  • Beginning Investors GroupDustin GriffinKathy Strickland

    Monday, September 20th @ 6:30PM (LIVE & IN PERSON IN SANDY SPRINGS!): The Beginning Investors Group (BIG) meets LIVE & IN PERSON at Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs with Kathy Strickland on “How to Avoid ‘Tenants from Hell’ in Your Rental Properties”.

    It is more important than ever to ensure that the people who are applying to live in your properties are who they say they are, they earn the money they claim to earn, and they are financially responsible.

    Cathy says “Out of every ten applications I receive, at least five of them contain fraudulent information—fake paystubs, false employment/income data, false ID documents and false rental history. Fortunately, there are resources online and methods to help you prove or disprove the information on the application.

    I will show you how to recognize altered and fake paystubs, false IDs, offer letters, disability documents and court documents and how to recognize warning signs on the application. I offer a list of websites that I use to confirm or deny the legitimacy of the information on the application. I also discuss the importance of applying these methods fairly to all applicants to ensure compliance with fair housing laws.

    RSVP NOW and Join Us at BIG with Cathy to discuss the tenant screening process and how you can avoid putting bad tenants in your properties!

Darlene CoquerelThe Foreclosure Moratorium and Forbearance continues to get extended (currently July 31st) BUT, WE’RE STILL BUYING PREFORECLOSURE DEALS!

Investors are asking, “How can I buy foreclosures if there’s still a moratorium on foreclosures?” AND “Where is the market heading?” “Will we have a repeat of the 2008 Economic Recession? If so, what does that mean to us as investors?” Darlene will explain how she and her team is able to capitalize in the market and what changes have to be made to complete in this market now!

Join us at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting & Vendor Tradeshow on Monday, July 12th from 6PM-9PM at the Doubletree Roswell located at 1075 Holcomb Bridge Rd, Roswell, GA. This month, our special guest speaker, Darlene Coquerel, The Queen of Foreclosures, will explain how she and her team have changed their game to be able to compete and capitalize in today’s crazy real estate market market! RSVP NOW!

Darlene Coquerel is a proven talent in the art of deal making. She started investing in Real Estate in 1991 buying single and multi-family properties. Believing in constant education of the business she learned to acquire
properties using creative techniques. During the early 1990’s, she started investing in HUD and VA foreclosures, as the Real Estate business is ever changing she continued her successful track record working on staying educated
about the Real Estate business and knowing when to hold and when to FLIP.

Darlene obtained her Real Estate license in 1994 and went to work with a top producing Real Estate Agent. This
gave her the necessary techniques to pull in the retailing aspect of real estate, truly making her a hybrid in the business between the realtor & the investor world.

Since her 1 st purchase in 1991, Darlene has acquired, managed, sold, and participated in managing renovations for
thousands of residential properties. Her background has allowed her to be involved in all types of acquisitions, (Wrap around mortgages, Owner finance, Lease Options, Short Sales, Subject to, Pre-Foreclosures, REOs,
Courthouse Steps, Rehabs, Landlady, Landholder, etc.).

Darlene, now affectionately known as “The Queen of Foreclosures”, obtained this title because of her expertise,
experience and knowledge of all aspects and stages of Foreclosures. She has transacted thousands of properties through preforeclosures, foreclosures and post-foreclosures (REO’s) and she is sharing her expertise with others!

TURNING FORECLOSURES INTO FORTUNES! In her presentation, Darlene will share…

  • Insider secrets of how her and her team are navigating through foreclosures during the Foreclosure Moratorium and Forbearance extensions!
  • How the paradigm shift affects the way she does real estate.
  • What to do to get more Motivated Sellers to talk to you.
  • How to increase your conversions and Close More Deals.
  • Which creative strategies are working in this market and why.
  • Why NOW IS THE TIME TO MAKE MONEY IN REAL ESTATE!

REGISTER NOW and join us on Monday, July 12th on the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting & Vendor Tradeshow and bring your notepad. If you have ever heard Darlene speak, you know that she has a lot to share and you are not going to want to miss any of it! She will share predictions of where the market is heading in the next 18 months and where we are in the real estate cycle and how real estate investors should do to prepare for the economic downturn.

“Find Your Fit”
in Real Estate Investing
with Roger Blankenship
Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Pay $15 Online or $20 at the Door. RSVP Now!

Roger BlankenshipJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, June 21st at 6:30PM at the Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs with our special guest speaker, Roger Blankenship, who will be discussing “How to Find Your Fit in Real Estate Investing!”

