Meets Tuesday, August 20th at NOON at
3702 Sandy Shoals Ln, Decatur, GA 30034 (map)
This month, on Tuesday, August 20th at Noon, the Onsite Renovation Group meets at 3702 Sandy Shoals Ln, Decatur, GA 30034 (map). This project is fairly far-afield for our humble group, but it’s a great opportunity to see what a ‘lightweight’ project looks like. Paint, carpet, and some fresh cabinets take this newer-construction project from a clunker to real estate gold.
The Atlanta REIA Onsite Renovation Group (ORG), led by Aaron McGinnis of Craftbuilt Properties, is an new educational and networking group that focuses on the acquisition, renovation and retail resale (fix and flip) of single family residential homes inside the I-285 perimeter and the in-town neighborhoods. The purpose of this group is to allow both new and experienced rehabbers and investors to meet, network and share knowledge and experience with “hands on” access to real property. The Onsite Renovation Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at NOON at an active renovation site, build site or rental property which will vary from month to month. There is currently no charge to attend these meeting.
Hosted by Reggie Jackson & Gordon Catts
Please Note the New Meeting Location Below
The Atlanta REIA South Monthly Meeting, run by Reggie Jackson and Gordon Catts, is held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM at the Piccadilly Cafeteria (New Meeting Location) located at 2449 Godby Road, College Park, GA (map).

We hope you will come out and eat, network, learn and have fun with us!
