The “AREA” Arlington Real Estate Association of Investors was formed in January of 2006 in Arlington, Texas. It currently has more than 4,700 members on it’s mailing list. Not all members have signed up with meetup at this time. The members are mostly active investors but there are a number of real estate support people who regularly attend.
Dennis Henson, full time investor and inventor of Turbo Bidder*, is the organizer.
AREA’s purpose is to provide a forum for networking with other real estate investors and support people. A free training class is taught at each meeting by an experienced professional real estate investor.
Support materials for our meetings may be found at Real Estate Investor Training.
We also encourage you to join the Real Estate Investor’s Forum and become an active member.
Hope to see you at the next meeting and best of luck with with your real estate investing.
