Has anyone had success setting up a non-REIA meet-up?
I'm thinking about scheduling a small meet-up at Craft Street in Oldsmar, FL to discuss REI in the greater Tampa Bay Area. My goal is to grab some beers, meet new likeminded people and begin building a network that benefits all involved.
I can add value by discussing my personal investing strategy, offer up insurance advice and recommend proven subcontractors in Tampa Bay.
While this post may get crickets, if there’s interest I’ll definitely set something up. If not, that’s okay too.
Either way, glad to be here.
Sending you a PM!
I would be interested in this, as would my 3 other partners :)
Sure, sounds good.
Sounds like a good idea. I'm in Lakeland, only an hour away. When are you thinking about setting something up?
I'd be interested in a meetup. I'm nearby in the Carrollwood Area. Hope we can set something up!
@Shannon Ludlow Day after my birthday, might be out of town but I'll see what I can do!!
Shannon, I have another meeting set up that night. If you schedule another please keep me informed.
@Matthew Linton will do bud
@Eva Machicado did you see my Meet-Up specifics before the forum admin deleted my post? If not I can PM you if you’re still interested.
@Joseph Ferrante no worries Joseph.
@Brigitte Via did you see my Meet-Up specifics before the forum admin deleted my post? If not I can PM you if you’re still interested.
@Shannon Ludlow I did! 8/1, 6:30, Craft St Kitchen?
@Shannon Ludlow hi Shannon, I only briefly saw the details before they got deleted. Yes, send them to me via PM please.
@Brigitte Via yep, hope you can make it.
@Eva Machicado just sent you a pm
Brand new to biggerpockets, been running 2 rentals for 8 years, working to prep for a 3rd. I can't make this meetup, but would be happy to get to know you and maybe get to next one.
Good afternoon! I am interested in attending your REI meeting. What is the date and time for the meeting? I believe I saw 6:30pm on 8/1 at Craft St.
Will try to attend as well; Great restaurant and excellent bourbon selection!
@Shannon Ludlow will see everyone Thursday!
The link below will aid in our discussions as I’m sure it’s on everyone’s mind.
@Shannon Ludlow if you plan on coming it’s very crowded inside so headed out back in covered patio area at the end of the bar. I am wearing a white button up shirt and dark jeans.
@Shannon Ludlow Thank you to everyone who made it last night for our first meet-up. Below is a quick rundown of how it went for those that wanted to come but could not attend.
Attendees: Previous Buy & Hold Investor, Entrepreneur/CEO, Engineer and an Insurance Professional.
Our meet-up was full of knowledge sharing, laughs, wine and cold beer. We discussed different REI strategies, wholesale deals, syndications, note investing, debated SFR vs. multi-family, raising capital (i.e. hard money, private, etc.) and reliable local contractors.
More importantly, we all took action and showed-up. Those who attended are now starting to build a REAL local network that will mutually benefit them either through partnerships, education or motivation.
If you are interested in joining us for the next meet-up, we created a closed FB group called Tampa Bay REI Growthstermind.
Ahh just saw the recent post after the meetup or I would have joined myself as well!
