The Holiday Party Networking Event will be an informal event with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar and is being hosted at The Grand Event Center in Long Beach.

We sincerely appreciate everyone’s support of and interest in the FIBI and we look forward to seeing you at the event. This event will be held in the usual FIBI philosophy of providing informal meeting environments without any sales pitch whatsoever with the goal of helping investors to network with and learn from others. Unlike other FIBI meetings and due to the large attendees that we expect, this meeting will not include a speaker or panel discussion but will simply be an informal networking event to help celebrate the holidays. Please note that there will be a $30 cover charge payable in cash at the door or via PayPal online to help cover the costs of the event center, as our goal is to break-even while providing everyone with a great night of networking. Come, enjoy the food and drinks, network with like-minded investors and develop all of the resources you need to be a successful real estate investor this year. We look forward to seeing as many of our FIBI members as possible on December 6th to help celebrate the holidays!

    What we're about


    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.
