Join other Pasadena-area real estate investors at our For Investors By Investors meeting (FIBI) held the third Thursday of each month at 7pm at Courtyard by Marriot, 180 North Fair Oaks Ave. Pasadena, CA. The Pasadena FIBI group provides an environment for active and informative peer discussions, expert presentations on relevant topics and networking. All FIBI meetings support a NO SELLING policy, allowing investors—whether seasoned or beginner—to be free to share their real estate passions without sales pitches.

Each Pasadena real estate FIBI meeting includes brief member introductions intended to identify areas of interest. This leads to the opportunity of industry experts presenting information and experiences on a variety of relevant topics. Open networking sessions are done to enhance the value of coming together to learn. Twice a year FIBI Pasadena includes an Economic update and a review of the current market conditions. Our meetings are fun and engaging, but most importantly informative and memorable.
