Hi! My name is Jacob Allen, I'm a new (or rather, hopeful) investor trying to get involved in real estate. I'm looking to get my feet wet and get some experience before jumping all in!
Does anyone know of any meet up groups in the Bartow County or Cherokee County areas? I'm looking specifically to invest in the Cartersville and Canton areas. If a group does not exist, any group that is in the North Atlanta Metropolitan area would be appreciated!
Looking to do the same thing. I live in Cobb County near Cherokee county. Let me know if you find anything.
Hello @Jacob Allen ,
I used to host a monthly meet-up/mastermind on the NE side of Atlanta. I am in the process of setting that meeting back up and will probably host in North Fulton, Johns Creek/Alpharetta area.
I live on the Cobb / Cherokee line, and I work over in Roswell, so anything in either (both!) the Cobb or N. Fulton area would be fantastic.
@Jeremy Frank - I feel your pain with that commute. At least we get a couple of months to enjoy lighter traffic before school starts back up!
Does anyone know of any meet-ups in Cherokee County, or would anyone be interested in starting one?
Hi @Micah Redden , please add me to your meetup group as well. Thanks!
@Jacob Allen I live in south Cherokee County and would be interested in a meetup in the area. I used to go to one 10+ years ago that was hosted in Adairsville, I believe, but has since been disbanded.
So it seems like there is some interest and since there is no currently organized one in the area, I think I'm going to start a meetup that will meetup in Cartersville, GA. If interested please PM me, if there is not enough interest then I'll cancel, but I'm going to shoot for the first meeting to be Wednesday, July 11th!
Please invite me
I live in Cartersville and would love to meet up with some like minded folks
@Jerry Chatman got it, you're on the list!
Count me in @Jacob Allen ! It might be helpful to create an event on Meetup.com also. Thanks for organizing!
@Julie Kern Got it! You're on the list!
@Jacob Allen appreciate you organizing a get-together, but unfortunately I work out in Roswell, and leaving work @ 6:30 or so would make Cartersville a very late (at best) arrival for me. I hope you get enough others on board!
James, wish you the best sorry you cant make it! But we certainly wouldn't be opposed to you showing up later!
Y'all, just wanted to follow up:
There definitely seems to be enough interest to have a meetup. I'm looking at having the meetup in one of the local coffee shops there in downtown Cartersville, and I'm shooting for Wednesday, July 11th at 7:00. I'll keep you updated and continue to reach out for more attendees!
Thanks @Jacob Allen I'll certainly see what time I get out of work (and how traffic is looking) on Wednesday 7/11. Of course, if I'd be rolling in 1 1/2 hours after the 7PM start time, it may not make sense. I do appreciate it, and if nothing else, it's awesome to see your initiative to get something going!
Please send me an invite @Jacob Allen
I came across a post on Nextdoor the other day, where The Georgian Lakeside assisted living community (1070 Hardscrabble Rd, Roswell, 30075) offered free meeting space. Their capacity is 50-60 people. They are saying it is a hotel-like meeting space and the place overall has "an upscale, hotel-boutique atmosphere". In case anyone thinks this would be a good location...
Good morning everyone! It appears we have about 6 or 7 people interested in the meetup. So I'm proposing we meet at the Noble & Main Coffee Shop in Cartersville GA this Wednesday.
Who: Anyone interested
What: REI Meetup
When: July 11th, at 7:00 pm
Where: Noble & Main Coffee Co., 145 West Main St, Cartersville, GA 30120
A couple of notes: This meetup is not affiliated with any groups, my intent is simply to enable this as a monthly networking event for the Bartow/Cherokee County areas. As this is the first meet up there's currently no agenda, it's just simply meant to evaluate interest of members in the area and network. If it shows that there is significant interest we can look at getting a larger meetup location or a more formal meeting structure. But for now, this is just a monthly networking event.
Awesome, @Jacob Allen . Looking forward to it!
Great! Looking forward to the meet up.
