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!

Sat, June 15th in Tampa, FL
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


  • 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!
