What we're about
FOR INVESTORS BY INVESTORS (FIBI):
South Bay Real Estate Investment Club
There is no “I ” in real estate.
FIBI (For Investors By Investors) is a real estate and business related networking group WITHOUT the sales pitch. This group was originally started in order to create a venue where investors and business owners could go to learn from other investors, help each other and not get a sales pitch for books, tapes, or the program of the month.
Typically at one of our events there is a ton of networking along with panel and round table discussions on real estate, investment strategies, business development, economics in the current investing climate, and all things real estate related, in order to educate our members and help them invest correctly and with the proper knowledge base. People use FIBI to expand their resources and everyone is ready to help each other and come together as a group to increase each other’s net worth. FIBI is a non-profit organization and does not make any money off of events it throws.
We started the South Bay Chapter of FIBI because we truly believe in the power of helping others invest without having to receive something in return. There will be no sales pitch at any of our events and we guarantee you will be educated via our unique panel format. Our years of real estate experience have allowed us to cultivate an incredible group of professionals that are smart, successful and willing to share their experience with you.
Each month, we will feature a topic that is critical to successful investing in real estate and invite a range of panelist that specialize on the subject. Besides us moderating the discussion to mine for the most relevant information, we will also encourage audience participation so you can get your questions answered.
Please come check out one of our meetings and we promise you will receive beneficial information, superb networking with other real estate investors and most importantly, NO sales pitch.
For questions, contact us! Looking forward to seeing you soon.
