Speed Networking & Expert Panel

Last month we spent an evening getting to know our most valuable vendors in the Puget Sound. This month we are going to focus on our most valuable members.....YOU.  We are working hard at creating a networking evening that will include Speed Dating (Networking) and Expert Panels made up of members who do ONE THING really, really well. Need to find out who the bird dogs are in our group? Need to find out who has private money to lend? Need to find out who you can wholesale your deals to? This is the event for you. We will have full details and how you can best participate soon. For now, just make sure you are registered.

I am looking for people to help me with this meeting. I am looking for 10-15 people that do one thing really, really well in their business. Here are some brainstorming ideas on how you might be able to contribute.

1.  Do you use VA's to off load most of your tedious, non-revenue generating work?

2.  Are you a bird dog who finds properties to wholesale?

3.  Are you an expert at evaluating what a rehab will cost?

4.  Do you consider yourself adept at determing ARV and general property valuations?

5.  Are you great at bookeeping, tax planning and maximizing your write-off's in your business?

6.  Are you a systems person...organized to no-end?

7.  Are you focused primarily on sourcing off-market properties?

8. Are you focused on making great deals with MLS listed properties?

9. Is your business focused primarily on notes?

10.  Do you have a knack for talking and negotiating with sellers?

11.  Do you have a sharp skill for staging and marketing properties?

12.  Is your business focused on lease option solutions rather than conventional landlording?

13.  Do you consider yourself great at managing properties with low vacancy and maximizing cash flow?

14.  Do you have a solid, predictable direct mail campaign that works?

You see, each of us does something really well in our business and this month we are going to share that skill with your fellow members. In order for this to work I need you to volunteer to chair a round table discussion with small groups of members on your skill...and I will help you do it.
