The purpose of this informal meeting is to have an open-ended discussion about real estate investing with other real estate investors and professionals in Korea. Whether you're an experienced investor or just getting started, this is an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals, discuss real estate investment strategies, and educate yourself about the real estate market in Korea (or abroad).

The meeting will be held at Artreon TOZ in downtown Sinchon. Artreon TOZ is a beautiful meeting space on the 14th floor of a larger cultural complex housing cinemas, an open theater, and a gallery.

We will be using a conference room equipped with a whiteboard, marker pens, a TV monitor, and cable connectors so that you can hook up your laptop to the monitor (if needed). The cost of using the space is 5,000 won per person (payable to TOZ) for 2 hours and includes unlimited coffee, tea, and soft drinks


The topic for this meeting is working with real estate agents in Korea. What's your experience with real estate agents? How do you know if a real estate agent is legitimate? How can you distinguish a good real estate agent from a bad one? How do agents get paid? How are commissions calculated? Who pays? Is it negotiable? Who do they represent: Buyer or seller? What questions should you ask a real estate agent? What should you look out for?
