The 4 Steps to Building an Insanely Profitable Real Estate Business (that You’ll Also Fall in Love With)
Shaun McCloskey, St. Louis MO
Saturday, November 7th 11:00am
(Eastern Time Zone)

So much of what we learn about real estate is strategic: HOW do I [find deals, get money, manage tenants, do renovations].

And that’s all important, but if you want to build a profitable, sustainable, and FUN real estate career, it’s JUST as important to step back and ask bigger questions, like:

  • “Am I sure that I’m focusing my time and efforts on the right things?”
  • “Is the strategy I’m pursuing the right fit for me, in the long run?”
  • “Am I building a business that supports my bigger vision for my life, or one that’s going to consume all of my time and energy?”
  • “Am I loving what I’m doing, or do I do it for the money?”

Here’s a big secret that goes against the grain of what you may believe about real estate success: it’s not about who you are, or where you came from, or how hard you hustle. It’s about doing what most people don’t: thoughtfully, intentionally designing a business that fits your vision, your lifestyle, your passions, and your personality.

Shaun McCloskey has been helping some of the highest-level real estate investors and gurus in the country do exactly that for over a decade, and now he’s making a very rare association appearance to help US have a more prosperous AND joyful 2020. You’ll leave this meeting knowing:

  • Why goal setting alone doesn’t work. Not for ANYONE.
  • Why making business plans based on financial considerations alone is the certain death of your business
  • Why working more hours in your business probably makes you LESS productive
  • How to create a strategic game plan for your business that will ACTUALLY get you from where you are now, to where you want to be in just 6-12 months—not years or decades, like it takes most people

Make the next few year the best of your life WHATEVER is happening ‘out there’, with the tools you need to envision and build not just the business, but the LIFE that creates the meaning, impact, fulfillment, and prosperity you’ve always dreamed of.

Your Personal Stimulus Plan: Why Buying Notes is the Best Money-Making Strategy in the Current Market
Donna Bauer, Cincinnati, OH
Saturday, November 7th 1:00pm
(Eastern Time Zone)

Something important happens in the note world when the real estate market gets wonky and defaults skyrocket: people and institutions who hold notes and mortgages get more motivated to turn them into cash, and at lower prices.

Since that’s the market RIGHT NOW, there’s a LOT of opportunity for people who know how to buy, and to flip, notes and mortgages—and no one knows this better than Donna Bauer, who’s seen these market conditions many times in her 30+ years in the note world.

Nationally known as “The Original Note Buyer®,” Donna is famous both for her expertise in making money investing in notes or flipping them for quick cash profits, and for her ability to explain the process in terms that even new investors can understand.

She’ll explain:

  • How note buying ‘works’
  • The critical factors that help you decide whether a note deal is a gold mine or a potential land mine
  • Why note buying puts you more in control of your market, with a lot less risk and responsibility

There’s a reason that thousands of note investors, and her peers in the business, think Donna is the best.  Find out for yourself, by learning what she’s doing now to make sure that the recession doesn’t happen to her and her family.

How Controlling All that Data Makes You More Successful, Faster
Kevin Carroll, St. Louis, MO
Saturday, November 7th 1:00 pm
(Eastern Time Zone)

If you’re looking to build a successful, well-oiled real estate ‘machine’, you MUST get control of all the pieces of important data that flow into your business daily.

From seller leads, to follow-ups, to information about your buyers, private lenders, birddogs, undeliverable addresses, online ad responses and more, if you can’t organize it, you can’t use it to make more money. And more importantly, if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.

REIBlackbook is a CRM built for real estate entrepreneurs that does a whole lot more than just keep your data in one place and track it. After more than a decade of studying the results investors get when they get organized, they’ve got reams of reliable information about ‘best practices’ for your data collection, tracking, and marketing, and that’s what Kevin will share here, along with demonstrating how REIBlackbook serves that need.

There are massive opportunities coming in the apartment world, the likes of which we haven’t seen in a decade.

