We took on a great task this year- bringing back an investor meeting group to Staten Island! What better to name it than READY FOR LAUNCH!
### A Bold Step:
My Broker Jose Matias and I embarked on the journey of reestablishing an investor meetup group in Staten Island. This aimed to provide a platform for like-minded individuals to come together, share insights, and collectively navigate the world of real estate investment.
### The Success Story:
While the first meeting may not have seen the anticipated 30+ attendees, it was undeniably a success. What it lacked in numbers, it made up for in the quality of engagement. The intimate setting allowed for in-depth discussions on diverse investing styles. Attendees learned about the art of investing in properties across state lines, managing multi-unit buildings, and even the intricacies of house flipping, all while having Staten Island as the backdrop.
### A Glimpse into the Future:
While the initial turnout might not have met expectations, we remain optimistic about the future of this investor meeting group. As word spreads and the value of such gatherings becomes evident, the group is poised to grow. The intimate setting, conducive to productive discussions, will likely draw in more individuals who are passionate about real estate investment.
## Takeaways and Looking Ahead:
### Packed with Wisdom:
The journey of rekindling the investor meeting group has been a treasure trove of insights. Attendees not only shared their experiences but also gained a deeper understanding of diverse investment strategies. The sessions were a melting pot of ideas, fostering an environment of learning and growth.
### Marking the Calendar:
Mark your calendars for the next Ready For Launch meetup! Session 2 will be Monday, August 28, 2023 at 6:00PM. Same location as always- 418 Port Richmond Avenue (Matias Real Estate). This months speaker will be Sandra Schanks, a reputable Staten Island lender who also provides hard money lending!!
