Real Estate Meet Up in Des Moines

25 Replies

It looks like there used to be real estate meet up in Des Moines, IA at Caribou coffee, is this still going on? If not is anyone interested in starting a new one? I am brand new on here, just looking to get into real estate. 

Hey Ben, 

Welcome! That meet up is still going on and we have another meetup on the 20th. Last month the group met in a different location and I'm not sure if that will be the same spot this month or we will go back to the coffee shop. I'll find out and reply back when I have an answer. 

Hey @Ben C.

That one is still going on.  We are starting a new meetup as well.  First meeting is next Thursday at the Des Moines Social Club, 6-9pm.  Brad Neal, a property manager with Renter's Warehouse will be speaking!

Ok perfect thanks Chase and Terry for your help look forward to seeing you guys there!

I drank coffee by myself last month -- LOL.

I missed the memo on change of location!

If there are subsequent events where would be the best place to find and track those events?  I was unable to make it last night, and see this event didn't make it on the Social Club Calendar of events.

@Terry Mclain did you find out the location of tomorrow night's meetup?

@Ryan Renze
Yes I did. Sorry for the delay. We have been searching for a new spot that would better accommodate the meeting but for this month we will be going back to Ingersoll Tap. See below for the location info. I will bring along a sign that says Bigger Pockets Meet Up and place it at our table/area.

Where:
Ingersoll Tap
2837 Ingersoll Ave
Des Moines, IA 50312

When:
Thursday, March 16th, 2016
Round about 6:00

I will work on getting this reoccurring meeting added to the forums in a more convenient location so everyone can easily locate the meet up time and place.

@Terry Mclain Please shoot me a message with the details for the next meeting. I have night class and cannot make it this time around. 

Will do. How long does your class go till? 

Hello @Terry Mclain ,

How often is this meetup? Every two week or every month?

Thanks in advance,

Cooper.

Here is a link to tomorrows meet up. Hope to see everyone there.

Hey guys! Is this thread still active and/or are the meetings still taking place? Looking to attend in order to get plugged into the DSM scene and learn more about REI. Thanks!

Hi Evan, I'm interested in attending a meetup soon, but I'll be out of town for June (assuming it's the same time/place). Would love to hear what the plan is for July.

Hi Terry, Is this meeting still going on every third Thursday? If so, I'd be very interested in joining. I went to the link listed above and the last meeting it had was for June.

Thanks!

@Andrew Bredholt
Yes, this meet up is still happening. The next one will be this upcoming Thursday at the same location as last months.

Hey are these real estate meet ups still going on ? 

Yes, you can go to the BP Events page and search Des Moines IA and you'll see the DSM Real Estate Investing Meetup or check out meetup dot com. You'll find the event there as well.

When's the next one?  Seems like I missed the last one. Just joined this forum.

It's the third Thursday of every month @ 6pm at Ingersoll Tap in Des Moines. I went for the first time last month. I'd estimate there was 25 people there, maybe more.  Just inside the entrance at the high top tables. People meandered in about 6:15 pm. There is also a FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) meet up the first Wednesday of the month (THAT'S TODAY!) at 6 pm at the Starbar in Des Moines at 6 pm. I believe tonight is the very first meeting for that.

Thank you, Anthony. Third Thursday of this month would render it the 21st ... unfortunately I am out of town for a extended climbing trip that week. Will try to make the next one happen. Can't do FIRE tonight either as negotiating face-to-face with a private seller for a Drake rental property. - BH
