSI), will be sharing all the services his company can provide to make sure that your phone never goes unanswered so you won’t lose out on that potential deal. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, August 19th at 6:30PM located at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, GA.

Being a successful investor is dependent upon being a successful marketer. There has to be a continuous flow of leads coming across your desk and your phone should always be ringing. There is no way possible that you can make yourself available 24/7 to always be answering those phone calls, along with analyzing the deals, going to the properties, meeting with sellers, etc. It would also be a waste of money sending out letters to motivated sellers, only for them to call you back and you not be available to answer and they getting your voicemail. CBSI can help with that.

CBSI is a Veteran-Owned, American-Operated, Certified Small Business, located right here in Marietta, GA. They have been successfully answering other people’s phone for over 30 years. They currently manage over 1200 accounts, 500 of which are for Real Estate Professionals. Their operators are extremely knowledgeable and well trained to handle your phone calls in an upbeat and professional manner. You receive an email notification every time the phone rings so you can keep up with your messages in real time and call back those hot leads right away and seal the deal. You definitely won’t want to miss out on learning how to ensure the success of this critical part of your business.

The Atlanta REIA North meeting is held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6:30PM at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, GA.. Atlanta REIA members can attend this meeting for FREE and guests and non-members can pay just $10 at the door OR pre-register online for only $5! Plan to get there early at 6PM to eat and network before the meeting begins. There will be lots of learning and lots of networking. Bring your deals and your haves, wants and needs to the event.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Advanced Wholesaling & Marketing Workshop with Vena Jones-Cox

Vena Jones-CoxOur Monday night speaker, Vena Jones-Cox, made an important point about all the misinformation out there about wholesaling houses.

The truth is, it’s a 5 step process. You can’t skip any steps, and there’s no need to add any. And if you’ll just do them over and over again, those 5 steps will end with a check for $5,000-$10,000 check in your pocket, over and over again.

If you missed Vena’s presentation or just want a refresher, this video will fill you in on what you need to do to make deal and make money…

And she’s back with even more this Saturday… In her all-day workshop, she’ll take you to the next level, and show you:

  • How to do MORE deals by getting motivated sellers calling YOU
  • How to wholesale bank owned and other “non-assignable” contracts
  • How to hire cheap help to do the rote, boring, or time-consuming tasks in your business
  • How to build a business that does deals every week, does them in other areas, and more

The 2-for-1 Early Registration Special for her Advanced Wholesaling & Marketing Workshop Expires TONIGHT at MIDNIGHT. So Register Now and Save! Gold Members only pay $24.95 and Silver Members $39.95. We are almost sold out so Register Now and Save! I’ll see you on Saturday!

Sat, August 8th at 9AM @ Doubletree Hotel, Tucker, GA
Advanced Wholesaling & Marketing Concepts to Make You More Money
A Full Day Workshop with Vena Jones-Cox
Sat, August 8th, 9AM-5PM
DoubleTree Hotel Atlanta – Northlake
4156 Lavista Rd, Tucker, GA
Advanced Wholesaling: How to Sell a Deal a Week and Build Passive Wholesale Income

Vena Jones-CoxTo truly get out of “the rat race,” you need a plan that goes beyond learning the strategies, and takes you to the point where your real estate business, more or less, runs without you.

For wholesalers, this means two things: using advanced strategies to do more deals and create passive income, and systematizing your business so that others can easily do deals FOR you.

In the morning workshop you’ll discover:

  • How to wholesale all those “non-assignable” bank-owned properties on the market today, WITHOUT coming up with the cash to close, and double the number of deals you do
  • How to use creative finance concepts to wholesale properties and add passive income to your business
  • How to systematize everything your wholesale business does, and easily delegate it to others
  • How to hire help when you can’t afford help
Advanced Marketing: How to Find More Motivated Sellers, Buyers, Renters and Lenders

Once you learn the basics of any real estate strategy, every problem you have is a marketing problem.

Not enough deals? That’s because not enough motivated sellers know that you buy properties. Properties staying vacant too long? That’s because not enough qualified renters or buyers know about your great deal.

