Welcome Margot! Through BP, I've found Central Florida Realty Investors (CFRI), and made a lot of great connections. You might want to check into it for yourself, as they have a lot of groups specific to what you are looking for, and a wealth of knowledge to go along with it. Best of luck!!!
Hi Margot, I am also a new REI in the Orlando/ Kissimmee area. Welcome to the Bigger Pockets community. I agree with Tina in doing a quick google search of CFRI and going to their events page and pick a specific event that speaks to you. Most you may have to pay a small fee for attending but should be more than worth it for the connections.
Please feel free to PM me, we have a great BP group that meets up every month, as well as share off market and successes in purchases we make.
@kim thank you! I don’t know how to send a message I’m new to here. But would love to be signed up to the email list
