Good Afternoon Everyone!

My name is Michael, 23 years old, I am currently located in Bronx, NY. I was a real estate agent for 2 years between 2010 and 2012. I am looking to start out with wholesaling real estate, learn as I grow and eventually move on to bigger projects such as fix and flips, residential properties, etc. I know the odds are stacked against me with wholesaling, but I NEVER give up and will become great at it.

Ambitious, quick learner, and looking forward to learning a lot from all of you!

If you have any advice, tips, and/or know anyone in NYC Long Island or NJ close by who I can learn from please let me know!

Hey @Michael Bradley welcome to the site! I know we have a good number of folks from your area here on BP so be sure to set up some Keyword Alerts for terms like "New York City" "NYC" and especially "Bronx"

Great to have you here!
