These meetings are the heart and soul of AZREIA. Chapter meetings are held monthly in Phoenix and Tucson. Every month you have the opportunity to receive an in depth market update presentation, network with your fellow Investors and our Business Associates, and hear a guest speaker or panel of professionals. There is ample time set aside for networking. Many of our Business Associates elect to participate in a “trade show” like forum and host a table. This makes it easy for you to identify the business and experts you need to discuss your issues with and craft a solution.
The general session includes a guest speaker or panel of professionals that specialize in a specific area of real estate investing. There is no other organization in Arizona that brings individuals and organizations interested in investing in real estate together with the business community that supports them and this happens every month! Create your network and support group that will help make you successful!

AZREIA’s Community Program is designed to involve the association, its members and the broader real estate investing community in worthwhile community programs or projects that delivers a valuable service to the community, creates a “sense of community” within the AZREIA, provides value to our members that participate and promotes AZREIA’s positive vision and mission. Stardust Building Supplies, Superstition Community Food Bank, and Habitat for Humanity are the ideal organizations for AZREIA to support and are worthy of your support as well.
Currently, AZREIA supports Stardust Building Supplies and the Superstition Community Food Bank. Historically, we have participated with Habitat for Humanity as an Adopt-A-Home Sponsor. We also hosted a COVID-19 updates page available to the public for landlords and renters to keep up-to-date on the eviction moratorium and financial assistance during the pandemic.
(A personal note from Michael Del Prete, Executive Director, AZREIA – I know you have personal charities that you support as do I. Personally, I never cross my personal charities with the professional ones. Giving back to your industry is important just as providing for personal causes is important. I trust you find our relationship and support of Habitat for Humanity, Apache Food Bank, and Stardust Building Supplies worthy of your participation with your charitable dollars or your valuable time. Thank you for your consideration.)
Stardust Building Supplies
Many of our members support Stardust Building Supplies through utilization of their de-construction service. Rehabbers and contractors have an alternative to costly, time-consuming demolition with Stardust Deconstruction. Stardust provides free site demolition and removal to Phoenix-area rehabbers. When a rehabber is going into a new project he only needs to call Stardust Building Supplies. They will send out their own team of trained and skilled removal technicians, who will dismantle the project site and haul it away free of charge.
For example, let’s say you are going to install a new kitchen. All of the old kitchen’s fixtures need to be removed before the project can begin. Normally, they would be ripped out, tossed into dumpsters and carted off to local landfills. But, you call Stardust Building Supplies, this is what happens instead: their team arrives at the job-site and carefully removes all the old fixtures in the existing kitchen including countertops, cabinets, cabinet doors, hardware, flooring, stoves, ovens, refrigerators . . . they even take the kitchen sink.
The newly removed items are then brought to one of Stardust Building Supplies’ two locations where they are repaired, refurbished and cleaned. Then the items are placed for sale in the store, where they can be purchased at a fraction of the original cost and used by area landlords or homeowners in need. With Stardust Deconstruction services, you save valuable man-hours ripping out and removing a kitchen while hundreds of cubic feet of landfill space are conserved. Also, landlords and local residents in need of good-as-new, low-cost kitchen fixtures can now improve their homes for much less money.
Here is one member’s testimonial:
I almost can’t believe what Stardust did for us this morning! They showed up at our rehab house at 6:30 AM and almost did a complete tear out & removal! They stripped the kitchen & both bathrooms and took doors & light fixtures that we wanted to replace. Then they hauled it all away, and it cost us nothing. Then on top of that, they gave us a receipt for a tax deduction!
Also, the people that they sent were quick, efficient, and easy to get along with. What a great organization. Thanks for bringing them on board. We’ll be using them on ALL of our future rehabs. I figured you might appreciate some positive feedback. Thanks again for all you do.
