What People Are Saying

Great turnout for first meeting! Thank you for providing an opportunity to meet up and network with vendors and likeminded investors in the San Gabriel Valley!

- Gustavo O.

If anyone is interested in becoming a real estate investor, this will be the place to start. Also an excellent opportunity for seasoned investors as well to be able to network with other like-minded investors.

- Marc F.

The Greater LA REIA was great for networking, very informative, and friendly.  I will add this meetup to my calendar for sure, 3rd Thursdays.                

- Sara P.

.I was able to speak one on one with Sam and enjoyed learning about foreclosure from Lloyd Segal. The first free meeting at Greater LA REIA offered a platform for like-minded individuals to gather and enhance their knowledge of the competitive real estate market. Regardless of experience level, this community provides valuable opportunities to network, learn, and grow in real estate investing.

- John O.

Great evening… time well spent …. meeting & talking with passionate people about real estate, financing, and what’s going on with them and this R.E. market. Oh, yes, the impromptu entertainment by Loyd and Sam was a nice touch. You’ve set a high bar for upcoming meetings. The evening was FANTASTIC. Thank You!

- Anthony P.

Networking was really fun. I got a chance to meet several interesting, like-minded investors. The speakers, Sam and Llyod, were also very thought provoking. Both have so much experience and are “in the trenches”, actually investing. Keep doing what you’re doing! I am super happy that you are expanding Sam’s incredible club blueprint to the IE (Inland Empire). Your timing is excellent, the IE is booming. The Greater LA REIA meeting was a great reminder of how important networking is to real estate investing. I made several great contacts at the July 2023 meeting.

- Jerry D.
