Looking to network

Hi All,

I'm relatively new to the real estate scene and have spent the last year immersing myself in podcasts and books on real estate investing. Now, it's time to put theory into practice. Having relocated to Houston, TX just one year ago, I'm eager to connect with fellow investors and vendors in the area. Are there any authentic real estate meetups where I can network? I attended one recently, but it felt more like a scheme; the initial meeting was free, but subsequent sessions required payment ranging from $200 to $500 for a 3-day course. I suspect they'll push even pricier training, possibly in the range of $30,000. My goal is simple: to engage with genuine individuals, forge connections, and mutually learn from one another. I'm looking forward to connecting with local investors and starting my real estate journey.

Thanks

Oscar M

@Oscar Macakiage, I'm not in Houston, but I imagine there must be a legit real estate investor's meet-up. I would start with a Facebook search and review the group page. If every other post is some off-market deal or course pitch with no real value-added content, that's likely not the one you want to join. Also, you can search for local meet-ups here on BP by clicking the Build Your Team tab at the top of your page. Do not pay $30k for a course if you're starting. Everything you need can be found online or at free local meet-ups. 

Best of luck!
