About the Santa Barbara Real Estate Investors Association

Posted on Nov 30 2016 - 8:24pm by Lance Edwards

The Santa Barbara Real Estate Investors Association is a great opportunity to help grow your future and add value to your local community and beyond. When we say beyond we mean it! We are a local, national, and global REIA. To educate yourself on real estate investing you really need to be a member of a number of REIA’s and most importantly a local one or two. We don’t want you to go broke in the process so our REIA is FREE.

How can we be a national and global REIA? We put all our meetings on www.YouTube.com/DanRingwald so you can be in North Carolina or China and you still get a lot of what we have to offer.  The video above will give you a good idea of what Dan Ringwald and the SBREIA has to offer.  Of course you will not get the same level of personal networking and you can’t get those all important questions answered.  What you can get is a lot of in depth education from the videos and you can register at our www.Meetup.com/SantaBarbaraREIA group so can do some networking even if you don’t RSVP for a meeting.

We know you are interested in financial freedom and we can help you on your journey. Our main objective is to educate current and future real estate investors. Aspiring investors will get information and the mentoring to enter the investment market. Seasoned investors will have opportunities to network, partner, and find great deals on a local and national level. Contact the SB-REIA President Dan Ringwald at 866-853-0803 with any questions or services you would like to offer.

Our Mission

To bring the best in education, networking opportunities, and deals for investors of all levels through helping our local, national, and global community.


Talk about benefits! Membership to the Santa Barbara REIA is FREE, except for the cost of attending meetings.  What you get for free is access to online training videos of local and national speakers, advertising and promoting your properties, your business, and networking with local, national, and global investors. In fact as an SBREIA FREE member you can list as many properties for as long as you like on www.NHBbig.com.

We have another FREE benefit for our members through our affiliation with the Community Buying Group.  Just click on that link and see all the services they have to offer our SBREIA members for discounts at Sears, Lowe’s, Rent Fast, and much more!

We are also affiliated with the www.NationalREIA.com and enjoying all the benefits they provide.  If you would like the added benefits from the National REIA as a member of the Santa Barbara REIA we are offering it for only $100 per year which according to the NREIA is the lowest price from any REIA in nation. Check out their benefits at www.NationalREIA.com/member-benefits and see all they have to offer. You do have to be a member of some REIA to join. Receive discounts on insurance for vacant properties, Health Insurance, Home Depot, Roto-Rooter, Officemax, FedEx, and more. Roto-Rooter now offers a 25% discount on labor for NREIA members. A labor bill for $10,000 would give you a $2,500 discount.  This will create a savings of much more than $100 per year. Contact Dan Ringwald at 866-853-0803 with any questions for these added benefits and then pay through the NHB LLC PayPal link below and we will complete your membership.


National REIA Membership Benefits for 1 year – $100.00

President: Dan Ringwald – By educating and supporting each member interested in obtaining their personal and financial freedom, through investing, we are building the Santa Barbara Real Estate Investors Association and it’s members.

?resize=100%2C100″ alt=”lance-edwards” width=”100″ height=”100″ />Lance Edwards is living proof of his mantra that you don’t have to “graduate” from single family to multifamily – you can start with multifamily. Lance purchased his first deal (a four-plex apartment) in March, 2003 – nothing down. Over the next 2 years, he went on to purchase 50 units nothing-down on a part-time basis, while working his full-time corporate job. In July, 2005, Lance retired from his 20 year corporate career to start a full-time real estate business that acquires multifamily properties. And he now teaches others how to create faster financial freedom with apartments using none of their own money. Last year, he purchased 10 unit and 50 unit apartment buildings – all nothing down. Just recently, he closed a 56 unit property – again using none of his own money.



Lance Edwards will be covering some of the following below

  • Report: How to Buy and Sell Apartments Using None of Your Own Money
  • Bonus Report: How to Raise Huge Money in Today’s Economy
  • Apartment Wealth Nuggets: Lance’s premier multifamily investing newsletter.
  • Free Webinar Training: Access to Lance’s training series, overflowing with actionable information on buying and selling apartments


Stay at Home – Of course you can stay home and watch the videos but you can’t ask your questions and you can’t do the all important networking for contacts to solve other financial issues.  Attending these meetings also gives you 30 days of FREE Training from me, Dan Ringwald, on any of my businesses which can be seen at SBREIA.com/contact

SBREIA Vendor Tables

We usually have about 4 or 5 vendor tables for vendors to display their business information and meet and greet out members to share their business services.  Vendor tables are $50 each and are about 4′ x 6′ provided by Fess Parker. If you would like to promote your business at a vendor table please can Dan Ringwald at 805-967-6595 to reserve your table before they sell out.  If you are wondering what the Fiesta room and vendor tables look like please see our pictures from our past SBREIA Meetings

The first half hour of our meetings are for our members to network with each other and see what investments strategies are working and what are not. Don’t forget to bring your business cards and any handouts you would like to promote and your list of very important questions.
