What we're about

Southside Builders Association is a community of REAL ESTATE investors, rehabbers, builders, rental property owners, flippers, developers, managers and principals of residential and commercial real estate. The goal of SBA is to bring established real estate pros together for a monthly lunch meeting to share knowledge, stay abreast of the market, connect with peers and participate in a forum to discuss and learn about industry issues, trends and opportunities....Getting deals done is always a benefit too. Together with the City and our neighbors, the SBA has long term plans to contribute to the expansive rebirth of Chicago’s great south side as well as all neighborhoods.
