    Enjoyed the event - particularly impressed by Tom's discussion and how he does not try to squeeze every last penny out of a deal - smart guy!

    GREAT! Very well done. Tom Truong's presentation was excellent, very professional, and fun as well. The networking also flowed with efficiency and "good energy". Having organized quite a few presentations myself, I know how much work goes on behind the scenes to make sure it flows seamlessly, effortlessly so it seems no one has lifted a finger. Like Nureyev or Barishnikov leaping into the air. Or your favorite athlete doing what they do. They make it look easy. Hats off to Ruben Austria and his team.

    Sadly I missed the meetup yesterday but I would still like to introduce myself. I'm a novice investor looking to transfer out of corporate America and into the investor arena. I am here because I would like to learn from experienced investors and find some who are willing to partner. I need direction and capital.

    Who I'm looking for:

    Someone who is willing to work with me.
    Someone with available capital.
    Someone who is willing to invest in fixer-uppers.
    Someone who is willing to partner and also teach me about Real Estate investing.

    Please contact me if you would like to meet and discuss working together or if you know someone who is. Thank you for your consideration
