Hey Brandon. Welcome to BP! You are definitely in the right place to learn about REI.
I run a meetup (RE Investors of CNY) here in Syracuse the first Tues of every month at 7pm at the Aloft Inner Harbor Syracuse which has a good mix of people and you're welcome to come but a more convenient on for you might be the TriCountyREIA of WNY (www.TriCountyREIA.com) that covers your market area (Ontario, Monroe and Wayne counties) more specifically.
They meet 2nd Tues of each month 6-9pm and their next meeting is this Wed, 6/13. The first meeting is free so I'm going to go to see what their meetings are like and get to know a few people and then decide if it's helpful to me in the long run.
Definitely take advantage of all of the resources here on BP but nothing replaces getting to know your local market and the network you can create that will help you get off the ground.
Best of luck and hope to see you Wed!
Thanks for the information Rob! I’m actually in the Syracuse area two days a week so I’ll be sure to join you at the next meet up!
