The Company

The Company

Our Mission

To empower people to create financial freedom by providing the opportunities they need to transform their lives.

Our Vision

To own the conversation about real estate investing.

Our Values

Our values reflect what is truly important to us as an organization.

These values do not change from time to time, situation to situation or person to person, but rather they are the underpinning of our company culture.

•  We put the people first
•  We conduct business with integrity and lead by example
•  We take ownership of everything we do
•  We measure, grow, and measure again
•  We pursue growth and innovation through curious experimentation
•  We embrace a sense of optimism, possibility and fun

We are all about helping people transform their lives by leveraging the opportunities available in real estate.
Our family of websites and digital products offer all the resources and services real estate investors need to learn the business, stay up to date on market trends and strategies, find their first or next flip or rental property, fund their purchases, and establish a strong network of professionals to help them succeed in the industry. 

At REI, we have a skilled team of professionals whose sole mission is to make sure the thousands of members in our network have high-quality products and services to create a thriving business.  

Our offerings go beyond websites.

We share content and education, provide spaces that incentivize networking and integrate efficient, on-demand solutions to empower our customers to make the best decisions and do the best deals. We are changing the conversation in real estate investing and simplifying the home buying process along the way.
