If you’re already a note buyer, you’ll learn how to use my advanced strategies to reach your financial goals with notes.

The Academy is four days of specialized training, insider secrets, examples of real-life note deals, networking with other note dealers, and much more… not to mention the included meals and riverboat cruise experiences that we will share together.

Over the years, I’ve noticed that my most successful students always come to the Academy prepared. These motivated individuals watched videos, listened to mp3s, and studied my materials before attending the Academy, and it has paid off big time for many of them.

That’s why I’m including a copy of The 2019 NoteBuyer’s Academy Media Set with your Academy registration.

Donna Bauer

The Original NoteBuyer®

“Note buying changed my life, and it can change your life, too. Here’s my story.”


30 years ago, I was living in Ohio and babysitting 5 kids for $1/hour each. We were struggling to make ends meet, but I was determined to be a stay-at-home mom to best raise my 4 children.

Then something happened…

I was walking out to my car to head to the store to buy some milk and bread, and I realized how sick and tired I was of having to count nickels and dimes just to keep the lights on.

I became determined to find a better way for us to provide for our family.

Before I began having children, I had 8 years of experience in property management, so I decided to get back in to the business. I contacted a local attorney and took him to lunch with the hopes he would hire me to manage his properties. Instead, he asked me to help with his discounted mortgage investment company.

Three months later, with his help and some home-study courses, I closed my first note deal and made a profit of $5,372!

Think about that for a second. How many hours would I have needed to babysit those 5 children in order to make $5,000? That’s right… over 1,000 hours! I would have had to babysit for over 6 months to make what I made in my first note deal.

Closing that first deal was one of the greatest things to ever happened to me, and my life hasn’t been the same since. The experience showed me three things:

1. Notes work.

2. Notes are something I can do.

3. Notes are something I can enjoy doing.

From that day forward, I’ve been working with notes. I’ve done everything under the sun with real estate investing, from owning rental properties to owning a title company, and I’ve learned that notes are, hands down, the fastest, easiest, and safest way to make huge profits in real estate.

I’m sharing this story with you because I want you to see that you can get started with notes no matter where you are now. Whether you’re looking for a way out of a financial struggle or are tired of the headaches that come along with traditional real estate investing, then you should definitely look into notes.

Here’s What Donna’s Students Are Saying About The Live Academy

“The experience has been invaluable. The relationships we’re developing are fabulous, and the food is great! I’ve taken the course before, but having come to the event now I’m sure I can get started with Donna’s support. We’ll more than likely be back again.”
