Do you want to connect with other women investors but aren’t sure where to start? We understand how you feel! For years, men dominated the real estate investment industry making it difficult for women to find each other and connect. However, we believe, as women, we find more success when we help each other.
That’s why we started Real Estate Investing Women (REIW). We wanted to create a community of likeminded female real estate investors to help each other learn and grow in the industry. While we offer excellent training opportunities and online resources, some of our favorite resources are our live events, like Lunch and Learn for Women in Real Estate Investing.
If you want to grow your real estate investing network and knowledge, the REIW lunches and retreats offer a wonderful place to start. Join our supportive and informative community this year to reach your full real estate investing potential.
What is a Real Estate Investment Support Group?
A real estate investment support group comes in many different forms. Thanks to the internet, real estate investors now can connect from anywhere. The goal of a real estate investment support group is to build your network and learn from other investors.
Some groups, like with REIW, offer specialized membership based on certain interests or qualifications. For example, we offer support for female investors. However, some groups are geographically centered, while others may form around types of investments or the size of your business.
Overall, a real estate investment support group aims to build relationships between investors for the benefit of the individual and the group. At REIW, we believe our women’s support group benefits women investors by encouraging the unique qualities women bring to real estate investment.
Why Connecting with Other Women Investors Matters
If you are new to real estate investment, you might wonder what a group specific for women has to offer. At REIW, we have over 35 years of experience in real estate investing. We’ve successfully navigated this male dominated industry that didn’t always offer an even playing field.
Even in today’s more equal business climate, women face certain issues and challenges. These common challenges include: securing funding, network participation and even representation in leadership positions.
Women have the right skills and abilities to succeed in real estate investment. Plus, we have our natural instinct and empathy that works as a sixth sense to find the right investments and connect with buyers and sellers on a personal level.
Connecting with other female investors matters because we can learn from each other. We can also help encourage and build up confidence to continue through obstacles and setbacks. Overall, when women network, doors open and wealth grows.
How to Find a Group in My Area
At REIW, we often host networking events in Florida. We also host training retreats several times each year. These events create face-to-face interactions that lead to trusted business relationships.
A quick internet search for your area should produce a list of networking groups. However, if you don’t have a group specific for women investors in your local area, REIW offers online resources and community. Also, consider attending one of our weekend retreats to build that personal connection with other women investors.
Networking Benefits Women Real Estate Investors
One of the biggest benefits of women specific networking groups is the increase in confidence. Often, real estate conferences and meeting have few women in attendance. This underrepresentation can feel intimidating and isolating. Connecting with a women’s only group demonstrates that women do succeed in real estate investing.
Also, women often feel more pressure than men to prioritize family obligations. Women in business environments sometimes find themselves put into a box. At REIW, we know that women come with a variety of backgrounds and lifestyles. It doesn’t matter if you are married, single, a mom, a retiree or a new college graduate. We welcome women in all stages and phases of life and business. Our goal is to find where we have common real estate interests and support each other.
Join a real estate investing group for women to find the understanding and support you want to build your investment business. We want to help you succeed without the bias women often face in the marketplace.
Understand the Resources to Grow Your Business
At REIW, we not only offer networking opportunities, we offer a variety of resources to help you grow your real estate investing business. From developing a business plan to securing funding and more, we offer insight and knowledge on the best strategies to move forward.
Learn from free resources, like blogs, eBooks, videos, podcast and social media posts. We also offer paid training for investors that are ready to take your business to the next level. However, we feel our live events offer an excellent starting point to connect and learn more about REIW.
