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!

Posted on August 3, 2019 by

Vicky SchettiniFour years ago, I was homeless. Now, I’m building homes for other people.

In 2012, I found myself working from paycheck-to-paycheck with ONLY $25 a month to spare. As a single mom, I wanted financial security for my child and I. I set out to make the right connections. I learned how flip homes in California. Although I had early success, legal expenses from the divorce were extracting all the profits. Undeterred, I was determined to build wealth and my legacy for my family. In 2074, my daughter graduated high school and started her new chapter going to LSUA. I was now one of the many women who have the empty-nest syndrome. I took a leap of faith and relocated to Jackson, MS to be closer to my only daughter. After several setbacks that left me homeless, I was finally able to close my first home with only $500 left to my name.

In 2018, I founded WIT (Whatever It Takes) Property Finders. I was already on track to accomplish my financial freedom building my wealth and legacy. From those humble beginnings, I stayed focused
and driven. I own and owned several multi-family complexes, over 700 SFRs (Single Family Residences), retail and commercial buildings. In the last four years, I have executed over 7,000 traditional and non-traditional transactions ranging from flips, buy and holds, notes, wraps, partials, and wholesales of single-family residences, multi-family, storage units, mobile home parks, retail and commercial buildings all combine totaling over $72 million in real estate.

Currently, I am the author of “Investing Real Estate Secrets,” set to launch in August of 2019. My most recent accomplishment, I have completed my offer, “Wealth and Empowerment – Real Estate for Financial Freedom” product. My goal is to use my product and all of the knowledge I’ve gained over the last few years to help at least one million people. Once again, I am in full speed, determined to make a difference in other peoples lives.

The Meeting Before the Meeting
How to Raise Private Money
with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaThere are three basic reasons businesses fail, Management, marketing and money. During this month’s meeting I will be showing you how to find all the money you need from people sitting right next to you when you did didn’t even know it.

During this meeting, I’m going to show you that four out of every 10 people you meet have the potential to be your private lender even though you don’t even realize it.

I will discuss the “Do’s and Don’ts” of borrowing money from private individuals. Often times you hear people say “you don’t need money to buy real estate” and although this is true, the reality is that it is so much easier with money.

So, if you’re interested in finding out how you can find all the private lenders you can get your hands on, then be sure to attend this session. Here’s just a few of the things that I will discuss…

  • How to create an elevator speech
  • What to say and what not to say to Potential private lenders
  • How to structure of them
  • How to find them with a few simple questions

These are just a few of the questions I will be answering, so please come out and join me at 5PM if you want to learn how to get private individuals to lend you money to fund your deals.

Randy Hughes

Posted on June 4, 2019 by

Randy HughesRandy Hughes, aka Mr. Land Trust, started life out on the wrong side of the railroad tracks. His father was an alcoholic and his mother was left to raise four children on a clerk’s wages. None of his relatives owned their own business … everyone worked for wages.

His father charged the weekly groceries so that the family would have food on the table. There was no stable income for any future education much less the current needs of the family.

No intellectual or financial direction was taught in his schools or church.  No blood relative had anything to offer other than “working for the man” at an hourly wage. Bank savings and financial security was what only the rich had. He was doomed for financial failure and unhappiness for the rest of his life.

Randy knew that there MUST be a better way to live. He decided to break the cycle of poverty in his family genes. Education came first. Randy graduated from Eastern Illinois University and began buying single family homes for rental while in college. After college, the Randy tried many different types of businesses, but always came back to the Single Family Home as the IDEAL investment. Since purchasing his first rental house in 1969, Randy hasn’t looked back!  Read More→

Why is Real Estate the
IDEAL Investment Strategy?

with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaHey folks, Don DeRosa here… I’d like to personally invite you to kick off the monthly Atlanta REIA Meeting with me on June 10th at 5PM Sharp.

At this special session on “Buying Houses Subject-To” I will show you how to buy your next 1) personal residence, 2) long term rental or 3) short term vacation rental without having use your own cash or cred or having to go to the bank for a loan.

Many people believe that stocks and bonds are the way to wealth in America. Many people also believe that you have to buy multiple properties a month to be successful in real estate. Well, I am going to show you how neither of those two statements are true.

I’m going to show you how quality beats quantity every time. At the meeting before the meeting I am going to show you why real estate is the IDEAL investment strategy to create wealth hands down.

I will show you how to build a pretty healthy retirement nest egg on only a few properties. I will share how buying properties using other people’s money and other people’s cred is the only way to go.

You will learn:

  • Why income producing properties are SO important
  • How real estate is the one true tax shelter
  • How simply utilizing TIME is the BEST way to creating wealth
  • How to retire wealthy simply buy walking to the mailbox every month
  • How to use small amounts of cash ( or none at all ) to buy all the properties you want and need.

Join me at 5PM SHARP on Thursday, June 13th and learn arguably the BEST wealth building technique on the planet!

Tampa REIA Presents the BRAND NEW:
Pretty House Workshop
Buying Houses “Subject-To”
in Today’s Real Estate Market
Full Day Workshop with Don DeRosa
Sat, June 15th from 9AM – 7PM
Ramada Tampa Westshore
1200 N Westshore Blvd, Tampa, FL
*2-for-1 Early Registration Special for Members Only. Register Now!

