To Be Announced Mid 2020


Merrill Chandler
“The Million Dollar Funding Formula”

Merrill Chandler is the founder of “Credit Sense”. For over 25 years, Merrill, a co-founder of Lexington Law Firm, has been involved in credit repair, credit scoring, and lender underwriting requirements.  During that time, Merrill developed a process to optimize personal and business credit profiles to improve a borrower’s “Fundability” (i.e. credit score).  Based upon this concept, he founded Credit Sense to deliver his revolutionary technology to real estate investors seeking funding.

In 2016, Merril met with FICO CEO, Will Lansing, to review the impact that Credit Sense's optimization technology was having on a borrower's "fundability". Based upon that and other Fico meetings, Merrill’s presentation will radically transform what you believe about lenders and your ability to get funding for your real estate deals. Merrill is a compelling and knowledgeable speaker who explains fundability optimization technology in a language everyone can understand.  If you’re concerned about your credit score and/or funding your next deal (who isn’t), don’t miss Merrill’s presentation at our Grand Expo.   See More

Alton Jones
“How to Fix and Flip Houses"

HERE IS HIS VERY PERSONAL STORY: “As the owner of Rehabs 2 Riches, I’ve spent my life making connections. Right out of high school, I joined the Los Angeles Police Department and became a police officer. During that time, I had a lot of interesting experiences, and I met a variety of fascinating people.

Working alongside my mentor, the legendary Ron LeGrand, 14 years of real estate experience taught me two things. First, rehabbing homes is a way to help others, giving them a chance to buy beautiful and secure homes. Second, by working hard and working smart, rehabbing can be highly profitable. These lessons led me to develop Rehabs 2 Riches, a series of courses and books designed to teach anyone how to seize financial opportunity for themselves. Now, I have the privilege of passing on what I know and watching my students reach heights they never thought possible.”

If you’re like us, you hate real estate gurus who spend their time up-selling products rather than teaching. We understand they need to sell online courses and programs to cover their expenses, and we respect their knowledge. But geez, can’t they at least teach us something first before selling us?

Well, this won’t happen at our Grand Expo! We have required each speaker to sign a solemn promise that they’re going to spend at least 90% of their presentation actually teaching us real estate strategies and techniques. Only then, in the final minutes of their presentation, our speakers will explain what programs and materials they have available for those students that want to pursue that subject in more depth.  A fair resolution to all involved, don’t ya think!
