This month’s “Young” Sharks are Shawna Bennett, Sean Roulhac & Maria Rosenswike who are all active investors who have been doing deals for a few years. This month’s guest host for the “Young Shark Tank” is Scott Sekulow, the “Flipping House Rabbi”.

The Atlanta Real Estate Investors SHARK TANK is new group for active real estate investors who want to get together once a month to buy, sell, trade and pitch deals, network, market, have fun and make deals happen!

If you need to sell a deal or want to find a fix and flip deal or a buy and hold deal, this is the one meeting you don’t want to miss! There will be a vendors trade show, networking, a flyer table, experts on hand, the Shark Tank, deal pitching and more!

The Shark Tank Meeting will be a “Who’s Who” of the local real estate investor market. Come build your buyer’s, your seller’s list and your dream team.

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.

George AntoneThat’s a BOLD promise! Anyone who is familiar with George Antone and his proven advanced strategies know they are in for a treat because George always fulfills on his bold promises!

George, a 3-time best-selling author and thought leader in the finance and investing space, has blown the lid off a new paradigm no one is teaching; or even talking about, until now!

Imagine low-risk and low-stress strategies that are implemented one time and placed on autopilot to work FOR you starting ASAP – all in 6 hours or less per month!

In fact, keep reading for a $100k+ strategy that will be revealed in this presentation!

No, this is not a “get rich quick” strategy, but a fascinating way to tweak finance to make it work for you in amazing ways!

The traditional methods of building wealth can be grouped into 3 main categories: Investing, Trading and Saving. These traditional methods work; however, they require a lifetime commitment of learning and implementation.

Hacking Finance by George AntoneGeorge has been working on this new paradigm, a 4th method, called “Hacking Finance” – that promises the ability to LEARN and IMPLEMENT each financial strategy within a total of 6 hours or less, and then place it on autopilot to keep working for you! Join us at the meeting to get your Complimentary Copy of “Hacking Finance”!

…and you are about to walk away with one of these $100k+ “shortcuts” just from this presentation! This is NOT an overnight $100k+ strategy, but something you implement one time, and it builds over a number of years into $100k or more on autopilot.

What if you are already investing or lending? Quite simply, these methods will increase your existing returns tremendously! Come discover from George’s #1 trainer how to boost your yields by combining this system with your existing investments!

Paul RossanoThat’s exactly why we’re excited to have Paul Rossano, George’s top trainer, as our guest speaker this month at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on Monday, April 8th from 5PM-9PM at 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA!

Paul will also be sharing this new paradigm, and will give you details of ONE of those strategies that banks use (called “floats”), that you can use to skyrocket your wealth. Paul will demonstrate what you need to do the very next morning at your local bank to increase your wealth by $100k+ over a number of years on autopilot without the stress of risky investments… and this is just ONE of MANY strategies!

Some people work hard. Others work smart. This is working smart!

If you want your path to financial freedom made easier, then this is something you cannot afford to miss out on! It just might be what you are looking for!

With a few financial tweaks and this different approach, you’ll find you have more time and money to work with than you thought.

Leap forward financially with less risk, less stress, and more time to enjoy life!

So bring a notepad, bring a friend, and get to this meeting—it may change your financial life forever! RSVP NOW & DON’T MISS IT!

with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaHey folks, Don DeRosa here… I’d like to personally invite you to kick off the monthly Atlanta REIA Meeting with me on April 8th at 5PM Sharp. At this session I will show you how to become a transaction engineer and how to do something with every single lead you get.

Have you ever had a lead that you didn’t know what to do with, or a lead that you wish you had more options? Having multiple option on every deal could make all the difference in the world. The age old saying “the more you know, the more you make” really does apply in real estate investing.

I will be discussing, multiple offer strategies, negotiating and creative offer making. I will also show you how to use my patented “Easy Offer Maker” to make profitable offers every time, using multiple strategies like, owner finance, subject to, options and lease options. If you want to learn how to make money at everything you get your hands on then come see me at 5PM SHARP on Monday April 8th.

Atlanta REIA Presents the BRAND NEW:
Due Diligence Boot Camp
For Busy Real Estate Investors Who
Want to Know & Understand the Numbers When Making Deals Happen!
A Brand New, 2 Day Boot Camp with Don DeRosa & Dustin Griffin
Sat & Sun, March 23rd & 24th, 9AM–6PM
3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA

Don DeRosaWhen it comes to running a profitable real estate investing business, it’s all about knowing your numbers. If you’re off on your numbers, you may barely break even on a deal or even worse… lose big time!

