Designing Your Future From The Top Down with Christina Sutter

Link visible for attendees


"I believe that Investing in Real Estate offers one of the greatest opportunities for people seeking a way to live a better life."

Over the last 15 years, Christina found the greatest obstacle her clients faced was an overwhelming amount of information about investment real estate that didn't produce the results they needed.

She created the, Live A Rich Life - Real Estate Investment Workshop to simplify the process so people could get started at a pace they could handle, using a system that maximized results.


• She has purchased over 40 million dollars in real estate
• She has acquired over 350 doors in the last 30 years,
• In 2019 She co-authored, You Got This! on Real Estate Investing Success.
• She founded FIBI Pasadena with over 3,500 members as part of the For Investor By Investor (FIBI) Real Estate Network.
• She has spoken at top industry events including, the Think Realty Conference and Expo and the Intelligent Investors Real Estate Conference
• She hosts the Real Estate Breakthrough Podcast where she coaches investors and interviews the industry's top players.

"Living A Rich Life is not just about making money. It's about being able to choose how you are going to get up and start each day. When you feel like you are making a choice about your future, you are creating a life that will bring you richness beyond monetary gain - it will bring you a choice about how you spend your time, how you manage your priorities and how you choose to give back to the people and ideas that matter to you."

Christina serves as Chairman on the Board of Resources for Infant Educators, offers hours of free advice and real estate mentorship every week, and supports charities including, Veterans of America, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, National Police Association, and Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Andy Teasley The Wizard of Wobbly Boxes Also Master Mine Of Buying & Sell Notes

3649 Mission Inn Avenue


Andy Teasley is a self described “Serial Entrepreneur” he has built and run many small to medium sized businesses in the last 40 years. Along the way he has always had an interest in real estate investing as the best way to build long lasting wealth. Raised by a teacher and a CPA he has always felt the need to pay forward the learning he has received in his life. Being a “seminar junkie” he has had training by lots of instructors, he took his first “guru” real estate seminar in 1980 with Ione Young Grey and uses his experience at these seminars to hone his teaching skills and to try to divert new investors into a local REIA instead of the high priced guru system. He has invested in many areas of real estate as the cycles have changed and at the peak of the past buying frenzy had an interest in over 50 doors as a buy and hold investor. He lives near Palm Springs and is a California Native. Andy Teasley ~ Deals that make sense are very hard to find right now, prices are increasing and buyers are still being very selective and cautious. Andy Teasley will teach an under served section of real estate investing that still makes sense today. Based on his 20 years or investing experience and on his mentors much longer experience, this technique can consistently generate yields of over 35%.

Henning Van Deusen-Jensen Speaking About First And Best Deals

3649 Mission Inn Avenue


Born in Denmark 55 years ago, where I went to school and started an education as a Carpenter. That was cut short due to a serious injury (I cut my hand on an electric table saw) so I studied Construction Management. Fell in love with a German woman on a field trip to Tunisia (North Africa) and moved in with her in Germany after my studies was finished in January of 1988.
I was working for a German architect on-site of a project in Berlin the week the wall came down (And NO it was NOT because of Reagan’s “work”, but because of Mikhail Gorbachev’s transformation of the former Soviet Union from a Marxism-Leninism regime to a Social Democracy). I switched job to work for the 8th biggest Contractor in the world (at the time) HOCHTIEF AG as a project manager in 1991. At the same time I was introduced to my now wife Jenny (an American living and studying in German).
In 1999 HOCHTIEF AG bought Turner Construction Company and I got a job with them as a senior project manager in 2000 in San Francisco, CA. The Tech Boom turned into a Tech Bust in the fall of 2000, and the division I was working for in San Francisco lost 90% of their costumers overnight. They held on to me until 2002 where 80% of the staff was laid off due to lack of new costumers. I work on a resort project in Calistoga for Taisei Construction Company in 2003 until I turned self-employed in 2004 where I started my own investment company (Boomerang Property Solutions). Since 2004 I have actively worked on about 30 projects on my own or with partners.
