Report Event

Time: Thursday, January 24, 2019; Meeting starts at 6:00PM

1.) Purpose: The purpose of this meeting is for us investors (both newbie and experienced,) to come together to share our experiences with real estate, what brought us into the real estate world, what active steps are being taken to pursue our goals, and what drives us to keep pushing forward to accomplish our goals and reach our potential as investors! Through this meeting lies the potential to make some awesome new friends, gain some great insight from one another in areas where we may have been lacking, and motivate one another through our own personal experiences, ambition, and stories to achieve our goals of financial freedom/overall success!

2.) Requirements:

 -Book Exchange: This is my only prerequisite requirement to attend this meeting. Everyone must bring with them at least one book they would recommend/have read, and give us a run down on what it’s about and how it helped them move forward in their real estate career/pursuits and how it can help others. Whether we have done only 1 deal or 100 deals, books have the potential to bring tons of value to all of us and help our business/mindset in a high variety of ways!

3.) Cost:

      None! Totally Free!

4.) Location:

     Bergen Community College: Student Center

    400 Paramus Road, Paramus, NJ 07652

-Inside the student center and directly to the right when you walk inside, there will be numerous tables, a Dunkin Donuts and a pizza center. This is the area where we will post up.

-Just a heads up, the Dunkin closes at 6PM but the pizza place will be open until 8PM! Feel free to bring your own food/snacks and/or coffee to the meeting as well. There are vending machines throughout the campus grounds should you need to get yourself a snack/beverage when you arrive as well.

Here is a link of the campus map that can be used to find the student center should you not be familiar with the campus.

Can't tell you how stoked I am to meet you all! Looking forward to talk shop with everyone and help build the fire in others as well as keep my own burning strong! 

See you all soon.

Good Morning @Justin Beides

Is it okay to come this meetup although I do not have any deals under my belt. I am interested in house hacking, Buy and Hold Rentals utilizing the BRRRR strategy, . Although I am not close to locking in a deal, I have spent plenty of time reading, listening to podcast (and have listened to episode #210 btw @Sunny Burns super inspiring, listened to it with my wife and was the first podcast she actually was locked into.) and listened to multiple audiobooks and hope that I can provide value in anyway. 

Thank you

@Andrew G Martinez glad it could inspire you two. I’ll see you at the meetup. I think my Wife plans on coming as well. 

@Ray Schumacher and @Andrew G Martinez you both are more than welcome to join! Oh and also good afternoon to you as well @Andrew G Martinez  and that's more than fine. Everyone coming is going to vary in levels of experience with real estate. My only pre-requisite is to bring a book for exchange to discuss with the group. If you've been listening to various audiobooks yourself, then you should be all set to pick at least one from your selection to discuss. @Sunny Burns sounds good. All are welcome. Looking forward to meeting all of you there!

Very excited to attend and meet everyone in person..

My wife and I will be there. Looking forward to meeting and networking with everyone!

@Fred Gonzalo Nice to meet you man! Yes. Anyone can come to this meetup. You and your friend are more than welcome. The only pre-requisite is you bring a book to the meetup that you've read that has helped to bring you along in helping to achieve your real estate goals in some way or another. Looking forward to seeing you both there. 

Hey @Sunny Burns thanks for posting on your FB group.  Derek & I are hoping to attend!  Looking forward.

Hey everyone! Quick announcement: 

First off: I am beyond stoked that so many people are coming to attend this meet up and looking forward to seeing you all next week! 

With all of that said, due to the increasing turn-out of the upcoming event, the location has changed to accommodate all who are potentially coming next week. We are no longer meeting at the Bergen County Community College. We are now meeting at the following location: 

Renaissance Meadowlands Hotel

801 Rutherford Avenue

Rutherford, NJ 07070

I posted the update above but wanted to make it a comment here so that nobody misses the change in location. 

In the hotel, the meetup will be located in what they call their "Ballroom" and the name of the event is the "Bergen County REIA Meetup"

Date: Thursday, January 24th and Time: 6:00 PM are still the same. 

See you all next week!
