Virtually every aspect of real estate is represented among our members and they are happy to share their expertise to help you make the best decisions. Check Out the Meeting Calendar Here.

Can I attend a REIA NYC meeting if I’m not a member?

REIA NYC general monthly online meetings held on the 2nd Thursday of each month are open to members and guests at no cost. Other meetings, both online and in-person, vary depending on event. Register for our next upcoming meeting here.

When and where are the meetings?

Our main Monthly Membership Meetings occur on the 2nd Thursday of every month at 6 PM (Eastern). Currently, since COVID-19 all our upcoming workshops, events, and courses are temporarily being conducted online.

More information on monthly meetings is available on our events calendar here.

Do I need to pre-register for meetings?

Yes, pre-registration is required.

Why is there not a free meeting?

Our online Main Monthly Membership Meetings on the 2nd Thursday as well as our WIBRE (women only) and MenTour (men only) focus groups are always free. However, our other meetings are reserved for our Pro Members as part of their membership.

We want to work with people who are serious about building wealth through real estate. We consider these meetings to be part of an investment and strategy to help you achieve your desired ROI, and not a pitch-fest where attendees are bombarded with people trying to sell them something.

I’m just getting started and have no experience. Will I “fit in” at the meeting?

Many of our members have little or no experience. They are here to learn from REIA NYC’s more seasoned members and experts who are delighted to share their knowledge and advice. Surprisingly, while real estate is a competitive market, many entrepreneurs are focused on investing in the community; this is a win-win for everyone that invites support and perhaps even partnership from our member network!

What do I need to bring to a REIA NYC meeting?

Bring an open mind, a desire to learn, deals to share, and digital business cards.

What other expenses am I expected to pay?

REIA NYC isn’t selling anything! Members aren’t generally expected to pay any expenses outside their membership fees to REIA NYC. However, members do receive significant discounts should there be seminars or other events that are not free.
