We’re a Reach-For-The-Stars
kind of group
The people at this REIA group are very knowledgeable, and are always willing to share info with each other. Real Estate is truly a business where you don’t have to push people down to lift yourself up. It’s always exciting to hear about deals that are happening around in our area, not just somewhere else. so that’s worth joining to be around like-minded people.
The people here in this group are really action takers, not just full of hot air. If you’re serious about success in Real estate, you owe it to yourself to attend this monthly meeting. Remember, it’s better to be surrounded by people who know more, so you can learn, and then earn more.
It’s a very positive atmosphere, filled with people who love & enjoy real estate. Mike Paschall
I joined Fort Wayne REIA about 4 years when we bought 33 SFRs and new nothing about the real estate and started managing the properties myself. So I decided to join the Local Fort Wayne REIA to learn real estate and started going there on regular bases and learned from the experts in the REIA from managing properties to flipping and acquiring multifamily apartments. I enjoy networking with other members of the REIA who are always ready to share their knowledge and expertise. Krishan ‘Kay Kay’ Singh
Surround yourself with individuals that you want to be like: financially literate individuals who can show you how to save money, make money. It is a good choice to be a part of the Fort Wayne Real Estate Investors Association™ because this is where you’re going to be in contact with those like-minded people. This is where you’re going to learn a lot of techniques and how to determine what’s a good deal and how to inspect the properties. This is where you’re also going to get several opportunities to properties. So if you don’t have properties yet this is a great deal to get started. Samuel Benford
I’ve learned a ton from other members who own or manage a hundred to 900 units. Whether you’re just starting out or been doing this for years it’s great to get this kind of insight and experience. You’ll make thousand times the cost of the membership. You definitely won’t regret it. Matt Gruntman
Fort Wayne REIA™ is unbelievable in the knowledge that is provided for an inexpensive membership. I’ve learned valuable tips and members are very friendly. They guide you for any avenue you are interested in. I highly recommend you come and try it! Linda Jackson

They giving you time to ask your questions and help you find a workable plan so you can move forward in your own business.

Since I joined REIA I have met some of the most gracious and honest people. Everyone is willing to help YOU be successful. So, whether you are an experienced investor or absolutely new to the industry, I highly recommend this association. Betty Graham
There is so much wrong information out, especially in real estate. But you get the right stuff here. And from people who are really doing it; doing here in Indiana, and doing it today in this market. From experts to newbies I am learning from all. When I first started coming to the meetings I realized I could do it. I come to every meeting and it’s snowballed from there. I definitely recommend joining because the member fee is well, well, worth it! Tim Tumbleson
I’ve gotten a lot of great information and advice that’s been great for me; different ways to do things Instead of trying to wing it on my own or learn as I go. Now I can avoid costly mistakes and have better ways to approach deals and situations. Mark McKibben

