Report Event

I just got back from my scouting trip around Ohio and Indiana where I visited other members in Toledo, Cleveland, Dayton, and Indianapolis.  They showed me around your their cities, walked me through projects in all stages, and gave a variety of perspectives on neighborhoods and markets. 

I'm hosting a discussion this Monday 8/18 at 5:30pm at Hooked on Colfax (3213 E Colfax Ave, Denver - downstairs) where I will share what I learned on my trip about investing opportunities in the Midwest.  We will look at actual deals that locals are doing in these cities. If you are interested in investing in these areas and are unable to travel there yourself, please bring your questions. If you invest in these areas, please bring your expertise to share.  This will not be a pitch, it is an opportunity to get together and explore the possibilities, talk about people on the ground who work with out of state investors, and learn from each other.

Many thanks to @Darrin Carey  @Ryan Pyle  @Shawn Holsapple  @Engelo Rumora  @Lee Smith  @Sondra McKibben @Andrew Isaacs @Thomas St John  for sharing their time and knowledge. Apologies to those I missed on this trip, but I will be back!

It was an absolute pleasure Micki.

Thanks for the card also. Its sitting on my desk :)

Have a great day.

I might just make this one... thanks Micki!

Engelo got a card?!? What the heck, I didn't get a card.. I'm going to go cry now!  Oh wait, did Engelo get you to make an offer on a property? I know I did! haha

It was fun Micki, let me know if you have any questions going forward!

@Micki M.  it was a pleasure spending some time with you and showing you around Indianapolis.

I'm looking forward to working with you soon!

Sounds like fun! I'll be there!

@Micki M.  It was great to meet you and show off what's happening here in Dayton.

@Lee Smith  You are the only one who got me to put an offer in on a house AND the only one who scared me off from one (fleas, ugh)! And check your mail before you start whining. :)

How did you skip over Columbus? Thisarket is ripe with an amazing economy. We should have a phone call before your meeting on Colfax.

Let's chat about goals and Midwest investing.

Ps. I lived in Colorado for 10 yrs but grew up in Columbus. Maybe we can barter. Haha.

Steve

@Steve Baldwin  I know, I was planning on hitting Columbus but I got overloaded with info and couldn't visit everywhere at once. I promise to come visit. I'd love to chat... and barter :)

Thanks for putting this together @Micki M.  !  Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to attend but hope to see you at the 8/25 meetup.

@Micki M.  count us in for two - our plans have moved to tomorrow so we are able to attend.  

See you there!

Good luck with your event Micki! Thank you for the card, I did receive it... Thanks for the check for $500 too... I won't tell the other guys you visited that you wrote me a check for being a good guy!! haha

Thanks for organizing this @Micki McNie. I learned a lot last night, very helpful info. 

@Micki M.   I was waiting for you to contact me.  I guess I should have reached out instead.  Hopefully next time we can meet up!

@Ben G.  My apologies, I got overwhelmed with people to meet and didn't have time for everyone.  I'll definitely be back in Indy and will make sure we connect.
