BiggerPockets Grows its Team

by Joshua Dorkin on November 29, 2012 · 41 comments

  

I’m excited to announce that BiggerPockets is growing its team to include a new hire, Brandon Turner. Brandon will be serving as our Senior Editor and Community Director, and will be responsible for not only managing our blog, and online community, but will also be playing a key role in much of our social outreach.

Brandon (Twitter) has been a real estate investor for the last half-decade (he has been our Sunday blogger for the past several months) and is an accomplished blogger and communicator that has produced some incredible content. Furthermore, he is talented, creative, and insightful, and will make a great addition to the team.

Please welcome Brandon to the family.

Nice! Congratulations to both of you. This is a coup for BP. Brandon is among my favorite writers on this blog and his personal blog is one of the best resources out there. I’m excited to know that we will get to see even more from him! He has a killer name too…so good work there. :)

Will do, Nick. It’s going to be an adjustment – but I’m excited because I know this adjustment will actually give me more ability to pursue some bigger deals!

Wow that P90X is really paying off for Mr. Turner! Nice move Josh. BT is one of the most entertaining blogger on the BP site. I think you made an excellent hire.

Community manager, that’s like property manager, right? Just think of us as your 100,000+ tenants, some of us requiring more management than others!

Ha Jon! I think I’m going to have nightmares now! But as long as no one calls to clean a toilet – I’m okay!

Reply

Jon K November 30, 2012 at 4:51 am

Ha, for some reason my family thinks unclogging a toilet is job only I have the expertise to do. Fortunately there is none of that on BP.

Hey Jon – Jump on a site called Gravatar.com and upload a pic to connect with your email addy. That way, when you comment here on the BP Blog or on any other Wordpress blog, your image will show up with it. There’s my tip of the day!

Arthur November 30, 2012 at 9:24 am

Awesome news buddy!! I think you will be a great addition to the team. Maybe now Josh can come up for air every once and a while, or even take a vacation – lol! Congrats again!

Thanks Arthur! I can see it now – Josh sitting on the beach in Aruba, drinking a purple drink… laptop in hand. :)

That’s how I see it too . . . but on a wind-surf board.

Congratulations guys, I just joined a week or so ago and immediately gravitated towards Brandon’s blogs— being in my twenties and interested in RE investing— and bought a book from his reccomendations list (Cash flow & other key formulas). Hoping to get guidance here at BP and buy my first rental within a couple years.

Joshua Dorkin December 1, 2012 at 7:26 am

Thanks Derek. Welcome to BiggerPockets! Definitely jump in and get active over on the forums when you can.

Hey Derek – Thank you! BiggerPockets is actually how I learned a ton about real estate investing at the beginning. It’s like a 3-D book. And like Josh said – the forums are great. Ask anything!
