Prudential Georgia Realty Announces Strategic Relationship With OwnAmerica
Atlanta, GA (September 9, 2011) - Prudential Georgia Realty (www.PrudentialGA.com), the leading real estate brokerage in Metro Atlanta announced today that it has entered into a strategic relationship with OwnAmerica, a national web-based, resource and training organization for real estate investors and investment specialists. The affiliation allows Prudential Georgia Realty to provide analysis tools, tutorials and a video series to clients during one of the biggest real estate investment booms in history.
Using the Investor Knowledge Center, real estate investors can learn how to best capitalize on the struggling housing market's tidal wave of foreclosures, REO deals and quality real estate assets at rock-bottom prices and historically low financing. The Investor Knowledge Center is designed to accommodate both new real estate investors and seasoned investors.
OwnAmerica have created a new certification for agents called the OICP (OwnAmerica Investment Certification Program). This certification and the associated tools provide training and resources for Prudential Georgia Realty agents that want to specialize in real estate investing. In recent years, Prudential Georgia Realty has invested in a significant set of information resources to allow their agents to have better and more accurate local data. This powerful combination allows Prudential Georgia Realty agents to help their clients make the best decisions.
Prudential Georgia Realty also operates a large property management division and has a vast network of agents for leasing and tenant procurement. The company will be all to provide a full solution for investors who want to purchase properties, have them managed and find new tenants. This full service offering allows agents associated with Prudential Georgia Realty to provide a professional turn-key experience for investors with all levels of experience.
OwnAmerica and the Investor Knowledge Center were created by Greg Rand, a twenty-year real estate industry veteran and author of the book Crash Boom! to prevent investors from getting burned.
"We've seen too many people giving bad advice about 'getting rich quick' in real estate. Real estate is a long-term wealth building asset. We created OwnAmerica to show our clients how to do it right," says Rand, CEO of OwnAmerica and host of WABC's Rand on Real Estate.
"The current market is very attractive for investors, but investing in real estate is quite different than traditional home buying and selling," explains Dan Forsman, President & CEO of Prudential Georgia Realty. "It's a more complex process requiring additional levels of expertise. The Investor Knowledge Center provides the resources to make investing in real estate simple, profitable and even fun. Our company will provide a complete investor solution including research & analysis, property acquisition, property management and tenant procurement.
