Ward Hanigan, The One, The Only! The Legend in Our Minds!
Plus a 2019 Tax Update from from Tony Watson of Robert Hall & Associates, CPAs
Just know that Ward is "The Man" that EVERYONE goes to for help with problems in real estate, foreclosure, trusts, etc.
We will start off the program with Tony Watson of Robert Hall & Associates, Tax Consultants. Tony will give us a tax update for 2019. You need to know the changes to the tax laws in order to effectively plan to minimize any tax liability BEFORE the year's end.
And we will end the evening with the one-and-only (thank goodness) Ward Hanigan. Ward is the person that ALL the gurus go to to get their questions answered!!! Me too! His presentation, Tons of Niches (used to be Sons of Niches & was funnier), will show you real estate niches that most of you NEVER heard of. AND HOW TO HOLD TITLE!!!
If you read our weekly LAREIA Saturday Summary, you'll notice that I am always referring to possible profitable real estate niches. Large amounts of money are made by people that specialize in specific real estate specialties and become the expert in those niches.
Ward is going to serve up a smorgasbord of niches for you to consider. And he is providing all attendees with a 9 PAGE HANDOUT of information.
How many speakers have ever done that! I can count them on one hand in over 27 years of presentations!!!
Be there or be square!
AND REMEMBER! WE HAVE THE ROOM TO 11 PM AND THE BAR IS NOW OPEN TO US FOR ADULT BEVERAGES... AFTER THE MEETING.
About Ward Hanigan:
Since 1970 Ward Hanigan has worked in the real estate field full-time.
His first real estate position was with Countrywide Funding as a field loan solicitor for 2 years.
He then struck out on his own and got his real estate license. For the next 10 years he specialized in the apartment brokerage business...buying, selling, and managing apartment buildings for investors.
When that market cratered in 1982 (due to excessively high interest rates) he switched gears. For the next 24 years he focused exclusively on flipping foreclosures that he bought at local, courthouse auctions (Trustee Sales). During that time he bought, fixed up, and re-sold about 500+ foreclosure properties, parlaying his initial grubstake from $86K into seven figures.
As a consequence, Ward is THE most knowledgeable and well-known foreclosure expert in Southern California–not only due to his expertise, but more importantly, his willingness to fearlessly train newbies. He has personally trained about 1,800+ individuals, one on one, on the intricacies of raising cash, title searching, rehabbing, and reselling foreclosure flippers.
In addition, over the years he has taught a large number of individuals on the methodology of holding title to real estate in a title holding trust for anonymity reasons.
In 2015, at the annual “I Survived Real Estate” event, the Norris Group presented Ward with the prestigious Rhony Award. The Rohny is a lifetime achievement and mentorship honorific, which lauds distinguished individuals who have elevated the real estate investing profession with their outstanding leadership, and willingness to share their knowledge and work with others.
Ward continues to offer private, hands-on trainings at his San Diego office and continues adding to his growing collection of Dingbat rental houses in California and Arizona.
