Mission Statement

The West DFW REI Group's (also referred to as WDFWREIG) mission is to provide the best quality real estate investment training, education, networking opportunities, and local vendors to support our members and promote ethical business practices with the general public.  We pride ourselves and our members on our positive and productive relationships with our vendors, the cities, inspectors, code compliance offices, realtors, lenders, and all the contractors we do business with.

Code of Ethics And Standards of Practice of WDFWREIG Members

The ownership and management of real estate is a highly regulated segment of the free enterprise system of the United States.  As such, the members and vendors of the WDFWREIG must treat this enterprise with the utmost professionalism at all times.

The WDFWREIG membership includes each member and vendor in the organization of people who are intent on expanding their knowledge of real estate investing and management.  To pursue these ends legally and ethically, all WDFWREIG members will be held to a higher standard of ethical behavior. This includes, but is not limited to, the following list of behaviors:

  1. WDFWREIG members will act professionally as Real Estate Investing and Housing Providers when dealing with tenants, the public, the media, government officials, and all others.