Great marketing gives you incredible leverage, making your phone ring off the hook with customers who want to give you money or give you properties. But do you REALLY know how to make your marketing as effective as possible for as little money as possible?

In this afternoon workshop you’ll find out:

  • How to create messages that your prospects can’t resist, and get 5-20% response rates to your very first mailing, and make lots of money without spending lots of money
  • How to get lists of motivated sellers, buyers, lenders, and more
  • How to make absolutely sure your mail gets opened and read

Have you ever heard the expression, “you make all your money in real estate the day you buy?” Well, guess what: at Monday’s meeting, you’ll learn that…

When You Wholesale Real Estate,
You Make Your Money—In Cash—BEFORE You Buy!

Vena Jones-CoxSounds too good to be true, but our guest speaker, Vena Jones-Cox, does it about 40 times a year. Join us, and you’ll learn:

Well, it’s absolutely true, and it means that finding bargain properties is probably THE most important skill any real estate investor ever learns.

If you can consistently find sellers who NEED—not want, NEED– to sell their homes, even if it means that they take pennies on the dollar, you’ll have a life full of great deals and the money that they make. If you can’t find these sellers, you literally can’t make money investing in real estate.

  • How to identify the right properties right in your own back yard that you can wholesale for a $5,000-$10,000 profit in the next 30 days
  • What to offer for these properties, so they sell fast and get you cash BEFORE the closing
  • How to find and groom buyers for your deals      
  • And lots more!

It’s a great topic, a great meeting, and a great presenter, so mark your calendar and plan to attend! We’ll see you there.

BTW, Don’t forget Vena’s Saturday August 8th workshop on Advanced Wholesaling & Marketing Strategies. You can get more information or register at!


Vena Jones-CoxOur mission here at Atlanta REIA is to bring you the very best in down-to-earth, usable, money-making real estate information in the country at each and every meeting. And at our August 3rd meeting, we’ve outdone ourselves!

 See, we’ve arranged for Vena Jones-Cox to come all the way from Cincinnati, Ohio to share the wholesaling strategies that will make you $5,000-$10,000 per deal, in today’s market, with no cash or credit.

We’re thrilled to have Vena—she’s one of the most in-demand experts in the country. In addition to investing in real estate full-time since 1989, she’s been featured in Smart Money Magazine, Reader’s Digest, USA Today, Money, and dozens of other books and publications, and has taught literally thousands of regular folks all over the country how to achieve their financial goals through real estate investing.

Best of all, Vena is a real-life investor who explains exactly, step-by-step, how to make money in real estate. At our August meeting, she’s going to tell us how she puts a property under contract each week and then sells the CONTRACT for a $5-$10K profit without ever buying the property—and how you can, too.

The meeting is at the usual location, Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA at 5:00 pm. We’ll see you there!

BTW, Vena is also joining us for an all-day workshop on Saturday, August 8th where she’ll teach us all about Wholesaling Business & Marketing. It’s just $29.95 for Gold Members and $39.95 for Silver Members to attend; space will run out fast! Register right now by calling (678) 701-7160 or online at

Atlanta REIA Wild Wild West

Explode Your Business Now!
Do More Deals by Working Less!

with Frank Iglesias
July 27th, 6:30PM, Cherokee Cattle Company
2710 Canton Rd, Marietta, GA

Atlanta REIA Membes Please RSVP on
Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on
if you have a meetup account.

Frank IglesiasThis month we have a very special treat for you!  Whether you are new to real estate, getting back in, or building your business and working more than you’d like to, you NEED to be at this month’s Wild West Event!  Our guest speaker Frank Iglesias is the real deal. He’s currently running a very successful real estate business, and he’s built it so that it doesn’t suck up all his time!  As a result, he’s able to enjoy the lifestyle that most real estate investors only dream about.  How?  By effectively leveraging his time!

