Shaun McCloskeyJoin us on Saturday, August 15th at 9AM at the DoubleTree Suites Tampa Bay at 3050 N Rocky Point Dr W in Tampa, FL to learn how to dominate your pre-foreclosure market from the master of pre-foreclosures, Shaun McCloskey!

Shaun is teaching students why this is THE YEAR for pre-foreclosure real estate investing. The market is hot, hot, hot! Banks have an overabundance of inventory and Shaun and his students are cashing in big time!

“In just the past two weeks alone, I’ve had two students call with record setting profits. At this workshop, I’ll show you the 7 steps to how Dave just cashed a $175,000 NET paycheck (that means after all expenses, this is how much he got to keep for himself!) I’ll also show you the exact steps that Dan used to close a deal that will earn him close to $300K in net profits in the next two weeks! All of what we’re sharing is what works TODAY!”

Here’s What You’ll Learn Saturday Morning at the Workshop!

  • How to cash in on short sales without EVER having to negotiate! Heck, we’ll even show you how you’ll never need to even make one single phone call to a bank to negotiate huge discounts!
  • Never Pay for Marketing Again: How to generate all the pre-foreclosure leads you’ll ever need -for the low, low cost of ZERO dollars!
  • Pre-Foreclosure Deal Finding Strategies: Learn how to find and pursue ONLY the best of the best short sale leads in your area. Pursue the best, forget the rest.
  • Unlimited FREE Leads; How to get more pre-foreclosure leads than you can handle, all begging you to take their house.
  • Deal Evaluation Demystified: Learn the 6 strategies I use to quickly find (and pick) the lowest hanging fruit that equates to the biggest possible paychecks.
  • APPROVED: Offer Structuring tactics designed to virtually guarantee the biggest discounts and most approved short sale offers. (I’m going to give you the exact criteria that banks use to determine whether or not they’ll approve your offer!)
  • Affective Negotiation Tactics that Work: Learn specifically how to structure your negotiations so that the banks are begging you to rob them of thousands of dollars worth of equity.
  • Bank Secrets Revealed: Discover the #1 secret to uncovering the lowest possible dollar amount that a lender will accept as a short sale payoff. (This one secret alone is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash in your pocket!)
  • Sell that House FAST!: Discover the brand new house selling strategy that virtually GUARANTEES you to sell any house in any market in 7 days or less!
  • Business Management Mastery: How to set your real estate business so that it runs on AUTOPILOT, allowing you to put cash in your pocket without having to work 70 hours per week like most other real estate investors.
  • Unlimited Deal Funding: How to access all the cash you’ll ever need to fund your real estate deals.
  • And much more…

AND THAT’S ALL BEFORE LUNCH!!! There’s More!

By the way, all of what we’re sharing is what works TODAY! It’s not some fluff that was written by someone who’s never been in the business. This stuff works right now, right here in the Tampa Bay Area.

I’m also going to be sharing how my student Jason Roberts made $3.7 MILLION dollars in his short sale business his very first year in with his short sale business, doing EXACTLY WHAT I’LL BE TEACHING YOU AT THIS EVENT! I’ll show you his exact recipe of how he did it – his exact marketing plan to get people to hand him the keys to their house, and how you can too.

This Saturday workshop is designed to provide you with everything you need to get your short sale business up and running within 7 days, so come prepared to take lots of notes!

GOREIA – July 23rd
with Ron LeGrand on
Making A Killing
With Pretty Houses

at the Hilton Orlando/Altamonte Springs

Tampa REIA Members & Guests Can
Print a FREE Guest Pass to Attend GoREIA
Be Sure to Let Robyn Thompson know you are with Tampa REIA

Ron LeGrandOur good friend Robyn Thompson of the Greater Orlando Real Estate Investors Association (GoREIA) asked me to invite you to GoREIA on Thursday, July 23rd from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at the Hilton Orlando/Altamonte Springs for their meeting with Ron LeGrand on “How to Make a Killing with Pretty Houses”! It’s a rare opportunity to spend the evening with a real estate investing legend and millionaire maker and the guy who started it all for myself, Robyn and thousands of others across Florida and around the country.

Here’s a special message from Ron that Robyn wanted me to forward to you…

“Why is it some people come into real estate and do very well, some netting seven figures their first year, and others put in the time but don’t get good results?

Is it the area?

No! It’s the same in every city!

Is it the economy?

