West Los Angeles — More than 700 investors from around the nation, and world, united for one day in Los Angeles at the IMAN Cultural Center to listen to the latest news in real estate investing on Saturday, October 22nd.

The 3rd Annual Los Angeles Grand Real Estate Expo offered a full day of complimentary education on a variety of real estate investing topics taught by some of nation’s top industry leaders. The expo was attended by investors from states across the nation, including Utah, Oklahoma, Illinois, Michigan, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and more.

The GRAND Expo also once again attracted an international audience with guests flying in from Mexico, England and Poland just to attend the one-day educational event.

The day was buzzing with excitement as hundreds of investors rushed to secure a seat to hear their favorite educators. Three breakout sessions gave expo guests the option of learning about a variety of subjects throughout the day.

One of the top highlights of the expo was when Rick Sharga, Executive Vice President of ATTOM Data Solutions, took the floor and dived deep into inflation’s impact on the current real estate market.

Sharga also shared insight into his predictions of what to expect in the 2023. His presentation was standing room only while dozens of guests patiently stood by the entire hour to hear him speak.


Other top educators for this year’s GRAND expo, included: Shawn Tiberio, Christopher Meza, Rusty Tweed, Tony Watson, Cliff Gager, Merrill Chandler, David Tedder, Paul Finck, Abbas Mohammed, Amanda Brown, Aneissa Goss, Joe Arias, and others.

More than 50 companies exhibited their products and services to the community, including Frontier Communications, Zoho, Lending One, New York Life Insurance Company, Klaviss, Zinc Financial, Western International Securitas, Fair Trade Real Estate, WRENN, San Diego Creative Investors Association, Retran, Alt Lender Mortgage, AV Fund Group, Prime Equity Mortgage, Landlord Advocates, Payne Pest, Real Success, Retran, Number One Accountancy, plus many other premiere companies.

The three-series GRAND expo has already reached nearly 3,000 investors in person and has united more California investors under one roof than any other REI event in the state.

The event is sponsored by Los Angeles County Real Estate Investors Association, Sam’s Real Estate Club of Los Angeles, the Ventura County Real Estate Investors Association, plus Realty411 and REI Wealth magazines.

The principals of each organization, Lloyd Segal, Sam Sadat and Linda Pliagas, have been friends for over 20 years and have collaborated on numerous smaller projects prior to the start of the LA GRAND Expo series.

Their goal is to increase the attendance of next year’s expo and expand its international presence as a flagship global real estate investor conference.
