Chicago South Side Meet up

11 Replies

Hi Bp,

I'm new to BP and I'd love to interact in person with some members who are interested in getting together on the South Side of Chicago preferably in Hyde Park or Bronzeville. Please hit me up here if you have any interest in talking about marketing, financing and just getting started. Thanks.

Hey Mark, thanks for responding. Another member offered to invite me to a ongoing meeting in the South Loop. I'll be more than happy to ask her if you can come as well.

@Andre Davis I would really appreciate it if you can PM the South Loop meeting details.

@VictorOlowu, as I said to Mark I was extended a kind hand from a BP member and I will certainly ask her if all 3 of us so far may attend. I'm still willing to meet some where even if it is just the 3 of us. One man can impact the world, imagine what three BP newbies could do.

@Victor Olowu   and @Mark Ainley I would be willing to meet this weekend since it's just the 3 of us so far. There is a Starbucks in Bronzeville on 35th and State. We can talk about getting started with marketing. I also listened to a killer podcast featuring Grant Kemp (show 70) on "subject to" financing which may be another good topic. Saturday around noon is great for me. Also, I could take you by my property that I'm rehabbing for my personal home just to get an idea of the process if you haven't gotten started on a project YET. I hope to use my home project as a way to build a track record.

Sorry fellas was browsing the thread here.  Noticed the mention of podcast 70 and those tactics.  Here is the link to the follow up thread on the program.  It is an important read if you are thinking about deploying similar tactics.  

What is your official head count for this meeting?

@Andre Davis I like your idea of getting something started. I also use Meetup.com (or the app) to find a lot of REI events in the city. Maybe we could set up a Meetup group and have monthly/quarterly meetups in the Hyde Park area.

Also, my Saturday afternoon is already pretty booked for this week.  Maybe next week?

Hey guys, although I currently live in NW Indiana, I'm from Chicago and invest heavily in Chicago, so I would be interested in meeting up with the group to start talking real estate. Please keep me in the loop, thanks.

Hey @DionDePaoli, thanks for the info! Nothing official yet as far as head count. What you see hear is the gist of our plans so far. 

Hey @Brian W., sure no problem. @Victor Olowu  no problem. Let's keep it moving until we get it going. For everyone else, I'm still game for this weekend and @Victor Olowu, I have no problem with Sunday either.
