Making Sellers Multiple Offers in Minutes!
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaHey folks, Don DeRosa here… I’d like to personally invite you to kick off the monthly Tampa REIA Meeting with me on April 11th 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 Thursday, April 11th.
