Tampa REIA Meeting & Vendor Trade Show – December 12th
at the Ramada Tampa Westshore
How to Double Your Productivity in 2020 by Being Laser Focused on What Matters Most
with Don DeRosa

RSVP on Facebook or RSVP on Meetup

Tampa REIA Members Can Attend for no charge.
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $15 or Pay $20 at the Door.

Don DeRosaHave you ever felt that you are unorganized? Unfocused? Easily distracted? Did you realize that the average person wastes, on average, 55 minutes every day looking for misplaced or lost
STUFF?

As a nation, Americans waste nine million hours per day by being unorganized and losing stuff. Here is a simple question. What does your desk look like? Do you have papers stacked high and scattered? Are you afraid to actually file something important away for fear you might never see it again? Do you start your day or year for that matter with the best intentions of accomplishing your goals only to have life de-rail you and then look back at the end of the year disappointed that you didn’t reach your goals AGAIN.

My name is Don DeRosa and on December 12th, I’m going to show you how to fix all of that and get organized, get focused and prioritized like a Pro. In this presentation I am going to introduce you the three reasons businesses fail and how to avoid them.

We will discuss how to set goals, when and how you can control the things going on around you and when it is time to move on. Why it is so important to set SMART goals and then how to prioritize them into actionable items.

We will also discuss what I call unifying principals (virtues) and how that plays a significant role in how you act and ultimately who you are. If you have never been to a time management seminar before this might just be the best seminar you attend all year. Here are a few things you will learn:

  • Three reasons businesses fail
  • Why it’s important to take action and stay focused
  • How to avoid being a dog chasing six rabbits and never catching anything
  • What are the five conditions of controlling events
  • 10 common characteristics of highly successful people
  • What is Congruity and why is it so important for your success
  • How to set priorities
  • How to organize your self using simple tools
  • Old school (paper and pen vs electronic)
  • Eight questions to help PRIORITIZE your daily actions
  • Why it’s CRITICAL to have SMART goals and not just a daily checklist

These are just a few of the thing you will learn at this exciting one of kind event. If you fall prey to any of these dream crushers then you owe it to yourself to attend. This event very well could change your whole life.

RSVP NOW and join us at Tampa REIA on Thursday, December 12th at Tampa REIA from 5PM to 9PM at the Ramada Tampa Westshore located at 1200 N Westshore Blvd, Tampa, FL to make the New Year and the New Decade your BEST EVER! We look forward to seeing you there!

Air Bnb & Short-Term Rental Market
How to Generate 2 to 3 Times the Monthly Cash Flow of a Regular Rental Property!
with Richard Munroe

There is an exciting new shared economy that has created a huge opportunity in real estate to increase your returns and profit, two to three times the regular rental amount of a traditional lease.

The short-term rental model keeps your property in better shape with the average stay of each guest limited to 3-4 days with professional cleanings and inspections in between each stay.

The cycle of evictions and minor rehabs in between each tenant is no longer an issue, along with, less wear and tear on the appliances, as most guests are eating out at local restaurants.

Richard MunroeMy name is Richard Munroe. On Thursday, December 12th at 5PM Sharp BEFORE the Tampa REIA Event, I will cover how to approach the market analysis and develop a conservative estimate of the short-term rental revenue based on the average nightly rate and the monthly occupancy percentage.

One of the main reasons for this industry’s growth and success is the Air Bnb platform. I will provide an introduction and overview of the platform from a host’s perspective. We will also cover the multiple ways to get started and how to navigate through all the new ordinances and laws on the city, county and state level.

Join me and we will discuss…

  • Shared Economy
  • Market Analysis
  • Air BNB Platform
  • Property Options
  • Legislative Efforts
  • Answers to your questions
  • And more!

RSVP NOW and come learn more about the lucrative opportunity that short-term rentals have to offer!

Negotiating with Sellers
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!

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!