No! Been that way for my entire 33 years during the good economies and the bad!

Is it the availability of money and credit?

No! Those who make the most use neither!

Then is it the training?

Not really! The people who excel get the same training as those who don’t!

It’s none of these but I do know what it is and I’m making it the subject of our evening together and that conversation will continue through Saturday at my all day seminar.

This career killer is fixable but if it isn’t fixed you’ll never do better than making a living at real estate no matter how hard or long you work.

There are people in every real estate group, including yours, with long careers in the house business who haven’t fixed it but seem to be doing well.

They aren’t doing well!

They’re only making a living… and I know why! So will you, after Thursday night and it’s my objective to help you make more than a living.

Record your favorite TV Shows and come see PAPA at the only REIA meeting I’ve agreed to do this entire year.”

GOREIA of Orlando presents…
with Ron LeGrand on
The Pretty House Business
with Ron LeGrand

On Saturday, July 25th from 9AM to 5PM
at the Hilton Orlando/Altamonte Springs

Ron LeGrandPerhaps you’re sick and tired of waiting for the real estate market to bounce back in the traditional sense, but we’ve got to tell you, you needn’t wait any longer. The TRUTH is, real estate investing is hot, hot, hot, right now! You’ve just got to change your “traditional” mindset a little.

That’s why you can’t afford to miss this one-day, all-day training event with Ron LeGrand on July 25th!

As the world’s leading authority on quick turning real estate, his methods are cutting edge, forward thinking and stunningly creative. His priority remains figuring out “how to” successfully structure investing deals in any economy and at any time. He’s done just that.

Once again, he’s taken an already proven technique and refined it so definitively, student partners recently closed two deals in two months netting them $250,000. Ron personally just closed a deal netting him a whopping $50,000 while never using one cent or his credit to do so.

Come learn how you can work less and focus on the most important things and quit working so hard on all the rest. You’ll learn by thinking “out of the box” and against conventional wisdom, so you too can surpass your current income.

You’ll also receive Ron’s book titled, “How to be a Quick Turn Real Estate Entrepreneur in Any Economy,” and he’ll autograph it for you at the event.

He’ll also be giving away $5,000 in cash and prizes.
It’ll be lots of fun too!

Don DeRosaTampa REIA is excited to announce that Don DeRosa will be our special guest speaker this month at our main monthly meeting on Thursday, June 11th at 6PM at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr West in Tampa, FL. Don will be teaching us how to use different technologies in our business to help us structure win-win deals.

Do you struggle with trying to figure out how to make a deal work other than just buying a property with cash? Maybe you realize that bank financing is often times more detrimental than helpful and don’t have the perfect credit needed to get a loan. Maybe you have the credit, but just don’t want to have to use it. Are you still working a J.O.B and don’t have a ton of time to devote to getting your real estate business up and running. Don is here to help!

Imagine having the freedom to create a lucrative real state investing with only working 15 hours a week. Yes, you read that correctly, only 15 hours. Don will be teaching you how you can do just that all from the palm of your hand!

Here are a few things that you will learn Thursday night…

10 Things You’ll Learn At The Meeting:

  • How to become a transaction engineer!
  • How to become a problem solver!
  • How to take every deal and figure out something to do with it!
  • How to find the money to fund your deals!
  • Why 4 out of 10 people have the potential to be a private lender and they may not even know it yet!
  • Examples of marketing using technology!
  • And much, much more!

It is an amazing time to be a real estate investor! Don’t look back 5 years from now and wish you had acted. Learn how to buy right… Learn how to Make More and Work Less, Right Now! Don’t miss this special presentation Thursday night. Also, plan to come spend an entire day with Don on Saturday, June 13th where he will be going more in depth with these strategies as well as teaching more about creative deal structuring and being completely paperless and mobile!

Creative Deal Structuring ManualWould you like to learn how to structure deals so you can buy houses with little or none of your own cash and none of your own credit? 15 hours a week. That’s all you need.

Imagine… taking any seller lead and being able to create a winning deal out of it… Making thousands of dollars where you thought there were none. No more wasted marketing dollars. No more wasted phone calls. No more wasted time.

Don will teach you how to fully leverage your investing business on mobile devices! Do you have an iPad, tablet, iPhone or smart phone that you’re using for Facebook, movies, games, maybe email, but not much else? Don uses the iPad exclusively to run his Real Estate Investment business…and you can too!

