Schedule of events for Real Estate Road Map 2016

5:00 Doors Open/Networking
5:15-6:00 Speed Networking** Here is your chance to meet everyone in the room! Limited to first 50!

What is speed networking? 

Speed networking (or speed business meeting) is a meeting format designed to accelerate business contacts. Primarily, the practice involves multiple people that gather in a single space in order to exchange information.
Participants will have 45 seconds to speak to every single person doing speed networking! That means you’ll get the chance to network with 49 other like-minded individuals in under 1 hour! The first 50 attendees who arrive will take a seat in one of the 50 chairs lined up. When the timer begins you’ll each have 45 seconds to introduce yourself to person across from you and to give them your best elevator pitch. When the time ends everyone will rotate down a seat and the timer will restart. 
Networking can sometimes be awkward. This is a fun way to take the awkwardness out of the equation and to meet 49 other connections! Think of this as speed dating, but instead of meeting potential suitors your meeting potential business partners! This is a fast paced networking strategy so bring any information you’d like to hand out and make sure to have plenty of business cards handy! Since this is such a short time to network with each person exchanging business cards is a way to continue the conversation! Arrive early so you can join in on the fun!

Topic: How to find Private Money

Currently there are $5 trillion in investments in IRAs. According to recent projections, that number is expected to exceed $8 trillion by 2017. However, only about 5% of the current $5 trillion are self-directed funds. HUGE OPPORTUNITY to find private lenders using retirement money to loan to real estate investors.

As a Southwest Florida native, Kelsey Dineen is as rare as the Florida panther and twice as deadly when it comes to closing real estate transactions. Wild and elusive, she thrives in the legal jungle of self-directed IRAs and the IRS regulations surrounding them. As a graduate from the University of Florida, she is also referred to as a Gator. Carnivorous comparisons aside, she prefers tofu over steak. If you seek to purchase real estate or notes in a self-directed retirement plan, she is happy to serve as your guide.  Kelsey is very well know for local seminars on Real Estate IRAs.

Topic: Where are the current Demographic trends leading us? The hidden driver of the SWFL Real Estate Market.
