MnREIA Membership has its Benefits!


Hear from a MnREIA Member's Experience Attending MnREIA Meetings

Yekaterina & Russell Harnois

My husband and I joined MNREIA 2 years ago and I cannot think of a better place to be for any RE investor ever since. Here is our story: 2 years ago we attended one of the RE meetings with some “guy from TV show flipping houses and now in Minneapolis just for one day”.  We had a free dinner, got inspired with all the RE investment ideas they were pitching us and got so excited that we ended up paying 39k for a lifetime membership and promises that they will guide us and support us on our way to become successful RE investors as long as it takes. Yes, we are that “smart”.  After several months of their “guidance”, all it was were attempts to squeeze more money out of us for one-on-one trainings and other services, but no result. We were getting nowhere and were getting frustrated more and more.

Only one thing came out of it that was actually useful. JOIN LOCAL REI GROUPS, they said and so we did.

We joined all available REI Meetups in Minneapolis and this is how we found MNREIA. Other Meetups cannot compare to MNREIA.  You are doing fantastic job attracting people of all backgrounds useful for RE investors. We were able to find wholesalers and got our first deal right after the first MNREIA meeting we attended 2 years ago. MNREIA is where we found contractors, RE agents that know how to work with investors, title, financial and tax services.  MNREIA is where we learned new RE investing strategies and met all our partners. In 2 years we did several flips, found new rental properties, invested jointly with other investors, started to use our IRA money for RE investments and much more.  The best thing about MNREIA - EVERYTHING we ever needed for our ventures was ready for us and waiting either on MNREIA site or at MNREIA meeting. You have a gift bringing talented enthusiastic people together. We were struggling before trying to find partners and deals, but not anymore.  I believe it when I hear that it is biggest RE group in USA and I feel lucky that it is here in Minneapolis. Joining MNREIA changed our life. 2 years ago we were sitting in a room full of people and thought it was big.

This April MNREIA meeting I looked around. It is at least twice as big now than it used to be 2 years ago when we joined, and I realized how blessed we all are to have you here in Minneapolis. There are many RE investor groups if you look on Meetup, but nothing comes even close to MNREIA. Since we joined MNREIA we started to make money and then more money, but most important we made new friends. Having MNREIA by our side made us more powerful and confident RE investors than we ever thought we might be. So, I just wanted to say thank you for making it all happen and hope it will continue.

Mike, please take a look around at the next MNREIA meeting. You are changing lives of so many people for better. We are very thankful for having you in our lives.

Sincerely yours,

Fools, who paid 39k for an advice to join MNREIA, and think that advice is worth every penny thanks to you.

ClearVue Technologies

ClearVue is offering a limited-time 10% discount on the purchase price for National REIA members.

ClearVue’s traps feature Active Beacon Technology that uses bed bugs’ instinctual attraction to Carbon Dioxide to lure them to the traps. After climbing the trap’s angled walls, bed bugs are trapped by a glue floor, unable to escape. The traps are packaged with a sealable plastic bag for No Touch No Escape disposal. You can learn more about the patent-pending design by watching ClearVue’s introductory video (www.bedbugtraps.com/video).

ClearVue Bed Bug Traps can be used in a variety of situations:

  1. Ongoing monitoring to detect bed bugs before a full-blown infestation
  2. Checking a unit during a turnover to verify no bed bugs are present before a new tenant occupies the unit
  3. Protecting tenants who have an infestation as they wait for professional treatment
  4. Validating the effectiveness of professional treatment

Most importantly, ClearVue Bed Bug Traps help your members fight the growing costs and increased legal exposure that can result from bed bug infestations. Results of ClearVue’s trials and testimonials can be found on their website www.bedbugtraps.com/results.

ClearVue bed bug traps are available in a starter package of 2 traps ($11.99), a value package of 12 traps ($65.99), and a bulk pack of 100 traps ($499.99). The traps last for several weeks once activated by the user. Place your order at www.bedbugtraps.com/.
