Biggest Investment Event of the Year Coming Up in 10 Days!!!

The REI EXPO is coming once again to the Metroplex.  It will be held this year at the Hurst Convention Center on January 26th - 27th.  I had the privilege of attending this event last year and I found it to be the most educational and resourceful gathering of real estate professionals than I have been to in the past.  There are over 30 classes taught by industry professionals on any topic that you could possibly imagine.  The lectures range from leveraging capital to maximize ROI, to forming an LLC and everything in between.  Tim Herriage has done it once again and put together an event that is sure to out perform last year's Expo.  Below is the roster of lectures and their speakers:

2013 Dallas / Fort Worth, TX. Jan 26 & 27
