Who are we?
A group of Suppliers, Contractors, Nurses, Investors, Realtors, Accountants, Property Managers, Attorneys, Students, Retirees, Sales People, Truck Drivers, Home Makers, Bankers and more, who have been helping each other for over 10 years to grow in the many facets of purchasing, selling, owning & managing real estate. As a diversified group from many walks of life, we are a Non-Profit, Non-Stock organization guided by a Board of Directors dedicated to our Mission to “Provide a trade association for real estate investors for networking, education and community service.”
The National Real Estate Investors Association (NaREIA)
is a 501(c) 6 trade association and a federation of local associations or investment clubs throughout the United States. The “CORE PURPOSE” of NaREIA is to advance and protect the industry of real estate investing while helping real estate investors prosper and add value to their lives and their communities. Their “MISSION” is to support and promote local real estate investor organizations while servicing the interests of the real estate investment industry through networking, education, support, leadership on legislative issues, and promoting professionalism and standards of excellence in our industry to better serve the housing needs of the public. “Incentive based” systems for Investor Members, whether they are nationally administered programs – such as our affiliation with Home Depot and Sherwin Williams – or regional/local programs offered to our members by Chapter Vendor Partners, the result is a mutually-beneficial relationship that creates opportunity for local Chapter Vendor Partners and Investor Members, as well as strengthening the larger regional and national organizations.
NaREIA establishes standards in education, support, national programs, networking opportunities, a code of ethics and the implementation of much needed government affairs programs.
