Whew! These past six months have flown by. Look at what we’ve done just in the first half of the year:
We’ve had John Burley, Maria Giordano, Phoenix Deputy City Manager Gina Montes, The Wholesale Sharks, Max Jimenez, Steve Trang, Congressman Greg Stanton, Mark Zinman, Marcus Maloney, Greg Slaughter, and Tina Tamboer all join us to share their expertise with us and teach us something new.
We’ve had a wholesaling class, a landlord class, a fix and flip bus tour, multiple Launch Pad planning sessions, almost 100 subgroups and meetings, our five Core Skills Classes, our new monthly Cash Flow 101 board game sessions, our new monthly Membership Discovery sessions, and a new weekly educational meeting called “Not Another Lunch and Learn.”
We’ve rolled out our Membership Learning Hub, a brand-new website, 30 new podcast episodes, new forums on our website (one of which is a place to post your properties to our members to see), an LLC creation program in conjunction with Phocus Law, added investing calculators to the website, built and moved into our new offices and state-of-the-art training room, rolled out the Deal Finders Club, started collecting data from our members for an expanded market update at our meetings, and won the 2022 Innovation Award from the National REIA.
After spending the slow month of July sitting back, taking a deep breath, and planning for the future, we are ready to get rolling on our plans for the next half of this year in full force.
We will be back with our subgroups and monthly meetings, we already have Jack Bosh, who specializes in flipping lots and land, coming to our monthly meeting this month, Anthony Chara, who specializes in multifamily housing, Al Williamson, who specializes in extended stay AirBnB rentals, and Tina Tamboer, the top residential market analyst in the state, on the docket for our upcoming meetings and events. We’re planning an out-of-state investing class, wholesale class, creative deal structuring class, Launch Pad sessions, and a fix and flip bus tour. We have a few new subgroups in the works that we might be rolling out very soon and a new upcoming affiliate program where members can earn credits for recommending new members. Plus, this November we will be celebrating AZREIA’s 20th Anniversary!
We are always finding the next best experience, opportunity, or education to provide our members. We want everyone to make the best of their real estate investing and be excited about it! So, let’s make it exciting! Join us on our ride to the future, we always have a seat saved just for you.