Dwan Bent-Twyford, Bailey, CO
Saturday, November 14th 11:00am – 3:00pm
(Eastern Time Zone)

  • Why being able to generate big chunks of cash on a regular basis can make the difference between a lean recession and a prosperous recession for you

How to Blow Up Your Pipeline with Seller Leads and Automate Your Marketing
Kathy Kennebrook, Bradenton, FL

For now, the market remains super-tight, and 99% of the great deals out there are off-market. So what’s an investor to do?

Get serious about your seller marketing, that’s what!

And no one is more experienced in turning marketing into leads, into deals, than Kathy Kennebrook, who’s used her more-or-less hands-off system to generate 7 figures a year in cash from flips, equity and cash flow from rentals, cash buyers, and more.

She’ll share:

  • How to reach out to them, and what to say, to get your phone ringing off the hook
  • A funny little trick that gets sellers to pre-screen THEMSELVES for motivation
  • How to automate your marketing system (because, c’mon, if you don’t, you’re not going to stick with it—and consistency is key!

The S.W.A.T. (Secret Ways and Techniques) Method of Saving 25%-50% on Rehabs
Pete Youngs, Atlanta, GA

Ever wonder whether there’s a way to complete rehabs and turnovers for less money?

If anyone would know, it’d probably be someone who’s been on both the contractor side and the investor side of the fence for over 3 decades, right?

That’s Pete Youngs. As a professional contractor, his company was so competitive that it landed the job of renovating the living quarters for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, and who as a real estate investor has used his ‘inside knowledge’ to pay a fraction of what a lot of us do to fix up properties.

He’ll share:

  • Cheap ways to get good results that your contractors already know, but you probably don’t
  • How to make sure you’re getting the best bids from your contractors

How to make thousands more from every rehab and turnover you do

How to Use the Law to Make More Money—And Protect What You Have
Lee Phillips, Esq., Provo, UT

We all know that wealthy people work hard to legally reduce their taxes and protect their assets…and that’s a big part of how they GET and STAY wealthy.

You probably ought to be doing the same thing.

Attorney Lee Phillips learned this the hard way, when a severe illness sidelined him for 3 years and he nearly lost everything he had; that’s when he dedicated himself to learning everything he could about how to use the legal and tax system to keep his clients from experiencing the same thing.

No matter how much you THINK you know about ‘business structures’, Lee’s 40 years of research and experience is going to stun you—and maybe your attorney or CPA, too.

He’ll share:

  • How to set up your business to add 15% more profit to your take-home pay
  • How to protect your properties and the equity you’re building in them from an economic or social meltdown
  • Why you need to spend some time and effort PROTECTING what you’re building, before someone, or some circumstance, threatens to take it all away from you.

Filthy Riches: How to Stop Rehabbing and Renting, and Make Almost-Embarrassing Returns Creating Homeowners, Instead
Larry Goins, Lake Wylie, SC

At this moment in history, lots of real estate entrepreneurs are experiencing major stress over 2 issues: the cost and difficulty of finding contractors who can even get to a rehab in less than 6 months, and concerns over whether it’s time to get out of the rental property business altogether.

So what if there were a way to NOT rehab houses, get rid of the management and maintenance inherent in rentals, make gobs of money, AND do your own part to solve the ‘affordable housing crisis’ in your community?

There is, and it’s the little-known (but long practiced) strategy of “Work for Equity” deals, where you sell houses you’d normally rent or rehab to people qualified to rehab them themselves but who could never qualify for a bank loan…and you make double-digit returns on your investment by providing the financing for those buyers (don’t worry, you don’t actually have to have your OWN money to do this…he’ll explain)

Larry Goins may have done more of these deals than anyone in the U.S., and he’ll be joining us to explain:

  • Which properties, in which neighborhoods, work best for this strategy, and how he finds them
  • How to structure these deals so they’re win-win-win (for you, your buyers, and the community)
  • The math of why it’s common to get 20%+ returns on your investment—it’s not because you’re charging 20% interest!

What can go wrong, and what to do about it, and why it’s not that big a deal when it does

How to Help Homeowners in the Coming Foreclosure Crisis (and Make Money Doing It) with Short Sales
Dwan Bent-Twyford, Bailey, CO

With nearly 7% of American homeowners and housing providers now delinquent on their mortgage notes, it’s fair to say that we’ll probably see a surge in foreclosures in 2021.

