with Don DeRosa, Dustin Griffin & a Local Panel of Real Estate Experts

Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge. This month,
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $20 or Pay $25 at the Door.

As 2018 starts to wind down and come to an end, many of us are looking back on 2018, reflecting on our successes and mistakes and getting refocused and re-energized about 2019. Did we achieve everything we wanted to this year? If not, why not? Will 2019 be better?

If you have taken the time to look back on 2018 compared to where the real estate market is today, you’ve probably started to notice some changes. Are we still in a sellers market? Are some some areas and price ranges hotter than others? Are days on market going up or down? Do you know what’s going on and where the market is headed?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions, don’t sweat about it. Instead, join us at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on Monday, December 10th from 5PM-9PM at 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA with Don DeRosa, Dustin Griffin and a Panel of Local Real Estate Experts.
