What we're about

What to Expect from a VIG Real Estate Investor Meetup? And; Will There be Pizza & Beer?:)

Whether you are a current or future real estate investor, come expect to be entertained, educated, fed, and... Bring your business cards! Savvy members arrive on time to get their pizza (vegan options available), and to get their drink and networking on. Most members find the pre, and post-event socializing with our dynamic open, and easy-to-network-with group, just as valuable as the featured speaker!

We won't bore you! The backbone of every event is a 1 hour presentation by a new, qualified and interesting speaker. And as longs as the topic is relevant for real estate investors, we like to mix it up! This year alone we are covering "401K Real Estate Investing", "Mobile Home Park Investing", "Creative Financing", "Apartment Building Syndications", "Turnkey Investing", "Student Housing Investing", "Self- Storage Investing", "Cannabis Real Estate Investing"... And the list goes on!

After the main speaker its the members turn because we like to do our member introductions just before we get back to the networking! Members are encouraged to introduce themselves; but no need to prepare; because everyone tries to keep their elevator pitches limited to 20 seconds or less.

Now you know what everyone does, spend the last 20 minutes to network with experienced investors from all over the SF Bay Area; while, enjoying some nourishing, if by now cold, pizza and drinks! Members use this time to find deals, money, buyers, and most of all to build and foster relationships and learn from each other's experiences.

After the meetup, the half of the group that does not go straight home to write out their notes, walks to a close by neighborhood bar for some casual networking and perhaps one more drink.

If you think that sounds interesting, you are not alone! Come see for yourself why we are the fastest growing and, arguably, the most dynamic Real Estate Investing group in the SF Bay Area. We hope to see you soon!

Don't take our word for it. Here is some typical feedback from one of our members:

"I went to the Virtual Investors Group (VIG) to see if I could learn about SFH investing. And after a few meetups I ended up learning about that, and a whole lot more; multi family, mobile home, self-storage, section 8, etc. The meetups were eye opening for me. They give me new ideas about what options I can look at and, once I know about those, I can always finds books or podcasts online to learn more. For a new investor like me, the VIG meetup is a great resource that helps me find an investment direction that is right for me!" - Group Member H.N. - 2017

“ My favorite thing about this meetup is that each attendee gets to share who they are and what they're up to, and then socialize right afterwards. It takes 20 minutes and the connections are invaluable. Not sure why every meetup doesn't do this! ” - B.K. - 2017