“Hi I’m Roger Blankenship, Host of the nationally syndicated radio show, “Flipping America” and I’m going to be in Atlanta Monday, June 21st, 2021 at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) to talk about getting started in real estate investing. Although my show is called Flipping America, I don’t believe flipping houses is for everyone. In fact it’s not ideal for most people. But I do believe that everyone – including you – should consider real estate as a part of a balanced investment portfolio.

We have documented at least 86 career paths in real estate and real estate investment. Many of those have variations with different asset classes and strategies. I honestly believe there are more than a thousand ways to make a million dollars in real estate. One of them is probably right for you.

But how do you figure this out? I’ve watched hundreds of people over the years and seen people both flourish and flop. I’ve also seen some of the people who failed at one thing do really well at a different thing. And I’ve started noticing patterns among people who do well. So a couple of years ago I started building profiles of successful people in different areas – wholesalers, flippers, builders, rental investors and lenders. What we have learned is that successful people in each area have certain characteristics and life situations. Those who lack those qualities struggle and usually don’t do well.

What if there was a way every person could figure this out BEFORE they begin? Perhaps we could help people save time and money by pointing them in a direction that gives them a better chance of succeeding. This thinking led to the “Find Your Fit” Presentation I’m bringing to Atlanta Monday night. I will be speaking at the Beginning Investor Group, a sub-group meeting of the Atlanta REIA. The meeting begins at 6:30 pm at the Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs. After the presentation I’ll stick around and answer every question anyone has about getting started in this great business. My personal goal is to train 1000 real estate millionaires. And I hope YOU will be one of them! See you at BIG!

Your daily routine should consist of enhancing your mental, physical and emotional health. With a consistent routine, everything aligns in the right direction. By applying all of these actions, this will change your Life!! There will be distractions, life will happen, but your WHY should keep you on the right path!”

Non-Members & Guests RSVP Now!

The Beginning Investors Group (BIG) is an educational and networking group for new investors who are just getting started in real estate investing as well as “new again” real estate investors who’ve taken a few years off and are looking to get back in the game.

Dustin GriffinBIG is hosted by Dustin Griffin who will be bringing in local and national real estate experts to teach new investors how to survive and thrive in our ever changing economy and real estate market. The entire purpose of the group is to help new investors get their first deal and help new again investors get their next deal.

This is a “dinner” group and we kindly request that you buy dinner and/or drinks since the Hudson Grille allows us to meet there. There will be lots of learning and lots of networking. Bring your deals and your haves, wants and needs to the meeting for discussion.

As always, Atlanta REIA Member can attend the meeting at no charge and not-yet-members can RSVP Online for $15 or pay $20 at the door.

The Meeting Before the Meeting

Wrap Around Mortgages
The Alternative To Buying “Subject To”

with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaJoin Don DeRosa every month at 5PM SHARP at our Meeting-Before-the-Meeting that we like to call the High Tech Home Buying Creative Deal Structuring Subgroup one hour BEFORE the Atlanta REIA Main Monthly Event.

“With the upcoming tsunami of foreclosures looming on the horizon home owners will be needing alternative to an all cash offer due to the fact that they may be over leveraged. In most cases the recommended method to help them would be buying the property “Subject To” the existing mortgage. That is where the home owner simple just gives you the warranty deed (Ownership) but the note and mortgage (lien) stay in their name.

However, sometimes the homeowner doesn’t feel comfortable with just handing over the deed to their home without any security that you are going to make their payments. That’s where “Wrap Around” mortgages come into play. At this session I will go over all the basics. I will show you:

  • Who should use this technique
  • What is an actual Wrap Around Mortgage
  • Why is it extremely important to have this technique in your toolbox
  • When you should use it
  • How you should use it
  • Answers to your questions and more!

I will cover all of these elements at the “Meeting, before the Meeting.” at 6pm on Monday, May 10th. Come learn another awesome tool to place in your creative real estate toolbox.”

Each month, Don will teach you about different real estate investing purchase and sale strategies to put more money in your pocket as as well as state-of-the-art tools and techniques you’ll use to evaluate deals and figure out how to make them work. You’ll learn to work less and earn more so you can spend more time where you want, when you want and with whom you want.

Each unit = At least $200 / month 💰
5 units = $1,000 / month 💰💰
25 units = 45,000 / month 💰💰💰
50 units = 410,000 / month 💰💰💰💰

with Paul Rossano

Paul RossanoAt this month’s Atlanta REIA Online Webinar on Monday, March 8th from 6PM – 9PM, Paul Rossano will be our special guest speaker where he will teach you “How to Make The Financial System Build Your Wealth For You On Auto-Pilot Without Investing”.

That’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.

George 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!

…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!

That’s exactly why we’re excited to have Paul Rossano, George’s top trainer, doing an exclusive training for us month; sharing this unique and creative new way to approach finance and investing.

