Lee Yoder was practicing physical therapy when he realized his true passion was building his own business and investing in real estate. He took massive action to quickly build a portfolio with several small apartment buildings.

In this episode, Lee shares how you can maximize the impact of becoming part of a local REIA as he discusses the benefits of being in one – from education, networking, and overall career success.

Key Takeaways:

“There’s a lot of people in my city that are really into real estate. It’s comforting; it’s a good feeling to see that there are a lot of other people doing what you’re trying to do. It gives you a little more confidence. There’s just a community about it. So, you don’t feel alone.” – Lee Yoder  

“Getting a really good bunch of education and networking with a lot of people, just kind of talking together and brainstorming and working towards a similar goal before doing it separately, it’s just really powerful for me. It gave me a lot of confidence.” – Lee Yoder  

“I have nothing against coaching programs, paid to coach, paid mentorship. I probably would have done it, but I just didn’t have to because I had the REIA.” – Lee Yoder  

“Take small steps. Decide how bad you want to get into the space and how much you want to have success. It gets easier over time.” – Lee Yoder
