5 Ways To Get The Most Of Your CIREIA Membership
“So That It Makes You Money While Paying For Itself”


Premier Real Estate Investment Group across Central Indiana

Central Indiana Real Estate Investors Association (CIREIA CLUB) is the largest and most-trusted real estate investment group in Indiana that has continuously helped investors for more than 30 years.  Our passion lies in providing value-loaded networking and education for real estate investors and anyone who wishes to enter the real estate industry.   At CIREIA, integrity and high ethics are interwoven into everything we do and within our community.  Our commitment is to help our members be the ‘gold standard’ in our industry.


STARTING MAY 1ST, 2019 WE HAVE A NEW LOCATION FOR MAIN MEETINGS AND WORKSHOPS.   JOIN US AT 6767 E Washington St, Indianapolis, IN.  46219.      (It’s the former Farm Bureau training center at the 465/Shadeland Exit.  Tons of easy parking on site.  Use the west side door for entry.))

May-July, we will be rehabbing so meetings will be dusty, but this is a great time for you to see what happens when renovating a commercial property.   The front building – IRVINGTON EVENT CENTER is 12,000 square feet.  4,000 sq ft will be converted to OFFICE SUITES in partnership with OUTHOUSE COworking.  And 8,000 square feet will be the CIREIA RE Campus plus event spaces available to rent.  If you’re looking for an office space or a place to hold an event, give Vickie a call at 317-670-8491.

Thank you Dave Short and CIREIA Investors for making this next step of the dream come true.

NOTE:   Sub-group meetings are organized by local experts and their meetings may OR MAY NOT be at this new location.  Be sure to check the calendar of events for venue and times. 

SECOND NOTE:  We have a building full of high end office furniture for sale.  It’s in great condition and CIREIA members get special pricing.  If interested, call Vickie at 317-670-8491    ((shelving, desks, credenza, dividers, tables, chairs, and more))

Monthly Main Meeting

Networking and Education To Success

Indy is a top 5 investment area on many national lists.  Because of that, our market has soared and CIREIA has grown in leaps and bounds to answer the educational needs of local real estate investors.  

Join us each month on the First Thursday of the month for local and national speakers and panels.   Networking 5:30-6:30.  Buy/Sell/Trade your properties 6:30.  Meeting and panel start after Buy/Sell/Trade.  After-the-meeting networking 8:30-9:00. 

#CIREIA  —  Education, Information, Collaboration, Legislation


People become RE Investors for many reasons:  develop a business that you own and control, create financial and personal freedom, add RE Investing as a second income stream to supplement your current job, create a business that can be a legacy for your children…..  Through networking, classes and educational events, CIREIA has members are willing to help new investors learn the strategies and tips in the business.


We’re a community of local investors, rehabbers, wholesalers, Realtors, attorneys, accountants, landlords, contractors, and other real estate entrepreneurs who help each other through networking, sharing our contractors, sources, successess and failures.  


Success and failure

Learning can be hard.  Mistakes can be expensive.  New investing strategies can be hard to decipher.  Without coaches, mentors and networking partners, this business can discourage a lot of investors.  

At CIREIA, we are all real estate entrepreneurs and we recognize that we can all succeed faster when we learn together and share our knowledge as a community devoted to helping each other succeed.
