Our Review Rating by Meetup Visitors:


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. Plus they offer, food, fun and remote learning opportunities and tons of vendor partnerships for money sources or helping you with your deal--all for a really great low annual fee!"

"Best professional membership anyone can ask for: educational, great member support, exceptional speakers, membership fee next to nothing for what you get. Must join if you even think about investing in real estate."

"Very informative organization, great network of people to learn from and exchange leads. REAPS ROCKS!!"

"I owe much of my success in real estate to REAPS. The local market knowledge, the networking, the team building, and education is unsurpassed!"

"The Real Estate Association of Puget Sound has provided me with so much knowledge and education over the past 12 years! I can't imagine how I would have accomplished receiving the vast amount of knowledge that I have received from this amazing organization."

Fun folks and much cheaper way to learn real estate investing than the national promoters who want tens of thousands for similar education. Come check it out!"
