Flippers Alert: Signs of a Changing Market - How to Adapt with Mary Morrongiello

Mary Morrongiello and  Ex-husband Michael have been flipping homes for over 30 years. They have successfully completed more than 100 houses and have weathered market crashes 3 times in Florida and California. She will be sharing the mistakes she's made (as recently as three months ago), what lessons have been learned and how her come back has been made possible .

Mary is a roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-things-done kind of a person and we are honored to have her with us again. Mary has fixed and flipped houses since 1987 beginning in Tampa Bay and moving on to the California wine country in 1998. In 2007 Mary lost everything when she got stuck as the market collapsed in a multi-million dollar rehab and has had to start over. Mary has gone from a position of having $419 to her name in August 2009 to being in a final group of three rehab teams nationwide to be filmed for an A & E Channel pilot. Unfortunately, they decided to go with a team in Vegas, so it was back to doing what she loves doing most " Making ugly houses beautiful again...and getting paid to do it!.

This is the one meeting to make sure you attend this year as Mary is among the most favored speakers in the Bay Area due to her no nonsense, street smart , unfiltered truths about life in the high stakes world of California flipping.


Agenda for this meeting:

1. Introductions and open mic time (please bring your flyers, cards or other promotional materials. Please limit your mic time to 60 seconds or less. If you would need more time, please contact the promoters to schedule your presentation.)

2. Topic 1 - Case Study. Designed to give beginning and prospective Rehabbers information on how to succeed in finding, analyzing, fixing and selling Bay Area houses.

3. Guest Speaker - see above

4. Networking

My partner Dean and I buy UGLY houses for pennies on the dollar, remodel them beautifully and sell them for top dollar. We call ourselves “The UGLY House Magicians” and I’m sure you would agree that it does take a little magic (and a lot of hard work) to locate these bargains and turn them around in such a short time. We will explain more about what we do and why trust deed lending makes good sense in today’s market.

Seating is limited so reserve your spot right away.

Where: Wally Pond Community Center 41885 Blacow Rd Fremont

When: Every 2nd Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. (Please arrive early at 6:45 PM to allow sign in and networking)

Thank you,

Joe Metz

    Loved the guest speaker--she kept it real, to the point, relevant, and most if all FUN and lighthearted. Thank you for all of the valuable information. It really takes a special group of people to organize these meetups to help other aspiring Fortune Builder investors like myself gain not only knowledge but momentum and inspiration.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
