Looking Back: WhereWeWere Thinking Realty in the Past 12 Months
hink Realty started 2017 off with a partnered group event in San Diego, California, where we joined forces with the San Diego Investment Club. The conference featured local and national speakers who covered timely topics including diversi- fication, economic predictions, property insurance insights, and how to leverage real estate investing strategies for solid returns in a variety of ways, including flipping, whole- saling, rehabbing, and renting, both turnkey and otherwise. Bruce Norris, founder of real estate investment firmThe Norris Group, kicked off the day with an inspirational presentation on “The 10 Most Important Days in Your Real Estate Career.” The day closed with local real estate sensation Ken- dall Stock of Sage Investing LLC with “How to Find All the Money You’ll Ever Need to Invest in Real Estate.” In April, Think Realty headed to Dallas, Texas, for its National Conference & Expo themed “Enterprising Minds.” Think Realty debuted the first four members of a powerful new coaching team that has since expanded to include expert educators specializing in everything from rentals to rehabs, marketing to commercial investing, and creative deals to effective networking. This conference also was the site of a num- ber of other firsts, includingThink Realty’s “Women to Watch in Real Estate” panel, a veterans’ Rally Point hosted by HGTV T
other groups at home and abroad. In Au- gust 2017, Think Realty powered an event in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Triangle Real Estate Investors Association (TREIA) hosted the two-day event in conjunction with Think Realty, and both organizations provided a powerful team of instructors and educators to the benefit of attendees. Real estate icons Ron LeGrand and Steve Down both spoke during dedicated ses- sions, and TREIA hosted a private dinner with LeGrand for attendees who signed up to ask the real estate legend questions in a more intimate setting. In September 2017, Think Realty took an elite team of investors all the way to Shanghai, China, to participate in the three-day Global Destination Investment Summit, an event co-hosted by Think Realty. Shanghai is home to Affinity Investments, an international branch of Think Realty’s parent compa- ny. Affinity Investments is dedicated to helping Chinese investors identify and invest in credible investment opportuni- ties in the United States. If you missed a Think Realty event, don’t worry!

star and veteran Andy Williams, the Think LIVE! Booth, where real estate experts were interviewed live on social media, and a post- event networking reception that included live entertainment from rising country music star Tori Martin. The next conference and expo took place in Baltimore, Maryland, at the end of June. As usual, Think Realty’s groundbreaking educational teams were on the ground instructing and providing one-on-one personal insight to attendees. The theme in Baltimore was “Navigating the Legal Landscape” and the conference once again debuted a cutting-edge panel presentation complementing the conference theme. A panel of legal and real estate experts dealt with complicated policies and leg- islative issues facing real estate investors today and offered actionable solutions for investors struggling with these issues. The American Association of Private Lenders (AAPL) also partnered in this event with its own exclusive educational track, and a number of local politicians and D.C. “movers and shakers” were seen in attendance as well. More coaches were added to the Think Realty coaching program. Key- note speakers included Financially Fit’s Steven Down and Good Success. Recently, Think Realty teamed up with
