Thank you AZREIA! Your generosity at our November Anniversary Celebration raised 3,000 pounds of food for the Desert Mission Food Bank.  In addition, they also received that night’s cash donations from the “members who forgot their IDs”.  Raffle ticket sales, as well as the annual collection of “I Forgot My Badge” donations provided several hundred dollars to our non-profit community partner, Stardust Building Supplies!   A GREAT BIG THANKS TO YOU!!!

December is about family and the holidays.  It is also the perfect time to focus on networking.  Not just networking in general, but networking with a purpose.  This month, the Phoenix Real Estate Club comes to AZREIA.  Our 5:15 pm workshop welcomes the Phoenix Real Estate Club structured networking.  The main session will focus on Using Tools to Simplify Owning and Operating Rental Property.  Of course, we will have the full Market Update with all new data.  Another meeting not to miss?  Yes!

Using the new tools can go a long way in easing cumbersome tasks while at the same time, doing the task better.  We will explore all of them, plus add in ownership issues you need to be aware of, as well.  Our sister organization, American Rental Property Owners and Landlords Association – ARPOLA, will present this session and challenge you to reconsider how you go about your daily operational tasks and long term ownership considerations.
