Atlanta REIA is excited to announce that Larry Harbolt ( will be the special guest speaker at our Main Monthly Meeting on Monday, January 4th at 5PM. The meeting will take place at Atlanta Unity ( located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA ( Larry will be sharing his wealth of knowledge with us about structuring deals in ways that avoid using banks for financing at all costs.

Due to the much stricter qualifications banks are requiring their borrowers to adhere to today, it has become nearly impossible for many investors to get any type of institutional financing, especially those who have less than stellar credit and small cash reserves. This problem has, and will continue to eliminate a lot of investors from the business, especially those in the early years of their investing career.

How would you like to learn how to structure deals so that you will never need to beg for a loan from any lender ever again? Larry is going to share with you multiple ways to structure and finance the deals you do regardless of your financial situation. You can then use these strategies every day for the rest of your life, no matter how your personal situation may or may not change. By using these techniques, you can quickly become financially free by buying houses and doing deals over and over without ever having to take any money out of your own pocket or getting any type of a loan.

"I believe, as I have for many years, that the secret to every real estate investor's success will be to use some sort of creative techniques and deal structures. Doing this is essential in today's real estate market, even if you could qualify for an institutional loan. Why would you want to qualify for a loan when you don't need to?" - Larry Harbolt

Once you learn how to buy houses without needing to get a loan at a bank you will always be able to do more deals and make more money in any real estate market! Larry will teach you how to…

- Buy real estate profitably in any market or economic cycle.

- Understand how to buy real estate when you have No Money and Not so Good Credit.

- Create the terms that will make you cash today regardless of the current real estate environment.

- Buy millions of dollars of real estate and never have one debt shown on your credit report or be personally liable for a penny owed.

- Build multiple income streams, like the banks do, and acquire free assets without investing a dime out of your pocket.

- Learn how to change the length of the loan months or years after the closing and make the seller ecstatic to do so, you both win.

- Create huge discounts on your seller carry back financing with no negotiating needed when you plan to pay the sellers off. If you know how to do this up front, you can avoid having to deal with a flaky seller later.

- Buy and Sell a property for the same price and still make a profit.

- And much, much more!

Come out and see how easy it can be to get started doubling or tripling your current income and buy more houses using little to none of your own money. All this is happening at the Atlanta REIA main meeting on Monday, January 4th at 5PM at Atlanta Unity ( located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA (

As always, Atlanta REIA Members can attend the event at no charge and Non-Members can Register Online for $20 ( or pay $25.00 at the door. Be sure to bring your business cards and flyers and join us for an evening of real estate deals, vendors, networking, education and fun! See you there!

And then, Larry will be back on Saturday, January 9th where he will spend an entire day teaching you about how to structure your deals so you can avoid banks and still get paid! Reserve your seat today! (
