Wholesaler · Miami, Florida

Hello BP members, my name is Jamie Mondestin. I'm so glad to find this site.

There are vast amount of knowledge here to take in. First, my goal is to

connect with as much individuals as possible. I believe that there is strength in

numbers. My first step is to be a great wholesaler. I have done some research

and this goal is not easily attainable without the right mindset, the right

connection, the right information, and the right action plan.

More on that later. A little bit about myself. I was born during the Reagan Era,

if it is safe to say that. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this was a

recessionary period. I spend most of my life in Miami, fl. It is impossible for me

to get lost. Have been throughout the county and vicinities(Miami shores,

North Miami, Miami Beach, El Portal, Miami Garden, Miami Lakes, Hialeah, Coral

Gables, Kendall, etc). I'm currently a student at Miami Dade College -Wolfson

Campus. I'm going for my AS degree in Network Service Technology. Hopefully,

earning my Certification and move up the ladder with an IT company. However,

I got into real estate investing as a mean to supplement my income to pay for

school and get out of debt. Moreover, the notation that America is for sale is

true. So its only reasonable to get your slice of the pie, don't you think? Be it

that it may, I looking for a mentor to take me under their wings, sort to speak.

Anyone that is interested, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Jamie - Welcome to the site. I'll be honest . . . I didn't read the entire post (skimmed it) because the formatting was so funny. Did you copy and paste your message? I've never seen the forums do that before.

Regardless, thanks for signing up and hopefully we can help you with your real estate ventures as you wrap up your time in school.

Let us know how we can help!

Thanks Joshua for having me. About the formatting, I actually type it in that way. The reason is that when I was drafting the post. It was all congested. So I add spaces between each line. Had no idea it would come out this way.

Welcome Jamie! I am somewhat new here as well. There are tons of great information. BP members are very helpful and willing to share their knowledge. Good luck!

Welcome to BP @Jamie Mondestin. As the others have said, BP has a wealth of information on wholesaling, so be sure to scour the wholesaling forums:

Also, for the mentions to work properly (and the person to receive notification of your mention) you have to use their full name and click it when the drop down list of names appears. Good luck!