There’s some of the best information you’re going to find and some of the best investors, all here at Fort Wayne’s REIA. Bring your deals and business cards because the networking is phenomenal. Membership in this group definitely has advantages that investors need.”
Reggie Brooks, property developer + instructor
With so many great investors involved with so many years’ experience and who all specialize in so many different aspects of real estate, it’s really a one-stop shop. It’s definitely a great place to turn if you need motivation, a new angle or a brilliant idea. As a newbie, I didn’t have any network but now I feel like I have so much knowledge in my back pocket I am able to take on any project that might come my way. I’m about to make my 1st deal and I don’t think I would have had the backbone to do so without Indiana REIA. It’s a reach-for-the-stars, make-it-happen kind of group. Christy Wingfield
Since I’ve started attending the Fort Wayne REIA they’ve had nationally known investors as well as local investors present, giving a wide range of perspectives. Each meeting has actionable information that you can take and directly apply to your businesses that day. Just one meeting helped me revamp my tenant screening processes to ensure I’m selecting quality residents. It’s an openly helpful environment where you can ask questions and get answers from those who have been investing for many years. Kirk Olsen
The REIA meetings are an explosion of knowledge- more than you could find anywhere else. It’s so exciting and profitable to see the different angles and ways to make money in real estate. You can live in Fort Wayne all your life and not find these valuable connections. Dan Dew
I’m very excited about the REIA because I can learn different styles of investing in my down time but I can also network and build relations with different types of investors. John Holifield
Join the group! There’s incredible content. Membership is one of the cheapest and best things you can do to educate yourself as an investor. Don Conrad
Fort Wayne REIA™ has great networking; there are a lot of deals going around. It’s been a real pleasure to talk with this group; they are all very friendly. Selina Stoller
About a dozen members went over to look at that property that I marketed during the networking session at the meeting. I now have an offer in hand on the property. All in all, just a fantastic day! Our sincerest thanks to Indiana REIA. Kathy Selig
The people here have helped me so much in my real estate career. I don’t believe I would be where I am without them. You get the contacts that will make or break you. The people have so much to offer so you don’t have to guess where I am. It will work because the members are from here. So you can trust what you’re getting is the real deal. Josh Barnard
I used the forms that Indiana REIA has in the Member Academy more than once to send offers so far. I’m now watching the videos to learn how to do flips and buy-and-hold. And members also help me with questions and advise in many ways too. I’ve met excellent members which mentor me, review my deals, give me names of the people or resources that I needed. No other place I have offers that. Each event brings a new concept to teach us about the business that I can apply to make my business better. Thank you for gave the opportunity to join the group and for all your help especially in the beginning of my career.
2023 UPDATE: After a two years being a member let me tell you something, once I’m at the REÍA meeting I feel that I always win because I learn at least one thing that I add to my business and build it easily. Thanks for the opportunity for being with all professors & mentors at the REIA Indiana

I took a small road trip to Fort Wayne, Indiana to attend a REIA meeting and had the pleasure of meeting several knowledgeable and surprisingly helpful individuals… so much to learn from meetings such as that. 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

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
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
Fort Wayne REIA™ is a great environment to network and learn the best techniques in real estate so you’re not duplicating mistakes. We got ideas and advice from real estate working in our area- instead of people in forums in other states where the market and laws are different. Bottom line: great people, great ideas. Yvonne Brunner
Because of the incredible support of the Indiana REIA membership I can get help with my real estate deals anytime I need it. From day one I instantly fell in love with the REIA team, values and camaraderie. I’m thrilled to be a part of it and am looking forward to ever improving my real estate business and helping others like I have been mentored. Mike Myers
Since I start participating in REIA meetings and studying the Member Academy I have learned so much about Real Estate that I am ready to face my first Investment deal confidently in just months. As you can image I am very excited about it. And you, reading this, my friend, you can do it too. Come to the REIA meetings and become part of the family. You will see. Thank you Fort Wayne R.E.I.A for changing my life, I couldn’t do it any other way as fast or affordable. Camilo Chaviane
Now that I have started scaling my business and growing in Fort Wayne, I find that the support of a sizable group can also be a MAJOR asset. The value I take from this meeting far outweighs any concerns I used to have. I’d encourage you to come check it out. I think you’ll find that the value of the networking is invaluable. Drew Wiard
I’ve attended one REIA meeting which was last month. IT was HUGELY beneficial, and I think I was pretty lucky that I went to that specific meeting as my first one. Made some connections that have helped me over the past month, and will go back when I can.
Five stars! The Fort Wayne Real Estate Investors Association (REIA) is a great place to learn and network with like-minded people. We have gained valuable knowledge, contacts, and friends through these monthly meetings. Highly recommended for both new and experienced investors. I would give REIA six stars if I could find out how. Billy Howard
I think the REIA covers a vast amount of great knowledge; it’s an informational highway. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions in a safe environment and find hidden deals right in your own backyard. It’s a great way to promote yourself to have a successful future. Kolin Young
