Crowne Plaza Charlotte Executive Park
What to Say to a Seller & How to Make a Written Offer

Bill CookWe are excited to announce that Bill Cook will be our special guest speaker this month at Charlotte REIA on Thursday, May 7th at 6PM at the Crowne Plaza Charlotte Executive Park located at 5700 Westpark Dr in Charlotte, NC (map). Bill will be teaching us how to talk with sellers and make profitable, written offers on the spot.

When you meet with a seller, do you know what to say? Do you know the most important questions to ask? Can you make a written offer right there on the spot?

Again: Do you know how to make a written offer right there on the spot?

The #1 reason most would-be real estate investors fail is because of F-E-A-R! The fear of not knowing what to say, and the fear of a seller’s reaction to a low offer. What if you could make a safe, full-price offer to every seller?

How can you tell if fear is holding YOU back? Here’s an easy test: 1) How many sellers have you met with this month? 2) This year? If YOUR numbers are less than YOU think they should be, why are they less? Are you even tracking these two most-important numbers?

Remember: The alpha and omega of successful real estate investing is getting face-to-face with sellers and making a lot of written offers!

Do you want to SEE how to do this in action? Do you want to SEE where the best deals are right now? At Charlotte REIA’s meeting on May 7th, Bill Cook will explain what he says to a seller, and how he makes a written offer right there on the spot!

Sure Bill can talk the talk, but he also walks the walk!

But wait… there is more!

Get ready for something VERY special… something almost no real estate investing teacher will do. On Saturday, May 9th, Bill will spend the day with a select group of investors in neighborhoods SHOWING YOU how he knocks on homeowners’ doors, gets 8 out of 10 sellers to invite him in, and how he makes written offers right there on the spot!

When was the last time you spent the day with an experienced dealmaker getting face-to-face with sellers and making written offers in the real world? Ever?

Will you learn something new at the May 7th and 9th events? You bet! Will you see things you’ve never seen before? Positively! Will you be able to take what you’ve learned and put it to use the next day? Absolutely!

Bill & Kim Cook have been investing in real estate for more than twenty years! They’ve built their business square on the back of knocking on sellers’ doors. They have tons of experience at creatively constructing and funding win-win deals. Their investing portfolio is made up of single-family rental homes, mobile homes, a small mobile home park, plus notes and options. To learn more about Bill and Kim, Click Here!
