Brew City REI Training Cafe Menu 2024

Brew City REI Club is a private social club of impassioned real estate professionals dedicated to real estate investment in Wisconsin and directed by Captain Save A Home LLC. The club is renowned in the local real estate community for delivering purposeful, raw content and for generously sharing a wealth of knowledge about real estate investing in Wisconsin.

As the group grew, Brew City REI Club realized that sometimes you have specific questions and you want to sit down with someone local for an hour to help with your decisions, validate what you do or decide if you should go right or left – and thus, the Training Café was created. There is a specialist for almost every topic you can think of: property management, construction, hard money, self-directed IRAs, etc.

The Brew City REI Training Café is a co-op of training services including workshops, mentorship, and tools. The menu is delivered by members of Brew City REI Club who are VERIFIED experts in the specific area of real estate investing/mentoring that they are teaching. Any member of the club can be a coach; however, there are verification requirements. ONLY members of the club can be a coach and only members can be approved sponsors.

All items provided on the menu should be ordered directly with the coach (contact information is shown). If you are new and have no idea what you want to do, a good start is a coaching call to discuss possibilities depending on your immediate resources.

The intent of the café is that people will have more freedom to get education on their budget from a variety of local experts. By having an array of coaches, we hope it inspires a competitive atmosphere and will keep the platform genuine, ethical, honest and beneficial for all—the foundation from which the Brew City REI Club has built upon.

Rebecca Knox:

EXPERTISE: Wholesaling, Acquisitions, Marketing, Evaluating Deals, Purposeful Networking/Building your Team, Business Management, Acquiring rentals


In 2014, I was introduced to real estate by my husband, Nick Knox, after managing manufacturing plants for a decade. Beyond being a General Manager, I was also a certified ISO9001 Quality Inspector; which nurtured a systems way of thinking. In 2016, I was able to ‘fire’ my boss after my real estate income surpassed my corporate income.

Are you interested in getting started in Real Estate, but don’t know where to begin? I have been called the local “Real Estate Matchmaker” because of my love and ability to create winning relationships and deals along with being resourceful. Nick and I run the Brew City REI Club, Brew City REI Training Café and Wisconsin Contractor & Handyman Club and have a network of thousands of out of state and local investors who are actively participating in the Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, Ozaukee and Waukesha real estate investment arenas.

Want to know more about wholesaling, marketing for deals, business systems or just buying more deals in general? Maybe you’ve closed one deal ‘by accident,’ but are having difficulty keeping deals in the pipeline? I can help with marketing, list ideas, list sources and a variety of ways to get leads – whether your marketing budget is $0 or $10K.

Upon booking a call, a questionnaire will be sent to you to assist in planning the most tailored and effective call/appointment based off your answers. As we discuss challenges, I will keep notes of items that I believe will help you in your journey and will follow up with any action items discussed.

Teresa & Anthony Machi:

EXPERTISE: Acquisitions, Rehabs, Bay View-Cudahy-South Milwaukee-St Francis-Riverwest Neighborhood expert, Self-managing successful rentals, BRRRR strategy, hard and private money lending, building a lending business, long term wealth strategies with Buy & Hold


Anthony and Teresa Machi are a husband-and-wife team with backgrounds in Finance. Teresa began her career in Portfolio Finance at a local Hedge Fund and progressed in her career as a Treasury Manager. Anthony also began his career at a well-known financial institution analyzing Mutual Funds and then worked for a law firm preparing financial reports for the CFO.

Early on in their careers in 2008, they decided they wanted financial freedom and went about that in a conservative manner by accumulating a real estate investment portfolio and receiving passive income while working in corporate.

As they grew, they branched out to fix and flips, wholesaling, and private lending. All strategies have proven to be widely successful and continue to be part of their operations. Today, their main focuses are managing their portfolio of rentals for wealth building as well as private lending.

