@Trey Aubin - Welcome! Growing a portfolio depends on your buying power, and being self employed makes it a little tricky. I would suggest getting pre-approved so you know what you can buy and then finding a great agent who works with investors. Also get involved with your local REIA groups and network with other investors. You can search groups here

Hello everyone, my name is Trey! I am from Columbus, OH, fairly new to BiggerPockets, and brand new to Real Estate. I am licensed to sell all types of insurance in the state of Ohio so if anybody would like a free quote on themselves or their properties, let me know and I’ll be happy to help! I would appreciate any tips or tricks in obtaining Rental Properties and am more than happy to offer any help and answer any questions when it comes to the insurance side of things. Thanks for your time and I’m looking forward to meeting all of you!
Hi Trey! Welcome to BP. There are some good forums here with great information that will serve to get you more familiar with REI and the types of property you are interested in. Good luck with everything!
Welcome @Trey Aubin you will be blown away by the amount of information here. And your background in insurance will serve you very well in real estate, as you probably already know. My wife got her start in the insurance industry for many years until we brought her home to be with the children. Her background has likely saved us thousands of dollars in our real estate business.
Hey @Trey Aubin Welcome to Bigger Pockets and best of luck with your real estate career. I can tell you that being both a REALTOR and an insurance agent has greatly helped me when purchasing the rental properties that I own. Best of luck.
