National REIA Cruise was a hit! - 02/27/09 06:45 PM
Now that I've finally attended the annual convention of the National Real Estate Investors Association (NaREIA), I'm thrilled to say that not only is this a well run organization, the content and benefits that accrue from membership are awesome! For a full week, from Feb 7-14, we were exposed to some of the best speakers in the country, and we had a chance to mix an mingle with like minded peers, while we ate and/or drank ourselves silly. Fortunately for me, I spent a lot more time in the bow on the 11th deck in the gym than I did at (1 comments)
Cruising with National REIA - Education and networking at it's finest! - 02/22/09 09:45 PM
The 12th annual National REIA convention just concluded. Held February 7-14, starting the first weekend in February every year, this event offers a plethora of nationally recognized speakers with non-stop opportunities with Real Estate Investors from all over the country. Those who work hard should get to play hard, and Carnival Liberty in the Caribbean was just what this cold Iowa boy needed. At my ripe age, I hate to confess that this was my first cruise ever, but I've already signed up for next year. If you're into Real Estate investing, it doesn't matter whether you're a seasoned veteran, an (0 comments)
Central IA Investor? - Mark your calendar! Two Rivers REIA mtg May 2nd, 2009! - 02/22/09 09:30 PM
While it's still tentative at this point, in just a few days I will know for certain whether we will have two nationally recognized speakers coming to Des Moines for a Rehabber's seminar and presentation that is going to be dynamite! Because I haven't signed the final paperwork yet, I can't let the cat out of the bag, but for those into rehabbing, wholesaling, short sales, wholetailing, or wanting to sharpen their skills in just about any area of residential real estate investing, you'll want to block out 8:00AM - 5:00PM for a full day of education, networking, and even mentoring.
