What we're about

This group is a Chapter of the Los Angeles Real Estate Investors Club (“LAREIC”), the oldest and largest investor group in California. We also have chapters in Orange, Ventura, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties, as well as nine local Meetup groups.

Raising Funds for Your Next Deal


RAISING FUNDS FOR YOUR NEXT DEAL. When investors are asked what concerns them most about buying a property, surveys shows that the vast majority express concern with NOT having the money to do the deal. They either don’t have the down payment, or partners, or a lender, or any other sources of capital. Well, we’re going to help solve this issue by having an expert on raising capital join us for our February 10th meeting.

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: Amy Mahjoory is a real estate investor, educator, best-selling author and one of the stars of HGTV’s most popular “House Hunters.” Over the last nine years, Amy has raised over $25 Million dollars in private money and completed numerous real estate transactions all over the country. Today, she is a part owner in over $500 million of commercial real estate and lives in Austin, TX with her husband, Sean (who is also a real estate investor). In her best-selling book titled, “Networking with A Purpose,” Amy brings the principles of creative networking to life through the stories, events and ideas that have shaped her path to success.

Raising private money has been the key to her success leading to stardom on HGTV and beyond. As a result of her success, investors started coming to Amy asking her to teach them how to raise capital (while everyone else struggles with this critical aspect of real estate). Amy has gone on to help thousands of real estate investors all over the country raise private money with her proven systems. At Amy’s presentation, you will learn:

+ Get 100% funding for your deals

+ Get funding without experience, credit, or liquidity

+ Gain confidence to raise private money

+ Raise money with borrowing from family or friends

+ Use advanced capital-raising techniques

Amy has helped thousands of real estate investors all over the country raise private money with her proven systems, and now it’s your turn. We are so excited to have Amy as our featured speaker on February 10th.
