Hey everybody, new to REI and going to take the plunge next year after closing on a new primary residence. Will have about 50-60k to invest and would love to connect with other investors. Was wondering if any REI meetups are still happening in the Chicagoland area with Covid being a big factor these days. I plan on being a more passive investor using the buy and hold strategy due to my W-2 taking up the majority of my time. I'm never opposed to different options and opportunities, so that's why I would love to be able to be apart of any meetups or masterminds that are currently happening. Thanks and look forward to reading any and all responses.
@Paul De Luca awesome. I’ll look more into it, thanks.
@Tim Sipowicz - there are many meetups and FB groups. I can PM you the links to those that I'm a part of including WIndy City REI.
@Aaron Zimmerman yes, please do. Thanks!
@Aaron Zimmerman I would be interested to some REI meetups as well. I am also a new investor/real estate agent with a construction background.
I would like to know as well about REI meetups in the Chicago area as well.
@lumi ispas teaches seminars with extreme value for investors. She is teaching one tomorrow:
Hey Aaron. Do you have any you can refer me to as well?
@Paul De Luca thanks for the mention. @Tim Sipowicz we are still actively doing meetups right now, although we have been virtual on Zoom due to the pandemic. I am hoping we can be back in person soon. You can find us here on BP or on meetup.com. Most of the attendees are active on the west side of the city and in near suburbs.
