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, and hear what’s new in our local real estate market. But we also want 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
- Pass around an opt-in form to collect to build your buyers list
- Share an “investor special” (a term derived from REIA meetings)
- Hand out flyers of a deal you have to flip or a rental available
10:00 AM – MAIN PRESENTATION
REIA brings local Fort Wayne investors, 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 the LIVE Main Events ‘pure gold’ and ‘the most valuable source for education and inspiration I’ve found’.
What a fantastic group of people. The Fort Wayne Indiana REIA has the greatest information you’re going to find as well as phenomenal networking. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just beginning you need to be here for the community, courses and resources. Plan to attend each month for a wealth of knowledge!

Saturday July 20th
The New Opportunity in Opportunity Zones !
Are you ready for the new investing opportunities in our local real estate market? Hear how members are taking advantage of the new laws and deferring taxes. The benefits Opportunity Zones under the new tax bill are twofold: Sell your own assets and defer/step-up gain or set up an Opportunity Zone Fund and attract investors for qualifying low income properties.
Compared to a 1031 Exchanges to Qualified Opportunity Zone investments have a good chance of helping many real estate investors. Unlike a 1031 Exchange you can roll capital gains from anything other real estate or stocks into an Opportunity Zone Fund (aka an LLC that meets certain requirements) and defer the gain plus get a stepped up basis.
We will explain and analyze the benefit of both strategies. And members will give their first-hand experiences with both.
The educated investor will find great opportunities for huge profits as our real estate market shifts. Use the trade secrets of our REIA Community to see on what’s working in our local market for massive success in real estate!
11:30 AM – Q&A, GIFTS & GIVEAWAYS
At 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
Yes, MAM. This is where the formal Saturday July 20th meeting ends and the “Meeting After the Meeting” (MAM) 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 am glad I made the drive!
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 Newbies 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!

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!
