What we're about

Real Estate Education and Networking - Local and Global Community


It's Free so join and you must register through Meetup for all meetings if you want any discounts on meeting payments. Bringing a first time Guest will always get you and your guest in free. If you pay and your guest shows up we can credit you the amount you paid for your next meeting. Being a member and attending meetings will help you even if all you want to do is get better at managing your finances. It will not be long before you want to manage your investments as well. If it's just starting with investing $1,000 why start with no information or education when you will be networking with Santa Barbara millionaires that will give you some very good advice of what to do and what not to do. They didn't get there without making some very expensive mistakes that you can now avoid by learning from them.

Dan Ringwald, the President of the Santa Barbara Real Estate Investors Association. I created the SBREIA in 2008 as a community service project for education and networking on real estate investing. My goal is to provide the best for less and that's why it's FREE and Online all the Time as seen as seen at

http://YouTube.com/DanRingwald - Come join us. It's fun and educational.

Videos are great but you can't network and you can't ask those all important questions. I met a Santa Barbara multimillionaire private lender at a REIA meeting and he gave me a private loan which I used to pay down credit card debt. That moved my credit score from 612 to 800 in 90 days. It was a private loan so it appeared to the credit agencies I just paid off debit and they had no clue it came from a private loan. Da, where does someone just come up with a $100,000 to pay off credit card debt? That qualified me to refinance my primary home and one of my rentals in Santa Barbara and paid off my private lender all at the same time. That is the power of networking and real estate education!

This will help expand your ability to network with other members. Meetup is FREE for members and it will help promote your business by expanding the details of your profile so other members can learn more about you and what services you have to offer. That also means you will have more information on other Meetup members to see what services they have to offer. It will also help you see other Meetup groups you might be interested in. Put up your picture and promote you and your business. That's why we are here, let's network!

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at our meetings!
