Hello Everyone, IMPORTANT: Be sure to READ everything I have to say here carefully: WE ARE HAVING TWO MEETINGS! (PLEASE Make Note of which Meeting is which night!) For Octobers Meeting: I have made arrangements with my (multi-millionaire) mentor Brad, to come from Dallas to the San Francisco Bay Area to speak to us on both Tuesday, 10/29/2013, in Fremont, And Wednesday, 10/30/2013, in San Francisco! (Meetings are posted for 6:30pm to allow for networking & travel time, Meeting/Speaker starts promptly at 7pm, and ends at 9pm) More about him, and his BIO, in the rest of this email. Thank you very much to Les Ong, for helping us get the room in San Francisco, and Thank you very much to Nav, for our Meeting room in Fremont. WATCH FOR MORE UPDATES: / Investing is a business, which requires a commitment to networking and education. As I have stated, our group is about networking and education. If a person is going to invest in apartments, even as a "passive investor" there are certain requirements in order to be able to invest. You must be educated. You must know the meanings of certain terms. Those of us with more experience, may at some time be looking for investors for our deals. However, just having money to invest, even $100,000 to $500,000 does not automatically qualify you to invest in apartments, you have to qualify as either an accredited or sophisticated investor, and you must have a "Pre-existing relationship" with the "deal sponsor/ lead investor"// These details are VERY Important, since most investments in apartments are a "security" regulated by the SEC, Securities and Exchange Commission. Any violation of these laws have serious consequences. You can even go to prison, and some people have. We will be talking about this at future meetings, and plan to start recording meetings. (There may be a membership fee to view these recordings, since it costs money to do this) We will be having an SEC attorney come speak to us on this topic, once we consistently have a large enough group, With 50 or more members attending our meetings. Here is your part: help make that happen! Make it a priority to attend our next Meetup, and be sure to bring guests! We can have better and better meetings each month, Only through YOUR participation and contribution. If YOU are serious about becoming Financially Independent, as many of our members / speakers have, it requires a commitment on your part. A commitment of BOTH time and money. This is a business, and it is possible to completely replace your income from your job, and earn double digit returns, and double your investment in 2-5 years, we have members who have done it! However, you are only going to meet these members, and learn about the steps of their success, when you attend our monthly meetings. Please make a decision to do so now. RSVP for our next event.// We have had some fantastic presentations the last two months! Thanks to our members, Nav, about his recent purchase of 7 units in Madeira, CA, and Jean-Marc, about his 172 units in Longview, Texas. While both of these case studies have been excellent, they are not enough training to have someone become a "Sophisticated Investor". If you currently invest in houses, you may not even be aware of how much better apartments are, and can be, due to "economies of scale". You learn more about this at our meetings. There are several options: you are an "Independent Investor" like Nav, whole did the entire investment on his own, not needing any outside investment. Very few people qualify for this, or you have to buy a much smaller complex and self-manage, which requires your time. Most larger apartment complexes, 50 units or more, which can afford professional management, require a large investment and / or a significant income / net worth on the part of the "Lead Investor" who is qualifying for the loan. I have met investors, who had no prior experience, and who invested in apartments, and replaced their income from their job in 2-5 years, and became a millionaire, with passive income, and lots of time, money, and freedom. The problem with houses, is you tend to still have a job, managing your tenants. // For Octobers Meeting: I have made arrangements with my (multi-millionaire) mentor to come to the San Francisco Bay Area to speak to us on both Tuesday, 10/29/2013, And Wednesday, 10/30/2013. More about him, and his BIO, in the rest of this email. There are many opportunities to get involved in investing in Apartments, Either as an Active/ Lead Investor (There are many requirements to qualify for a responsibility such as this. More details to come) Or as a Passive Investor, where your money works instead of you. (The most important thing to learn as a passive investor, is how to select the right lead investor. It is NOT just the property, the financing, the property management. All of these are important, and we will be discussing each of these items in depth) The Mentor I have selected, could also become your mentor. After extensive research