How We Server Our Members:
MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS
Our meetings are the heart and soul of MassRealEstate.net. Main meetings are held monthly in Peabody, MA. Every month you have the opportunity to attend a workshop, receive an in depth market update presentation, network with your fellow Investors and our Business Associates plus…hear a guest speaker. There is ample time set aside for networking. Many of our Business Associates elect to participate in a “trade show” like forum and host a table. This makes it easy for you to identify the business and experts you need to discuss your issues with and craft a solution. There is a community table where members can put flyers for properties they own or control and wish to sell.
The general session includes a guest speaker that is an expert in a specific area of Real Estate Investing. Come early and learn from experts on a specific topic in our 5:15pm workshop. There is no other organization in Massachusetts that brings individuals and organizations interested in investing in Real Estate together with the business community that supports them and this happens every month! Create your network and support group that will help make you successful! There is no charge for members. Guests are only charges $25. Which can be credited to an annual membership of $99. Light refreshments are served.
