Join other Pasadena-area real estate investors at our For Investors By Investors meeting which is usual the second Thursday of each month. The Pasadena FIBI group provides an environment for intimate and informative round-table peer discussions on relevant topics and to provide feedback about current deals that members are working on. The second half of the meeting usually includes an update about the economy and what that means to us as investors in today’s financial environment. All FIBI meetings are based on a NO SELLING format, allowing investors—whether seasoned or just starting out—to be free to share about their real estate passions without being bombarded by sales pitches.  If this sounds like you, please come to our meeting on Thurs., April 11th, at the Courtyard by Marriott on 180 North Fair Oaks Avenue. Arrive at 6:30 for our 7pm meeting to take advantage of the early networking opportunity and build your team of knowledgeable professionals that can support your investments.
