Hey Ashley, congrats on getting into investing for yourself. I'm in the Nashville area and willing to chat. Also hit meetup.com, there's a few real estate get togethers you can find on there.
I’m going to check it out- thanks!
Checkout Reintn.org - There are a ton of REIN events and I highly recommend becoming a member. The calendar of events can be found on the website. There is also a monthly BP meetup, and also another group that meets at Corky's every Monday at 11. Networking is the foundation of any good REI business! I'd be happy to connect and see if there is any way that I can assist you. Cheers!