Don DeRosaMy name is Don DeRosa. I am a real estate trainer, mentor and full-time real estate investor actively buying, selling and holding properties each month for huge profits and long-term cash flow.

When I first started almost 22 years ago, I thought I wanted to be a wholesaler and flip contracts because I thought I needed a bunch of cash to buy and hold, or buy and rehab houses. I was like everyone else starting out in this business. I didn’t have lots of money, so I thought wholesaling was the easy way to go.

Boy was I wrong. Fortunately for me I was introduced to a buying technique called “Subject-To” by a friend. This is a technique where the Seller deeds the property over to you (you own it) but leaves the loan in place and you simply continue to make the existing payments (you don’t have to go to the bank and qualify).

Well I must say this technique changed my life. Within the first 30 days of learning the Subject-To technique I bought 4 houses for one dollar each (yes, you read that correctly) and I have been buying them that way ever since.

I no longer have to sell the “Golden Goose” to make lots of money. Today I am working furiously at buying properties “Subject-To” using the existing financing on the seller’s home instead of having to go to a bank or a hard money lender for funding. This allows me to buy multiple properties fast, without coming up with all the purchase funds on the front end.

Subject-To is the perfect strategy to use in today’s market where easy funding is not readily available for investors to buy pretty houses. Buying houses “Subject-To” the existing finances is by far the most powerful technique is real estate today. You can control and own an enormous amount of real estate with very little money. Understanding how to get sellers to finance your deals is the ultimate investment strategy.

If you’re a person who doesn’t have a lot of cash, or doesn’t have good credit or simply doesn’t want to use your credit, then you need to attend the upcoming Tampa REIA meeting where I will be teaching you how to effectively use this technique. Learning this technique may very well be a life changing event for you like it was for me.

Join me on Saturday, June 15th from 9AM to 6PM at the Ramada Tampa Westshore, at 1200 N Westshore Blvd, Tampa, FL, and I will share with you, many of the Subject-To tools and techniques I use every day to create winning deals for myself as well as my buyers and sellers.

I will demonstrate how to apply these strategies, tools and techniques, and show you exactly how to evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller and get the paperwork done almost instantly and without any of the hard work you normally do to get your deals done.

By the end of the presentation, you’ll know how to buy houses…

  • Without using your own credit
  • Without having to sign personally on a note
  • Without having to qualify for a mortgage
  • Without having much money

Also…

  • How to recognize a “Subject To” opportunity and buy with little or no money!
  • How to evaluate any lead and decide whether this is a winner for you and how much money you’ll make before you make your offer
  • How to combine buying strategies and exit strategies – that work right now, in 2019
  • How to structure a deal in less than 10 minutes, so that you make a minimum of $20,000 on it, choosing from multiple purchase and exist strategies
  • How to determine the seller’s hot buttons so you can craft a deal the seller can’t refuse
  • How to use my proprietary tools to negotiate for you, so you never let your emotions talk you into making a bad deal!
  • And how to find all the money you need to do these deals, so you have zero money out of your pocket.

Join me as I really drive these points home and give you all the Subject-To details you need to succeed in real estate investing. Once you are armed with my training and the tools, you will be able to do deals you never thought possible! RSVP NOW & DON’T MISS IT!

Kathy KennebrookJoin us at Tampa REIA on Thursday, May 9th from 5PM-9PM at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr. West in Tampa, FL with special guest speakers, Kathy Kennebrook, the Marketing Magic Lady, from Bradenton, FL.

This is going to be an incredible session where Kathy is going to share all of her insider secrets of the ins and outs of buying and selling houses quickly no matter what your real estate market is doing.

You’re going to learn how Kathy generates a seven-figure income using her unique direct mail strategies to locate qualified motivated sellers and buyers, then how she automates the follow up, and the buying process.

And… she’s going to teach you how to do the same thing in your pajamas without licking a single stamp. She is also going to teach you how you can automate the offer making and follow up process with these motivated sellers without ever leaving your desk.

At this meeting, you will learn:

  • How to carve a unique niche market for yourself that other investors simply don’t know about.

  • How to develop a flexible marketing plan for your business and create incredible deals no matter what your real estate market is doing.

  • How to implement a dummy proof, affordable and efficient “cookie cutter” system that will have motivated sellers practically begging you to take their properties off their hands.

  • How to automate your systems including the offer making process and selling your properties quickly. This one nugget alone can save you hundreds of hours and earn you thousands of dollars each year.

  • How to turn small marketing dollars into BIG profits with minimal effort and HUGE results!

  • How to start from scratch and complete your first deal within 60 days.

  • How to find the owners of vacant, abandoned houses even when they don’t want to be found.

  • How to find and make incredible deals with out-of-state owners, quit claim deeds, vacant houses, expired listings and more!

  • How to make the deal on the phone before you ever go see a property.

  • How to use wholesale buyers to bird dog for you, build your lead base and make even more money for you by buying the properties from you when you get them under contract.

  • How to find and work with owners of properties with no mortgages and create owner financing on these beautiful properties in excellent neighborhoods.

  • All this and answers to your burning marketing questions!

Kathy Kennebrook is the best there is at creating a marketing machine for your real estate business and providing the tools you need to follow up with sellers and buyers to get your properties bought and sold quickly.

You can’t afford to miss this incredible training. Join us Tampa REIA on Thursday, May 8th and get the edge your financial future depends on. RSVP NOW & DON’T MISS THIS EVENT!
