Experienced Teachers with Local Focus

You’ll learn from local, experienced teachers—all of whom are successful investors in the Atlanta area.

They will teach you what works in Georgia. How Georgia law is applied. How Georgia foreclosures work. How properties are valued right here in Georgia.

You don’t have to get on an airplane and fly to California to learn how foreclosures work there and then translate them to local law and regulations.

You will hear about the costs of renovation right here at home. We’ll talk about property values, foreclosure rates, appreciation rates right here in Georgia. You will be able to go out on the Monday following Boot Camp weekend and put this knowledge to work.

See what some previous attendees had to say:

“GaREIA’s Boot Camp is more beneficial then I could have imagined! It was well worth the money for the education and the contacts with both members and investors.”

“I was exposed to different ways of making money in real estate. I also learned an awful lot from our bus tour. Hearing those varying opinions and learning how to evaluate properties on site were invaluable.”

“An impressive amount of information and a great opportunity to get questions answered!”

“This was an unforgettable experience. I will spread the word. Great job, GaREIA!”
