The Hudson County Flippers and Funders Meetup met for an evening of networking on Thursday October 20 at the Zeppellin Hall Restaurant & Biergarten in Jersey City, NJ.
This was an excellent venue. It is a massive beer garden. More than three football fields in size, the interior is huge. The outside patio is also very large and about the size of another football field. The beer garden sits on the side of the Hudson River. It is a short ten minute walk from the Grove Street PATH station and less than five minutes from a Light Rail Station.
Unlike the Sidebar in Union Square, where the Young Professionals Real Estate Network met on October 19, there was plenty of room in the back area. We did not encounter any overcrowding or excessive echoing.
The Hudson County Flippers and Funders Meetup is a dynamic and focused Real Estate Networking Group designed to help members of the real estate community connect with one another. The main focus of the Hudson County Flippers and Funders Meetup is on networking. At each event, attendees have the opportunity to introduce themselves, say what they do, say what if anything they’re looking for, and then announce any opportunities they might have. At each event, guests also have the opportunity to submit their contact info, specialty and who they’re looking to meet, and then after the meeting everyone’s info will be put into a document and emailed out to all who attended.
The Hudson County Flippers and Funders Meetup is organized by Kyle Jasey (https://www.linkedin.com/in/kyle-jasey-768a584 http://kylehardmoney.com .) Kyle is a hard money-lender. He clearly enjoys networking and organizing these groups.
Kyle is a unique, accessible and generous networker. He has built a large and dynamic professional network by hosting four events each month and initiating many win win introductions and relationships. He is relaxed, easy-going and accessible.
Although there was some confusion about the start time, he arrived about ten Minutes after I texted him. Then after another few minutes of confusion with a shift manager, the attendees began to arrive around 7:00 PM. By 8:00 PM, over fifty people were engaged in lively conversations.
This event proved productive in that I met and networked with several high quality entrepreneurs who were also interested in learning what I do.
