Aspiring investor from California

15 Replies

Hello everyone! My name is Marco, and I wanted to introduce myself to everyone on the site. I am looking forward to interacting and learning enough from everyone so that I may also be of service to new members someday. I am a family man looking for that financial freedom we all desire. Discovering bigger pockets has been amazing and an eye opening moment in my life! This site and all of you have shown me that it is indeed possible for the average person to become successful through real estate. I have read and gone through a few of the forums, I listen to the podcast daily on my way to work, and have started buying real estate books to further educate myself. I understand that this journey will not be easy, but I'd rather struggle and work hard towards my future rather than someone else's. I am here for the long run and am interested in investing in multi-family properties. I look forwarding to meeting you guys and someday forming successful partnerships that we can all benefit from. if you have any advice for someone like me, please feel free to share. Thank you all. Marco


Welcome to Biggerpockets. I live in CA to and alike you wanted to achieve financial freedom and with a couple of years of hard work I have been able to.

Would love to help you in any way that I can!

I appreciate you reaching out Antoine. We are actually not too far from each other. I currently reside in Bakersfield. I look forward to this learning process and the potential opportunities to invest with people like yourself.

Hey Marco,

Its great to see you taking charge of your future. I am an investor and wholesaler from Bakersfield but now I reside in the Ventura area. I still work with people from the area so if you need any help don't hesitate to reach out.

Take care,