Join us at the Wild West Event on Monday July 27 at the Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta, as Frank shares with us his secrets on how he was able to grow his business, make more ca$h, do more deals, and buy more houses by using VA’s!  If you have been around real estate for any length of time, you’ve probably heard about Virtual Assistants, or “VAs” for short.  Sounds sexy, but how can you use them effectively?  Recently, Frank gave a talk and asked the audience what came to their minds when he said the term ‘Virtual Assistant’.  The answers were, like almost any other time he’s asked:  1) International, 2) Cheap, 3) Hard to Understand, 4) Do busy work tasks.  No wonder more people don’t leverage this awesome opportunity to its capacity–the mindset is not one for success before the relationship even begins!

Join us at the Wild West on Monday July 27, when Frank will break this mold by discussing several key points, including:

  • Are VAs your team membersor are they just doing tasks?
  • Hiring and training VAs to make decisions for you
  • How VAs fit into the 80/20 rule, when leveraged properly, so you get your time back

Reality is, running a business does take some work, but it does not have to be overly complicated, time consuming or difficult.  It does, however, require preparation, planning and ultimately, systems.  It won’t happen until you first decide to Stop Doing It All Yourself.

What you will learn:  Frank will cover a lot of ground on how VAs play a vital part of his thriving real estate business, including:

  • Scaling your business using VAs
  • Differences between local and virtual help
  • Unleashing the right VAs to run your day to day for you so you can focus on growth
  • The principals his team uses to look at over 100 deals every single week and cherry pick what makes sense
  • And Much, Much, More!

Bottom line, it’s competitive out there with the market picking up speed and more investors vying for the same deals. To make more money at a faster pace requires efficiency and speed. Having the right team in place is critical to achieving this successfully. Having just one helping hand daily can make a huge impact on your growth. VAs can help you accomplish this with greatly reduced costs, if done properly. So mark your calendars now and get ready for an action packed evening at the Wild West Event on Monday July 27! Bring your questions and take lots of notes so you too can Stop Doing It All Yourself! See you there!

Robert MulcahyYou are all in for a special treat this month at the Peachtree City EPIC Group. Robert Mulcahy is going to be our guest speaker and will be teaching us about creative financing solutions for today’s real estate investors. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 28th at 6:30PM at the Green Ginger Asian Fusion Restaurant located at 200 Market Place Connector in Peachtree City, GA. This will be a great opportunity for you to network with other like-minded investors and to create a relationship with a company who can assist you with your financing needs.

In 2013, approximately 14.9 million single family homes were occupied by renters, which is a 26% increase since before the market crash in 2006. Of all the rental inventory, 53% are 1-4 unit properties. With a 2% decrease in overall home ownership, that creates an additional 2.5 million renters. (Source: National Multifamily Housing Council & U.S. Census Bureau. Updated 9/2014) With these statistics, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that now is a great time to stock up on rental properties, but more properties means more cash needed to buy them.

Robert Mulcahy with Angel Oak Prime Bridge, LLC will show you the solutions to those financial problems. He will show you…

  • How best to use leverage & financing to increase your investment business
  • How to understand and access financing
  • An overview of new lending programs available specifically for investors
  • How to finance up to 25 properties at a time
  • Programs that use the property income to qualifyand not your personal incom
  • How to pull cash out of properties
  • And so much more!

If you are involved in any type of real estate transaction needing funding, you won’t want to miss connecting with Robert and his company. He has the ability to give you the freedom you need to purchase as many properties as you desire. Some highlights of investor loan programs available are:

  • No minimum down payment (Borrow up to 100% of the total project costs, subject to 65% of the After Repaired Value)
  • Landlord program – Convert renovation loans to permanent 30 year mortgages using the appraised value (With no seasoning on the appraised value)
  • Loans for renovation and new construction
  • Straight purchase or renovation loans
  • Cash out loans
  • Loans in the name of businesses
  • Works with all credit scenarios
  • Loans to foreign nationals

Come on out on Tuesday, July 28th. You are sure to meet some great individuals and make lasting connections that will help propel your business in the right direction. We look forward to seeing you there!