Foreclosures are tough on families, banks, communities, and the economy, and what YOU can do to prevent them is buy those houses before they actually hit the auction block, directly from the owners, giving them the opportunity to save their dignity, and get some control of their unfortunate situation.

The challenge, of course, is that most pre-foreclosure sellers are underwater—they owe the bank more than the property is worth—which means you’d better get good at navigating the short sale process FAST.

To help you start that process, we’re bringing you Dwan Bent-Twyford, who’s been making money buying short sales properties for over 2 decades. She’ll kick off your journey by sharing important, experienced-based, tips like:

  • How to find prospects in pre-foreclosure BEFORE anyone else does
  • How to get to the right person at the bank, so you can get a “Yes” faster
  • 5 from-the-trenches tips for dealing with difficult banks

Why You Should be Buying Apartments, Not Houses
Anthony Chara, Aurora, CO

If you’re looking for major cash flow, Antony Chara asks, “Why are you buying units one at a time, when ONE big apartment building (or a handful of smaller ones, if that’s what you prefer) could provide all you need?”

And since the “over-exuberance” in the apartment market over the last few years (and the economic turbulence we’re likely to see in the next few) are likely to lead to a LOT of bargain buying opportunities for people who are prepared to recognize and grab them, we thought it would be a good time to bring back an expert with decades of experience and deals on over 1,600 units in 14 states under his belt, to show you:

  • How if you want to buy apartment buildings, you can just buy apartment buildings, even if you’re a beginner who’s never owned a rental in your life
  • The “Four Fs” of a profitable apartment deal: how to Find it, Figure it, Fund it, and Finish it
  • How you can use other people’s money, credit, and efforts to buy and manage apartments…in fact, that’s the way it’s USUALLY done…

How to Make Bigger Spreads (with Less Competition) Flipping Land & Lots
Jack Bosch, Phoenix, AZ

Too much competition out there for houses and apartments?

Then try a completely new property class that very few of your competitors know ANYTHING about: raw land. It’s simple to evaluate, there’s no need to know anything about rehab, and it’s the one cash strategy that can literally be done 100% virtually.

Jack Bosch has been buying and selling land since 2002, and he’s ready to share what he’s learned about flipping land nationwide. Come and learn:

  • The difference between ‘trash’ land and high-quality, flip-able land
  • Why you can buy land for as little as 5% of value, and sell it for multiple times that
  • How to create passive cash flow when you flip. Yeah, seriously

Hacking Finance: How to Make the System Work for You, Instead of Against You
George Antone, San Jose, CA

If you’ve ever suspected that truly wealthy people understand the monetary system better than you do, you’re right. They use debt to build wealth, make inflation work in their favor, and have access to investments you never get the hear about.

George Antone has spent decades learning about and implementing “The Wealthy Code”—in fact, he wrote a best-selling book by that name—and sharing with normal people like you and me how to access the same legal and financial benefits and loopholes that the super-rich do.

He’ll share:

  • How you can get money at 0% interest and use it to earn 6-8% interest
  • How to boost your monthly cash flow without actually earning more
  • Why debt, structured right, helps you beat inflation and grow wealth faster

Darrin Carey is a full-time real estate investor and hard money lender from the Dayton, Ohio area

How to Make Yourself Irresistible to Lenders
Merrill Chandler, CreditSense

Would $1 million in unsecured, stated-income, business lines of credit make your buying business easer? Learn what you need to do to get these lines (which average 3-6% interest) without collateral, tax returns, financials or income verification.

Do You Have the Right Property Insurance for Today’s Risks?
Kevin Jenkins, Noel Selewski Insurance

Looking for better coverage options for your rentals, rehabs, and even home and car? Make sure you’ve heard what they are, from a company with 50 years’ experience dealing with the “unique situations” that are actually common to landlords and business owners.

