    Moderated by Dave Metsker & Dick Uffelman

    Learn how to "dig them up", using the free lists available, and the secret "code word" that they are really dead, and not just dying.  As a bonus, you will also learn how to identify properties owned by people who may be about to die in the next few days, weeks, or months. As a general rule, dead people usually do not make their mortgage payments on time, and this is a big clue to look for.

    So, if you want some "deadly serious" training on how to turn "dead leads" into money in your pocket, join your friends on Tuesday, July 23 at Lake Oswego Round Table Pizza.  Come early and network.  As a bonus, all those who are on time at 6:30 PM will take home a special gift.

    Join us at our monthly roundtable in Portland for networking, deal sharing, and deal analysis/discussion. This is a general roundtable discussion on various topics including how to finance your next real estate investment with creative, non-traditional financing options, and foreclosures.

    What you will learn at this event:  

    * How wholesaling is actually the key to ANY exit strategy

    (Don't get hung-up on your exit strategy, all deals -- rehab, BRRR, commercial, etc -- all have the key core elements in common, and that's what wholesaling sharpens your skills on. It gets you ready and set for anything.)

    * Why wholesaling works, and works quickly.

    (In 60 days you can be through your first deal)

    * The one element of marketing that makes it a mystery to most people.

    (Get this right and watch how things change for you)

    * How to structure and pace your negotiations to maximize results.

    (Even if you hate the thought of negotiating, this method will fit you like a glove)

    * How to build your real estate investing business even if you have no time available to work on it.

    (Forget wishing there were more hours in a day, and do this instead)

    * How to understand the legal contracts side of the business.

    (Once you get this, you'll be able to move ahead confidently and safely)

    * And much more!

    At this event you will learn how to find deals, how to negotiate deals like a pro (even if the thought of negotiating scares you), and how the various exit strategies fit in to your real estate investing business and will fund your lifestyle goals.

    ABOUT TOM ZEEB

    A funny thing happens when you nearly drown -- you start to think about what you really want to do with your life.  You lose patience with the obstacles holding you back.  Like the 9-to-5 grind, a whopping 2 weeks' vacation per year, and not quite enough money to pay the bills each month, much less for any of the extras that make life real special.

    It was on the Ganges River in India.  I was on a raft with some friends, crashing through Class 5 rapids when I suddenly found myself overboard and underwater.

    A near death experience does wonders for your life. When I finally surfaced and stopped choking, I realized my friends had been laughing.  For them, this had been a spectacle.  For me, it was a new beginning.

    I knew the time had come to stop dreaming and finally become the entrepreneur I always wanted to be.  In the past, it seemed that the time wasn’t right.  On that day I realized it would never be exactly right. It was up to me to make it so.  

    And that's just what I did!

    I ran out, quit my job, and fell flat on my face a few months later. Teetering on the edge of financial ruin, once again my friends were laughing. But this time they tried to hide it behind a facade of polite concern. But I knew they were thinking.  “We knew he’d never make it. He should have kept his good job while he had it.”

    But that near-death experience had changed me.  And I kept at it.

    After flipping my first property, I paid some bills and went on a vacation to Italy.   My business and lifestyle took off and I’ve never looked back. Now my old friends aren’t laughing anymore.

    Yes, one deal can change it all!

    Since then I’ve been featured by CNBC, Kiplinger's Magazine, The Washington Post, The Washington Examiner, Financial Lifeline Radio, and the National Real Estate Investors Association's Magazine, among others.

    Success brings its own breed of problems. You want to be able to keep your business running without having it interfere with your vacations and time with family. For fun, I’m racing a friend to see who can be the first to visit 100 different countries! I am currently at 86.

    The answer was in modern technology. I figured out how to structure my business so that I can operate remotely from anywhere in the world and no one even knows I’m gone.  

    Sure enough, people started asking me “How do you do it?”  The truth is there have been ups and downs, I’ve made mistakes, and have had my share of frustrations and setbacks, as well as my share of growth and dizzying success.

    A teacher at heart, I’ve now helped hundreds of average people to replace their income, quit their jobs, and turn full time to real estate investing. It may sound funny, but I think of this as saving lives -- saving them from debt, isolation from family, income & lifestyle limitations, and sheer boredom!

    All this led me to where I am now: Active investor, President of Traction Real Estate Investors Association (www.TractionREIA.com) and Founder of Traction Real Estate Mentors (www.TractionRealEstateMentors.com). And I sit on the Board of the National Real Estate Investors Association.

    I’m now asked to speak across the US and overseas at seminars, workshops and bootcamps.  I teach my techniques for wholesaling and business building through my presentations "How to make money without money in real estate" and "The Rapid Cash Generator MasterClass: How to go from spinning your wheels to profitable deals!"  And I love that people find my talks to be entertaining, informative, and above all - practical.

    Some may wonder, so I’ll tell you.  I graduated from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom. However, everything financially worthwhile I learned afterwards.

    If you are looking to quit your job and build your own mini real estate empire, or just to build a separate income stream to support your family and enhance your lifestyle, you will want to mark your calendar and be sure to be at my presentation!

    Join us at our monthly roundtable in Salem! This is the meeting where you can network, ask for referrals, discuss and analyze deals and contracts, learn about the current market, or ask for help. We have great interaction at these meetings with real people talking about real deals.

    Meetings are usually held the 2nd Thursday of every month. Topics vary each month from general, deal-making discussions - to presentations on various topics - to field trips. Our meeting agenda generally includes:

    • Networking 
    • Introductions 
    • Feature Topic or Presentation (approx. 1 hour) 
    • Q&A or General Discussion 
    • Networking

    In our meeting, we will do informal round table introductions then let people talk about whatever deals they are working on or have recently finished. Sometimes we do deal analysis on those deals. We talk about problems that came up and what investors did to work through those problems. Everyone is welcome to ask for referrals, talk about deals they're looking for or have, or bring a problem to the group and ask for feedback.

    Attendees are finding great networking opportunities, and regular attendees are making deals with each other. Professionals and new to experienced investors are all welcome and encouraged to come and participate in the discussion. Bring your questions and business cards. We hope to see you there!
