Starting out and connecting

8 Replies

Hello everyone, 

I want to take the time to introduce myself. I am young entrepreneur living in Philadelphia. I have 5 years of architectural experience - my range is very broad: K-12, Urban Mixed-Use Towers, Multi-Family, Infrastructure, and others. I left the field of architecture to pursue a career in RE Development. I currently work as a Development Manager and continue to provide architectural feedback once requested. 

As a Real Estate Development, I have primarily focused on construction; managing construction budgets, dealing with contractors, and fighting the battles no one else wants to battle. 

I am really looking to connect with folks out here in the area. Philadelphia is currently seeing a lot of construction activity, development activity, and I would love to assist anyone in the process. At the same time, I look for people that in exchange are willing to guide me through the process of getting into rentals, and starting out with rentals. 

I look forward to hearing from you all. 

Hi @Luis Marcelino ,

I'm an agent (licensed in PA & NJ), investor and developer in Philly and surrounding areas. I'd be happy to connect with you. I've been investing in rentals and doing flips for several years. I'm currently developing new construction in multiple areas around the city. I'm sure we could exchange/assist each other. Contact me to discuss further.



Welcome @Luis Marcelino . That's a good bit of experience to have in your pocket when getting started! This meetup just started back up near you. Might be a good one for you to check out if you're available in March

@Luis Marcelino ,

I'm an agent here in Philadelphia as well. I do a lot of estate sells. I'd love to link up. Just let me know what you want and I'll send you what I have. Thanks.
