Creative Deal Structuring!

with Leslie Mathis on Mon, Mar 20th at Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs
Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Pay $15 Online or $20 at the Door. RSVP Now!

Leslie MathisJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group on Monday, March 20th at 6:30PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, GA, with Leslie Mathis and learn all about how creative deal structuring can help you generate more profits for your real estate investing business.

When you find a seller with a real estate problem that you can’t solve by buying for cash at a discount, Creative Deal Structuring gives you many more tools in your toolbox for you to solve their problem…giving YOU more ways to PROFIT! Leslie will share with you those tools.

You’ll learn:

  • 4 Different Deal Structures
  • What you must get from your motivated sellers to structure deals that will solve their problems
  • 3 Ways You Can Make A Profit Using Creative Deal Structures
  • And answers to your questions and much more!

Leslie began her real estate career when she found herself broke and living in her parents garage after following the traditional path of “get a degree (she got two), get a job, and live the American Dream” failed her. With no money and no cred, she had to find a way out of her situation. When she was introduced to buying real estate without using her own money or cred, she embraced Creative Deal Structuring with a passion and was able to leave her job shortly thereafter. Leslie has never looked back, using Creative Deal Structuring to build financial freedom for herself. She wants you to know that you can do it too!

Pull Up Your Bootstraps &
Get Started Finding Deals…
No Bull!
with Leslie Mathis
Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Pay $15 Online or $20 at the Door. RSVP Now!

Leslie MathisCome join us at BIG on Monday, July 18th at 6:30PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, and learn ho to get started finding deal for your real estate investing business with special guest speaker Leslie Mathis.

So you’re new to real estate and want to get started on the right track. What do you need to do to make that happen? My name is Leslie Mathis, aka The Ca$h Cowgirl. When I first started my real estate career, I didn’t know anything else to do but to find a house through a realtor that needed work, put it under contract, go get a bank loan so I could close on it, then rehab it myself to get it ready to go back on the market for sale. That’s exactly what I did, and that first house flip went pretty well. It took about 3 months to complete the process, and we profited around $30,000.

RSVP Now!

Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on Meetup.com
Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on Meetup.com

With that first deal, I caught the real estate bug. I was hooked. I was ready to do another fix and flip. Then I quickly realized that those deals aren’t always readily on the market for me to just go pick another on up when I got ready to flip another house. I had to find another way to get more properties to buy and sell, and I needed more ways to buy and sell them. I became increasingly curious about what successful real estate investors were doing and how they were doing it. So I started surrounding myself with their influence and knowledge. I didn’t realize there was so much more to learn. Back then, I simply didn’t know what I didn’t know!

What I’m going to share with you this month at BIG is what I did, and continue to do to be successful in my real estate investing business. I invite you to join me on Monday, July 18th at 6:30PM as I share vital information you need to know to kick off your real estate investing. I’ll be covering things like:

  • NO and LOW COST ways to market to get leads
  • How to tell if a lead is a good deal or not
  • Where to find the good deals
  • How to talk with sellers
  • What to do to position yourself for success
  • And more!

Marketing for leads and finding deals in real estate isn’t so much hard as it is different from conventional thinking. Plan on joining us on Monday, July 18th, bring a friend or family members with you, keep an open mind, and be prepared to take lots of notes. This is one evening you don’t want to miss. See you there!

William CrowleyCome join us at BIG on Monday, May 16th at 6:30PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, where long time credit restoration expert, William Crowley, will be our special guest speaker.

William is an honorably discharged Marine and the owner of Complete Care Financial Services which has specialized in providing Credit Restoration Assistance to real estate investors, agents and other real estate professionals and their clients since 1999.

After getting fed up with all the misinformation from the Credit Reporting Agencies and all the hype from so called “Credit Repair Companies”, William created a powerful, yet simple, proven 4-Step Credit Restoration Formula that you can put to use immediately to start removing negative items from your credit reports or those of your clients.

During his presentation, William will teach how to use the Fair Credit Reporting Act to greatly benefit yourself, your family and your customers by deleting negative entries off their credit report in as little as 30 days. Negatives such as bankruptcies, tax liens, student loans, late payments, collections, repossessions, foreclosures, charge offs and much, much more.
