What we're about

Welcome to Saint Louis' very own The SouthSide Investment Club MeetUp Site! (SSIC)

We started in 2007, and for over 10 years, our focus has been on Knowledge, Education and Networking. Over the past decade, we’ve exploded in members both on and offline and now, we're one of the largest Real Estate Investing clubs in the Mid-West.

Why? Because we are creating success stories for our members. We cover flipping, rehabbing and wholesaling along with so much more.

We've hosted hundreds of events, and have had thousands of people attend - with presentations from some of the area’s best investors, local heroes, politicians, national speakers and more. We have added a ton of products and services to help people achieve their real estate goals, and we’ve loved almost every minute of it.

But most importantly, we’ve learned that real estate really isn’t about the money - it’s about the freedom to enjoy life. The freedom that real estate offers is so powerful, and so rewarding. The freedom to do the things you want, when you want, where you want, as often as you want. But you can’t enjoy this freedom without getting your financial house in order, and that’s where real estate comes into play.

We have a ton of events for you to connect with that help you build towards that freedom.

If you are new to SSIC, or new to Real Estate Investing in general, like never done a deal, or done less than 5 houses, then I would start by attending one of our Free Real Estate Investing Workshops, where you’ll learn: why building wealth through real estate is such an amazing opportunity, top strategies on how to find and fund your next deal, case studies on how to buy and sell real estate right here in Saint Louis, and how to build a simple, easy 5-year plan that creates wealth to achieve that freedom that we all really want.

You can also can connect in with hundreds of other local investors, rehabbers, flippers and wholesalers at our Main Monthly Case Studies and Speaker Series, where we showcase houses and deals we’ve put together, and have topics and speakers presenting on some of the best strategies on how to invest in Saint Louis.

Throughout the year, we also host 3-Day Find and Fund Seminars, Show Me Bus Tours, online webinars and more. Our 3-Day Find and Fund Seminars have focused in-depth education in finding the best deals in town, having the best deals chase you, and how to gain access to all the money you need for your real estate business. Basically, we train you to be an EXPERT DEAL FINDER! Our Show Me Bus Tours focus on things you can learn from the INSIDE of a project: how to take a house apart, and put it back together again. Trust me, you can't really learn this from a webinar or a classroom.

In addition, click below to find a list of vendors that offer work or services on houses or to real estate professionals and investors. Most of these people are either investors themselves, OR work with a ton of investors and understand what you are trying to accomplish. They’ve raised their hand and want to connect with you for your next deal. Some of these people are my personal secret weapons!

We have a very engaged online community where we talk about tips, tricks, share ideas info and advice that revolves around real estate investing. Be sure to review our club guidelines and expectations under the More/Files tab as well.
