About Us


a family

In our increasingly isolated and insulated world, the Flipping America REIA brings people together. Small groups connect with technology and big things happen. If your network is your net worth, a national network must be pure gold-pressed latinum! (You’re welcome Star Trek nerds!) Headquarters is a 925B Peachtree St STE 512, Atlanta, GA 30309. That’s the main drag through Atlanta and while it sounds impressive, it’s really just a box at the UPS Store. But we do check in there nearly every day. Our phone is 404-369-1018 and there’s a bunch of extensions, but that’s thanks to Grasshopper. If you want to email us just click the button below. What follows is a bit about the FAREIA, where we came from, how we formed, and where we are going. This is the “about us” page, right?



We are an Association of Real Estate Professionals coming together to learn from, encourage, and inspire one another. 



The fox that chases five rabbits catches none. We help our members find their best fit and be successful. You have many options, but not all of them are ideal for you.



FAREIA members commit to the highest standards of integrity and professionalism. We know our craft, understand how business is done, and do what we say we will.

“There is at least a thousand ways to make a million dollars in real estate”

remember the past

Since 2015

In late 2015 Roger and Dianna received some disappointing news. Meetup.com was about to shut down their favorite (and only) real estate networking group. They had been attending “Flipping Atlanta” since 2013 and had enjoyed the information and the energy. After failing to get some of the others to take over the group, Roger stepped up and became the organizer. We had 219 members that day. The group grew to over 1300 members that year.

Figuring it out


Growing and Thinking...

At the close of 2019 we had seven groups in Atlanta, over 7500 members all across the Atlanta region. The Wednesday and Thursday meetings were out of reach for many of those not living or working downtown. How could be best serve their needs? We kicked around the idea of rotating locations, but that presented communication and logistical issues. At the same time we realized that many of our members were leaders, organizers, and knowledgeable investors who had much to offer. Perhaps we could reach more of our local members while at the same time providing opportunities for growth and leadership to others. BOOM. The FAREIA was on the way!

Creative Deal Makers - Wednesdays

We met every Wednesday for lunch, real estate conversation, making friends, doing deals.

Flipping America Local - Thursdays

Our monthly meeting evolved into a weekly event - similar to Wednesdays.

The Idea was born...

It was suggested, actually, by our good friend Gordon Catts, co-founder of the Georgia, Atlanta and National REIAs. The Flipping America REIA was conceived in October 2019.
