Welcome to "RESI" -- The Real Estate Strategies Institute

Providing California-specific Legal Training To Your Real Estate Coach's Program

  • The Real Estate Strategies Institute, Inc. ("RESI") is the education and training arm of California real estate attorney, Ronald M. Ballard. Ron has been advising real property owners, investors and entrepreneurs since 1983. Recently, he has been appearing and speaking at various national training seminars for real estate entrepreneurs and investors. The national trainers and coaches are most familiar with their home States. Some offer a few specialized documents and instructions for particular States. Due to the size of the California market and its many special laws and regulations, the need to create specialized training for real estate entrepreneurs and investors in the California market became apparent.

  • Therefore, Ron created the Real Estate Strategies Institute. The initial purpose of RESI is to create specialized California master documents and procedures for national and non-California training systems, in conjunction with the trainers. As such, RESI is not a competitor to any trainer, coach or "guru," but a specialized "overlay" for the trainers' students to more effectively navigate the California market. RESI complements your national training. It doesn't replace it.
  • You can follow Ron Ballard's blog at www.CaliforniaShortSaleLawyer.com .

  • RESI goes beyond the general forms and procedures taught by the national training organization by providing California specific sample legal documents and operational advice provided by a California practicing attorney who knows the particular training program you have signed up for. As such, RESI subscribers receive much deeper and California specific guidance than the can from their national trainer. While RESI education and training is provided by a California attorney, it is still only education and training. Joining RESI does not establish an attorney-client with Ron Ballard or the Ballard Law Office. Members should still seek specific legal advice about applying the forms and procedures to their business. Ron can be retained by RESI members at a favorable member rate through the Ballard Law Office.

  • Due to the heavy, immediate demand from students in various training, this is the "quick roll-out web site" for RESI. It, and RESI, are planned to rapidly grow deeply and broadly to meet the diverse demands of the quickly growing base of subscribers.
