Vicky SchettiniMy name is Vicky Schettini. I am a single mom and in 2014 I was suffering from the empty nest syndrome. Living from paycheck to paycheck with only $25.00 to spare, I decided to build my Legacy and Wealth. I was ready to start investing in buy and hold properties. Desperately wanting and needing the security of passive income, I decided to move across country from California to Jackson, MS to be closer to my only daughter.

Things didn't go as planned and I ended up homeless in a new town where I didn't know a single person. I was on a mission to build my wealth and decided to do whatever it takes to succeed. I quickly started networking with anyone and everyone possible. I was laughed at and hung up on many times but failure was not an option, so I pushed on.

I finally found an investor who was willing to sell me one of his houses with owner financing. I had to be very creative in ways to come up with the down payment since I was broke. I was finally able to move into my new home and I only had $500 to my name. I taught myself how to rehab the property and put back on the market and had it rented within 4 hours! I have been creative in acquiring more properties and duplicating what I had done ever since.

In just short 4 years, I have exceeded my own goals. I own over 100 single family properties, 4 apartment complexes plus I am still to this day an active investor with a full team helping me. My portfolio continues to grow monthly. In the beginning, I didn’t have any money or credit, but that didn't stop me from achieving my goals and dreams.

Today, my mission now is to help 1 million people just like me reach financial independence. I want to teach you what I did and how you can duplicate my system of success.

On the BIG Online Webinar I will teach you...

If you have the drive to build your wealth, then I can easily teach you the rest. Please join me on the Beginning Investors Group Online Webinar on August 27th at 7PM ET to learn more! Register for the BIG Online Webinar Now!

The life of a real estate investor isn't anything like what the late night infomercials or the (so-called) reality-based investor TV shows portray. There are days that will really get you down. Adversity can and will slam into you like a fly waiting for the windshield on the freeway. What do you do if you find yourself in those swirling waters?

Jeff is a recovering attorney who spends his time as a real estate investor. Jeff graduated early and with honors from Michigan State College of Law where he was the graduating class speaker. He also holds a M.B.A.

At 30 years old, Jeff checked the last item off his personal bucket list by climbing Machu Picchu. He was on top of the world. As he stood looking down at the lost Incan city, he had been living the life of his dreams. He was well travelled, having previously visited the Pyramids in Egypt, climbed to the top of Mt Sinai, swam with sharks in Belize, and backpacked alone around Europe. He was married to the girl of his dreams. He had a beautiful house in the suburbs and a thriving law practice. Two weeks later, he was in the hospital dying. His business was in disarray, his wife was barely holding it together and he was on his way to bankruptcy.

Today, at 41 years old, just over a decade later, Jeff is back on top. He is a millionaire, with over 140 residential units in his personal portfolio. He also owns multiple commercial properties. He is still married and continues to travel extensively. He is also co-host of the Old Fashioned Real Estate Show where the hosts drink bourbon old fashioneds and talk about real estate.

Roger Joey English

Joey and his team at Focus Property Solutions have been working preforeclosures in Whitfield, Murray, Gordon and Bartow Counties in Georgia. What Joey has been noticing more and more each month, that the inventory has been getting smaller and smaller. What does this mean? For now, more people are staying in their properties. Foreclosures are on a downswing. When the pickings become slim, you really need to focus on being a different kind of problem solver.

Now, more than ever, you are going to need to get face to face with potential sellers

Perhaps this sends a shiver down your spine. Why? Is it because you have no idea what to say? How to act? Perhaps you are afraid of saying the wrong thing and blowing your chance to obtain a property? FEAR NOT! Joey is going to share with you, what he does everytime he goes and meets with a seller on Thursday, June 6th, 2019 at 6:30 PM at Hilton Garden Inn, 2343 Shallowford Village Dr, Chattanooga, TN.

Joey will share with you:

Come at 5:30 and join Joey in the hotel restaurant for dinner. He will answer your questions, and he will hang around after the event to answer more of your questions. You will enjoy Joey. He has a servants heart, which is how he runs his business, and he truly wants to help. Also, check out Joey's articles, Cashflowwithjoe on our Chattanooga REIA Facebook Group, published every Monday.

Before our featured presentation, there are numorous opportunities to network with other investors as well as businesses that are geared toward real estate investors. Bring your flyers, business cards, posters. We do have an overhead projector that we can display your flyer to the entire room!

RSVP NOW and join us at the Chattanooga REIA Main Monthly Event from 6:30PM to 9:30PM on Thursday, June 6th at Hilton Garden Inn, Hamilton Place, 2343 Shallowford Village Pkwy, Chattanooga, TN.

Jim Hitt

Decade after decade, it seems like real estate keeps coming through. While any asset class can have a down year – or even several down years in a row, as the real estate investment community saw 10 years ago – real estate remains a proven long term wealth generator year after year, decade after decade, and generation after generation.
That’s what makes real estate an ideal investment for your retirement portfolio – and even in a special kind of IRA, called a self-directed IRA.

Self-directed IRAs allow individuals to use their IRA funds to purchase rental property, rehabs/flips, private mortgages, tax liens, and much, much more. By using a self-direct IRA, an investor can utilize this “new” bucket of cash to acquire assets that they can better control and thus drive better returns to their IRA. Best of all, the gains from these investments go back to the IRA without any tax implications.

Some people still believe the myth that IRAs don’t allow you to own real estate. This is because Wall Street companies that only sell stocks, bonds, funds, annuities and other kinds of paper assets. They aren’t compensated to sell real estate, and so they don’t pitch it, other than to sell real estate investment trusts, or REITs, which are still securities, rather than direct real estate assets themselves.

But it is very easy for you to own real estate assets of all kinds within a self-directed IRA – even direct ownership of rental properties.

On Thursday, April 4th, 2019 at 6:30 PM at Hilton Garden Inn, 2343 Shallowford Village Dr, Chattanooga, TN, we will have as our very special guest, Jim Hitt of American IRA. Jim Hitt maximizes profits by blending his two passions, self-directed IRA investing and real estate investing, to create great tax advantaged wealth. Jim is the CEO and Founder of American IRA, a national Self-Directed IRA services provider.

Here is a small sampling of what you will learn at our event:

Jim founded American IRA in 2004 and New Vision Trust Company in 2017. Jim has also been a licensed real estate broker in the state of California for over 40 years and an active real estate investor who has participated in over 6,000 real estate transactions with a current portfolio of over 50 rental properties. Jim has participated in the acquisition and development of single family homes, multifamily homes, commercial buildings, private offerings, mortgage lending, businesses, joint ventures, partnerships, limited liability companies and more. Throughout Jim’s investing career, he has employed various creative financing strategies including private lending, owner financing, hard money lending, and more. Jim has also taught investing techniques in North and South Carolina at UNC Asheville, AB Tech, and Lorman Educational Services.
