Turns 7 – Happy Birthday!

by |

On October 22, 2004, while teaching high school in Los Angeles and worrying about my own personal real estate investments, I created BiggerPockets. The seven years that have passed since then, have seen what was intended to be a resource for my own personal needs, turn into the greatest platform online for real estate investors and other professionals!

With millions and millions of visitors from 191 countries and 77,000+ members, BiggerPockets has truly become the Premier real estate investing community.

Here’s a brief video with some personal thoughts:

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of the BiggerPockets family!

And stick around . . . we’ve got some exciting things to come for you in the future!
