Our REAPS Commercial meeting is held every month on the 2nd Wednesday at the Bellevue Azteca Mexican Restaurant. Registration is required to attend. Dinner is optional but we designed these meetings so you can come hungry and network with a smaller group of members who live in your community!

If you have never attended one of our events, then just register online and use promo code "guest" to attend your first meeting for free. If you don't register online then please plan to pay $20 at the door when you arrive.

Doors open at 6:00pm for networking, meeting begins at 6:30pm.   

Tonight's meeting will be moderated by Jeff as he interviews Tamar Mar.  Tamar Mar is an entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and proponent of intentional lifestyle design.  With nearly 20 years under her belt working in the start-up and small business arena, Tamar took the plunge to both launch her own business – and invest in others.  She often says that she is the “CEO of her dreams,” and consistently focuses on ways to maximize business opportunities and generate enough passive income to be financially free and curate the lifestyle she and her family desires.   

Tamar has been investing in real estate since she was 19, purchasing her first townhome when she was a sophomore in college, and has owned rental properties for over 15 years. From purchasing homes (sight unseen!) on auction, to fix-and-flips, to large-scale renovation projects, she has a keen eye for evaluating deals for maximum returns.  More recently, with her company The Marota Group, her work has been focused on the acquisition of underperforming multi-family and commercial properties, where she can work with her team to stabilize the assets and accelerate returns for her investors.  She currently owns 115 units, and has raised almost $2 Million from investors.  

Before becoming a serial entrepreneur, Tamar was a successful executive in the start-up arena. As Chief Operating Officer of a New York-based regulatory solutions company in the FinTech space, she helped grow the business into a multi-million dollar company. Later, as President and COO of one of the largest real estate brokerages in Washington, she was integral in guiding the company through a large acquisition and building out new profit centers for the business.  In 2017, she partnered to acquire The Fitness Shop, an established high-end specialty fitness equipment retailer in Washington State, and is currently working on the chain’s strategic rebranding and revitalization.   

A mom to three elementary-aged children, including twins, Tamar finds joy in participating in programs that enhance education and cultivate thriving communities. When she’s not working on her latest venture, she loves traveling, gardening, kayaking, hiking, skiing, playing on the beach, boogie boarding, and pretty much anything where she can enjoy the beautiful outdoors with her family. She also likes smiling. A lot. 

If you have decided to take the plunge into commercial real estate, this may just be the group you have been looking for. If you are new to commercial investing and want to surround yourself with other members making the same plunge then join us. The meeting is a round table format so open discussions are the norm and speakers are rare. Come prepared to share as much as you are prepared to learn. The discussions will be focused on multifamily, office, retail, mobile home parks, etc. Is the grass really greener with commercial? Our commercial group leader, Jeff Hamel, will answer with a definite YES!
