General Meeting

Networking starts at 6 pm
Featured Presentation: 7:30 pm

"Use Your Head,
Not Your Money"

Photo of Pete Fortunato

Presented by: Pete Fortunato

We call him "Peter the Great" for a good reason. You'll know why after you hear him speak at the May meeting.

When people get started in real estate, they may not have any money. As a result, they often don't start. They wait and wait and wait while they save some money, or attempt to save with good intentions that never materialize.

Is that the process you have to take to get started? What if you were to go ahead and make the deal without having the money? How could you do that? Come hear Pete's opinion of how you can use your brain right now instead of waiting for your capital to show up before you start.

Peter Fortunato is one of the most respected people in the real estate arena. He’s been called “one of the best minds in real estate.” He has a knack for thinking of solutions others would never consider. Pete has solved many people’s real estate problems with his natural ability to create solutions with the best results for all involved, including the buyer, the seller, and even any third parties that may have interest in the deal.

Pete has been building, structuring, manipulating, and managing real estate transactions and portfolios for nearly 50 years.

Upon graduating from high school in 1965, Peter went right into the real estate business. He attended seminars and read at every opportunity. He sought out and learned from many mentors and benefited from the example and counsel of his father who encouraged him and supported him from the beginning.

He finished college with a clientele and an investment portfolio. By 1975 his investment income had eliminated his need for fees from clients to fund his lifestyle.

Pete continues to teach and to attend real estate and investment seminars and meetings regularly. He is respected for his clear and patient explanations of investment concepts and transactions. He believes that transactions which you can be proud of result from carefully conceived goals and plans followed by purposeful actions and scrupulous documentation.

"Be Prepared with Ray:
Don't Let Your Insurance Company Rip You Off "

Presented by: Raymond A. Altieri, III
Altieri Transco American Claims Corporation

"Ray the Third" helps people get desirable results in insurance claims, everything from broken pipes to fires, floods, and hurricanes.

He will be revealing:

  • What you need to know before you deal with the insurance company

  • The different options you can take when disaster strikes

  • How the steps you end up taking can affect you, for better or for worse. (Learn how to get the "better" and avoid the "worse.")

Altieri Transco professionals have been working claims for Florida property owners since 1988. Corporately based in Tampa, for the better part of the last three decades, our Florida State licensed adjusters have been a trusted partner of residential and commercial property insurance policyholders as their public insurance adjuster and loss consultant.

Raymond A. Altieri, III, or Ray the third as he has come to be known, is the Vice President of Business Development for Altieri Transco American Claims Corporation. Ray is charged with the management and oversight of all corporate outreach into the community as it relates to new business. Ray has been with Altieri Transco since 2003 where he has performed a multitude of duties providing a foundation to his growth within the company during the last 13 years.

To know Ray is to know that he is passionate about his profession as a Florida State licensed Professional Public Adjuster. He believes in what we do and is an extremely effective advocate for those who are wise enough to take advantage of what he offers. Ray uses the competitive spirit honed as a college baseball player to advocate and win for our clients.

Ray has worked for hundreds of commercial and residential property owners as their personal professional claim advocate. He has become an expert in handling fire, flood, water, and hurricane claims for his clients. Ray has gained the respect of many insurance company adjusters through his presentation of damage and insurance policy coverage analysis skills.

Ray is a member of both State and National Associations of Public Insurance Adjusters, sitting on various committees. He is committed to his profession by submitting to hundreds of hours of Continuing Education over the years to stay current on all matters of property adjusting. Ray is a highly-regarded and frequently-requested adjuster within the Altieri Transco network of clients.
