Suncoast REIA
General Meeting

Tuesday, 4 June 2019


Networking starts at 6 pm
Featured Presentation: 7:30 pm

"House Finding Can Be Easy

Let the Panel of Pros Tell You How"


Presented by: Panel of Pros

The ads make it sound easy: Get rich in real estate!

While real estate is certainly a vehicle to grow wealth and acquire cash flow, new investors often find that there is a lot more to it and that it actually takes both knowledge and work.

Let us make it easier for you.

One of the challenges is that of finding properties that make sense to invest in. Weíre having a panel of experts in wholesaling and house finding for our general meeting on 4 June.

Some people donít know where to begin when it comes to finding houses. Others know how but often find it takes more work, and often more money, than they expected. Rather than spending your resources trying to locate houses on your own, it may make sense to rely on others to help you in the house-finding process.

Some of our panel members can find the properties for you, while others have resources that make it much easier for you to find what youíre looking for yourself. Even experienced investors can find surprise value in some of these resources.

The panel also has the experience and can answer the questions you may have about finding properties, as well as what comes next.

Come prepared to learn. Bring lots of questions.

The panel will include:

Francisco Mago, REI Property FAX, LLC

Francisco Mago is the creator and CEO of In this role, Francisco leads a team of software developer along with all departments needed to make a small business growth. Heís a big believer of customer satisfaction and entrepreneurship.

He got to Miami, Fl. 22 years ago, during the Y2K boom, with his wife. He started off as a computer developer and has been setting up business along the way, including a cellphone store and wholesale.

Francisco is qualified as an information engineer for 25 years. He started REIFax 10 years ago. He was working as a realtor and, he realized that the info provided to realtors was not enough and, definitely not suited for investors. So, thanks to his educational background, he started interviewing investors to create a more valuable source of information that would fulfill their needs.

Nowadays, like the visionary that he is, Francisco realized that everything is moving towards vacation rentals and mobile applications. Thatís why heís created and intooapps accordingly.

Ryan Groff, New Western Acquisitions

Ryan grew up in Coppell, Texas right between Dallas and Fort Worth. At a young age he grew up enjoying sports, the outdoors, and always trying to find a way to make some extra money. Ryan attended the University of Oklahoma where he decided to study Finance and Entrepreneurship. After college Ryan knew he wanted to do something with his life that was flexible, fun, and where his income was determined by the work he put in. He decided to join a relatively new company in the Dallas Fort Worth area called New Western Acquisitions. While in the DFW market Ryan personally acquired over 300 single family homes for New Western and their local investors. As New Western Acquisitions continued to expand Ryan brought his family to Saint Petersburg Florida in 2015, where he assisted in opening New Westerns first office in Florida. With quick success, New Western opened a second Florida office in Tampa, in which Ryan became the broker and general manager. He now helps with continued growth of the company and helps oversee the 30-40 properties that New Western Acquisitions provides the Tampa Bay area every month.

The Investor’s Luncheon

4910 Spruce St.
Tampa, FL 33607

"Idea Sharing Round Table"

Drawing Showing People excitedly engaged in discussion

Presented by: SREIA Members and Guests

We periodically hold brainstorming meetings and have found these to be very popular. Those attending have found them informative and helpful, full of different investors' opinions and valuable advice. Members and guests share their good successes and bad disasters and help each other to do things right the first time (hopefully) and to avoid pitfalls. This interaction is valuable, especially if you are new to real estate investing.

Bring your experiences to answer otherís questions and bring your questions that others may provide answers.

Some ideas for discussion can be, but are not limited to: tenant problems, i.e., notices to evict or cure; collecting money during eviction; rehabbing a house to retail-ready condition; repair or re-roof; should the kitchen stay or go; preventing a/c theft; experiences with options; marketing to sell quickly; foreclosures / short sales; contractors; code enforcement; and much more.

Bring questions to get answers and increase your real estate education.

SREIA Members and Guests purchase their own lunch.
Guests are welcome for a $20 Guest Fee.
Lunch starts at 12:30PM, with the presentation during lunch.
