I am tossing around the idea of starting a real estate investment group / meet up in my area. I am trying to gauge interest and get tips on how to go about doing this. Has anyone else started their own local real estate investment club and can you provide any advice/tips?
Also if anyone in my area is interested either in helping get this started or being a part of this please let me know!
Have you considered attending your local REIA meetings? Almost all areas have REIA and you can find some of them in your area here:
@Ehsan Rishat we do not have one that I am aware of in Saint Joseph. I have attended one in KC but thought Saint Joseph could benefit from having their own.
Hey Tiffany, I'd be happy to spearhead this with you. Let me know when we could do coffee or something!
@Tiffany Smith count me in. My partner would probably be in as well.
@Ryan Proffit awesome! It may be after the first of the year but I think it would be awesome if we could get some traction on this!
@Brandon King that would be great! Thanks!
@Tiffany Smith I am looking to invest in Saint Joseph from San Francisco. I would love to join if you did start a group and happen to be doing virtual meetings right now! I would also love to connect if you are open to it.
Hi @Lindsay Zane! We have a Facebook group and were just getting started pre corona virus. I am looking to have another meeting soon. Not sure if it is going to be virtual or in person but if you would like to join the group let me know. It’s under St. Joseph Real Estate Investing Meetup on Facebook.
@Tiffany Smith Thank you so much!
Hi, @Tiffany Smith . I am in the Kansas City area, but I am looking to invest in St. Joseph as well. That’s my next move. Would love to participate in some way if even via zoom. Let me know. :)
Hello Olga, that’s great that you are wanting to invest in St. Joseph! I am happy to add you to our group on Facebook. Unfortunately since COVID hit we haven’t been meeting but it is a great place to connect with other investors, agents, etc.. Also it’s a great resource for people to get info on contractors or ask any questions you may have! I am happy to add you if you are interested. Just let me know!
Did you give it a go are you meeting in St Joe?
@Tiffany Smith Yes please!
Tiffany, could you please add me to your Facebook group. Trying to work my way into the real estate world and would like to connect with some other investors in the area.
Absolutely! We were just getting started when COVID came and kind of put it on hold but I am looking forward to meeting again! Please feel free to post questions, info, etc!
There are all different kinds of people in the group from investors to wholesalers to loan officers so I hope you will find it beneficial! Also check out the book recommendations, they are truly life changing. If you don’t like to read (like me) audible is fantastic!
@Kim Tucker yes I did! Sorry for the delayed response. We have a good amount of people on Facebook. I am trying to keep the momentum going through Zoom meetings! The Facebook group itself has been a good resource.
Hello! Are any of you interested in a virtual zoom?
Would like to discuss St. Joseph.
Hi Olga! We have a real estate meetup in Saint Joseph and we have been trying to have virtual meetings monthly. The group is called Saint Joseph Real Estate Investing Meetup on Facebook and I would be happy to add you!
I think I’m in the group I just didn’t know you guys were meeting. I wonder how I can get notifications from the group. I’ll look into it so I stay on top of things. Thank you!
This is great! I'm in KC but about to buy my first BRRR in St Joseph, MO. I'm going to join the FB group but would like to join the meet ups in person too if they get going again. Thank you!
@Tiffanysmith could you post a link to the meet up or FB group?
Absolutely! Here you go:
