Hello everyone so first and foremost I just completed 5 months of real estate schools, test, pop quizzes, state and national exams, but I survived it lol with that being said I am now licensed and have access to MLS. My initial plan was to invest with using my day job as a insurance agent. I make a decent living and have the opportunities to invest. I was wondering if anyone who is licenses has done this before since we got more info with MLS do you see this as an advantage vs not having it and I am also leary on investing off the bat with a partner vs doing it myself. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Mls is a great tool and is definitely an advantage. You can use it to grow both business. I personally don't like partners but some time you have to partner up. Just make sure your both on the same page and have it limited to one or two properties or time etc, and always have an exit strategy. 

Whether MLS is a tool depends on your marketplace. I haven't used it in 5 years, but I don't buy SFR. My friend @Serge S.  does a bunch of business using the MLS.  So - depends :)