Paul will be sharing tons of info about this new paradigm, and he’ll even give you details for 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 economic 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!

Register for this Atlanta REIA Training Webinar below and experience what George’s inner circle is using to build their wealth and peace of mind, in a relatively short period of time.

This is truly powerful stuff to know and we’re excited it’s being shared with us!

These are just a few of the gems you will learn from Carson, so Register to Attend Now and join us Online on Monday, March 8th from 6 to 9PM. See you there!

The Titanic Effect in Today’s Housing Market
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaJoin Don DeRosa every month at 6PM SHARP at our Meeting-Before-the-Meeting that we like to call the High Tech Home Buying Creative Deal Structuring Subgroup  that meets one hour BEFORE the Atlanta REIA Main Monthly Event.

Here is a message from Don regarding of this month’s Meeting Before the Meeting topic…

“Every day I am asked where I think the economy is headed and my answer is always the same. We are headed into a transitional market. By transitional I mean a market that is slowly transitioning from a full blown sellers’ market to more of a buyers’ market. The million-dollar question is WHEN.

By all accounts the housing market on the surface is showing no signs of slowing down BUT what you may not see is unemployment is still very high, mortgage forbearances are still climbing, and evictions are still being delayed.

Also, COVID-19 is still very much a factor in supply and demand causing things like building supplies to skyrocket from just a year ago. This is all creating an iceberg effect. Little to no issues on the surface but giant issues beneath surface.

When you factor all of this together, in my opinion, we are creating the perfect storm. Like the Titanic the passengers are laughing and having a grand ole time, but below deck the ship is taking on water.

Homeowners are masking the issues with the governments so called HELP by delaying the inevitable. So, when this happens what MUST investors be doing to prepare for the inevitable. That question is also a SIMPLE answer. Learn to buy houses using owner finance techniques such as “Subject to”, “Wrap Around Mortgages” and several other no money down techniques.

At this meeting I will show you why you absolutely MUST learn how to buy using these techniques.

You will learn:

  • Who it is going to effect
  • What you should be doing to prepare for this inevitability
  • When you need to start preparing
  • And How you need to do it

You will learn how using these techniques will save homeowners and, in the process, you won’t needs banks or credit to buy these houses when the ship starts to sink. The last thing you want to be is NOT prepared. Take action today so you can be a life raft to many who will soon need you.

Join us at the Meeting-Before-the-Meeting each month where Don will teach you about different real estate investing purchase and sale strategies to put more money in your pocket as well as state-of-the-art tools and techniques you’ll use to evaluate deals and figure out how to make them work. You’ll learn to work less and earn more so you can spend more time where you want, when you want and with whom you want.

Onsite PropertyPlease join us on Tuesday, January 5th 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.

Stephanie LangfordThis month’s Onsite Renovation Group meeting, the first of the New Year, will be held at a renovation being managed by Gregory Davis and Funded by Stephanie Langford of DFW Hard Money located at 2870 Ridgemore Rd NW, Atlanta, GA.

Gregory says “This property was built in 1954 as a 4/2 with 1464 sqft. It had been a rental for a long time and had not been updated in at least 30 years. Due to the condition of the property, it needed a full gut, all new systems, and a new roof.

The neighborhood was what drew us to the property. The schools are some of the best in Atlanta and home prices are rising rapidly. The neighborhood is also very active and they have their own HOA with a security officer. A lot of the homes in the neighborhood have been updated and they’re starting to build new construction in the neighborhood. Most of the homes in there don’t last longer than a week on the market even with higher price points.

We decided that if we wanted to get the ARV that we wanted, we needed to add on a larger master bedroom, master bath & closet as well as do a full gut rehab. After completion we’ll be at a 4/3 2164 sqft with 3 full bathrooms. We added a back porch and a front porch and wrought iron doors on the front exterior to help it stand out. We’re currently at about a month away from completion with a lot of minor details still to be taken care of. Come join us at Onsite to see our progress!”

If you are interested in learning about how to fix and flip or how to fix and flip even better, come check out the Onsite Renovation Group and learn from other active rehabbers who are willing to open their doors and share their insights and experiences with you.

with Carson Olinger

Register at AREIA.us/Online.

With the economy shifting, we as investors are poised to be standing on the precipice of a Real Estate Boom in our favor. While some may expect a recession, market indicators suggest real estate will continue to do well, especially with creative strategies. Subject-To Acquisition is a key strategy that should be a part of any investors approach.

Carson OlingerAt this month’s Atlanta REIA Online Webinar on Monday, December 14th from 6PM – 9PM, Carson Olinger will be our special guest speaker where he will discuss “The Upcoming Real Estate Boom and How to Target, Find & Structure a Deal”.

