    FORUM RULES AND POSTING GUIDELINES

    AZREIA’s forums are a community of real estate investors who are here to learn new information, to help each other, and to help their fellow peers. With that in mind, we ask that all members please follow these simple rules in order to create an atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable.
    The rules are as follows:

    • Some of our forums are available to the general public. Please do your own due diligence before following advice or doing business with another individual. You should always complete your own due diligence and seek advice from your accountant, financial advisor, attorney or others prior to doing business with anyone. By using information found on any AZREIA forum you give up the right to hold AZREIA liable for any damages or losses.

    • All the forums are categorized by topics. Please post your questions or messages in the appropriate forum.

    • Please keep all help and discussion in the forums. Outside messaging provided or requested via personal message, email, or remote desktop control programs (Logmein, TeamViewer, etc) could lead to personal risk and could deprive other forum participants from receiving the same information.

    • If a topic is posted in a forum that is not appropriate for the question, the staff has the right to move that topic to another better suited forum.

    • The posting of any copyrighted material on our web site is strictly prohibited.

    • Posting links in order to generate affiliate commissions is not permitted at AZREIA. Any posts that are deemed to be posted in order to generate affiliate commissions, regardless of the product being promoted, will be deleted. If a user continues to create affiliate SPAM posts, they will be banned.

    • There will be no use of profanity on our message boards. This will not be tolerated and can lead to immediate suspension.

    • When posting, please use proper grammar. Refrain from ‘text-message’ style substitutions of words like ‘u’ for ‘you’, and ‘ur’ for ‘your’. This allows for users with translation programs or text-to-speech programs to have equal opportunity in our forums.

    • There will be no racial, ethnic, gender-based insults or any other personal discriminations. This will not be tolerated and will lead to immediate suspension.

    • There will be no posts meant to offend or hurt any other member, in a manner which is offensive or inflammatory. This includes flaming or instigating arguments. This will not be tolerated and will lead to immediate suspension.

    • Spamming is not permitted; please keep all your posts as constructive as possible. Debate and opposing viewpoints are encouraged, as long as they are posted in a respectful and meaningful manner. Spamming includes trolling, repetitive comments, typing in all caps, and any other rude behavior. Posts and messages that violate constructive conversation will be removed at the discretion of the staff.

    • Pornography, fraudulent schemes, or any other illegal transactions may NOT be linked in any shape or form. This will not be tolerated and will lead to immediate banning.

    • This forum has the right to request alteration or deletion of any offensive post. If this is not done in a prompt manner, the Staff will delete the material themselves.

    • Posts may be deleted for any reasons the forum administrators deem reasonable. This will not be up for discussion. These rules are in place to protect all of our participants. We will only remove a post if it does not adhere to these rules or we find it disrupts the purpose of the forum. Moderators will not remove posts with malintent or because of grudges. If you have a post or message removed, it is with good reason and we reserve the right to not have to explain our reasoning.

    • Pictures may be posted as long as they are not explicit, offensive, or copyrighted.

    • Advertisements, of any sort, are not permitted. This includes member names and links to commercial sites in signatures, or in posts. Current paid Business Associates with AZREIA are allowed to advertise their member specific services for our members within reasonable amounts. You also may not solicit sales through the use of promotion or coupon codes. If you would like to advertise on our site, contact us at memberservices@azreia.org.

    • Profile pictures must be in good taste. This means no vulgar or violent images, pornography, or profanity. Profile pictures that are found to be inappropriate will be removed at the discretion of the staff.

    • Linking to hate, anti-Semitic, racist, pornography, or other illegal sites is not permitted.

    • Member’s display names cannot be email addresses. This rule is in place to protect you from spam bots who will pick up your email address and spam you.

    • Members may have only one account on this forum. There is no need to have more than one.

    • Any impersonation of a user from these forums, in any mode of communication, is strictly prohibited and will result in a banning.

    • Linked and locked topics are pruned regularly to reduce page clutter. If you have a question about where your topic went, please email memberservices@azreia.org before starting a new topic asking where it went, or posting a duplicate of the original topic. We will be happy to provide you with a link to the new location, or a reason why it was locked and/or removed.

    • All posts must be relevant to the forum and the topic. Please refrain from off-topic political or religious diatribes or personal opinions. Staff may elect to request you remove any off-topic posts or messages. If this is not done in a prompt manner, the Staff will delete the material themselves. AZREIA’s forums are for real estate, not a forum for religious or political debates, discussions, or proselytizing.

    • Do not ask to become a moderator of any forum. AZREIA reserves the right to select appropriate moderators through a thorough vetting process if more moderators are needed. Asking to become a moderator will likely decrease your chances of being contacted for this role.

    • Do not disclose any personal information that you do not wish others to know.

