PORTLAND, OR — local, veteran real estate investor/mentor teams up with international speaker/consultant for one-time only, free webinar on September 5th, to teach Portland real estate investment entrepreneurs how to find sellers before they list, without spending a dime.
Portland real estate investor John Sheldon has participated in the dramatic rise, precipitous fall, and slow recovery of the Portland real estate investment market since 2001.
Even though he has personally made money on nearly every one of over 200 transactions, he watched over the past four years as the metaphorical ground crumbled beneath the feet of hundreds of investors and in cases, devastated their financial lives.
He decided to do something about it.
In early 2012, Sheldon created How to Invest in Real Estate Portland, a free real estate investment group and joint venture partnering club. The group educates and empowers new and experienced Portland real estate investors to succeed in the new real estate market, with its fluctuating values, shifting economics, and rapidly changing marketing practices.
“I love to teach people to safely profit and to avoid problems,” states Sheldon. “That’s why it’s been so rewarding for me to hold these webinars. I’ve gotten tremendous feedback from members and mentoring partners. They’ve told me they’ve discovered new confidence and made or saved thousands because of advice I’ve shared.
“But one of the biggest problems I’ve heard,” continues Sheldon, “is the lack of funds to carry on effective marketing. I’ve regularly spent thousands of dollars per month in direct marketing, but not many investors have that capability.
“So, I went in search of the best local resource I could find to help investors find low or no-cost methods of marketing. I found exactly what I was looking for in Jerry Fletcher.”
Jerry Fletcher of Z-axis Marketing, Inc. is a business development expert. He founded his consulting and speaking agency in 1990 when he left his position as CEO of a successful Portland advertising agency.
A professional speaker for 17 years, Fletcher is also a Certified Professional Consultant and prolific author, with three books, seven audio programs and four video programs.
Fletcher has birthed high-tech companies in garages, counseled boards of directors and worked with successful companies in conference rooms and kitchens.
Known also as “The Networking Ninja”, he has helped business people from companies small and large across America to discover new ways to build trust and mutually profitable business relationships.
Together in this one-time, free event, Sheldon and Fletcher will explore and reveal concepts of zero-cost marketing that will empower real estate entrepreneurs to:
- Get to home owners before they list
- Stay top of mind with neighborhood authorities
- Make sure everyone they know is working to bring them profitable properties
“Real estate investing injects new cash and life into local communities, helps sellers, and keeps Portland great,” emphasizes Sheldon. “This live webinar event will remove the biggest obstacle many investors face today. We invite any Portland real estate investment entrepreneur facing these issues to attend.”