In his presentation, Carson will discuss the emerging market economy and how it will affect the Real Estate market, specifically in the Southeastern United States and how to Target, Find and Structure Deals “Subject To”.

The overview will discuss the concept and general approach to lock up deals legally and effectively, to not only protect yourself, but to protect the seller as well as the beginner investor. And then we will discuss in more detail, the mechanics of Subject-To acquisition and the related advantages to back end disposition strategies that Subject-To provides.

In his presentation, Carson will specially discuss market indicators in Georgia and the Southeast and how they align with this strategy. He will discuss what to look for in identifying these opportunities, how to market to these opportunities and then ultimately, how to take them down effectively, and with confidence. Learn how to structure a Subject To deal, and why they can be more lucrative than cash closing options and definitely better than hard money strategies.

These are just a few of the gems you will learn from Carson, so Register to Attend Now and join us Online on Monday, December 14th from 6 to 9PM to learn how to take down a Subject-To Deal! We hope to see you there!

How to Prepare for the Tsunami of Foreclosures Coming in 2021!
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaJoin Don DeRosa every month at 6PM SHARP at our Meeting-Before-the-Meeting that we like to call the High Tech Home Buying Creative Deal Structuring Subgroup  that meets one hour BEFORE the Atlanta REIA Main Monthly Event.

In this month’s Meeting Before the Meeting, Don is going to talk about the upcoming wave of foreclosures in 2021 due to covid.

Don says “With the CARES act coming to an end and no real stimulus package being presented. Homeowners will be faced with the very real possibility that their home may get foreclosed on in 2021. We as investors need to be prepared to offer solutions to those homeowners. In fact, the more solutions you, as the investor, can provide the greater chance you have to help the homeowner and/or buy their house. At this meeting before the meeting I will discuss what you need to have in your tool box in order to solve these very real problems.

I will discuss:

  • Why wholesaling is dying and how to adjust
  • What techniques will be most important to master in 2021
  • What tools are most effective in today’s investment works
  • What motivated customers you should be paying attention to

“As 2020’s doors come to a close, many more doors will be opening In 2021. Make sure you are ready to enter that room with confidence by being prepared. Come join me to make sure you are headed in the right direction.

Join us at the Meeting-Before-the-Meeting each month where Don will teach you about different real estate investing purchase and sale strategies to put more money in your pocket as well as state-of-the-art tools and techniques you’ll use to evaluate deals and figure out how to make them work.

Onsite PropertyPlease join us on Tuesday, December 15th 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.

Stephen & Lena JonesThis month’s Onsite Renovation Group meeting will be held at Stephen & Lena Jones’s newly newly renovated home located at 2320 Shasta Way NE, Atlanta, GA. Here is a little bit of information about the project that Stephen sent us…

Onsite Property“2320 Shasta Way is located in a quiet neighborhood in a section of unincorporated Dekalb running parallel to I-85 and Briarcliff Road near Lakeside High School. Like many houses in the neighborhood, the property is a ranch-style, four-sided brick home on a full basement, with a large, flat lot. The owners of the house kept the houses up very well, but had never updated it in any meaningful way, and sold it because they lived too far away to manage it as a rental. In June we purchased the house for $285,000 and it had three bedrooms, two baths plus a full bath in the basement.

We recognized from day one that the house was going to be very challenging due to the basement stairway being located between the den, living room and kitchen; and furthermore, the house footprint was very small, at around 1600 square feet. Lena and I realized that we would have to choose between having three bedrooms on the main level or having a large master suite. We also had to decide whether it was worth the money moving the stairway. To achieve an ARV over $550k we would need to make sure the house had four bedrooms, three baths.

Lena and I decided to keep the stairway where it was, but continue to open up the layout by spanning the main structural wall over the stairway and adjusting the kitchen to work around the obstruction. Knowing that a large portion of the buyer pool in the area consists of empty-nesters, and further that the house was a walk-in ranch, we decided to sacrifice a bedroom upstairs in order to deliver a large master bathroom and walk-in-closet. We framed in two bedrooms in the basement and replaced all systems and mechanicals in addition to 90% of the drywall in the house. Lastly, the 28-foot long carport was easy to convert into a garage with enough space left over for a large storage closet and mudroom. The house is currently under contract for $632,000 though we built the deal around a planned ARV of $550,000. The renovation, which was self-managed, cost $145,000.”

It’s been a full year this month since we saw one of Stephen & Lena’s rehabs, so please RSVP NOW and come join at Onsite for this rare opportunity to see one of their Gorgeous Rehabs!
