AMA IRO Meeting

  • This event has passed.

This is our first casual meeting designed to be have a wealth of information on almost every aspect of apartment ownership, management and investment strategy.  After 20 years of working hand and hand with apartment owners in our brokerage, we’ve learned lots, and happy to share.  However, this casual style get-together will have no formal presentations.  We want to know what you want to know and ALSO, we hope you will be willing to share your insight.

We really hope you can attend and help us with meeting.  It should be fun and worth your time.  If you are not able to attend, let us know if there is anything we can help with outside the meeting.
