After attending multiple conferences around the country, Brie Schmidt and John Casmon realized there was a need to bring a no-pitch, education-based, networking event to Chicago.

Brie Schmidt is the managing broker at Second City Real Estate, a boutique real estate agency focused on investors. She is also the co-founder of Chicago Real Estate Investors Meetup and Brie was able to scale her portfolio with investors she met at a conference in San Francisco.

John Casmon is the founder of Casmon Capital Group, working with passive investors to control a portfolio worth $70MM. He hosts the Target Market Insights podcast and the Chicago Multifamily Club. John partnered on his first large apartment deal with investors he had met at an event in Denver.

The impact of these events were clear, so they decided to create the Midwest Real Estate Networking Summit to positively impact others with their investing.
