getting started in charlotte

9 Replies

I am a newbie in Charlotte that has some experience in Real Estate. I have spent quite a bit of time reading and researching as to the best way to get started again and find what is my niche. I wanted to know if there are expierieced groups or individuals in Charlotte or the surrounding area that specializes in helping people get started. I have also looked into the different REO's that Charlotte has to offer and been given some good advice.

Welcome! Charlotte is a good market, I invest there. What type of REI do you want to do?