    • Personal discussions or “for the attention of” posts are prohibited. Please use personal text or email for this purpose. In addition, please refrain from “Goodbye Forum” posts in forum threads.

    • You Must Disclose Your Relationship with any Company, Website, Guru, or Other Entity that You Comment About. If you participate in a discussion about a company, website, guru, coaching program, etc., and have any kind of relationship with that entity (e.g. affiliate, partnership, employee, owner), you must disclose this relationship in your post. AZREIA reserves the right to publicly or privately ask about your relationship with any company that you comment on, to remove any post which does not disclose such a relationship, and to close your account if you fail to disclose such a relationship.

    • No Email Harvesting. Harvesting email addresses from our site is strictly prohibited. Do not harvest email addresses from AZREIA forum users.

    • Do not poll our users or use this forum for poaching for other forums or competing sites. Diverting our members to competitor forums or websites is strictly forbidden. Polling our members to gather information to be used on a competing real estate site, course, podcast, book, blog post or video is strictly forbidden.
    Violation of any of these rules can lead to a banning of the user from our Web Site and a deletion of their account. The consequences will be determined by the Staff on a case-by-case basis.

    When posting you agree that the administrators and the moderators of this forum have the right to modify, delete, edit or close any topic, signature, account, or profile data at any time that they see fit. If you have any questions concerning this, please do not start a new thread, but rather email us at memberservices@azreia.org.

    AZREIA reserves the right to change these rules at any time. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at memberservices@azreia.org.

    Thank you,
    AZREIA Staff

Kevin's Story

“The Launch Pad was exactly what I was hoping for. The deep dive into my expectations through your assessments was very valuable. The plan you provided me for my investment future put me at ease and gave me some reassurances that I am heading in the right direction. Launch Pad is definitely something I would recommend to all new investors. Thank you!”

Matt & Nicole's Story

“My wife Nicole and I wanted to thank you for the 4 hours of dedicated time you set aside for us. The Launch Pad program really helped us find out what our interests were, and you experience and guidance helped us figure out how to go about achieving our goals! We always thought the recommendation you gave us was unachievable, but after our meeting we realize that it is!

The Launch Pad program was extremely insightful, and we thank you for your input and explanations! Also, we look forward to all the subgroups you recommended we attend.

Thanks again! I highly recommend the Launch Pad to any new investor!!! Thanks to this program, we shaved probably 3 years off the learning curve and countless hours of frustration.”

Kevin's Story

“I took AZREIA’s Launch Pad program with Alan Langston. I found it to be very helpful as a “newbie” to REI.

The program, over 4-hours long, walked me through what my initial strategy and tactics should be for me to reach my goals. It even told me if I should even be an REI to begin with. Yes, it was that detailed.

Best of all Alan showed me how only a single SFH rented out at $2k/mth could get me to my retirement goals in 10 years!”

Who We Are!

AZREIA, Arizona Real Estate Investors Association, is a professional association that exists to serve the needs of independent real estate investors. We provide market information and analysis, education, networking opportunities, implementation guidance, and support to assist our members in achieving success in real estate investing. Since our founding in 2002, we have helped thousands of real estate investors.

  • We believe real estate investing can help anyone achieve their financial goals. Success is a process and real estate investing over the long-term can provide exceptional results. Your results are dependent on your commitment to success and the effort you put forth in addition to market factors both seen and unseen. Not everyone is willing to commit and do what is necessary (legally, ethically and morally) to succeed. We do not believe in “get rich quick”! Please take our FREE Entrepreneurial Self Assessment to better understand your suitability for real estate investing. It takes about 20 minutes.
  • We believe planning is an essential element to reaching your desired outcome. We feel our Launch Pad program for new investors is an exceptional planning process for new real estate investors that will keep you focused, take months off your development cycle and give you a much better opportunity for success. Launch Pad is available to everyone. It is available for AZREIA members at the small price of $30. Non-members may attend on a space available basis but pay a non-refundable $100 fee to attend.
  • We believe strongly in education and offer reasonably priced education both internally and from respected educators outside of AZREIA. We are not mentors or coaches. We do not offer these type of high cost programs.
  • We believe networking is critical to any investor’s success. Networking with a purpose will help you build or improve your team, understand how others are successful, learn different investing techniques, acquire property, find money partner and much more. We believe networking is the second most important aspect to successful investing falling only behind implementing a well thought out plan. In support of this belief, AZREIA offers several networking opportunities every month.
  • We believe an association should bring purchasing power to its members. AZREIA has exceptional benefits that save our members money, increase their profits and simplify their business.
  • We believe and enforce our strong Code of Ethics. (CLICK TO VIEW)

AZREIA is believed to be the largest REIA in the country. We have been the most highly recognized REIA by the National Real Estate Investors Association. No other REIA has earned the REIA of the Year Award as many times as AZREIA. Additionally, National REIA has recognized AZREIA’s education program, community program and Government Affairs program as the best. National REIA has also honored AZREIA as being the Most Innovative. Locally, the Phoenix and Tucson Business Journals have listed AZREIA among the Top 10 Professional Associations.

