Wilkes Barre Scranton REIA meet up

5 Replies

I've done a little poking around and I am unable to find any REIA group in North east PA.

If I'm missing one please let me know.

If not and you are interested in forming one please join me comment to this thread.

I'm thinking Wednesday October 9th,2019. 7pm meeting at the Cracker Barrel in Wilkes Barre.

this would be for anyone looking to network and meet others, from beginners to experienced Investors.

Strictly no selling at the meet up.




There are 2 active groups that I belong to in Luzerne County. The NEPA Real Estate Investors Network meets monthly at the Perkins restaurant in Pittston. There is no charge for this group. This group is more investor oriented. We have folks that come from as far away as Williamsport and New Jersey, but a majority of the members are from the greater Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area. We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month. Meetings run from 7 to 9 or so. There is usually a guest speaker, or a member of the group will speak about a real estate investing topic. After the speaker, we have networking time, to get to know what each other is doing, and discuss deals, etc. The next investors network meeting is set for Wednesday October 9, 2019.

There is also the WVREIA (Wyoming Valley Real Estate Investors Association). This group meets on the last Tuesday of most months (there are no meetings in July, August, or December). This group was more landlord oriented, but we are in the process of recreating ourselves to become more balanced between landlording and real estate investing in general. There is a nominal yearly fee for this group (I believe it's 55 dollars), which is used to cover soft drinks, a sandwich tray, and renting of meeting space. This group meets in the Dolphin Plaza on Rt 315 in Wilkes Barre (between the casino and the Woodlands). Again, this group tries to have guest speakers. In the past we have had an insurance agent, a magistrate, insurance adjuster, flooring store owner, and many others guest speakers. The next WVREIA meeting is set for Tuesday September 24, meeting starts at 7.  The speaker will be a local investor, Joshua Ax, who is killing it in the local real estate investing market.  He is speaking at each of the next 3  meetings about getting started in the industry.  There is no charge for this month's meeting as we are hopeful that any/all new attendees find Josh's insights into our market interesting and may want to consider joining our group to hear the 2nd and 3rd parts of Josh's presentation at the October and November meetings.


Bob thanks very much for the reply. 

pretty sure I know the dolphin plaza. Where in the plaza do you meet? And about what time is the meeting over?
