What we're about

Hi, my name is Beau Eckstein and I love learning about real estate investing. I'm a full time real estate investor, broker, and hard money lender.

So talking about being in the business— I live and breathe this stuff.

When I was a real estate broker, I got introduced to a bar camp. I had no idea what the heck a bar camp was or how it would impact my business.

I know it sounds like an exaggeration, but I can tell you with 100% certainty that my first bar camp changed my business forever—and for the better.

Now, you may not know what a bar camp is, so let me explain. I’ll start with a definition from Wikipedia and then tell you what they really are.

From Wikipedia:

A bar camp is an international network of user-generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants.

Well, bar camps are like that. But they are so much more!

Imagine…a conference where you get to pick the topics. Each topic is shared, discussed, and taught in an informal way, with no endless (and boring!) Powerpoint presentations or monotonous droning on by dry speaker after dry speaker.

In fact, each topic in a bar camp is led by an industry leader, with collaboration and knowledge transfer the key objectives. You’re not going to get “pitched” at a bar camp.

Not only are they frowned upon by the bar camp community, you have my word that nobody will pitch you on the latest and greatest real estate investing program that will make you rich this time tomorrow morning.

I simply won’t allow it.

Introducing REI Bar Camp – the only event in the Bay Area where real estate investors work together on topics like:

· Getting financing through alternative lenders

· Finding good contractors

· Putting together a solid budget

· House flipping

· Attracting YOUR audience through the web, social media, and email

All this and much more.

At REI Bar Camp, you will get to meet and interact with real estate investing pros who put their money where their mouths are.
