  • Real Estate Investing / The Real Deal

     If you want to learn about real estate investing these guys give you great information. They don't hold anything back and they give you free information that others would charge for. They give you such relevant information that you could walk away from the meetup that day and get started. Its great for investors especially newbies that don't know where to get started.

  • Real Estate Investing / The Real Deal

     The Real Deal Meetup group is exactly as the name implies, it is "The Real Deal." Charles Blair, and Kenneth Gills, are two of the most generous, informative, compassionate, knowledgeable, and transparent businessmen, I have ever met. They sincerely have everyone's best interest at heart. They thrive on witnessing the success of others and freely provide the real estate investment methods that are driving their success today. Their compensation is the expectation that you will utilize the techniques that fit your personality, and business model to grow your investment portfolio. "It's not difficult to see why they have built one of the largest groups in the nation, and with a group this large with a focus on Teamwork making the Dream work, how can it not succeed?" Thank you Charles Blair, and Kenneth Gills for your your unselfish dedication to paving the way for other's to realize their own success and dreams! 

    Ron G. on Aug 23, 2014.

  • Real Estate Investing / The Real Deal

    anthony crawford, s. on Feb 24, 2014.

  • Real Estate Investing / The Real Deal

     This is literally one of the best real estate groups that I have ever been to. Kenneth and Charles are VERY generous with the content that they offer and are more than happy to help people and answer questions you have. They never try to sell you courses or anything of that nature. Any real estate investor in the DMV area should attend their monthly meetings. There has not been one meeting that I have gone to of theirs where I have not said "Wow!" several times. And getting a wow out of me is not an easy task. I reccomend this group to any investor that I meet. Great job guys!!
