What Members Say:

"I have been a member of REAPS for the better part of 15 years. My membership had been incredibly instrumental in both launching and improving my real estate investment career. Mentors have been found, mentoring has been given, there have been great speakers (both local, national and international) and courses, and helpful relationships have been made. When I talk to people new to the real estate investment arena, I always point them in the direction of REAPS as it a treasure trove of people, knowledge, and learning. The first meeting is even free."

"When it comes to real estate investing in Seattle, REAPS is my go to! As a non-profit educating association for investors, it has people at the networking events who are friendly and knowledgeable, as well as lots of educational meetings and ways to learn and get involved in deals with partners.
