Early Bird Session 6:30PM

Do you know what radon is? More importantly, how do you know if a house has it? Why is radon a problem? How does it enter your home? When should you take action? How can radon affect my real estate transaction?

Elevated levels of radon in any building can be a serious health concern. Tom Getchman, certified radon testing and measurement professional with St. Louis Radon Test and Mitigation will answer these questions and more.  Join us to learn how to protect your family and your customers from radon, the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer.

Main Event 7:30PM 

TITLE MATTERS - Title & Deeds To Real Estate 

 Does it really matter how we own or who with (Name on title) or take title (Type of Deed) to real estate?

Can't I just leave it up to my title company and attorney to handle those details?

Come and discover what matters and what doesn't and why you should make these decisions and not just leave it up to someone else. STLREIA member Dan Bryan, real estate Investor, broker, consultant and trainer will be showing us the safe-way to hold title to our properties.  

What works best for your situation and what things should I be taking into consideration?

Learn how to make the most of what is available to you! 

How do you hold your titles in regards to:

Privacy (Asset protection) – Do you keep your business private!

What about:

Negotiation with Tenants, Sellers, Buyers, Inspectors…

Purchase Structure (Buying Subject To, Lease Options, Options, Borrowing, Lending)

Joint Ventures (Financing, division of ownership, profit splits, etc.)

Other Benefits (Landlords, flippers, lenders, homeowners)

 You may even want to consider how you hold title to your other stuff… cars, boats, 4 wheelers, stocks and bonds, etc…

Do You Want to Know How To Wholesale?   

Wholesaling Houses is the fastest way to making a six-figure income here in St. Louis. Do you want to know what “wholesaling" is and how you can do it too!  See the excitement involved in getting a $10,000 check in the next 30 days. Chris Kleewein is a local St. Louis guy, and loves the St. Louis area.

Chris is a wholesaler, a landlord, and a coach. Chris wholesales about 50 deals each year and he loves to teach other people how to wholesale also! 

Over the years, he has mentored hundreds of people in their real estate investing endeavors and really enjoys helping other investors on their journey to success.  Chris says the energy and excitement each time a student shares a big payday is contagious and inspiring.

Chris often says, “If you know what to do and how to do it, you can make a FULL-TIME income in real estate, working PART-TIME, even if you already have a full-time job and a family at home…..” Chris enjoys helping people change their lives and find financial freedom through Real Estate.

The STLREIA™ is an excellent organization for anyone who owns investment real estate or wants to own real estate.  There is something for everyone, from the experienced investor to the first time buyer.  The monthly meetings are well run, informative and fun.  There is an excellent mix of speakers from the local experts to the national gurus.  There are also plenty of opportunities to network with those who know more than you, as well as the opportunity for you to share your expertise in mentoring others.  The monthly newsletters are an added bonus and are filled with interesting articles and tidbits. Having been a member of several REIAs in various cities, I highly recommend this one!  Come early to attend the monthly help clinics, and ask about the networking lunches.

It is not often that an organization translates into so many benefits.  However, the STLREIA™ is such an organization.  We joined and have been very pleased. The mini help sessions allow for a broad base of information covering many relevant topics regarding the "joys" of being in the home rental business. Topics can range from great bargains for appliances, materials, or great contractors to how to deal with pets, pest, or poor tenants.  We always enjoy the main speaker as well. We have learned many helpful tips even though we have been in the rental business for 25 yrs. The best part about being a member of STLREIA™ is that all the great tips generally translate into some cost saving measure or a way to increase your income.  And lastly, the monthly newsletter is wonderful. It's a win win situation.  We live 150 miles south of St. Louis and though we can't make every meeting, we find every trip rewarding.

I like the STLREIA™ meetings because there are great speakers who can help you in any aspect of real estate. My mom is a real estate investor and obviously knows much more about real estate than I do but we both get great ideas out of each of the meetings. Since attending my first STLREIA™ meeting I have successfully funded two years of my IRA and bought my first...read more

I like the STLREIA™ meetings because there are great speakers who can help you in any aspect of real estate. My mom is a real estate investor and obviously knows much more about real estate than I do but we both get great ideas out of each of the meetings. Since attending my first STLREIA™ meeting I have successfully funded two years of my IRA and bought my first house. Thank you STLREIA™ for the opportunity to learn more about real estate.
