April: Our Next Monthly Meeting

Pete Fortunato says, "In chaos there is opportunity" . Will you be ready? Being prepared is the key.

Three local experienced UCREIA investors will join Vena Jones-Cox to talk about the challenges and opportunities of the coming market. Vena, from Cincinnati, OH, is the nationally renown, highly successful wholesaler/marketing guru, teacher, coach and one with her finger on the pulse of investing. Vena is one of our favorite and most respected speakers, who has been here numerous times to share her knowledge. We are thrilled to welcome her back.

Our local panelists are honored to be on stage with Vena. They include Chad Carson, Joe Gibson, Robert Dayton, and Gregg Branham. They bring combined experience in landlording, wholesaling, getting seller financing, rehabbing, retail flips, lease/options, negotiating, property management, and private lending. This features the no-holds-barred, no-b.s. advice of a handful of guys who’ve been to this rodeo before and survived to tell the tales. If you heard Vena and the Cincinnati investors' webinar, just wait for our Local investors to share their experiences and plans to be prepared for upcoming markets.

"Fortunes are made in chaos"—and we're here to help you figure out what to do when you can't collect rents, and when your rehab won't sell, and, importantly, how to get ready for what's likely to be an amazing market with record low interest rates and a serious easing of inventory, less competition . Everyone--members and guests, new and experienced investors--is welcome to our first ever online main meeting;

She has spent as much as $2,100,000 in labor and materials in one year to renovate properties with more than 22 contractors working full time to take the run down homes she bought and turn them into little castles at lightening speed.

Robyn will be sharing her strategies on: 1) How to find the profitable homes that need renovated, 2) How to find and control the contractors to get the job done and 3) Selling houses quickly for huge chunks of cash.

Robyn has taught thousands of students throughout the United States how to become financially independent. She has shared the stage with Donald Trump, Dr Phil, Mark Victor Hansen, Ron LeGrand, Marshall Sylver & many more legends.

Robyn uses her success in the real estate business to help those less fortunate. The most critical construction project that Robyn completed was an orphanage in one of the poorest countries in the world for 165 children.

Robyn presents the most up to date strategies for buying low and selling high to ensure large profits and that is why she is one of the most high demand speakers in the nation.