My Journey to Debt-Free Investing
Dave Peters, Columbus OH

Recessions can be risky times for housing providers: higher vacancies and lower rents can destroy a portfolio pretty fast, unless, of course, you don’t have mortgages on your properties. And there’s no reason to wait 20 years until those mortgages pay off; if you’re willing to make some sacrifices and get creative now, you can do it in less than a decade. Dave Peters did, and he’ll show you exactly how.

How to Estimate Repair Costs Right
Jerry Fink, Cincinnati OH/Bradenton FL

You can get away with sloppy repair estimating when the market is hot; if you go over budget, increasing prices might just save you. In a soft market, you’d better know that you’re RIGHT when you estimate costs. Jerry will share the right process for getting the right numbers BEFORE you buy.

How to be a Successful Private Lender
Jeff Cichoki, Green Bay, WI

Private lending can be a great, passive income strategy—unless you make loans to the wrong borrowers, on the wrong properties, with the wrong terms. Don’t be one of the thousands of lenders who lose some, or all, of their money every year to fraud, bad decisions, and just plain bad paperwork. Don’t make a private, or hard money, loan until you’ve heard about the due diligence, safeties, and documents you need to have in place to protect your investment.

How to Build a Rental Business that Serves You (Instead of the other way around)
Mark Dolfini, AKA the Landlord Coach, Lafayette, IL

Too many housing providers find themselves ‘stuck’: unable to reach the ultimate goal of financial independence because they can’t grow beyond just a few properties.

Mark Dolfini knows why—he’s coached dozens of “stuck” rental property owners through the process of getting their business under control, and making room for more assets, and more free time, with less wasted time and hassle.

He’ll share:

  • Why most rental housing providers make the basic mistake of buying the wrong properties at the wrong prices to start with—and how to fix that
  • What resources and people you need to put in place NOW, before you acquire one more rental, that will take a lot of the day-to-day burdens off your back

Systems that should run your rentals on a monthly and annual basis (unless you LIKE your business running you)

How to Pay off $984,711 in Debt in 39 Months (Without Working Harder)
Brent Kesler, The Money Multiplier

Most Americans deal with debt the old-fashioned way: by paying to store their paycheck at the bank, and to let that institution make money on it until bills come due.

What if you could be your OWN banker, and use that power to pay off debt at a rapid rate while being in control of your own money?

Brent Kesler, founder of The Money Multiplier, used this centuries-old concept to pay off $984,711 of third-party debt in 39 months-without having to work any harder, change his cash flow, or take any additional risks.

The Money Multiplier is strictly educational. You determine whether you want to act with the information we provide, and get all the money back for all products and services you will ever buy for you and your family, for the rest of your life.

Are You Really Getting “Passive” Income?
Tom Berry, Investor Loan Source

Lots of real estate folks talk about their “passive” income, when what they really have is SEMI-passive income. There are pros and cons to each, and depending on your circumstances, one is probably better for you. Tom Berry is a seasoned real estate investor and hard money lender who wants to make sure you’re choosing right, and that you really understand which strategies are truly passive. After entering the 2007 real estate crash with a negative net equity of $65,000, he learned a lot of lessons and built a real estate business with $5 million in assets in just four years; now he wants to put you on that same path.

How to Talk to Sellers About Financing Deals for You
Chad Harris, Dayton, OH

Understanding HOW to do subject to, contract for deed, and other creative deals doesn’t help you if you can’t get sellers to say “Yes” to them. Chad Harris has done exactly that, over and over, and he’ll share why more sellers SHOULD accept creative offers, the questions to ask to discover if a creative offer is right for a seller, ‘trial closes’ you can use to introduce the topic, and how to overcome their most common objections.

Get (Actually) Rich Quick(er): The BRRRR Method for Buying Rentals
Andrew Syrios, Kansas City, KS

You’ve heard of BRRRR, right? It’s a new-ish name for the tried-and-true concept of buying more rentals in a shorter timeframe than most investors are able to by Buying and Rehabbing without your own cash (using private or hard money) then Renting, Refinancing with a conventional loan to ‘take out’ the more-expensive private loan, and then Repeating the whole process all over again. Andrew Syrios is a 2nd-generation real estate investor who’s done this over 300 times, and who will share his no-B.S. strategy from start to finish.

