Speed Networking - Find Money, Deals and Vendors

  • Jun 11, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's been said and we firmly believe that your net worth is equal to your network. In response to your requests for more networking opportunities, we will be facilitating a "speed networking" event at this month's meeting. You will likely be meeting around 50 people at this event, so bring your business cards and a pen and be prepared to share your needs with others. 

For example if you have money for deals, be prepared to ask others who they may know that are looking for money and the kind of returns you are looking for. If you're looking for deals, be prepared to list the areas you will buy in and your ideal purchase price. If you're a contractor or other vendor, let your new acquaintance know what kind of jobs you're looking for.

Don't forget to bring a pen! As you are meeting new people, it's a good idea to make brief notes on the backs of their business cards so you can follow up later. 

It is our goal that you will meet everyone at the event so bring lots of cards. Each person will have 1 minute to share so have your script well prepared. Here's what I'd say in the time allowed:

"Hi, I'm Joe Metz and my partner Dean Higa and me are full-time developers in the Bay Area and Sacramento. I'm always looking for 4 things: 1. Money for our deals, 2. Houses that we can buy at a discount 3. Wholesale buyers and 4. Retail buyers. Would you possibly know someone who would be interested in discussing this further?

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

3. Speed 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: Embassy Suites Santa Clara - Delegate Room

When: Every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m.

Thank you,

Joe Metz
