Question for all my Chicagoans. Are there existing networking events that you're plugged into and enjoy? Looking for recommendations on the best groups to join for networking and getting involved in the local community. I see there's quite a few groups in existence already, but is there one that stands out to you? If not, any thoughts of starting up a new one? Let me know what you think.
@Stephen Garmon - we’ve accumulated a list of some of our favorite ones in Chicago. DM me and I’ll share the link that has bout 8 of them (I don’t believe I’m allowed to share the link directly in the forum).
@Stephen Garmon there are a ton of good meetup groups, and I would mostly focus on going to one close to where you live. I help run one in Forest Park here in the western suburbs, and I also attend a local land lording group in Berwyn. I have received an incredible amount of value through these groups. I have also attended many great meetups in other parts of Chicago and even Indiana, but I found that being local made these groups much more impactful for me.
@John Warren can you let me know when your next one is scheduled?
Yes. There a couple quality meet-ups. PM me if you'd like me to send to you some links to a couple FB groups. I don't believe we're allowed to post on the forums.
@Tom Shallcross Do you mind sending them to me as well?
Hi Stephen, I host one here in the south loop. DM me if you interested in joining our next one coming up. Look forward to hearing from you
Where are you located in the city?
I’m about to retire and am going to start investing a bit more. I would like to attend meet ups to expand my investing knowledge and network with other investors. Please send me any links where I can look into meet up groups. Thanks in advance and hope to meet you all soon.
@Alfonso Castillo here is a cash flow game at the end of the month with investors. Let me know if you have any questions.
I’m interested as well.

@Tom Shallcross - I'm new to the real estate game and interested in local meetups. Can you send me the list you mentioned as well please?
No problem, sent to all who requested.
Lurking this post a bit late. Also new to area and would love to have some meetups sent my way!
@Jonathan Klemm thanks for the info And invite. I can’t make this Saturday but would like to plan for another time. I will check out the meetup info.