Do Diligence: How to Do All the Steps to Making the Right Offer
Stuart Gethner, AZ

It doesn’t matter what your exit strategy is: the right (money-making) deal starts with making the right offer. And you can’t do that until you know things about the property, like what it’s worth, and what it will cost to repair it, and whether the owner bothered to pull permits for that awesome addition, and whether the IRS has a million dollar lien against it. The right due diligence can save you a lot wasted time, and from making a big buying mistake, so if you’re not sure you’re doing it right, listen in to this presentation.

Selling Turnkey Rentals: the Other “Fix and Flip” Strategy
Jeff Rickerman, Youngstown, OH

When you think about ‘flipping houses’, you probably think about expensive properties, in expensive neighborhoods, that homeowners will ultimately buy. But there’s a whole other class of qualified, full-price-paying, well-funded, often cash-heavy buyers for rehabs out there, and that’s housing providers who want turnkey rentals. Jeff Rickerman has been making money providing these to a hungry market since 2013; he’ll walk you through choosing the right properties, getting the right financing, doing the right repairs, putting the right renters in place, and finding the buyers who will pay full price for the resulting product.

How You Can (and Why You Should) Rent “Section 8”
Patti Robertson, Hampton Roads VA

If guaranteed rents are looking more and more attractive in this age of eviction bans, it’s time to think about (or re-think) renting to Housing Choice Voucher Holders (Section 8 renters). Patti Robertson is a housing provider with years of experience in this program, and will share why HAP renters aren’t what you think they are, how you can pass those required inspections, how to deal with common problems that crop up, and how you, too, can have a good, profitable experience.

What You Don’t Know About the “Numbers” of Short-Term Rentals
Elizabeth Maora Sickles, Indianapolis, IN

Yes, short-term rentals (aka AirBnB) can generate double, or more, the gross income of traditional rentals. But that’s far from the whole story, and before you decide to buy one, or convert your existing rental to one, you better hear that story. If you want to know the REAL numbers—from furnishing and management, to the extra maintenance and monthly costs—that  SHOULD drive your purchasing or conversion decisions, make sure you’re in on this discussion with an experienced short-term rental provider and manager.

How to Get All the Leads You Want from Facebook
Jerome Lewis, Philadephia, PA

The most-used social network in the world can also be a huge source of otherwise-unknown seller leads for you—IF you know the tricks of targeting, ad writing, and getting the maximum number of qualified responses for the minimum cost per lead. Jerome Lewis is a real estate investor and agent who’s ALSO an internet marketing consultant, and he’ll walk you through the actual process of creating Facebook campaigns AND show you the results from his most recent one.

Maximizing the Opportunity of Self-Directed IRAs and the Solo QRP
Jason Debono, NuView IRA

Financially successful people tend to have two major things in common: one being that most of them invest in real estate, and two, most of them seek out tax-advantaged investing opportunities/vehicles to keep more of what they earn. Whether you are a new or seasoned investor, understanding how to invest in real estate (and related investments) TAX-FREE through a self-directed IRA or Solo QRP is a critical step in building true wealth. This session will provide investors of all skill levels a practical understanding of how to evaluate the different tax-advantaged self-directed IRA and Solo QRP plans available, as well as the investment opportunities and regulations they provide.

How to Find and Hire the Right Contractors
Derek Christian, Cincinnati, OH

If you haven’t had the experience of calling 10 contractors to get bids, only to have 8 tell you that they’re booked for the next 6 months and the other two not show up, or agreeing to a 6-week timeframe for completion of a job, only to have it drag on for 9 months, or giving a contractor money up front only to have him disappear from your life forever, you’re either very educated or very new. Retailer, housing provider, and general contractor Derek Christian will provide you with valuable insight, garnered from years of experience hiring contractors, about why these things happen (no, all contractors aren’t rip-off artists), what you’ll need to do to find the good ones (that you can still afford), and how to find out whether you’ve run across a bad actor BEFORE you sign that contract.

