Hello again, KC.

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season.
As it's still chilly outside, the midwest is in its real estate "off season" aka it's a ripe time to grab up anything sellers really need to get rid of.
It's not always the case, but there is some truth to the idea that some sellers are only off loading in this season if they have to.
That can often translate into a situation where investors can work out a "win win" with sellers.
Sellers tend to need the property off their hands for some compelling reason or another, and investors stand to grab a great deal while the demand is lower.

Again, I'm not talking about any kind of specific investing science or detailed statistics, just some things to keep in mind during this season.

So enough about that...let's get to the information on January's meeting!

In an effort to start 2018 off on the right foot, let's hang out and casually discuss real estate.
Whether you're going to finally pull the trigger on your first investment, or are committed to growing your existing portfolio, let 2018 be your year to take action on those goals!

Come join some of your fellow Kansas Citians for a lively discussion on Kansas City SFH/Multi-Family, made even more enjoyable with some drinks and a swanky Westport office added into the mix.
With a "the more the merrier" approach, anyone who is interested in casually discussing KC real estate is welcome to join.
There's no pressure, angle, or agenda. Simply hanging out and talking REI.
Those just getting interested, to those with years under their belt, and all the in-between are welcome.
We'll be there 7PM to 9PM

Also here are a couple of motivating quotes for the new year!
One more brash, another a little less.

“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the ******** story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it.”

― Jordan Belfort

“Without action, the best intentions in the world are nothing more than that: intentions.”

― Jordan Belfort, The Wolf of Wall Street

I second John. I'm flying in this afternoon (Denver to KC) and I am still hoping to make it if the meetup is on! 

Keep us posted, please! 

Hey, Team.
So our host space has unfortunately had to cancel due to the impending weather.
Call it the stubborn Midwesterner in me, but I am opting to move the meeting to an alternate conducive space in Westport (McCoy's? open to suggestions)
PENDING...the weather doesn't truly get too bad.
Obviously use your own judgement, only travel if you feel safe doing so. 
We can always reschedule for another time in January.

I will post an official decision by 5:00 PM CST

Best,
-Quinten

Hey all. If the roads are better by this eve, I plan on heading out there. It's a nice 40 minute drive from my house so hopefully the ro-Ads are safe and secure by then. Hope to finally get to meet all of you tonight!

My partner and I are open to still meeting if you are still planning on it. Would love to connect with everyone if possible!

I'm open if people are still interested!

I'm still up for it, sounds like we are planning on McCoy's now, is that right?

Alright...based on the feedback I've received from various channels...
We are officially still on! Find us at:
McCoy's in Westport
4057 Pennsylvania Ave, Kansas City, MO 64111

Starting around 7 pm
I'll let the host know about the group so they can direct anyone to us as they arrive.
Call/text me if needed 314-808-0973 <----assuming BP content filtering doesn't block this
(if they do, just message me via BP)

Be safe! See you there!
-Q

Unfortunately, I think the weather is going to keep me from this one. I'll make the next one!

The weather's going to keep me home too, but I'm definitely in for the next one!

I just came back from happy hour with the wife and the roads are getting pretty slick, especially with the temperatures falling. Be safe!

I will have to skip this one due to weather conditions. Keep me posted and I will be on the lookout for the next event!

Heading out now from Raytown.
If you all find each other, start up the conversation. I'll see you when I get there.

Thanks to all for a phenomenal time and turnout!
I hope everyone walked away having learned something, made a valuable connection, and gained inspiration/motivation for the coming year.

I've posted a brief related note to my BP blog.
Check it out here: https://www.biggerpockets.com/blogs/9877/69675-mon...

Keep an eye out for an event post about February's meeting!
...and for the January meeting follow-up email.

(for February, I'll try to find an appropriate place for a related forum post, as well, so those with keyword alerts for Kansas City get an alert about the event.)


As always, if I can do anything for you, find me here on BP.

 Good job, Quinten! The event was a great success. Looking forward to the next one!

Hey, All.

I'll include this information in next month's meeting invite, but wanted to drop a line in this thread, as well.
@John Wires took the time to set us all up with a dedicated Facebook group.
John and myself are admins.