You’ve probably heard the saying… “You make your money when you buy”. This means YOU MUST KNOW YOUR NUMBERS BEFORE YOU BUY!

So when it comes to knowing your numbers…

  • Do you know how to really determine if you are buying a good deal or not?
  • Do you know if you’re paying too much?
  • Do you know how much profit you’re going to make?
  • Do you know how to do all your due diligence before you buy and what to look for?
  • Do you know how to accurately determine the AS-IS value of an ugly house?
  • Do you know After Repair Value (ARV) of a property for a buy and hold vs a fix and flip (or a high end rehab vs a low end rehab)?
  • Do you know how to accurately determine repairs and estimate repair costs before you buy?
  • Are you totally comfortable using the numbers your buyer or sellers give you when working a deal?
  • Do you know how to quickly run the numbers like a pro?
  • Do you know the other types of due diligence you must do before you ever close on a deal?

If you answered “NO” to any of these questions, unfortunately you may be going to a real life, expensive, school of hard knocks seminar very soon if your not extremely careful!

Dustin GriffinInstead of learning these valuable due diligence skills the hard and expensive way, be sure to attend the upcoming, highly affordable, ALL NEW, Due Diligence Boot Camp with Don DeRosa & Dustin Griffin on Saturday & Sunday, March 23rd & 24th, 2019 from 9AM to 6PM at 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA.

  • Reliable sources of “comparable” information data
  • How to find and run comparables
  • How to decide which comparables to use and which to ignore
  • How to be a problem solver to create win-win deals for everyone
  • How to take a lead and come up with multiple ways to structure the deal
  • How to use your computer or mobile device to do your due diligence
  • How to use state of the art tools to do all your negotiating for you
  • How to overcome all seller objections when buying a house
  • How to know the differences with a property’s rental income and it’s value

Buying Houses “Subject-To”
in Today’s Real Estate Market
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosa“My name is Don DeRosa. I am a real estate trainer, mentor and full-time real estate investor actively buying, selling and holding properties each month for huge profits and long-term cash flow. When I first started almost 22 years ago, I thought I wanted to be a wholesaler and flip contracts because I thought I needed a bunch of cash to buy and hold, or buy and rehab houses. I was like everyone else starting out in this business. I didn’t have lots of money, so I thought wholesaling was the easy way to go.

Boy was I wrong. Fortunately for me I was introduced to a buying technique called “Subject-To” by a friend. This is a technique where the Seller deeds the property over to you (you own it) but leaves the loan in place and you simply continue to make the existing payments (you don’t have to go to the bank and qualify).

Well I must say this technique changed my life. Within the first 30 days of learning the Subject-To technique I bought 4 houses for one dollar each (yes, you read that correctly) and I have been buying them that way ever since.

I no longer have to sell the “Golden Goose” to make lots of money. Today I am working furiously at buying properties “Subject-To” using the existing financing on the seller’s home instead of having to go to a bank or a hard money lender for funding. This allows me to buy multiple properties fast, without coming up with all the purchase funds on the front end.

Subject-To is the perfect strategy to use in today’s market where easy funding is not readily available for investors to buy pretty houses. Buying houses “Subject-To” the existing finances is by far the most powerful technique is real estate today. You can control and own an enormous amount of real estate with very little money. Understanding how to get sellers to finance your deals is the ultimate investment strategy.

If you’re a person who doesn’t have a lot of cash, or doesn’t have good credit or simply doesn’t want to use your credit, then you need to attend the upcoming Tampa REIA meeting where I will be teaching you how to effectively use this technique. Learning this technique may very well be a life changing event for you like it was for me.

Join me at the Beginning Investors Group Online on Tuesday, February 26th at 7PM ET and I will share with you, many of the Subject-To tools and techniques I use every day to create winning deals for myself as well as my buyers and sellers.

I will demonstrate how to apply these strategies, tools and techniques, and show you exactly how to evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller and get the paperwork done almost instantly and without any of the hard work you normally do to get your deals done.

By the end of the presentation, you’ll know how to buy houses…

  • Without using your own credit
  • Without having to sign personally on a note
  • Without having to qualify for a mortgage
  • Without having much money

Also…

  • How to recognize a “Subject To” opportunity and buy with little or no money!