Will real estate investing solve my problem?

Most people consider investing in real estate as a way to solve an issue or issues in their life. The good news is real estate investing can work for anyone. So, the quick answer to the question is yes, real estate investing is a good way to solve many financial issues.

The bad news is many times a person will not take the necessary steps to ensure success in real estate investing. So, while real estate investing will work for anyone, it will not work for everyone. If you are committed and take the necessary actions (legally, ethically and morally) your probability of success is very high.

We encourage all new investors to complete AZREIA’s FREE Entrepreneurial Self Assessment. This 20 minute exercise will help you determine if real estate investing is right for you. Also, you will understand the type of investing most suited to your personal situation. [CLICK HERE to take the Entrepreneurial Self Assessment] Based on your results, you may determine to complete Launch Pad.

At AZREIA, we have a path for all people considering real estate investing to follow as a way to get started and determine if real estate investing will work for you. We call it Launch Pad!

Launch Pad is a planning process that when completed provides most new investors with the following:

  1. Your Optimal Investing Path
  2. Your Preferred Property Type
  3. Your Property Acquisition Plan
  4. Your Funding Plan
  5. Your Educational Plan
  6. Your Team Building Plan
  7. Your Networking Plan
  8. Your Beginning Timeline

We’re sure you noticed that each one of the above eight items begins with “Your”. That is because every investor is different. Your needs are unique to you, so your plan needs to be specifically designed to meet those needs. Also, your plan should fit in with your current life situation.

Here’s the kicker…. Going through the Launch Pad process will also determine if real estate investing will work for you at this time in your life. If so, great! You have a plan to implement. If not, isn’t it better to know that up front and save you a lot of time, money and anguish? At that point, you can consider other ways to solve the problems you are facing.

Consider registering for our next Launch Pad session. You will need to set aside about four hours to complete the process. If you are an AZREIA member, there is a small $30 fee for Launch Pad. Non-members may attend on a space-available basis but pay a non-refundable $100 fee to attend.

Experienced Investors

Congratulations! You are somewhere along the path to achieving your objectives. Maybe you have rehabbed a couple of houses or acquired a few rentals. Possibly you have already achieved your objectives and are fully living the life you dreamed. Regardless of where you are on your path, an AZREIA membership will benefit you by helping you get to your goals faster, increasing the margins on your current investments and simplifying your business.

Seven Ways AZREIA Will Help You

1. Market Information – Market knowledge sets you apart from your competition. How you use the knowledge and information will be unique to you and your needs. Valued market information will help you adjust your investing to current market conditions, so you don’t miss opportunities. The knowledge you gain from this valuable tool will help you communicate as an expert. It will help you raise money from investors. You will justify pricing and offers based on market trend analysis. The Market Update is invaluable and free to members.

2. Controlling Your Cost & Saving Money – AZREIA members have access to exclusive benefits from dozens of our Business Associates and major national companies like The Home Depot where members can qualify for 2% rebate and receive exclusive pricing on paint, cabinets and appliances. AZREIA members on average save over $1000 per year each through our expansive relationships. Experienced members save many thousands of dollars each year.

3. Simplify Your Business – Real Estate investing is constantly changing. New processes, new technology, new creative techniques are always coming along. AZREIA will keep you at the forefront of it all.

4. Networking – The most successful investors realize the tremendous value of networking. AZREIA makes it simple to network with a purpose. From the structured networking of the Phoenix Real Estate Club designed for experienced investors to achieve results to great networking opportunities at all our strategy based subgroups, we have made networking effortless.

5. Improving Your Team – We know you already have a team in place. You wouldn’t be a successful investor without one. Through AZREIA’s Business Associate Program it is very possible you will improve your team with experts in virtually all of the services and products you will need. You know the value of having an experience, expert team. If you need to upgrade your team, AZREIA can help.

6. Education – You’re successful, so you are smart as it relates to investing. AZREIA’s most successful investors continuously invest in their advanced education. AZREIA’s reputation allows us the benefit to be very picky on the national educators we bring to our members. We realize it is important for you to understand the latest techniques and how to integrate them into your current investing.

7. Two Things Successful Experienced Investors Need To Do – We have found that time constraints often prevent or delay experienced investors from doing two thing that will protect their long term success – proper insurance coverage and exceptional asset protection. AZREIA will assist you in understanding your insurance coverage and asset protection. We are not an insurance company or attorneys and will not give you advice. We will help you to understand what you need to know and the questions you must have answers to in both of these critical areas. There is no reason to work a lifetime for success and give it away in a day. Don’t be “one of those investors” with a story. Preventing the loss of success is possible and something every investor should do.
