About the Event:

Our meetings focus on NETWORKING in a fun and social atmosphere!

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 just getting started or afraid to talk to people :) - We'll make sure you are in a safe, comfortable environment. After all, introverts sometimes make the best networkers.

Bonus: We will also be hosting the "Big Cheese" aka light appetizers!

Plus, there is easy access and plenty of FREE parking at Abel's North.

    Listing Spark has done a MAJOR revamp to their web design and our meeting group will be one of the first to preview it. Slick stuff! Be sure to attend and find out how to sell your fix and flips with full exposure on the MLS with professional photos for only $7 a day and no other fees! I can personally attest to saving over $13,000 on my last 2 flips. Come and find out how you can do the same.

    Looking for a home for me in South Manchaca, Westgate, Cherry Creek or West Congress neighborhoods. Not over $300,000. Detached, with garage. I can have representation if you prefer but can work solo if it suits you. I need to find something and close before June if possible. Thank you very much :) Doug Tidwell[masked]