with many of the National Guru's, Lindahl, Scheel, and others. (Both of whom I have taken training with) Most of the time I was very disappointed with the lack of detail and content. Most of them seemed more interested in selling me the next program, (upselling) instead of helping me learn how to buy apartments. The man I am working with bought his first 32 unit complex in Houston, about ten years ago. Within 3 years, having no prior experience, he had made over one million dollars, and rolled those profits into larger units in Dallas. He has been mentoring many Dallas investors to successfully do their first deal. I have met these investors, and seen their properties, and he is the real deal. He now owns / Controls over 1,000 units in the Texas Market, and he is a qualified expert. He offers very affordable group mentoring, as well as one-on-one mentoring. He is my top choice over everyone who I have studied with. Please RSVP if you are serious about investing in apartments. This training is an absolute must, and I expect that I will require all of my passive investors in my deals to have his training. And several have already flown to Dallas, to attend his event, and receive $1,000 worth of weekend training, 16 hours of training for FREE as my guest. There are limited spaces available on the bus, so I must have your commitment in advance, with a deposit check for $497 for two people, which is never deposited, and you get back Sunday night. Thank you, Mark, Group Organizer/ (A few words from my Apartment Buying Mentor) I began investing in Apartments in 2003 and have been a Full-Time Multi-Family Professional since 2005. I am currently a Principal in over 1,100 units, 567 in the DFW Area. In 2012 I was awarded the National Apartment Association's Independent Owner of the Year. My passion is helping others make profitable Multi-Family Investments and I was the Lead Multi-Family Mentor and Broker at Lifestyles Unlimited DFW from[masked] where I lead their Multi-Family Education, Mentoring and Networking Programs. I am pursuing my CCIM Designation, am a Member of the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas, Apartment Association of Tarrant County, and a Licensed Real Estate Broker in TX. I know many of the Brokers and Multi-Family Service Providers (Lenders, Mgmt Companies, Attorneys, Contractors, etc.) in town. I pretty much eat, drink and breathe Multi-Family! /// I have known Stewart Hsu (former Organizer of this San Francisco Meetup Group, who moved to Dallas, and now controls over 3,000 units) for several years and have been a Member of his Group since 2010. My vision is to Focus on Education (for both New and Experienced Investors) and Networking --Education and Networking have enabled me to Retire from my Corporate Job after only 3 years of Multi-Family Investing, and subsequently I have raised millions of dollars for my Acquisitions, provided Double Digit Returns to my Investors, and Security and Freedom for my family, and have helped many others do the same. In fact, virtually Anyone can achieve the same result and this Group will be a Resource for those who want to achieve that.// (video to be added) Here is why you want to be at my event ---quite simply I reveal the processes & mechanisms that have enabled me and many others who have embraced my Training and Mentoring to consistently achieve Double Digit returns and increased levels of Income, Freedom and Security for our families and those that we love. Many are able to Retire in Just 3-8 Years or Less after beginning to invest in Apartments. Specifically I reveal: - The 3 Step Wealth Formula - How to Locate, Evaluate, Negotiate, Contract, Close, Operate, and Exit Multi-Family Properties. - MF Financing - MF Business Planning - Group Purchases & Raising Money - Building Your Team - Using Your IRA and 401(k) - Your Quick Start Guide - Steps to your First Deal. - and MUCH MORE - like "Case Studies" from students just like you, who as a Result of my Training and Mentoring was able to successfully purchase a MF Property after starting with no MF Experience. - Oh and did I mention there will be a Field Trip on Sunday? Yes that's right during this VIP Event we will go in the Field and visit 2 properties - one owned by my Me and my Group of Investors, and the other owned by one of my Students. You will get "behind-the-scenes" access to properties so you can see exactly what it is like to own or invest in a MF Deal. Buses will be rented all at my expense to make this experience the best weekend event you EVER attend! You have never attended an event like this ...even if you attended in March my intent is to make this one EVEN BETTER! You will get "classroom" and "hands-on Field" training at this event. This is not a sell-athon...it is a 2-day training event. During these 2 days you will be personally mentored by me - the 2012 NAA Independent Owner of the Year who Retired not once but twice in the past 7 years! Brad, My Apartment Buying Mentor from Dallas, Texas
