  What you need to know!

Letter from the President

    Where did the summer go? I hope everyone had some great summertime getaways and enjoyed the warm weather with family and friends. It goes so fast! Welcome back to the start of another year of meetings with interesting and informative topics and speakers. We have our schedule set for the remainder of the year but as always we like to hear from the members on what topics they are most interested in and in need of training.

  Our Annual May banquet was fantastic as always. I hope you all got to enjoy it. A big thanks to Muffy and all the volunteers that worked so hard making it happen. The food was great and the prizes were plenty! Our May banquet is also our last membership meeting of the year where directors and officers are voted in and also any new board members. I would like to welcome Jeff Peterson and Todd Johnson to the board as new board members. We are glad to have them! Anyone interested in volunteering their time at our general meetings or special events please contact me or any other board members.

A big Thank you to Winnebago County Circuit Clerk Tom Klein and Tom Lawson for holding a
special training session for E Filing at Midway Village in June of this year. It will be interesting to see how E filing works. I have not done one yet but like the fact that I won’t get writer’s cramp filling out the forms anymore. This is a topic that we will probably touch on in the upcoming meetings as it is so new.

The Rockford Apartment Association says goodbye to one of its long time members. Steve O’Rourke or as we knew him Steve Charles age 69 who passed away July 6 th 2018. Steve was married to his wife Audrey for 44 years and had 2 sons. Steve was always at our meetings. He was very charismatic and loved being part of the RAA. I’m sure you all know who Steve was. We will miss him very much!

Our first meeting of the year is Tuesday September 18 th 2018 and our Topic will be “Getting Started in Rental Real Estate” Our speaker will be Rick Davis from Stateline Property Management. Rick will be talking about all the steps you need to take buying Real Estate, what you need to know before you buy and what you need to know maintaining that Real Estate. This meeting will be good for new property investors but also good for investors that have been in the business for a length of time. There will be a lot of information as Rick is very experienced as a Real Estate investor and Property manager. Don’t miss it!

Thanks, and hope to see you all there!

Karl Fauerbach, RAA President
