We talk about all things real estate and try to put a focus on west Georgia. Come and enjoy yourself with good people, good food, some drinks, and -- hopefully -- helpful education! It's a free event for anyone coming for the first time, but subsequent meetings require a membership to GAREIA. Membership is $150 for the first year and $100 for renewal. Honestly, one of the best values in real estate investing in the Atlanta area. So, if you are interested in real estate investing in Cobb, Douglas, Carroll, Paulding, or Haralson counties, come on out!

SPEAKER THIS MONTH: Rod Lyles of Dependable Termite and Pest Control

--- Details ---

It’s that time again! The next meeting of the Cobb/West GA Subgroup meeting! This month we will welcome Rod Lyles of Dependable Termite and Pest Control. Rod has been in the pest control industry for over 20 years with his family-run pest control business out of Mableton and has been a valuable resource for me personally on nearly all of my properties since I started flipping. Before I met Rod, I had to weed through so many unscrupulous pest control guys. Seriously, the amount of “termite infestations” many companies kept wanting to point out and treat for was a bit ridiculous. For whatever reason the pest control industry seem to be full of shysters – always trying to upsell and point out problems where there are none – but Rod is the exception and has always been an honest and dependable resource for me as a real estate investor. He’s a good guy and he’s got a lot of great information on pest control problems that affect us as real estate investors.

Rod will be joining us next week to talk about pest control for those active in the real estate investing scene. Want to know how to spot termites? Want to know what to look out for in less-than-honest pest control companies? Need some DIY solutions to a minor pest control problem at one of your rentals? Then come on out next Thursday the 11th at 6:30pm at the O’Charley’s off Austell Rd for some good food, good people, and some good pest control education!
