With a simple idea and from humble beginnings,
The Real Estate Investment Network (REIN) was founded in 1992. Today we are Canada’s most trusted real estate investment education, analysis, research and strategic leadership resource. To date, by leveraging our economic insights and analysis, and using proven strategies taught by REIN, our Members have transacted more than 37,000 properties, representing more than $5.3 billion dollars of real estate.
From our founding over two decades ago in Vancouver, we expanded our community to include five additional major Canadian cities: Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa and Kelowna. Our vision encompasses not only these areas, but with current technology also includes markets across the country, giving our Members access to economic research and analysis in their neighborhood, in their province, and across the nation.
REIN delivers balanced and impartial research and economic insights integrated with relevant and cutting-edge analysis.
We lay out the answers to the fundamental questions of what the research means to real estate investors.
