I schedule a lot of meetups, and love to meet with other investors when I travel! I will be at Pepperdine University in Malibu from the afternoon of Sunday, 5/11/14, through the night of Thursday, 5/15/14. I wanted to see who down in Southern California would be up for a fun networking event with other real estate investors, picturesque views of the coastline in Malibu, while sipping on a delicious spirite or brew.. I have a couple spots in mind.. If you're interested, please let me know what evenings would work for you (or Sunday afternoon?)

I own and manage a growing number of units in the East Bay of the SF Bay Area, and got in contract on another 4plex yesterday! I host the monthly East Bay Meetup, and am hosting a meetup in San Francisco next week, with @Joshua Dorkin and @Brandon Turner as our special guests, if anyone is interested in an excuse to head up to the Bay next week.

Looking forward to meeting some of you there!

Tagging some local(ish) cities to see who might be interested..
Los Angeles, LA, Hollywood, Long Beach, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Ventura, Ojai, Santa Barbara, Lompoc, Woodland Hills, Topanga, Santa Monica, Oxnard, Camarillo, Port Hueneme, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, Newbury Park, Calabasas, Culver City, Inglewood, Marina Del Ray, Redondo Beach, Canoga Park, Van Nuys, Encino, Northridge.

Come out to the "Bu" and meet with your fellow investors and BP members!

@J. Martin Great idea... 5/11 evening works, count me in. Where you thinking?

@J. Martin

What a beautiful campus and a great place to have a Meetup! My fiancé went there for undergrad and loved it. I might be out that way the week of the 12th. If I come in early I will definitely attend. Thanks J!

It sounds great! I'm in. When I used to live down that ways, I used to head to Pepperdine every Sunday morning...beautiful drive and beautiful campus. Friday nigh or Saturday night work best for me.

@Mark Mynhier ,

Pepperdine is definitely a beautiful campus, both itself, and the stunning views from the top - along with the surrounding scenic coastline. Unfortunately, I don't think I will be down there on a Friday or Saturday night. Just Sunday 5/11 through Thursday 5/14 (can do Thurs night also).

@Peter K. , are you flexible to do it later in the week, if @Chris Winterhalter is coming on Monday? Not sure how different the traffic is on the weekdays going to Malibu.. I'm flexible though.

I was thinking about Dukes Malibu, because it has outdoor seating RIGHT on the ocean, reasonably priced, and a little closer to Santa Monica, which I thought would be easier for some. The food is nothing special though, so I'd be open to something else. Just haven't been many places down there.. If you have any suggestions, I'm open. Would prefer an affordable restaurant ($,$$) on the ocean, especially with outdoor seating.. If they have great food, big +

please tag or email any local investors you know who might want to come out also.. I usually have 30-50 people at my meetups in the East Bay where I'm better connected, but I don't know many people down in that area.. (and not expecting that many people to go out to Malibu anyway..).

I know of a few people who would probably enjoy coming. I've introduced them to BP recently to try and spread the love...


@J. Martin Thanks for organizing...

@Emerson Miranda @Peggy Liu might be interested in this as well.

Duke's is a great location and isn't too far from the westside. The commute on a weekday could be a bit rough, but a weekend evening might be easier for most people. Just my take...

Thanks for the tag Account Closed !

Weeknights definitely don't work for me. A weekend night is much more do-able due to my graveyard schedule. Sounds like fun :)

It sounds like the evening of Sunday, 5/11/14 might be best then. @Mehran K. , can you make it out then? I chatted with you a few times online, but would be great to meet up in person. I think you know a few people down there also.. Please tag whoever you think may be interested, and can you also tag @Ali Boone for me. I can't believe I've never sent a colleague request to her after seeing her on the forums all the time.

@Mark Mynhier , does Sunday, 5/11/14 evening work for you? Please tag whoever you think might be interested also.

Account Closed , 5/11/14 evening OK for you?

@Chris Winterhalter, it sounds like your schedule's a little soft right now, but let me know when you find out if you can make it.

I'll buy a beer for whoever gets the most people to come out and chat in Malibu.. but it sells itself!

Yes, 5/11 works, too. Thanks. I'll ask them to pop into the discussion if they want to go.

Thanks Mark. I'll count you in, and make sure we can get enough people on that date. I'll tag everyone when the date and location is finalized.

I know @K.

Kristine Marie Poe undefined isn't that close to Malibu, but I missed you last time you were in the Bay when my handyman did that painting job for you, and thought you might be looking for an excuse to drive down the 1, and enjoy a day in Malibu..

I prefer Malibu over going into LA. I'm flexible that week. I'll definitely try to make it. Sounds like fun!

Account Closed Thanks for the tag!

I'd be up for it.. Sunday evening would be best. Trying to get to Malibu after work on a weekday would be tough.

It sound like Sunday is really best due to traffic then.. How does about 4-7ish sound? That should give everyone time to do stuff in the morning/afternoon with family, and a little extra time to drive home..

Again, please tag or bring a friend.
Looking forward to it!

@J. Martin

Thanks for coordinating this! I love Duke's and love the view. I'm not 100% sure but should know within a week so depending on my flight schedule.

Remember it's Mother's Day. So maybe all of us non-mothers should pick up the tab for the real estate mothers???

@J Martin Yup! Count me in

Would have loved to attend, but will be out of town for Mother's Day. Sat night could work though. Have fun!

Sundays work best for me but I didn't realize that the 11th was Mother's Day. I'll have to check on a few things before I can confirm. I wonder if there will be enough space for us with all the people going out for the Holiday.

Mother's day will be tough. It sounds fun though so we will try to make it. It's always great to network with other investors!

Count me in! Thanks for organizing this - looking forward to it!

@J. Martin Just checking on the Mother's Day thing as well, will confirm as soon as I can, thanks!

@Peggy Liu , glad you can make it out!

@Mehran K. , @K.

Kristine Marie Poe undefined, let me know when you figure it out!

Sorry everyone! Didn't realize it was Mother's day when I first scheduled this. Don't let it interrupt your family life, if that's the case. I have to be in Malibu on Sunday either way, so happy to see whoever can come out! I'll update this and check in with everyone when we get closer.

Sorry @J. Martin , won't be able to make it out to this one. The fam has plans around those times.
