I took a seminar from these guys in Vegas about 2.5 years ago. I still keep in contact with Kevin Shortle (kevin was the guy on TV), Fred Horwin, Elisa Stabile, etc… Believe me, if you go to their seminar for around $6,000 you will spend the next week listening to them tell you why you need to purchase more of their stuff… about another $2 to $10,000 worth. Believe me, you don’t really need all of this to begin. AIG will try to make you believe that buying home courses wont help you. Well, it is my experience that some of the home courses out there today are extremelely helpful and much, much cheaper. However, if you feel you need to have you hand held by a "coach"
and to drive you around and show you houses… not to mention have enough money to spend, then by all means go to the AIG seminar.
Believe me there are cheaper and just as effective of ways to learn real estate investing. Ron LeGrand has three home courses that are hands down the best out there today. They each sell for $600 and are sometimes all three on ebay for around $800 for all three. The courses come with 3 manuals and CD sets (the CDs are recordings from his seminars).
It is my experience that you should educate yourself as cheaply as possible at first, make some money from real estate, then spend the big bucks to attend very in depth seminars. Don’t spend around $6000 to learn beginner stuff. It is really not necessary.
Now understand, I am not trying to sell or promote ones or the others materials… I am just trying to tell you how I would do it if I had it to do all over again. Like I said, I have been AIG’s seminars, and have LeGrands materials… in my opinion, LeGrand’s stuff is better and cheaper. Then when you make some money, you can spend around $6000 and attend his specific seminars which will take the knowledge and expertise that you already have, refine it, and turn you into a real pro.
Again, if you are a beginner, don’t spend that kind of money to learn the basics… I know those guys at AIG and they are VERY GOOD at motivation and they will get you to spend all kinds of money before you have even made one penny.
