I became a member of REIA NYC, Dr. Teresa Martin’s real estate, mastermind and training association, this past January and because of Dr. Martin and I am convinced that I have joined the best Real Estate Investment group in New York. Teresa is relentless in providing her time and energy to produce thorough and informative meeting agendas. I have been extremely impressed at the level of organization she possesses to flawlessly execute well run meetings and events. Teresa is not only extremely knowledgeable, but she selflessly provides her time to give coaching to new members through the new member orientation and follow-up one on one sessions to get members moving in the right direction. The most admirable thing about Teresa is that she is so dedicated to ensuring that partners and other service providers that come to REIA NYC are well vetted, while at the same time providing the knowledge for members to make informed decisions. When I was making a significant time sensitive decision, Teresa was there at a moment’s notice to give me information so that I could make a well informed decision. This level of dedication is invaluable to me as a member and has facilitated my ability to do business. She takes personal accountability and really made me feel like I have joined a family. I always learn something new about real estate investing and wealth building when I speak to Teresa or have the opportunity to hear her speak. She also encourages us to network with each other and expand the number of people we know and look for opportunities. I will continue to highly recommend REIA NYC to others because of Teresa. I already have recommended Teresa and the organization to everyone who asks me about real estate investment or wealth building.Sonya RocvilBerry Rocvil Enterprises, LLC
My wife and would have to say that Dr. Teresa Martin conducts her business with integrity, passion and with a mission at heart: to make others successful in real estate investing. One can see that it is not about herself but about making sure that her members are successful by being proactive, focused and educated. What she has done for my wife and I (and for the association as a whole) is expose us to many different real estate investment strategies. In addition, she has made us be aware of creating and the value of "generational wealth." Because Dr. Martin dedicated a Saturday to educate, empower and enlighten all of us who partook in this overseen and very important topic, she has encouraged my wife and I in planning better for our future and that of our family. We would and have recommended others to join the REIA NYC, and have thanked Dr. Martin many of times for her work in providing us meaningful, appropriate, useful and well related topics to help us be successful as Real Estate Professionals and Investors. THANK YOU!Johnson Oropeza263-265 Weirfield Street LLC
Dr. Attorney Teresa Martin has provided the professional insight, encouragement & support that I have been looking for in a coach. Actually she had provided much more than I expected. Her hands on approach & understanding has enabled me to move pass my personal fears limitations. Without her support I don't think that would have gotten to the stage that I have in my business. I would highly recommend anyone who is serious about their company moves to the next stage or if they are just starting out as I am to seek out her professional guidance.Jacqueline McKinnonHuffman Properties Inc.

Becoming a real estate investor is more than just buying a property. There are a lot of variables that are key to whether you become a success. Or not. Or worse, to just tread water until you
finally become frustrated and quit all together.
Having started down the road to real estate investing in the Spring of 2006, Paul experienced the joy of the acquisition, the lows of the housing crash, and the frustration of plans exceeding the bank account.
Paul Bodley: Co-Founder/P&P Realty Developments, LLC (www.pprealtydev.com), a family owned company headquartered in Westchester County, New York. The company has grown to include a single-family property portfolio in Central and Western New York, with plans to expand into South Carolina, Indiana, Kansas and Pittsburgh, PA.
Paul worked in the publishing industry for over 25 years and has studied various real estate techniques under the direction of a variety of industry leaders, including but not limited to, Robert Allen, Dave Lindahl (Commercial Real Estate and multi-families), Jeff Adams (REO and Foreclosures), Than Merrill of Fortune Builders (Rehab), Cameron Dunlap and Preston Ely (Wholesaling), and many more.
Being an Advisory Council Member with REIA NYC has allowed him to share his experience as an upstate, out of town landlord with fellow investors who want to walk down that path, and hopefully avoid some of the mistakes he’s made along the journey.
In his role as Legislative Chair of REIA NYC, he updates the membership on various laws and rules that can impact the way we (real estate investors) conduct business. In a geeky way, it’s a match made in heaven!
As REIA NYC begins to evolve and grow, so will the role that The Legislative Committee plays in understanding the complex rules of the game. Using our combined clout insures the rules help, and not hinder our journey to success. I am happy to lead REIA NYC’s crusade in this important fight.
