Mid-Atlantic Real Estate Investors Association

Our Origin:

A while back, a handful of real estate investors in the Baltimore area knew there was a better way to network with fellow investors without feeling like we were being “taken” by some unscrupulous and predatory “real estate operators” in our area. We shared similar stories about what it was like to get started as real estate investors and how it seemed we couldn’t trust anyone to help us get quality real estate investment information. We would attend investor meetings around town to gain knowledge, but we just felt like there was no existing investor group or club that was addressing our needs for quality, integrity, and honesty in dealing with beginning and experienced real estate investors. We decided to change this situation and form a group of like-minded investors–and thus–we created the Mid-Atlantic Real Estate Investors Association.

Our Mission Statement:

MAREIA is an organization that promotes high standards of professionalism for real estate investors through the nationally recognized PHP Education program, Encouragement through networking and the exchange of ideas, and a strong sense of personal and professional Ethics, individual integrity and community involvement.

Giving Back

Mid-Atlantic Real Estate Investors Association - Family

MAREIA and its members have organized a “Giving Back” Program, originating in 2002, that aims to conduct several charitable projects a year that provide a community service or benefit a charitable cause. From time-to-time throughout the year, the Giving Back Program will focus on a charitable project to assist. When a call to community service comes, MAREIA wants to be there.

For more information, or to find out how you can help MAREIA make Giving Back projects successes, please contact Larry Adler at 443-738-3600 or

Our Mission
Rebuilding Together repairs homes and revitalizes communities in Baltimore City and Baltimore County. By mobilizing a volunteer workforce, Rebuilding Together ensures that low-income homeowners, especially those who are elderly, disabled and families with children, live in greater independence in warmer, safer and drier homes.

Rebuilding Together was founded in 1989 as a response to the growing needs of low-income homeowners in the Baltimore area. We are part of a national network of 255 Rebuilding Together affiliates. As the nation’s largest volunteer organization dedicated to preserving and revitalizing low-income houses and communities, Rebuilding Together is proud of its role in preserving America’s housing stock and providing vital assistance to the people who have no place else to turn.

Our organization has refurbished over 900 homes of low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners in the greater Baltimore area. This effort represents over $5 million in value. Our program, which is planned and run almost exclusively by volunteers, is able to significantly leverage the donations of our sponsors.

Our primary activity each year is Rebuilding Day which occurs the last Saturday of every April. On that day, we mobilize over 800 volunteers to repair approximately 50 homes in two neighborhoods – one in Baltimore City and one in Baltimore County. In addition to the home renovations, we also undertake one or more community projects in each location. Our neighborhood focus allows us to not only impact individual homeowners, but also provide a significant, noticeable improvement to the community at large.

Volunteer benefits:

  • Be part of a large-scale, highly visible community volunteering event.
  • Have an immediate positive impact on the life of a low-income homeowner—you will see the results of your hard work!
