Chris RoodPlease join us at Tampa REIA Main Meeting on Thursday, November 14th from 5PM to 9PM at the Ramada Tampa Westshore located at 1200 N Westshore Blvd, Tampa, FL where our special guest speaker will be Chris Rood who will be talking about “Why Most People Fail as Entrepreneurs”

Chris says “I have been an entrepreneur for 18 years and I know what it takes to have a successful business and what it takes to scale a Real Estate Investing business to 6 markets in 4 states!

The secret is not what you think it is. It’s not a secret mailing list or some secret Facebook ad. This piece of advice hovers above all tactical marketing skills”

Join me at Tampa REIA where I will be covering why most people fail as Real Estate Entrepreneurs and Entrepreneurs in general. I will be covering why you can’t scale you’re wholesaling business. Why you don’t have to do 20 deals a month to make a lot of money in this business.

I will be covering why you have to be dynamic as an investor and not be a one trick pony. Why your personal and family life have to be in order to be successful and how to brand yourself in your market.

Join Chris at the Tampa REIA Meeting where he will be covering…

  • Wholesaling
  • Wholetailing
  • Flipping
  • Private money
  • Mobile home parks
  • Personal development
  • Answering your questions
  • And more!

RSVP NOW and join us at Thursday, November 14th at Tampa REIA from 5PM to 9PM at the Ramada Tampa Westshore located at 1200 N Westshore Blvd, Tampa, FL! We look forward to seeing you there!

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 Tampa REIA Main Monthly Event.

There is nothing worse than losing a deal because you didn’t know the right things to say when negotiating with the seller. Does the fear of this happening prevent you from achieving your goals? Negotiating may seem scary to many people because they are afraid of offending the seller and don’t want to go in with a “low-ball” offer. Don DeRosa is here to help!

Don is a leading expert on negotiations and he wants to share with you what he knows to help you overcome your fears and achieve your goals. On Thursday, Don will be teaching:

  • 3 variables to every negotiation
  • How to recognize non-verbal clues and use them to your advantage
  • How to plan and gather information for successful negotiations
  • How to use state of the art tools to do all your negotiating for you

Negotiating does not have to be something that makes you shudder. Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn about successful negotiating from an expert real estate investor who negotiates killer deals every day!

Each month, Don will teach you about different real estsate 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.

Property Protege GroupAre you wanting to learn how to invest in real estate but don’t know where to begin, how to really crank things up or don’t want to do it alone?

If so, please join us Wed at 6:30PM at the Property Protege Group hosted by Don DeRosa and Dustin Griffin. This Month we meet at the 1727 Coachman Plaza Dr, Clearwater, FL at 6:30PM.

ALL TAMPA REIA MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND THEIR FIRST PPG MEETING AT NO CHARGE, but seating is extremely limited, so arrive early to get a seat.

In a competitive market it is absolutely essential that you understand how to make offers very very quickly. It could mean the difference between a complete waste of your time because someone beat you to it,or the deal of a lifetime.

Understanding your numbers and your ability to quickly assess ARV (After Repair Value), repairs, holding costs and selling costs are the corner stones of every successful real estate business. Knowing how to do this and do it accurately is not very difficult. However, doing it accurately and QUICKLY is something totally different.

In this session, we are going to show you how to not only figure out what your ARV is quickly and accurately as possible, but also show you how you can make offers lightning fast. We’re also going to show you how to run your entire business from the palm of your hands.

Becoming a mobile real estate investor is more important now than ever before. Being able to do your due diligence, evaluate properties, sign contracts and manging everything from contract to close right in the palm of your hands is no longer just a nice thing to have. It is now an essential part of every real estate investor. It will give you the edge that you need in a very competitive market place.

We will show you:

  • What are the most important questions to ask sellers every time you meet them (16 to be exact)
  • How to determine After Repair Value in seconds
  • How to SWAG repairs lightning fast so you can get your house under contract before anyone else
  • How to sign contracts, order title and finish all your paperwork before you ever leave the sellers house
  • How to perform hours of due diligence in minutes just by a few clicks of a button
  • How to find sellers in seconds
  • How to eliminate old antiquated filing systems and put it in the palm of your hands
  • How to never lose information every again
  • Plus a whole lot more…

If you want to take your real estate business to the next level, then you don’t want to miss this meeting. We look forward to seeing you there!

Sat, November 16th in Tampa, FL
Expert Negotiating Tactics
The Ultimate 1 Day Workshop on How to Easily Negotiate with Sellers to Create Win-Win Situations!
A Full Day Workshop with Don DeRosa
Saturday, November 16th, 8AM-6PM
Ramada Tampa Westshore
1200 N Westshore Blvd, Tampa, FL

“I like to think of sales as the ability to gracefully persuade, not manipulate, a person or persons into a win-win situation.”” ~ Bo Bennett

Don DeRosaWas your stomach tied up in knots as you walked in to your first deal? Mine was! Have you done enough deals so you feel comfortable negotiating? Or does it still give you butterflies? How would you like some tips to make negotiations much easier? To get that bargain-basement price, and still meet your seller’s needs? Then this upcoming Expert Negotiating Tactics Workshop on Saturday, November 16th is for you!

There’s no real mystery to negotiating. We do it every day, in every relationship. Your family negotiates every time you decide what to watch on TV. You negotiate with your spouse every time you figure out who is going to pick up the kids from school. You’re already doing it you just don’t realize it. But for some reason when people say the word “negotiation” people get nervous.

Well, for one thing, negotiation is a form of sales. In other words, buying is selling. Because when you make an offer on a house, you’re hoping to sell your offer to the other side. And being a salesperson scares a lot of people.

If you are lacking this confidence as an investor then this might be the most important workshop you attend all year. In order to be an expert negotiator, you need to make sure you are:

  • Meeting the seller’s needs
  • Building rapport with the seller
  • Believing in your offer
  • Providing the seller with an objective basis for your offer
  • Overcoming the seller’s objections

Negotiating does not have to be something that makes you shudder. After this workshop, you will feel confident and have the knowledge and tools at your disposal to be able to walk into any negotiation feeling fully prepared to create a win-win deal.

At this workshop, you will learn about…

  • 3 variables to every negotiation
  • How to recognize non-verbal clues and use them to your advantage
  • How to plan and gather information for successful negotiations
  • 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 create win-win deals so that everyone leaves happy
  • And much, much more!

Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn how to be an expert real estate deal negotiator!
