Robert R. Rios with R-MAC Properties, Inc. 

“Why Americans are investing in Baja”

Come hear why thousands of Californians have retired in “Luxury on the Beach” in Baja California and why we are looking for Real Estate Professionals to represent us in California.

R-MAC Properties, Inc. is an established International Real Estate Development & Marketing Company founded by two real estate brokers whose primary concern is meeting their client’s wants and needs with the highest level of professionalism.

15 years ago, R-MAC co-founders Robert R. Rios and Michael Cresci set forth to build an organization that followed this philosophy. Now, after years of experience and record sales in the Baja region, R-MAC is considered by many to be the best in the industry. The partners now strive to have
their company continue to evolve and grow with the changing times.

R -MAC’s success is due, in part, to the hard work and dedication of many sales professionals who made every effort to make the organization’s dream a reality. This commitment has allowed R -MAC to reach a pinnacle of success that many thought could never be achieved south of the border.

R-MAC Properties, Inc. is the ideal place to hang your real estate license. Millions of dollars in sellable inventory, exotic, water-enhanced locations, a fun and professional work environment and great income potential are just a few of the reasons to join the team.

“Nobody else in our industry is doing what we are,” says Cresci., This is not just any other real estate agency. “We have over 30 years in the field. We continue to walk in the same shoes as our sales agents and wouldn’t ask them to do anything that we don’t do ourselves,” says Rios, who is also the company sales trainer. “R-MAC is the company that will back you through every step of the process in today’s ever-changing marketplace.”

If you are searching for a rewarding career change that allows for a real six figure income potential, then come see for yourself why we are considered to be one of the greatest finds in the real estate market today.

We leave you with the same words we share with our valued customers: “Give us just a few minutes to show you what we’ve got to offer and we may just change your life.”

Meet the Publisher:

 Linda Pliagas, Licensed California Agent and National Investor

Hello, thanks for connecting with us! I’d like to tell you a bit about me.

Come discover techniques that can help YOU understand real estate and skyrocket your portfolio.

This event will offer information on a variety of niches, plus fantastic networking. Our events are responsible for bringing together the TOP leaders of real estate. Many people often end up doing business with the people they meet at our events around the country.

TRUE STORY HOW I FOUND $$$: I met my own personal private lender at one of my events in California, he lent me $150K to close my last deal for half a million dollars. 

In fact, I have purchased three single family rehab properties in California in the past 18 months totaling $1.5 million, pretty good for someone who put themselves through college by waiting tables – I come from humble beginnings, trust me!

SAMPLE DEAL IN SANTA BARBARA COUNTY: Purchased 3/2 property in Santa Ynez Valley for $435K;  Trustee sale, we beat 3 other offers, including one priced higher! My husband and I invested $18,000 into the rehab and we just got a BPO (Broker Price Opinion) only 7 months later for $650,000.That’s $197K Gross Profit!!**

My favorite part of the deal? I used the same tile man that Oprah Winfrey hires… WOW!!

Our national events have reached THOUSANDS of investors around the country and in California. We work with the top REIA and independent real estate clubs around the world. I personally attend many clubs including my local Santa Barbara REIA.  I’ve been landlording for 20 years and I have a wealth of knowledge, so my mission is to help others gain the confidence, information and resources they need to succeed in real estate.

I hope you can join us, please come say hello to me!

About Cliff Gager:

Hi my name is Cliff Gager, and I began my journey in real estate way back in 1992. I founded a very successful real estate brokerage, a mortgage brokerage business, and a real estate investment company. I have bought – fixed – and sold hundreds of single family residential houses, made really good profits, and had a blast doing it!

Over the last 17 years I have been sharing my extensive experience with people that wanted to achieve their dreams of becoming real estate investors.

a few years ago I formed a real estate education company and was hired by many of the “TV & Seminar” real estate gurus, I was fortunate to be the “end result” of what they paid the gurus a lot of money for. Now the gurus hired me to teach their customers because I actually had the real world  experience and track record of helping hundreds of people just like you create successful and profitable real estate deals.

Today I have been away from the “guru – hotel ballroom – real estate seminar” circuit and all I have heard are the many stories about how people spent their life savings and beyond to achieve the dream of being a real estate investor and ended up very short of the guru’s promises!

These sad stories caused me to create the programs that I now provide to all of my clients. I bring to the table real training with real techniques that work for anyone that employs the strategies in todays market. I provide this at a very reasonable cost to allow everyone to obtain working knowledge without breaking their bank to attend.

This year I created an Online Real Estate Training Membership Site that provides all my available training media, at an extremely affordable price. I am constantly introducing new techniques and investment strategy methods that incorporate current market needs. By updating my materials on a daily basis, the members get real and true value since they will actually be able to apply it instantly to create profitable deals.

I absolutely love real estate, the opportunity it provides, and the joy of helping people like you make life altering changes in the way they will prosper in their financial future

Let me help you achieve your goals and I can assure you… you will be glad you did!

Going to this meeting?  Please RSVP Here or at Meetup
