MNREIA has a lot of good ones and the first ones are free.
I also run a monthly rental rehab meet up. Message me if you want more info.
I’d like to meet up, if that’s possible. I’ve been looking to connect with local investors.
It partly depends on what kind of investors you want to hang out with...newbies, intermediate or experts? And it matters what kind of deals you are interested in doing.
Some of the better ones are: MNREIA and TWINREIA -both great for a sweeping mix of experienced and newbie investors and a variety of topics, however MNREIA is huge with national speakers, while TWINREIA is a small but usually excellent discussion group. MNREIA also has specialty groups, which are my favorite parts of MNREIA. Pine Financial events usually have a good speaker and great networking, and their soft sell is palatable. MREE is one I plan to start attending, as I move more into apartment syndication. It appears to have more commercial and professional members, with lots of brokers I hear.
Here are links to the above:
BP has a bi-monthly meetup that seems good, but meets too infrequently to gel IMHO. There are also a handful of meetup.com groups, but most of those seem to me to suffer various problems. Some have leaders who either soft- or hard-sells their services, others have inconsistent meeting times and still others are simply uninspiring.
Finally, my own plug is I've been running my own mastermind group with such great success I had to take a brief hiatus so that several of us can go buy an apartment or several together. I'm going to re-launch another mastermind group again soon, so if you're interested, please pm me. I'm calling it ActionREIA because it's all about taking action and learning by doing.
But alas, the problem with this post is that my experiences are merely just my own. You really ought to go out there and try everything that appeals and arrive at your own favorites.
