Creating Wealth with Abandoned Properties!

June 27, 2014
Reggie Brooks

Reggie Brooks

REIA-NCI is very excited to have Reggie Brooks share his trade secrets in a unique and very profitable niche in the marketplace called “Abandoned Properties”.

You might pass these properties on a daily basis, but just never pay much attention to them. You could be passing up hundreds of thousnads of dollars in profits! These are properties that the owner has walked away from for whatever reason. It could be a divorce situation, and illness, a death in the family, job relocation, or any  number of other reasons. Do we care why? Absolutely not! Don’t wast your energy trying to figure out why sellers do what sellers do.

Reggie Brooks is going to share many of his unique strategies that YOU can use to find extremely motivated sellers with abandoned properties and all the while avoid the competition!

Reggie teaches unconventional ways of finding distressed properties, strategically repairing those properties, and systematically selling them higher than the prevailing market. “It’s very simple when you take the time to learn how” Over the years, Reggie has developed his Success Systems that consistently turn marginal deals into extremely profitable deals. Reggie teaches his Success System all over Aamerica. His students stay that the combination of his insightful knowledge with a sheer joy for teaching makes the learning process pleasurable.