How to Hire Your First Virtual Assistant
Anita Johnson, Cincinnati, OH

If you have more to-do list than you have hours in a day, the answer isn’t to do fewer deals, or to work 20 hours a day—it’s to get help. Virtual assistants (VAs) are often your first answer: they’re skilled in any area you can think of, relatively inexpensive, and don’t need space, or a desk, or office equipment in your house to do their jobs. Anita Johnson is a wholesaler, and housing provider, with a full-time corporate job, who uses VAs for everything from interviewing sellers, to making outbound calls; she won’t just share WHAT they can do, but also walk you through the process of hiring and managing one.

Build More Wealth and Pay Less Tax with 1031 Exchanges
Scott Ellsworth, CPA Cincinnati, OH

1031 Exchanges are WAY more flexible than you probably realize. Did you know that you can buy the property you want BEFORE you sell the one you don’t? Or that you can use exchange proceeds for repairs, instead of purchasing properties? Scott, an experienced investor and CPA, will explain the basic rules of exchanging, plus share some of the more ‘exotic’ exchanges, that will save you tens of thousands in capital gains and depreciation recapture, leaving you more cash to re-invest in better (or more) properties.

How to Use Joint Ventures to Get the Money You Need
Jeff Lerman, Esq. San Rafael, CA

When you’re raising money to buy properties—whether they’re houses or apartments—you’ve got a lot of choices in the ‘structure’. From syndications (expensive and complex) to private mortgages (good for some deals, but not when you need a large or long-term investment), they all work, but a (cheaper, easier, less legally-complex, longer-term) option you may not have considered is Joint Venture Partners. Jeff is both an investor, and an attorney who’s helped others set up these agreements,  and joins us to share the benefits and potential gotchas (like choosing the wrong partner and using bad documents).

You’re Using Lease/Options Wrong
Bill Cook, Adairsville, GA

If you think of lease/options ONLY as a way of ‘selling’ houses, or ONLY as way to make some quick cash ‘flipping’ them, then you’re missing out on some of their biggest benefits. Knowing how to buy with long-term lease/options is one of the most powerful creative finance strategies you can know; it lets the seller AVOID taxes (not just spread them out) for a decade or more, and gets you long-term control of a property, cash flow, and, over time, huge equity to tap or keep for wealth. Learn the REAL strengths of this low money down, no qualifying buying strategy.

The Anatomy of a Note Deal
Bill Griesmer, Columbus, OH

Notes—whether you flip them or keep them—can be more profitable than properties, and without the rehab and management hassles that owning real estate often bring. In this workshop, Bill Griesmer will help you understand how a note deal comes together from finding it to researching it to pricing it to making the offer to closing it to what happens next.

How to Get More for Your Wholesale Deals
Marlena Dates, New Smyrna Beach, FL

When it comes to selling your wholesale deals, who’s in control: your buyers, or you? What if you could get MORE cash from every wholesale deal with a systematized selling process, intentionally creating competition among buyers, and providing them with everything the need to decide to pay you more than you thought you could get? Marlena Dates does that, and she’ll share exactly how.

The Banquet Feast
Friday, November 13th, 7:30pm – 9:30pm
(Eastern Time Zone)

What You Need to Do to Reach the Pinnacle

Over the 3+ decade uninterrupted history of the OREIA National Real Estate Summit, we’ve seen hundreds of regular attendees make the journey from starter (“I know nothing about real estate, I’ve never done a deal, I just know I want the freedom I think it can provide me”) to ender (“I have enough passive income to live well for the rest of my life, do what I want to do, and never worry about money again”).

They took lots of paths to this enviable position, and they have lots of insight into how you can get there despite the fact that many of your colleagues won’t.

So now, for the first time, we’ve brought together a panel of experienced, real-life enders from around the U.S. to share:

  • Why it turned out that WHO they knew was more important than WHAT they knew, and how they started making those valuable connections early on
  • What they had to give up in the short term to make sure that they were financially and personally free in the long term
  • The paths they took to get to ender status (most had multiple streams of income when they started), and what they wish they’d done differently
  • How they got through the hard (scary, broke, uncertain, down-market) times and kept persisting
  • Their best advice for how YOU can become an ender as quickly as possible