Joe DillonPlease join us at Tampa REIA Main Meeting on Thursday, October 10th from 5PM to 9PM at the Ramada Tampa Westshore located at 1200 N Westshore Blvd, Tampa, FL where our special guest speaker will be Joe Dillon who will be talking about Advanced Wholesaling Strategies on “How to Structure a 7-Figure Wholesaling Operation to Generate Massive Amounts of Leads & Have Consistent Deal Flow!”

Let’s face it. The wholesaling business isn’t as easy as we thought it would be, especially in a competitive market like Tampa Bay. However, we all want that freedom that a truly automated real estate business can can give us, so what do we do?

In Joe’s presentation, he’s going to cover how to structure your Real Estate Company so that you can build a business that runs without you and be well on your way to earning 7 figures like you’ve always dreamed.

Joe says “The first thing we’ll go over are the different stages of scaling your business. There are different actions you need to take at certain points of scaling your business. We’re going to cover what these stages are, how to know when to go to the next stage, as well as common roadblocks you’ll encounter at each stage.”

We’ll dive into the 3 departments of a Wholesaling business: Marketing, Acquisitions, and Dispositions. We’ll cover the key processes you need to implement within these departments to have an optimized operation. You should have a sophisticated Marketing plan every month so you can generate a ton of leads at low cost.

Next, you need to convert as many of those leads as possible into contracts, so we’ll cover ninja Sales tactics to close more deals and lead management to manage your leads better than ever.

Lastly, once you have more contracts I’ll teach you Dispositions hacks so you can increase your average deal size by 20-30%.”

RSVP NOW and you’ll leave the meeting with a ton of golden nuggets to implement and a well-rounded vision for your New Advanced, Automated Wholesaling Business!

Do you feel like you waste a lot of time driving and not getting anything accomplished? Does the thought of talking with Sellers face-to-face make you nervous? Do you avoid knocking on doors because you’re afraid you don’t know what to say when someone comes to the door?

These are all very common fears that many beginning investors face when seeking out their first few deals. Learning how to deal with these issues early on can make the difference between your success and failure.

From Homeless to Real Estate Mogul in 4 Years
How to Overcome Adversity Through Creative Real Estate Investing
with Vicky Schettini
Anyone Can Register to Attend at No Charge!
Register Online at BIGO.co!

Vicky SchettiniMy name is Vicky Schettini. I am a single mom and in 2014 I was suffering from the empty nest syndrome. Living from paycheck to paycheck with only $25.00 to spare, I decided to build my Legacy and Wealth. I was ready to start investing in buy and hold properties. Desperately wanting and needing the security of passive income, I decided to move across country from California to Jackson, MS to be closer to my only daughter.

Things didn’t go as planned and I ended up homeless in a new town where I didn’t know a single person. I was on a mission to build my wealth and decided to do whatever it takes to succeed. I quickly started networking with anyone and everyone possible. I was laughed at and hung up on many times but failure was not an option, so I pushed on.

I finally found an investor who was willing to sell me one of his houses with owner financing. I had to be very creative in ways to come up with the down payment since I was broke. I was finally able to move into my new home and I only had $500 to my name. I taught myself how to rehab the property and put back on the market and had it rented within 4 hours! I have been creative in acquiring more properties and duplicating what I had done ever since.

In just short 4 years, I have exceeded my own goals. I own over 100 single family properties, 4 apartment complexes plus I am still to this day an active investor with a full team helping me. My portfolio continues to grow monthly. In the beginning, I didn’t have any money or credit, but that didn’t stop me from achieving my goals and dreams.

Today, my mission now is to help 1 million people just like me reach financial independence. I want to teach you what I did and how you can duplicate my system of success.

On the BIG Online Webinar I will teach you…

  • Creative ways to make money right away
  • The Bullet Proof Offer
  • Security
  • Be in the top 1% of wealthy investors
  • The unstoppable mindset
  • Answers to your questions and more!

If you have the drive to build your wealth, then I can easily teach you the rest. Please join me on the Beginning Investors Group Online Webinar on August 27th at 7PM ET to learn more! Register for the BIG Online Webinar Now!
