What we're about

This is the most power packed, content specific, real estate investor group in Austin. Our Facebook Group (which is free to join) has approximately 15,000 very active members, and is growing fast!

DEALS! DEALS! DEALS! People are posting new deals on our Facebook Group (and google group) every day!

We average 65 investors per meeting. We meet every 3rd TUESDAY of the month at the Austin Board of Realtors at 6:30 pm.

MEET VETERAN REAL ESTATE INVESTORS: At any given meeting, we have people in the room who have been investing in real estate for 25-30 years. They are all willing to take you under their wing and teach you what they know.

MEET PEOPLE WITH MONEY WILLING TO LEND: We also have people walking around with millions of dollars to lend to you - even if you are a beginner. They look like normal Austinites. You dont know who they are. But we do.

We can introduce you to them.

WHO'S IN CHARGE OF THIS GROUP? It is also the only investor group in town run by a 27 year veteran real estate attorney (Dan Castro) who bought his first piece of real estate when he was 21 years old.

Your hosts are 27 year veteran Real Estate Attorney and Award-Winning Author, Dan Castro and one of the best known and most trusted House Flippers and Multi-Family Investors in Texas, Anthony Garrant.

LESSONS LEARNED IN THE FIELD: Dan Castro and Anthony Garrant talk about deals they are currently working on and discuss the challenges and obstacles they are facing, and let you learn right along with them.

VIRTUAL BOARD OF DIRECTORS: Bring us your hardest questions about real estate investing, and we'll help you find the answers.

DEAL PITCHING: This is a chance to find a home for your "wholesale" deals and/or find a cash investor, or hard money lender.

NETWORKING: We give you plenty of time to "shake hands and kiss babies" with other more experienced investors.

Please join us and FORWARD THIS INVITE to all your friends (the curious, the beginners, and the experienced).

See you at the next event!
