Join KREIA and Get Started in Real Estate Investing

If you've been dreaming about reaching financial freedom, turn your dreams into reality and take action. Join KREIA and find out how you can make quick piles of cash by wholesaling or flipping houses — and how to build lifelong cashflow and financial freedom by owning rental property. Right here in Louisville, Kentucky.

Real estate is the path by which most folks achieve wealth, and KREIA is full of local real estate investors who are working at different stages on the path. Some are taking their first baby steps toward their first deal. Others have hundreds of rentals in their portfolio. Are you just looking to be financially free? It doesn't take a ton of rental houses to enable you to quit your job and maintain your current lifestyle — probably less than you think. We can help you on your journey.

Our goal is to help ordinary guys and gals get ahead — because that's who we are and what we're doing too. We like to meet, we like to eat, and we love to talk about real estate. If that is something you like, come to KREIA! Everyone is welcome.

KREIA is a networking club that helps investors at every level by offering:

  • Monthly meetings. This is the main event, headlined by one or more experts who spend about two hours speaking to members, educating and updating them on a specific aspect of investing. Questions from the audience are welcomed! A buffet meal is provided. There is also an "early meeting," during the half-hour or so before the buffet line opens, where we invite another expert to hold a quick seminar, often related to the main meeting topic.
  • The L.O.T.S. Program, where we Learn On The Site. L.O.T.S. is like a cross between an open house and a house-flipping mini-workshop. On the Tuesday following the main meeting, one of our active investors will host an open house at his or her current rehab/flip project and talk about how the deal was acquired, describe what all went into the rehab, offer a breakdown of expenses, and share how much they hope to profit. You get to tour the house and inspect everything: It's like going behind the scenes of your favorite house-flipping TV show. L.O.T.S. events are for active members only, and a free lunch is provided.
  • Discounts and cost-saving opportunities. KREIA is part of a national group of real estate associations that has negotiated discounts with companies such as HomeDepot, OfficeDepot and more. The savings you can get by being a KREIA member could pay for your membership many times over.
  • Newsletters. Once a month you'll be mailed a newsletter containing educational articles, a preview of upcoming events, and advertisements from companies that offer products and services especially for real estate investors. Ask about KREIA discounts, because many of our advertisers offer them!
  • Private Facebook group. Got a question you need answered right now and can't wait until the next meeting? Ask it in our closed Facebook group. Our members are very responsive — often you'll find several answers to your question within minutes of you posting it. Many members use the Facebook group to get recommendations on plumbers, electricians, drafting services, etc. Some use it to post their wholesale deals. If you're an active KREIA member who's not taking part in the Facebook group, you're missing out! (To join, active KREIA members who are already on Facebook can go here and click the Join button. You'll need to be approved before you're given access.)
  • Networking opportunities. Every time two or more investors meet, there's a discussion of who has which properties for sale and who is looking for more houses. Contractor recommendations are exchanged. Many successful folks at KREIA found and sold their first deals by networking with other investors.
  • More monthly events! KREIA offers these regular events for active members to meet up, share a meal, socialize, network and learn from each other:
         » Lunch & Learn
         » KREIA Happy Hour
         » Indiana Subgroup Luncheon
         » KREIA CASHFLOW Game Night

KREIA's main meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of the month, January to October, at Woodhaven Country Club off Watterson Trail: 7200 Woodhaven Rd, Louisville, KY 40291 (view map). It's about half a mile from the Bardstown Road-Watterson Trail intersection.

Here is a timetable for what you can expect at main meetings: Doors open a little after 5 p.m.; the early meeting starts at 5:30; the buffet line opens between 6 and 6:15; members and advertisers go to the microphone to make property and vendor pitches during dinner; and the main meeting presentation starts at around 7 p.m.

Be sure to introduce yourself to your table-mates — you can make valuable contacts over dinner and at the bar.

KREIA's annual membership fee is $125 per person. If you have a business and would like to join as an advertiser, we offer five vendor membership levels.

There is a $20 admission fee per member at main meetings: this pays for rental on the meeting hall and for the catered meal, and is required even if you do not plan to eat. Guests are welcome to attend our main meetings to try us out and see if we're a fit before joining. The admission fee for guests and all non-members is $30 per person.

Want to contact KREIA? The best way is by sending email to Are you on Facebook? You can also send us a message from our public page on Facebook. Snail mail can be directed to P.O. Box 91225, Louisville, KY 40291.

Want to volunteer with KREIA? KREIA is a nonprofit organization that's run completely by volunteers. Want to help? We'd love some more help! Please inquire at the door on main meeting night.

COMING UP AT KREIA: At the next main meeting, held June 28, attorney Harry Borders, of Borders & Borders, will be the featured speaker. He's going to talk about contracts — and how you can write them to best serve your side of the deal. Harry is experienced in crafting contracts and documents for the wide variety of creative deals real estate investors find themselves involved in (owner financing, lease option, land trusts, joint ventures, etc.), so this is a great opportunity to pick his brain.

The early-meeting speaker will be Jay Bowman of 60 Day Realty, who'll talk about how to save more money at closing.  (Kentuckiana Real Estate Investors Association) does not give legal, tax, economic, or investment advice.
