There seems to be interest in the South Bay amongst folks here on BP (and for good reason, I think it's one of the most exciting sub markets in the LA area). As a native of the area who moved away to the East Coast for along time, and now being back, I'm very excited to see what is happening, and have a chance to be part of it.
I thought it would be cool to organize a meetup for folks who are interested in discussing the market, sharing information, getting to know each other etc. Please correct me if I"m wrong, didn't see any other South Bay groups on BP?
Because I know a lot of folks debate what the South Bay is, as I understand it, we are talking about: Torrance, Palos Verdes (and RPV, Rolling Hills), Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Gardena, Hawthorne, Carson, Lawndale, Lomita, Harbor City, Lenox, and Inglewood. If any of those markets interest you, perhaps this would be a useful get together.
Anyhow, please reply or message me, if this would be something you'd be interested in. Would be great to get together for some coffee, and talk more in an informal setting. I'd love to try to arrange something for late August or September if folks are available. Looking forward to meeting everyone soon!
I'm interested in a meetup! Let me know if you need any help organizing.
Hi @Shiva Bhaskar ,
Thanks for putting this together! I'm brand new to Biggerpockets (been listening to podcasts and browsing through the forums/webinars for a few weeks now) and am interested in getting started in REI. I'll be moving from Santa Monica down to Hermosa Beach next week and would love the chance to start networking with more experienced professionals in the area.
Hi Shiva - I am very much interested.
Very interested in meeting other investors in the South Bay!
I would definitely be interested! Thanks for sharing!
Interested please include me.
FYI - There is also FIBI if you look that up on meet ups.com. The group meets once a month in Manhattan Beach.
Interested as well!
FIBI event in Manhattan event is run by Matt Owens. He's super knowledgeable and super helpful. I would start there.
Yes, count me in. I am probably late but did want to let people know to include me in for any future meetups.
Hi all, was busy/away for a bit (including on an REI trip to Ohio), but will find a venue and organize something very soon!
Anyone actually schedule a meetup? I’d be interested in it. If you guys want we can do a meetup at my office in Torrance.
Hi all, sorry for the delay! I am going to look into a few venues in the South Bay, and see if we can do this in November. If anyone has suggestions, please direct message me.
