IREON is a unique “fraternal relationship based” non-compete business development network comprised of the highest caliber product and service providers serving the commercial real estate industry.
All members are NY metro-based, with many being national and international in their business reach, several of whom are the largest in the world in their product or service field.
Why is IREON different and unique?
It is because its members have become friends who personally introduce their close trusted Owner, Developer relationships to each other, “opening doors” that otherwise would not be opened to new business opportunities.
They take an active role, which is very different from merely handing out a business card, or offering a name and telephone number to call.
Rarely does anyone select a product or service provider because of their own “due diligence.”
The decision is almost always made because they “TRUST” the person who is making the recommendation for that selection.
Success is guaranteed when you do NOT have to “sell” your service or product, but only need to produce it!
This is why, “IREON members grow and prosper from the company they keep and the relationships they share!”
IREON does not hold regular membership meetings because they are time consuming and more often than not, prove to be of little value.
Members meet individually on their own schedule to build trusting relationships. This is the “catalyst” to the “opening of doors” for fellow IREON members which produces new business opportunity.
IREON holds quarterly events with topics of interest to every landlord and developer that are informative and afford insight to increasing profits in their property portfolios.
Landlords, developers, managers and operators are always welcome to be at IREON events. “Vendors”, (the service providers and product suppliers), must be members of IREON to attend.
The invites are emailed weekly to over 10,000 building owners, operators, developers and mangers throughout the NY metropolitan region. The minimum value of each property is $10 million.
Because the IREON membership roster is included on these invites, the recipients can immediately connect with the IREON member who provides a service or product they need or desire.
Member “Happy Hour Bi Monthly Meet Ups”:

Free business promotion on JusPost.com, the only real estate “search engine” on the world wide web.
What makes a “worthy” IREON member?
To be the “right” firm, they need to be well established and highly reputable, with a large client base of business relationships they can share with the fellow members of IREON.
To be the “right” company member representative, they must be a “giver,” one who wants to help fellow members expand their business opportunities by sharing their business relationships, that are “returned in kind”.
The foundation of IREON’s success is the sharing of these long term business relationships that personally “open doors” to new business opportunity for every member. The introductions are done willingly, because no member’s business competes with the other in either service or product.
Cost of Membership:
Dues solely support IREON’s operational expenses. IREON is NOT a profit making business, but merely the “conduit” for members to gain financial benefit.
Minimum membership term: 1 year
(Amount of time needed to build trusting relationships among members to prove its financial value)
If the membership cost does not become irrelevant within one (1) year, it is solely because the member is not taking advantage of their membership opportunities. IREON will terminate the company’s membership in these cases because no one has benefited.
Annual dues : $6,600.00 (effective January 1, 2019)
Paid in (4) quarterly payments of $1,650.00 or (1) payment of $5,600 upon joining (a 15.15% discount).
