20 Years and Better Than Ever – Party To Follow
It seems like 20 years have flown by since that fateful day in 1996 when a small group of investors formed what has become the most respected and successful REIA in Florida and Miami. This small group of men and women wanted a place to network, talk about deals and above all, learn about real estate investing.
DREIA survived the killer market of 2006 – 2008 when all seemed lost to local investors and many hard money lenders went belly up. At this perilous time more than 60% of the REIAs in Florida simply closed their doors. We persisted and have thrived as evidenced by the standing-room-only crowds we often see at our meetings, sold out workshops, and the most successful one-on-one Mentoring Program in the country.
DREIA’s success is because of people just like you who give us input and attend our meetings. We greatly appreciate your support and contributions. As with many REIAs, DREIA was a member of a national association of REIAs. A few years ago we decided not to renew our membership simply because we differed with the national group’s greatly changed vision.
20 years is a lot of experience in our local markets but what about 100+ years of hands-on doing deals?
That’s the combined experience of the Mentor Team here at DREIA. Dave Dinkel and Nancy Dinkel, directors of our “Change-Your-Life Mentoring Program”, have been investing in South Florida since 1975. Dave himself, not a former student-turned-guru, devotes his time directly with new Mentor students for one-on-one training. Dave personally writes (and constantly updates) all of the written materials and videos provided in our Mentor Program. He’s always there for questions and ready to help with deals. He’s a fountain of resourcefulness and a national treasure.
Add to that over 25 years of my personal investing experience and director Viju Koottungal’s experience of over 16 years and you have an unsurpassed history of hands-on experience and service to the real estate community.
What is most important is that we provide our club visitors with a unique experience, helpful insights and show you the results of real deals being done locally.
You can count on DREIA to bring you local speakers and topics of local relevance, not some national circuit speaker referred by a national association.
What a difference 20 years has made in the local real estate market and it continues to change daily. Whatever happens we will endure and change to meet its demands as we always have.
To Your Health and Wealth,
Jim Pamplin, Viju Koottungal and the entire DREIA Team
