What we're about

FFREIA exists to enable individuals seeking financial security and freedom through real estate investing by offering education, networking and support to the community in the Greater Rochester, New York area.

We believe that every individual should have access to knowledge that allows them to find freedom by building wealth; that investing in real estate is the best method to achieve true freedom and financial security; and that ethical, professional real estate investing positively impacts the community and local economy.
