Our Partners commit to a one-year, renewable affiliation with CIN. Affiliation and entry into CIN begins when you return your signed CIN Affiliate Partner Agreement and billing authorization form, covering the initiation fee and first month's dues.
The Affiliate Partner Agreement takes effect on a mutually agreed upon date and ends exactly one year later, and automatically renews after that. So long as you pay your monthly dues, your affiliation with CIN remains in full force and effect, allowing you to continue to enjoy all the affiliate benefits.
An Affiliate Partner may terminate membership in CIN after the first full year of commitment, upon giving 90-days written notice directly to Founder, Rob Chevez.
Our mission is to train, develop and support our partners in becoming local thought-leaders.
When I started the meetup it was a way to meet new people in the community. Little did I know where this would take us! Today, the CI network contributes 25% of my companies Gross Commission Income. It has provided me the opportunity to find talented people for my business and has increased my profit share within Keller William Realty. In addition, it consistently provides me investment opportunities to grow my wealth and has increased my leadership and public speaking skills. Most importantly, it has enriched my network of awesome people that impact my life and my business. The power is in the network!
I started real estate investing with no experience. Been to several other trainings and groups, but did not really get what I needed to launch my business until I met the CAZA Group in Reston in 2011. With the guidance of Rob and Mark, I started rehabbing part time while still maintaining my full time job as a IT Project Manager. Within 2 years, I replaced my job and now average about 12-15 deals per year. From this experience, I have decided to pay it forward by conducting my own CAZA group in Haymarket, have trained over 200 students through our bootcamp program and continue my business expansion. I give credit to CAZA Reston for getting me started. Thanks CAZA!
