Report Event

Clear your schedule for Tues, Sept 10th. This is an absolute must attend event. Josh McCallen will be speaking at the Lehigh Valley Real Estate Hackers meetup this month at the Allentown Brew Works. I've been blessed to have gotten to know Josh over the last 6 months, and I have learned more from him than anyone else I've met in a long time.

Some people rehab houses. Some people rehab apartment buildings. Josh rehabs multi-million dollar resorts. And when I say "rehab" --- I mean everything from business model, construction, culture, crew, sales, passion, technology, etc etc etc.

Josh will take you through his latest project --- Renault Winery. This is a $15M+ project --- that he acquired inside a syndication using the BRRRR strategy. Yes, that's correct, he BRRRR'ed a winery and wedding resort. Unbelievable.

To make this even more sexy, it turns out that Renault was in an opportunity zone, and Josh will go through what that means in real life to operate a project in an opportunity zone. This isn't some boring accountant talking to you about Opportunity Zones or HGTV land that isn't real. This is "hey -- I just saved a LOT of investors a LOT of money from Uncle Sam b/c they invested in Renault, and here's why".

If that wasn't enough, Josh's master plan is essentially to create the next Hilton brand for resort locations (he's humble and won't describe it like that, but trust me that's what he's building). It operates under the title "Viva Me". He will explain the Viva Me principles which everyone can take something from, and how he can manage hundreds of employees in each location and maintain culture and operations.

If you are looking to get into real estate, I can't think of a better person to meet than Josh as he has built all of this from the ground up.
If you already own half of Allentown -- this is an event that will help you turbo-charge your ambitions and goals.
If you have a business partner -- this is a good one to bring that person to.

Parking can be a little tricky at times, so you may want to leave a few min early. There's a big lot to the right of the Brew Works that seems to work ok for parking after 5.

Join the growing community of Lehigh Valley real estate investors in the Real Estate Hackers meetup. This is a free event -- a place to come meet fellow investors and get educated by a wide variety of regional experts in various real estate topics.

630 PM for networking, 7PM for the content.

NOTE --- we will still be at the Allentown Brew Works --- but we will be downstairs in the basement lounge as there was a conflict on the typical 3rd floor. We will have someone out front telling you where to go. The place will be packed, I can't wait to kick off Sept with this event.
