About Great Lakes REIA:


The Great Lakes Real Estate Investors Association, LLC is a nationally affiliated group based in the Cleveland area.  Founded in 2011, this group is under new leadership effective July 2021.  We welcome seasoned investors as well as those new to the business.

Great Lakes REIA is not your typical association. Talented, driven, principled and success-oriented people who are passionate about this business have come together simply because they are motivated to help one another achieve their highest levels of success.

Our group focuses on the power of Knowledge, Networking, and Education in an effort to keep investment property owners operating ethically and with an elevated standard of how we do business in our communities.  Surrounding yourself with like-minded people is the best way to identify successful investment strategies and work through challenges as they arise.


We firmly believe there is strength in numbers and through coordinated efforts we are able to represent the voice of landlords in NE OH through legislative advocacy.

We provide an educational platform to help our members grow their businesses. Our members have higher operating margins than industry average. This higher level of success is not by accident, it is due to effective implementation of knowledge. Knowledge that is gained via meetings and networking. 

Aside from education we provide our members with a one stop shop for finding team members. From Realtors to Lawyers to Contractors, to Installers, to Title Companies we bring industry experts to a single place so you don’t have to search for people who specialize in Real Estate needs. 

Benefits, we have developed relationships with Fortune 500 Companies all the way down to local sole proprietors. Look at the benefit section to see some of the discounts that are available to our members.


Great Lakes REIA encourages our members to become involved in public life, to become knowledgeable about issues impacting their businesses and the real estate market, and to support initiatives that promote and ensure a healthy and sustainable real estate market.

Great Lakes REIA is dedicated to keeping our members informed about new and proposed laws in OH while fighting to protect the rights of real estate investors. Because policies at the federal, state and municipality level change so often, it is nearly impossible for real estate investors to keep abreast of the new laws. That's why membership in Great Lakes REIA is so important. We keep you up to date on changes that you need to be aware of.

Working with the government through Great Lakes REIA, you will become part of a much stronger team that can communicate your concerns more effectively than any single individual. We need your input and involvement to build a strong grassroots presence!


We believe that associations play a tremendous part in the health of a community. Great Lakes REIA specifically supports and strengthens Northeast Ohio's communities by educating and informing investors that in turn bring vitality to the community with rehabbed properties and incoming residents.

Additionally, Great Lakes REIA participates with other community organizations and associations to provide strength, support and resources to the community our members serve. They give their time, expertise, funds, and sweat equity to the communities we work and live in.

While our members who participate may receive some payback in the form of great t-shirts or maybe a box breakfast or lunch, the real payback is the bonding and the common knowledge that we are doing something good for others.

Our members demonstrate their commitment to their work by living our common goal of making communities better through associations.
