Why Should You Become a Member?

In the business world there are limitless opportunities for those who seek them out. Finding a method to successfully invest and to receive a return on that investment is one of the oldest principles taught by financial advisors. Real estate investments have the reputation for helping investors to create large amounts of wealth. However, large returns also normally indicate a higher amount of risk.

How can you mitigate that risk? How do you get started investing in real estate? What types of financing are available to those who want to invest? What are the rules and regulations that you need to know to get involved?

This is where joining REIA NYC (Real Estate Investing Association) Mastermind & Training can help. A REIA is a group of like-minded individuals who are investing in real estate now. They are aware of the laws, best practices, and have invaluable experience to share. Joining REIA NYC is also a fantastic way to network and to create future business relationships.

Professional Housing Provider (PHP) Program



REIA NYC is proud to participate in the National Professional Housing Provider program. The National Professional Housing Provider (PHP) designation is a nationally recognized education-based certification program designed for Real Estate Investors to recognize the high level of knowledge and professionalism among the holders of this designation. It is sponsored and overseen by the National Real Estate Investor’s Association (NREIA).

Why obtain the PHP designation?

Only persons completing the educational requirements will be permitted to hold themselves out to the public as a Professional Housing Provider. The designee will be recognized in the form of an award certificate, pin and the right to use the designation. He or she should recognize that having a basic education in the topics outlined below will increase his or her ability to reach his goals in real estate investment. In addition, the PHP program raises investors’ level of professionalism and status in the eyes of the public and government. It also aids in encouraging legislators to think of educated investors as a larger group for political action.
