Meet the Board of Directors
Neil Wingate, Lowell
My wife & I purchased our first rental in the early 70's. I continued purchasing more rentals in Illinois while working full time there as well as in Ohio, Michigan and Texas. After being right sized after 15 years with one company we moved to Indiana to work for another company. We then liquidated all Illinois properties for the more favorable investment climate in Indiana. This included single family homes, duplexes, a 12 unit apartment building and a mobile home park. While doing this, we also did lease options, wholesaling, rehabs and pretty houses.
Founder of NICIA (Northwest Indiana Creative Investor Association). I was an Elder at our church and on the building committee when we built a new facility. We were involved in Boy Scouts while our 2 sons became Eagle Scouts. Since 1995 have been working full time with our Real Estate Investments.
We LOVE to travel in our RV! In 2018-2019 we were Good Sam State Directors for Indiana ( a 2 year term where we oversaw two RV rallies each year). This is a worldwide camping club with over 2 million members

Grant Anderson, Indianapolis
Grant purchased his first real estate property in 2001 while he was still in college. In 2006, he married Rebekah, and together, they purchased investment properties in Oklahoma, and throughout Sacramento for the next ten years.
In 2017, they began investing in Indianapolis and moved here shortly thereafter. They primarily focus on purchasing rental properties using the Buy, rehab, rent, refinance, repeat (BRRRR) method, but have experience doing flips, notes and managing commercial properties.
Grant currently serves on the Board of Directors for INstateREIA and CIREIA. He also runs the BRRRR subgroup, and serves as a resource to new investors to help them build their own real estate businesses.

Conference & Events / Legislation
My name is Alicia Ortiz. I have been an active investor since 2003. I have served over 5 years on the Board of Directors of RIEA-NCI and NICIA. I am a founding member of INstateREIA and serve on the Board of Directors. In 2016, I set up at meeting of all Indiana Investors who were in attendance at the OREIA Conference and through that meeting INstateREIA was born. I am proud to be able to give back to investors in Indiana by being a part of an organization that is about standing up for investors and giving investors a good name again. I look forward to helping this group move forward to the next level.
