I have not but @Thomas Yip and I have tried to get a few people from BP together for some meet ups and there has been interest. I would be happy to meet you there if you have the time and place and if nothing else we can chat!
@Aaron Ingram Hey man...in my bio is my cell phone number. Give me a call I’d love to link up.
I'd be interested to hear about these, too. If you end up going, please add some feedback!
JaxREIA is official and does regulary meet and they have classes. You can go to two classes for free. After that, there is a membership fee that is worth it for the networking, education, and multiple events held throughout the year. Do a quick search for JaxREIA and check out the website.
As mentioned by Tony JaxREIA has a training program that is very good for new investors that meets every Tuesday Night @ 7 with 25-30 attending. They also have at least 2 other events every week.
REIF - Jacksonville has good monthly meeting with data/trends for more experienced investors. They also have monthly get togethers in Saint Augustine for breakfast and another for lunch at Whiteys Fish Camp in Orange Park. These have a good format of open discussion with everyone in attendance. Everyone has a chance to bring up their issue with feedback from the group. Listen and learn from others' issues.
REIM - Has good monthly meetings with relevant topics. Also has a very good email thread/discussion group via meetup.
I would suggest that you try them all as each has different groups to network.
You can go to meetup.com to signup for email notifications from each of these.
While not a paying member, I've been to 2 of their meetings/events over the last couple of years and both were well attended and informative.
Have you guys had a chance to go to a meeting yet since you posted? If so what were your thoughts? Thanks
I haven't been to a main JAXREI meeting, so I can't speak to that. I have gone to one of their local meetups for westside landlords. There were around 12-15 people there, almost all regulars. It was a good networking opportunity and they were nice and willing to talk to the new guy. Unfortunately, for me, they changed it to a day that conflicted with my work schedule so I haven't made it back.
