I'm just starting out and would like to build a network of like-minded people in the REI path. I'm unaware of any current BP Dallas meet-ups, but I think a monthly meeting like this could benefit everyone in REI. It could be a Happy Hour on a Friday afternoon in a casual environment like Katy Trail Ice House Outpost in Plano where they have lots of tables and space to get a drink, gather, meet and talk real estate. Open to suggestions!
DFW area must be the REI meetup capitol of the world. Lots and lots of meetups here in the area. If you get a regular group, let me know and I'll add it to the list.
Please note I am not affiliated in any way with any of the groups other than that I have attended some of their meetings/presentations.
NTAREI- https://ntarei.com/ Normally meets about 2x a month in North Dallas at the Holiday Inn at Preston and LBJ NE corner. Some vendors present. Probably 20-120 in attendance depending on the topic. Meeting is normally on Thursday nights, occasionally on Tuesdays, and some full day Saturday seminars. Organizer is Roger.
Texas Tuesday DFW Real Estate Mastermind- https://ttdfwrem.com/ First Tuesday of the month is Lewisville/Carrollton area. Starts at 7pm. Venture X Lewisville - The Realm at Castle Hills. Great energy with this group. Tends to attract a younger /trendy crowd.
