What should I do to get the most out of my membership?

To get the most out of your membership, your presence is required!

  • Attend meetings! Each meeting commences with a market update, followed by practical information on how to succeed in real estate investing.

Network with experienced members who have been in the business for years: learn from their successes and failures, as well as open up partnership opportunities.

  • Take full advantage of our resources, including seminars, wealth events, workshops, training classes. Most seminars and events are free or deeply discounted for members.


Our monthly meetings are the backbone of our education and networking.

Why should I attend meetings?

The meetings are designed to keep members and guests updated on local market conditions, offer proven wisdom and strategies on wealth building through real estate, and deals at our “Deal Or No Deal” segment. 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.

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

REIA NYC meetings are open to members and non-members. Guest attendees pay a fee of $35 (online) and $45 (onsite).

When and where are the meetings?

Meetings occur on the 2nd Thursday of every month. They are held at the TRYP Hotel by Wyndham at 345 W 35 Street, New York, NY 10001. Check-in begins at 5:30 PM with an opportunity to network, and meetings begin promptly at 6:00 PM. More information on monthly meetings is available on our events calendar.

Do I need to pre-register for meetings?

Pre-registration is not required but strongly encouraged. Non-members save $10, and pre-registered attendees enjoy faster check-in.

Why is there not a free meeting?

Meetings are included as part of your annual membership; only guest attendees pay. We are firm believers that you get what you pay for, which is why our meetings are only free for our members. 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 there to learn from REIA NYC’s more seasoned members 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 and a desire to learn; business cards; a fully-charged tablet or laptop, a notebook and pen; and a sweater, as the temperature in the meeting room varies.

What should I do to get the most out of the meetings?

Attendees are encouraged to network and take notes at REIA NYC meetings, ask questions, and network with other members.

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. However, members do receive significant discounts should there be seminars or other events that are not free.


For people who are new to real estate and want to fast-track their success, we recommend coaching.

Does REIA NYC offer coaching?

For new investors wanting personalized coaching on building wealth through real estate, Generational Wealth Zone LLC – our parent coaching and consulting company – offers coaching through its Enjoy Your Legacy or REIA Wealth Academy coaching programs.

Do I have to be a REIA NYC member to purchase coaching?

No. While coaching is open to members and non-members, members receive exclusive pricing. If you have questions or would like more information, please email Renee Moore at [email protected]
