Ramon TookesAs the market continues to get hotter and hotter, more investors are jumping in to take advantage of the trend. Some will be successful investors and others will not. That’s just the reality of the business. Many are not successful because they don’t have the proper resources. Many are not successful because they don’t have the proper training or guidance. Many are not successful because they don’t have the right plan and/or exit strategy.

What’s your plan and/or exit strategy for your real estate investment business? Is it buying and holding? Is it wholesaling? Is it fixing and flipping? All three are very good strategies when they’re used properly, but there is a “myth” that wholesaling is the best way to start investing… but this month’s speaker, Ramon Tookes, strongly disagrees!

Watch Video!

Please RSVP and join us at the Chattanooga REIA Main Monthly Event on Thursday, June 7th starting from 6:30PM to 9:00PM at Hilton Garden Inn Hamilton Place located at 2343 Shallowford Village Dr, Chattanooga, TN, and Ramon will show you why “Fixing and Flipping” is much better than wholesaling. If you don’t believe it, come out and see Ramon and he will show you why he strongly believes this is true and why you should too.

Join us and you will learn…

Here is your chance to learn the difference between Fixing & Flipping VS Wholesaling. If you have been feeling stuck or unsure of where to take your real estate investing ventures, RSVP NOW, JOIN US, and when you walk away, you will feel educated and even inspired to help more people solve their real estate problems!

Ramon Tookes is a real estate investor, coach, author, wealth builder, public speaker, radio celebrity and developer with 20+ years of experience in the industry. Ramon currently oversees the daily operations of The Tookes Group, a firm that he founded in 2005, specializing in real estate investment consulting.

NO Charge For ALL Attendees at this time.

Joey EnglishThe crux of any real estate transaction is what is called the purchase and sale agreement. What goes into this agreement? Can you make one up on the spot or do you have to use a state approved pre-made document? How about can the agreement be cancelled at any time? If you don't know all the answers to these questions and more concerning the purchase and sale agreement, then you should RSVP and join us at BIG Chattanooga this Thursday, May 17th at 5:30PM at Wally's in East Ridge located at 6571 Ringgold Rd.

Beginning Investor GroupThis month at BIG, Joey English, will be teaching new investors how to navigate the purchase and sale agreement like a pro, so this is a BIG Event you don’t want to miss!

Joey English began investing full time in 2010 along with his wife Ashley. They founded Focus Property Solutions LLC based in Calhoun, Georgia. They have had numerous real estate investing successes and follow the teachings of Jack Miller, Pete Fortunato, Bill Cook and Dyches Boddiford with a number of other investor influences. Joey writes a weekly column named, "Cashflow With Joe" and this column appears in several publications throughout Georgia.

RSVP and join us at the Beginning Investors Group on Thursday, May 17th at 5:30PM at Wally's Restaurant located at 6521 Ringgold Rd in East Ridge, TN.

Have you been a “real estate investor” for several months or even years without doing your first deal? What is holding you back? Fear? Lack of money? Credit Problems? Lack of Focus? Are you afraid you will screw it all up?

Why make such a big deal about your first deal? Well, it’s the hardest deal you will do, but once you get through it, your belief in yourself and real estate investing will rise dramatically. You will be on your way to becoming a true real estate investor.

BIG will have experienced local and regional investors speaking and leading interactive exercises on relevant topics on a beginners level. We also have mentors attending that can take you by the hand and can walk you through that first deal. So please join us on the 3rd Thursday of every month. Arrive around 5:30PM so you can get some delicious food at Wally's in East Ridge.