Brian Meidam:

EXPERTISE: Got an Uncle Sam Hangover? Want to save up to 37% in income taxes?! Brian can help you with structuring your real estate deals using your Self-Directed IRA. He can also teach you about IRA strategies for massive account growth and building generational wealth.


Let’s be real…you could care less about my profile.  What you do care about is WIIFM (What’s In It For Me)! To legitimize myself (sorry, I was told I had to 😊) let me tell you in a couple of sentences about the stuff you really don’t care about anyway and then we can move on to the stuff you care about:

I’ve done a crap ton of real estate deals since 2005.  I wholesale, rehab and flip, have a rental portfolio, I lend money locally, we do short sales, blah…blah…blah!

Now on to the important stuff:

I got tired of Uncle Sam acting like my business partner and taking 40% of everything I made when he did nothing. That seemed crazy to me – so I had to figured out a better way to do this, and I want to share it with you and help you structure your real estate deals in a way that will help you keep what you earn so you can build the long-term wealth that you deserve.. 

So maybe you’re currently in the shoes I was previously wearing…you’re making money in real estate and you’re paying a bunch in income taxes and you’re tired of it. You’re making your Uncle Sam rich and he takes zero risk and pockets a big chunk of your annual income. What if I could show you some strategies that have saved me $100’s of thousands of dollars of taxes?

Or how about this…you’ve been in the game for a while and you keep saying “I’ll start saving for retirement next year” …well next year(s) have come and gone and you haven’t saved jack!  You’re behind the 8-ball and forgot about that whole savings thing. What if I could teach you some strategies to catch up using real estate?

Or maybe you have a bunch of cash to work with in your self-directed account but have no idea how to put it to work for you? Or maybe you’re an active real estate investor, but only have $500 in a self-directed Roth. You’re just starting out putting a few bucks aside, but you know it’s important. What if I could teach you strategies to grow that $500 into $100,000 in 12-months?

Listen, I ain’t no attorney. And I ain’t providing legal advice. I’m providing advice on how to grow your wealth by a crap ton (yes…my word of the week). The problem here is that this information is worth much more than the hourly rate I’m charging – I typically charge a flat fee for the value I’m bringing to the table. You see the rate listed below for an hour and some of you may cringe, while others “get it” and know that their net worth will grow massively with a little investment. I hope you “get it”.

RATE:  $500/hr, 1-hr minimum. MONEY BACK GUARANTEE: You’ll save more than twice the amount you paid me in taxes on your next flip.

TO ORDER: Brian is also open to joint venturing on rehabs (case by case basis)

Debra Hayes, Esq.


  • Landing investment properties at sheriff sales and other not commonly known auctions
  • The residential foreclosure cycle – identifying the high percentage window for direct buy
  • Obtaining private funding for auction purchases and other buys
  • Using your self-directed IRA for your real estate business and other tax-savings tips
  • Experienced Attorney, Investor and Realtor with Premier Point Realty


Can’t believe I’ve been in the real estate arena for 35 years. Time really does fly. My start was as an attorney representing banks in home foreclosures, then commercial foreclosures, added general business litigation and then real estate transactional work. After that, I took a 180-degree turn from court work to design and lead a statewide non-profit that did foreclosure mediations under the court system during the Great Recession. As foreclosures levels got back to normal, I left that position and 100% invested in real estate: first buy was at a Waukesha foreclosure sale – all in at $613,000. My partner and I came out in the black on that one, although we learned that big capital investment also means potentially big risk. We went on the buy 3-5 properties per year to flip or wholesale.

When foreclosure volume began to diminish, the pivot was to private lending to our fellow real estate investor colleagues. As the has business grown, the focus expanded to figure out how to keep more of what was coming in by learning and understanding legitimate techniques to enjoy tax efficiency (i.e., pay only those income taxes that are required). 

Over the years, many people have shared their knowledge, ideas, and gems of wisdom, and I am grateful. In turn, if I can be of service to you, I am happy to do it.
