Don DeRosaDon DeRosa and Bill Cook are both successful, been-there-and-done-that investors today. Each has been investing since the mid 1990’s. They have conducted seperate successful REIA’s. They have the same teachers that they have learned from. There is little in real estate that they have not come across. They are both National Speakers and teachers. Combined, they have more than 40 years of creative deal-making experience. Both gentlemen are highly sought-after for their advice and wisdom to help other investors find their success.

Bill CookNow, imagine what they were like when they were baby real estate investors. What did Bill and Don know about real estate investing, creative funding and entities? As they are going to demonstrate at Atlanta REIA’s Main Monthly Event on Monday, September 11th starting at 5PM at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia located at 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Rd, Atlanta, GA, they didn’t know much about real estate then. You will find it hard to believe some of the things they did and even what they didn’t do. It will shock and surprise you!

How did Don and Bill survive the long, hard hours, the frustrations, the failures, and the difficulties. What kept them going when they hit numberous brick walls? Yes, they experienced trials, tribulations just like you. They also discovered some secret ingredients along the way to begin to experience success.

A common mistake many real estate investors make is comparing their know how to that of someone who’s been investing for decades, someone who has done hundreds of deals and made thousands of written offers.

How did Bill and Don move from basic, bare-bone deals, to deals full of imagination and creativity – deals that don’t involve institutional funding? What did they do that was game-changing? Make the decision NOW to attend our September 11th event and find the answers you seek.

Here are more items you will learn from this One-Of-A-Kind Event:

  • You’ll see one of Bill and Don’s most recent deals – how it was found, constructed, funded and what they did with it.
  • Next, you’ll see one of the first deals Don and Bill did back in the 90’s. Their lack of creativity will astound you!
  • What steps did Don and Bill take to prevent their failure?
  • What are the top 10 reasons 90% of would-be investors fail?
  • What are the best ways for you to learn about real estate investing?
  • What are the top 10 things Bill and Don did that allowed them to achieve financial freedom and how you can do that too?

Listen to me, There is no magic pill that will turn you into an instant real estate sage. We all learn in small, individual layers – like layers of a cake. This is one of the reasons to come to events like this one. To lean on each other and find strength, and listen to knowledge being passed on to you from the now experienced investors. Get excited and RSVP NOW!

Is It a Deal or No Deal?
Sept. 11th Meeting Before the Meeting
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaJoin Don DeRosa at the High Tech Home Buying Creative Deal Structuring Subgroup on Monday, September 11th from 5PM to 6PM at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting at Crown Plaza Ravinia where he will be teaching about “Doing Your Due Diligence!”

When you come across a lead, do you know how to look at the information, analyze it and determine what to do with it? Do you know if it is a “Deal or No Deal”? If the answer is “No” then you should definitely attend this meeting.

The biggest reason most investors lose deals is because they don’t know how to gather the right information and then analyze it so they can make money. There is nothing worse than losing a deal because you didn’t know your numbers.

Would you like to learn multiple ways to structure every deal you are considering buying? This is exactly what Don DeRosa will teach you. Come learn how to be a transaction engineer.

At this meeting you will learn about…

  • How to become a transaction engineer
  • How to Determining Values
  • How to find comparable
  • How to decide what comparable to use
  • 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
