Here's just a sample of what other investors who have attended Mark's seminars and member of National Real Estate Network have said about their experience:
I recommend the Premier Investment Group very highly. Mark and his team gives you not only an insight to the investment world, but offers the support you need to succeed. The seminars and speakers are some of the best I have been associated with aiding in solutions to problems we all occur. Mark has always made time to answer my questions. Finally the group is a great way to network with other investors.
--Rob Meyers of Michigan
It is my opinion that Patrick Munce and MI REI Network presented one of the most informative and useful seminars I have ever attended. The subject was well received and presented in a format that was very understandable. Needless to say I will be there Saturday, Jan 28th. Thanks MI REI Network.
--Bill Souriall of Michigan
Mark Maupin and the Mega Evening Event are an excellent resource for beginning investors to the experienced investors. I recently attended the Jeff Kaller event in November that Mark brought and it was a wealth of information. For anyone looking to investing in Detroit the Mega Evening Event is a must!!!
--Jeff Dameron of Michigan
Pat and Mark,Great presentation on Credit.I enjoyed learning about the importance of monitoring and optimizing your own credit as well as the buyer's credit.
--Hans Steiner of Michigan
I've been in many REIA and other club meetings but nothing compare to Mega Evening Event, if you have not been in one yet let me just tell you... What are you waiting for? You got to go and listen to the National and Local great speakers that they bring to you every month like Mr. Pre-foreclosure Jeff Kaller, Mr. Landlord Jeffrey Taylor, and many others great speakers. If you are new or seasoned investor you will love the Mega Evening Event they will try to help you as much as they can. Also you will meet new like-minded people, it's a great Networking event. If you don't have your Dream Team yet for your Real Estate investing business then you got to go there, you'll meet a high quality people that you can add to your winning team. When I was going to the Event the first time, I wasn't sure that I would join the group, but after I got there I was hooked and I'm glad I did go. If you have not been there yet you got to go at least once or twice and you'll be hooked too. Mark Just wanted to tell you: that you and your team are doing a fantastic job and the Event is just Awesome. Keep up the good work.

Mark's program is very informative, lot's of great exit strategies, purchase strategies ... one of the most effective and informative seminars I've ever been to. We are in the process of tying up a few properties right now using strategies from that program.
- Darian Moore
This was my second time through. Every time I attend these events I'm learning more and more detailed information, my confidence sky rockets ... it just motivates you more to get involved actually doing deals ... great learning experiences. Now I'm able to take the information I have and get involved in any situation that's out there.

|Currently I'm concentrating on the foreclosure business and the exit strategy on the foreclosure business doesn't work out just
automatically when you go to sell a property. So the lease option is going to help tremendously as an exit strategy.
- Peter Surur
I'd already done two lease options, but after attending Mark's seminar I realized that I'd made some mistakes. I hadn't signed the purchase agreement at the right time, so my tenant is not on the hook as Mark was explaining. I went back and talked to my tenant and did what Mark had showed me how to do. Now they have paid me $5,000 down ... I have another $8,000 note ... and they are paying me $300 per month (on the note) until they buy the house. So I'm making extra cash flow and they are going to buy my house within one-half year.
