Went to a meeting last night and it was great atmosphere full of knowledge being passed around. I was impressed so my wife and I joined today. I can already tell it will be awesome to be around like minded people!

-Dev Shafeek

What a warm welcome! As someone who is very new to real estate investing is was refreshing and enlightening to be part of a meeting with LIREIA. Melissa Shea (President) has a very down to earth approach and truly wants to help you succeed. I give LIREIA two thumbs up.

-Mark Arroyo

Had a wonderful experience at LIREIA meetings. If you are looking to invest or just curious as to what possibilities are out there on Long Island then this is the place to go and the people to know!

-Shania Harry

My wife and I have gone to many different meetups pertaining to this field but always leave disappointed as we did not learn anything new though there was plenty of hype of new information then hit you with a price tag later. With LIREIA and the event we attended last night, for the first time, both my wife and I felt as we learned something. Not only did we learn but we were with other like minded individuals that want to succeed and do things the right way. Melissa and her team are full of positive energy and you will from the start feel the passion they have when they help and educate you and even give you advise based on their experiences. I highly recommend and challenge those that want to bring their own business to the next level to attend the next meetup and see for yourself on how it will help you grow

-Esaul Caraballo

Great place to be. Awesome information sharing and networking opportunities.

-Mutiu Babatunde

Very honest and helpful. I will definitely come back to see Melissa and her staff. They are very experienced in what they do. Can’t wait to learn more from them.

-Julio Fragosa

The BRRRR training far exceeded my educational goal for today. There was an active and informative group of students attending this class, the instructor was excellent and I look forward to joining with them as a new LIREIA Member soon.

-Robert Rousseau

Prior to joining the LIREIA, I very sadly & regrettably paid $30,000 for a national R.E. investment program that promised much and delivered absolutely nothing!!! For a fraction of the cost, I joined the LIREIA approximately 2 years ago and have had some amazing success. I can't express enough the value of the education I have received as a LIREIA member! I would highly recommend this organization to anyone who is serious about investing in real estate. This is a great place to interact and network with like-minded people who will be instrumental in encouraging you in achieving your R.E. investment goals!

-Lolita Mitchner

Melissa is Awesome. Staff is excellent. It’s always a great learning experience and incredibly knowledgeable education full of networking, resources, and opportunities to invest.

-William Ardolino

LIREIA is a phenomenal organization. I went to the mentor orientation and was amazed at the level of professionalism and the relevant information that can be utilized to be successful as a real estate investor right away! Melissa shows to be a lead by example mentor and there are people that I met who are already genuinely benefiting from the mentor program.

-Gordon Chrichlow

Melissa is a wealth of knowledge relating to Real Estate Investing. She is particularly effective in structuring and financing deals. The meetings, seminars and apprentice programs are packed with information from experienced speakers. In addition, all these events are great sources of networking opportunities.

-Ed Fitzmaurice

This is a very welcoming association of knowledgeable and experienced people. They put much time and energy into this association and are dedicated in their goal of assisting individuals and groups in real estate investing. They are very knowledgeable and forthcoming in their investing experiences, both positive and negative experiences. A very useful resource.

-Peter Ryan

LIREIA has a genuine way of making everyone feel welcome, from the investors just beginning to the very experienced well established investor. Melissa has created an environment where members are able to learn together, invest together, grow together, and succeed together. I am excited to have joined this association where I don't feel like just a student, but also a teammate. The sincere, humble, and inviting ambiance is unparalleled by any professional organization have I been part of in the past. I look forward to continuing earning, learning, and investing as part of this group.

-Meagan Slotnick

My membership in LIREIA has been a tremendous experience since joining the group. Having the opportunity to network with a group of awesome individuals at the general meetings, the monthly workshops and through the Mentoring Masterminds program, I have learned so much and it has strengthened my resolve to really want to succeed in real estate investing. Thanks to Melissa Shea for her support and guidance, I have taken the necessary action steps to achieve great success in such a short period of time that I didn’t think was possible. The whole experience has been terrific for me and I highly recommend others to join us going forward.
