We feel that by getting a big group together to play this game, we all benefit by learning from each other. Because, every person tht comes to our Game nights wants to learn and share their insights as well.

Lisa Hoegler

Lisa credits finding her love for real estate during her Habitat experience, she undoubtedly credits Metrolina REIA in CHarlotte for making her, as she calls it, “a player in the sport investing.” By networking with other inverstors and vendors at the Metrolina REIA, Hoegler was able to quickly get the right education, learn the rules of the game and start hitting home runs with her fledgling rehab business.

Sean Mckay

Sean is passionate about both real estate investing and Self-Directed IRAs and Sean will put that knowledge to good use as a leader of the Metrolina REIA Landlord Association.

Larry Goins

I was asked by the founder of y local association Allon Thompson of Metrolina REIA to get involved in the group. I joined, became a member and was eventually elected president for two years. I was one of the locl go-to guys to bring deals to and it all started because I volunteered at my local association. Thanks Allon!

The Metrolina REIA is the key to mitigate the risk associated with investing in real estate. They can provide a wealth of information regarding real estate investing laws and best practices. You will also have the opportunity to network with other real estate professionals and create partnerships.
At BridgeWell Capital, we encourage our borrowers to join Metrolina REIA so they can be even more successful when applying for a private loan.

Bill Carey

At our last Investor meeting (Metrolina REIA) I met more new members who joined to have another way to access the deals in “Short Sales” and “Foreclosures”. Many brokers/agents don’t want to help buyers with “Short Sales” they say it’s just too much work.
