Mortgage Note Summer School

A Two Day Interactive Virtual Training Workshop

June 20th-21st, 2020
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM


Have you wanted to invest in real estate but thought that California real estate is too expensive? Have you wanted to invest in real estate without the fear of toilets, trash, and tenants? Do you have questions about notes but you were either afraid to ask or did not know who to ask?

Mortgage Note Summer School (MNSS) is a two-day interactive, hands-on virtual workshop that teaches YOU how to be the bank through the power of mortgage note investing.

Mortgage Note Summer School is the brainchild of Terrence Evans, founder of Terreva Investments and the Monthly Brunches of Notes meetup group based in metro Los Angeles, and Saprina Allen, note industry veteran and President of Main Street Asset Solutions, Inc. It was conceived first as a natural progression of Terrence's meetup group and second as a means to assist new, struggling note investors.

About MNSS

MNSS is meant for folks who fall into one of two categories:

  • You are an aspiring note investor who has received a limited note education in the past (from websites, books, podcasts, and webinars) but you now desire a deeper level of understanding, or
  • You are a passive investor but would like to understand better the nuts and bolts of note investing in order to improve your decision-making.

What will separate Note Summer School from other available live training workshops is the coverage.  Many workshops out there ONLY teach attendees about Non-Performing, 1st position mortgage notes.  There are others that ONLY are meant for beginning investors.  MNSS will cover both Non-Performing Notes and Performing Notes as well as first position notes and seconds.  We will walk you through the entire note investing process - from scanning spreadsheets (tapes) for good candidate assets to performing due diligence and how to calculate your potential profits (or losses).  We also will tackle how to purchase assets, servicing, and executing your exit strategies.  We will teach you about some of the potential pitfalls that can kill your investment along the way, including the various federal and state regulations that have popped up in recent years.

Neither Terrence nor Saprina are full-time workshop presenters (aka "gurus") who hide out in their ivory towers. They are both active investors who are dedicated to integrity and transparency.  MNSS attendees will hear the unfiltered truth and insights that Saprina and Terrence can give.  Attendees to MNSS will learn the same processes, tools, and techniques that they use in their daily investing lives.  Their ultimate goal is to help attendees understand the nuances and best practices of note investing (there are alot of them) so that they can be successful without breaking the bank.  Straight Talk. No BS.
