with Special Guests

G. Russell Donaldson, Esq.
Don’t Get Taken Advantage Of…
Dirty tricks. Invest in real estate long enough, and they’ll find you. It’s a good thing you’re about to meet Glenn Donaldson, Esq. You might remember seeing him on the news when he prosecuted the owner of a popular Baltimore nightclub for installing a camera in the ladies’ bathroom, or when he led a class action lawsuit to expose that big time Maryland real estate brokerage. But what most people don’t know about this celebrity attorney is that he’s actually the owner of a residential real estate portfolio spanning six states. Glenn has been growing his real estate collection for decades, and he’s going to show you how to protect yourself from one of the most dangerous areas of investing.
Dealing with general contractors is one of the fastest ways to lose money in real estate. It’s about more than just making sure people do what they promise, it’s about establishing shared expectations, finding the best in others, and helping them find it in themselves. And whether your next project is a gut rehab or a simple bathroom remodel, it’s also about making sure in advance that when things go sideways, you, your family, your savings, and your property are locked down, safe and sound. That’s where our special guest speaker, Glenn Donaldson, comes in; join us at the next MD REIA and learn:
- What key clauses should go into your construction contract?
- What you absolutely, positively need to know before hiring a general contractor.
- How to bulletproof your assets from mechanics’ liens.
- Smart money management tips for any construction project.
- The most common mistakes rehabbers make and how to avoid them.
What could be better than the MD REIA bringing you valuable real estate investing tips from one real estate expert? As a special bonus to you, this month we’re also bringing you profitable real estate ideas and insights from one of Maryland’s top litigators, Superlawyers’ Rising Star, US Supreme Court bar member, and one of Maryland’s premiere negotiators, Mr. Tom Donnelly, Esq. We can’t wait for Tom to open the vault, share his favorite real estate war stories from his decades of experience, and unveil the powerful lessons he learned from each of them. He’s a true talent, a pleasure to watch, and we’re honored to bring him to you…
Tom Donnelly, Esq.

MD REIA – February 2017
“Transform Baltimore – A Review with Caroline Hecker, Esq.”
Zoning and Politics and The Department of Planning
… oh my!
Caroline Hecker, Esq.
Our first MDREIA meeting of the season kicked off with a lively discussion on upcoming changes in Baltimore law that will affect every investor, property owner, business & resident in Baltimore City.
We were very fortunate to bring you these updates by the very versatile and very talented Caroline Hecker, Esq. whose expertise and direct knowledge of the “Transform Baltimore” and the Baltimore department of planning brought a no-frills, all-facts presentation for our members to learn.
Understanding zoning regulation might not be the most glamorous facet of being involved in the world of Real Estate, but when it means additional money in your pocket, it’s something worth understanding.
Our members engaged in a vigorous Q&A that asked questions about the appeals process, what to do in the event of an erroneous code filing, what are the immediate changes that are set to come to come with the new code regulations and most importantly, how it would factor in their own personal properties and businesses.
At MDREIA, we see all the layers of Real Estate Business, not just the obvious ways to profit. We firmly believe that knowledge can directly translate to dollars and we aim to bring our members access to speakers and topics that are the most value to their businesses.
We would like to thank Caroline Hecker, Esq. for her insight, her time and for sharing her perspective with our community.