Take your business with you wherever you go; have all your comps, photos, and forms right in the palm of your hand!!! Leverage all of your mobile devices to make you the most effective, competitive, and profitable real estate investor you can be!

Information you will learn at the workshop includes…

  • How to become a “mindreader” to find exactly what the seller’s hot button are (so you can craft a deal the seller “Wants” to take!)
  • What your numbers need to be so that you make a profit EVERY time
  • How to make multiple offers to increase your chances of creating WIN/WIN deals
  • How you can communicate and explain your entire offer with a person who doesn’t speak your language. (Even if you barely passed English and have never taken a foreign language class!)
  • When to use “Subject To”, Owner Finance, Wrap Around Mortgages, Options, Lease Options Techniques, etc.
  • How to use Don’s patented “Green means ‘GO’, Red means ‘NO'” tools to negotiate for you (so that you never let your emotions talk you into making a bad deal!)
  • Comps for Rentals and for Purchases
  • Productivity apps to access files, data and info from anywhere
  • Make the iPad your mobile office, access your database
  • Track expenses and get rid of all those paper receipts.
  • Route calls right from your iPad
  • Send the sales contract to the lawyer for title search while you’re still at the seller’s home.
  • Have the seller sign electronically so you can both have a copy in real time!
  • And so much more!

Don will walk through actual deals step-by-step and he’ll show you how to easily evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller, and get the paperwork done in a snap.

What to Say to a Seller & How to Make a Written Offer

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

Tampa REIA Members Please RSVP on Meetup.com

Bill CookMany people have been asking for it, and we are excited to announce that Bill Cook will be our special guest speaker this month at our main monthly meeting on Thursday, May 14th at 6PM at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr West in Tampa, FL. Bill will be teaching us how to talk with sellers and make profitable, written offers on the spot.

When you meet with a seller, do you know what to say? Do you know the most important questions to ask? Can you make a written offer right there on the spot?

Again: Do you know how to make a written offer right there on the spot?

The #1 reason most would-be real estate investors fail is because of F-E-A-R! The fear of not knowing what to say, and the fear of a seller’s reaction to a low offer. What if you could make a safe, full-price offer to every seller?

How can you tell if fear is holding YOU back? Here’s an easy test: 1) How many sellers have you met with this month? 2) This year? If YOUR numbers are less than YOU think they should be, why are they less? Are you even tracking these two most-important numbers?

Remember: The alpha and omega of successful real estate investing is getting face-to-face with sellers and making a lot of written offers!

Do you want to SEE how to do this in action? Do you want to SEE where the best deals are right now? At Tampa REIA’s meeting on May 14th, Bill Cook will explain what he says to a seller, and how he makes a written offer right there on the spot!

Sure Bill can talk the talk, but he also walks the walk!

But wait… there’s more…

Get ready for something VERY special…something almost no real estate investing teacher will do. On Saturday, May 16th, Bill will spend the day with a select group of investors in neighborhoods SHOWING YOU how he knocks on homeowners’ doors, gets 8 out of 10 sellers to invite him in, and how he makes written offers right there on the spot!

When was the last time you spent the day with an experienced dealmaker getting face-to-face with sellers and making written offers in the real world? Ever?

Will you learn something new at the May 14th and 16th events? You bet! Will you see things you’ve never seen before? Positively! Will you be able to take what you’ve learned and put it to use the next day? Absolutely!

Bill & Kim Cook have been investing in real estate for more than twenty years! They’ve built their business square on the back of knocking on sellers’ doors. They have tons of experience at creatively constructing and funding win-win deals. Their investing portfolio is made up of single-family rental homes, mobile homes, a small mobile home park, plus notes and options.

10 Things You’ll Learn At The Meeting:

  1. The #1 cause of investor failure
  2. The two most important things an investor must do to succeed
  3. How to conquer the fear of meeting with a seller
  4. The most important thing you see at a seller’s house
  5. What is an offer – how is it different from a purchase contract
  6. How to write a win-win offer
  7. The difference between a terms offer and a price offer
  8. The two most important tools that every real estate investor needs to carry
  9. Is it crazy to offer $1 million for a $125,000 house – bet the answer will shock you!
  10. Those attending get a FREE copy of Bill’s Offer Form

Several people missed out on hearing Bill speak the last time he was here and have been asking when he was coming back for over a year now. Do not miss the opportunity to learn from this amazing and successful real estate investor!
