9:30 AM — SAY IT IN SIXTY SECONDS
Our trademarked speed-networking session, Say It In Sixty, is where our members and vendors have an opportunity to deliver an effective self-promotion commercial in 60 seconds. The purpose of the Say It In Sixty mini-presentation is for you to promote your deals and services, say what you’re looking for, like a painter or tri-plex, or anything else as long as it is beneficial to the membership.
Someone in this room could be worth $1000, $5000, or more to you. Make the right connection with someone who could lead you to a deal, a contractor, or referral. Bring plenty of business cards and be prepared to share what you are looking for.
Where else can you get in front of a room full of ambitious entrepreneurs such as landlords, Realtors, wholesalers, property managers, loan officers, and those just starting out? We all join together to network, make money, get the education, hear what’s new- and to HEAR from YOU. Here are some ideas:
- Pass around business cards to get your name out
- Promote your real estate related product or service
- Hand out a flyer of the deal you want to flip or a rental available
- Pass around an opt-in form to collect names and numbers to build your buyers list
- Share a “investor special” listing (that term derives from REI Association™ meetings)
10:00 AM – MAIN PRESENTATION
Each month you’ll find a wealth of knowledge because Indiana REIA™ brings local super-achievers, millionaires next door and high profile national experts to teach, train and explain key crucial areas of real estate investing, business and property management.
Our members call our LIVE Main Event™ ‘pure gold‘ and ‘the most valuable source for education and inspiration I’ve found’.
You’re Invited! So plan to attend and bring a friend for free where passion & profits meet: our great REIA meeting.
The Fort Wayne Indiana REIA has the greatest information you’re going to find as well as the phenomenal networking. You need to be here! – Reggie Brooks, Real Estate Developer, Instructor and Investor

THIS MONTH’S LIVE MAIN EVENT
Saturday August 18th: Commercial Investing 101
Learn how commercial real estate investments can work for you. How would you like to do a huge real estate deal with very little out of pocket and walk out of closing with $200k in equity? That’s just what one of our Rising Stars of Real Estate did. And that’s what commercial real estate can do for you. Tyler Derickson will teach Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Investing, focusing on office, medical, industrial, retail and multi-family 5+ units. Learn terminology used in CRE, how CRE is valued, CAP rates and deal analysis to show how they all correlate together.
We will walk investors through a quick way to analyze deals using a real life listing pulled from the internet. There are multiple ways to value a deal and every investor is different, but it’s a great hands on approach that investors can tailor to their own preferences. Also, take part deals for wholesaling commercial deals, BRRR, Syndication and Buy & Hold. Don’t think you need a ton of money or experience before you can enter into the commercial side side.
We will also award our new Rookie of the Year! Come help celebrate and get to know the up and coming investors in your local area.
11:30 AM – Q&A, GIFTS & GIVEAWAYSAt this time we have Question-and-Answer Session: ask your burning questions and get local up-to-date answers. Plus: Bring in your deals – our experts will help you structure them. Also, hear successful deals from our members.
We also give away gifts to all first-time guests and give away a door prize to one lucky REIA member. Then we wrap up with questions & lessons learned. You can tap the mastermind group to overcome key frustrations and provide answers to member’s burning questions so you can take confident action in the direction of your goals- even if you didn’t think you could take when you arrived a few hours before.
NOON – MEETING AFTER THE MEETING
This is where the formal Saturday August 18th meeting ends and the meeting after the meeting begins. REIA members and guests hang out in the parking lot talking and exchanging numbers, deals and ideas. Many also meet for lunch or coffee for relationship building. In our fast paced culture face-to-face networking is still the best way to accelerate your success, build accountability and a support group.
If you still have questions about the presentation or questions about anything else along your road to riches, get plugged into our rich community of events, such as our REIA Mastermind meetings, Landlord luncheon, Cashflow Games, and other local REIA meetups and support groups.
People pay lots of money for stuff like this!
Just wanted to say thanks for all the advice on the call. You guys were right on. I am looking forward to taking full advantage of all these Mastermind sessions. People pay lots of money for stuff like this so it’s a great opportunity. See you next month!
– Thomas Landis, Fort Wayne real estate investor

I took a small road trip to Fort Wayne, Indiana to attend a REIA meeting…
I had the pleasure of meeting several knowledgeable, and surprisingly helpful individuals… so much to learn from the meetings. I would highly recommend to any fellow Newbie’s to step out of your comfort zone and meet with people. So many people are willing to share such great information! …everyone was very welcoming, They have an outstanding REI Association in Fort Wayne. I would definitely make a trip like that again, and I am glad I made the drive! thanks, guys! – Sam Harrington, Goshen Indiana real estate investor

The Comfort Zone is the Failure Zone
Before I attended I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the club has been a great experience. Being new to real estate investing I am trying to learn as much as possible and Indiana REIA has been my most valuable asset. Some meetings can push me a little out of my comfort zone because it can be a little overwhelming at times with all of the new information but the comfort zone is the failure zone. Happy member of four years! – Dennis Basinger, Fort Wayne Landlord
