About the Event:

Our meeting will focus on NETWORKING!

Networking is one of the main keys to building your RE Investor business.

It only takes one person, one opportunity, and one deal to change your life.

During this meeting we'll make sure you network with everyone there. Don't worry if you are afraid to talk to people :) - We'll make sure you are in a safe, comfortable environment. After all, introverts sometimes make the best networkers.

Our goal is to put money with deals meaning if you have money and you're looking for a deal, you'll find it at this meeting and if you have a deal and you're looking for money, you'll find it at this meeting. This event will be fun and valuable.

Bonus: We will also be hosting the "Big Cheese" aka light appetizers during our happy hour meeting at Blackfinn!

Plus, there is plenty of FREE parking in the nearby covered garage.

Appetizers are sponsored by Listing Spark and auction.com!

Listing Spark is a technology based real estate brokerage that provides sellers with MLS access, ads on Zillow, trulia, Realtor.com, etc, high quality professional photography, digital lockbox with showing information and much more.  Sellers manage their listing from a password protected account and receive automated email notifications of any listing activity.  We offer all of this for just $4.99 a day (billed on a monthly basis) with a one time $150 transaction fee paid at closing, as well as the ability to cancel anytime.


Auction.com is the nation's leading online real estate marketplace and has sold $26 billion of property since inception. At Auction.com, we believe that bringing buyers and sellers together with an easy, transparent platform yields the true value of any real estate asset, whether it be a luxury home, a multi-story Class A office building, an entry-level foreclosed home, or a self-storage facility. Our approach is simple: bring quality assets to the market, make all prospective buyers aware of the property through world-class marketing, and use state-of-the-art technology in a transparent online marketplace. Buyers get a fair last look on each property. Sellers have confidence that the price they receive reflects the true market value. We do this in collaboration with buyers’ and sellers’ agents to ensure that everyone gets the information needed to ensure a satisfying experience and optimal outcome. All this in a streamlined, customer-friendly approach that—in most cases—goes from auction to close in 60 days!

    Hi Guys, this was a great event with dynamic and vibrant members. Kudos to the organizers, presenters and special thanks to the sponsors. I am excited to enter into the real-estate investment area. I am invited by another meetup group "Austin Technology Forum for Realtors and Brokers" to speak at their seminar. My topic is IDX website and how can brokers and realtors make money from their own website instead of paying for it.

    A great meeting with great people, and excellent presentations. When I introduced myself and said I had just moved to Austin, someone declared, “What took you so long?” I think I agree with that sentiment and greatly appreciate all of the advice and welcomes I received. I look forward to seeing everyone in the future.
