Hello everyone! We will be having our next Cartersville Monthly Meetup on October 17, 2018 at 6:30 PM at the Noble & Main Coffee Shop at 145 W Main St, Cartersville, GA. This meeting is not affiliated with any REIA groups or other. There is no speaker or sales pitch, this is just a networking meetup for investors in the area to come to and meet and discuss with other investors! If you have any questions about the event please feel free to ask!
This meeting is open to all and I hope to see you there!
Thanks Jacob - appreciate your coordinating this!
If there are any Kennesaw, Woodstock, Marietta or Floyd/Bartow/Cobb County investors who are currently investing in Cartersville, Rydal, Euharlee, Adairsville, Taylorsville, Rome, White or Emerson (or thinking about investing in those areas), come join us!

@Jacob Allen Got an email list you can send reminders out? Wouldn't mind attending but looks like I was too late this month.
@Robert Gilstrap I have not put together an email list yet! So far everything has been done through Biggerpockets. However, I can message you through Biggerpockets to remind you of our meetups if you'd like!
@Jacob Allen cool thanks. I live in Cartersville so that would be super convenient. Haven't been to any meetups for investing in quite a while.
Oo this looks really interesting - count me in!
I hope you will all bear with me, I'm completely new to this and in the process of going through forums and watching videos. I look forward to meeting you all. As of right now when I start investing I plan on breaking ground in Rome, GA. This is a lovely little city with what looks like a lot of potential.
That's definitely reassuring. my hope at least for this first meeting is to be a sponge for what you guys have learned. Right now im more or less stabbing in the dark at topics on here trying to figure out what the best path is for me to take. If its an idea presented to me instead it will be easier for me to follow.
How do you want to invest? What type of market are you looking at? I.E. buy-and-hold, fix and flip, etc., as long as you have a general idea of what you want to do it'll give us somewhere to direct the conversation!
I'm pretty much open to suggestion. I grew up flipping houses with my parents, so thats what I'm most familiar with, however, this was 10 years ago and I was a kid. My stepdad taught me how to do the work so DIY projects are not an issue for me, but im certainly no licensed contractor by any means. I never learned much on the actual business side of it so I'm a clean slate in regards to actually buying and selling, or renting. From my research I understand all of the differences between each method and how the profit is made. ultimately i want to do it all, rentals, flips, buy and hold, the whole 9 yards, but right this moment....I just want to get my foot in the door, i've heard wholesale is kind of the best place to start for someone like me.
That's great, can't wait to meet you! Having some exposure like growing up like that is probably a great asset that you could use down the line! I personally don't have any interest in doing wholesaling but I'm sure there are others at the meetup who could discuss with you!
I will be there! Excited to meet some local investors.
Hey all, would have loved to be able to attend this event but unfortunately I have night class. I am looking to meet some people in the area but in the meantime I will just stick to the books!
Are you accepting last minute attendees? I'm trying to work out my schedule so that I can join the meetup but its unclear at the moment.
Best regards, Frank
@Jacob Allen I represent a local property management company and will be there with one of my clients who is just getting started in real estate investments in NW GA. We are looking forward to it!
Hey guys. Last nights meetup was amazing. It was a pleasure to meet each of you that could make it out! I look forward to meeting again soon, and look forward to connecting with each of you further. Have an amazing day, and talk soon!
To everyone that came out last night I have to say my wife and I had a great time. That was our first time attending a meet up and we both left excited about investing locally in our area. I hope everyone enjoyed it. We should definitely continue to meet as I feel we all have some good things to offer each other. Real estate is such a learning experience and it was great to just be able to chat about different strategies, thoughts, and opinions about our local market. Thank you all for your hospitality and we wish you all the best of luck in your investing endeavors.! Please reach out to me if you feel I can offer anything. I would love to help in any way I can.
I really enjoyed the networking opportunity last night and meeting all the new and experienced investors. I loved the casual, conversational atmosphere and information sharing. I definitely see a need for this type of networking going forward!
