Networking / Profile help

5 Replies

When I originally set up my account I lived in Oklahoma. Now I live in Virginia. I have changed my Profile to reflect my current zip code but all the people near me that are popping up are from my previous zip code. I have tried to look for colleagues where I am at and it says I can not search people outside of 5 miles from my zip code without going pro but I am using my current zip code. Anyone know how to properly get my location changed so I can network locally?

Thank you!

Hi Ginger 

Welcome to Virginia what part of Virginia are you in? If you are in the Richmond area and would like to catch a cup of coffee sometime let me know.

I am an investor/agent if I can be of assistance please let me know.

Thank you!

We are in Leesburg, VA. We have been looking in markets within a 2 hour drive since prices are so inflated here due to D.C. so I have not ruled out looking in Richmond. That being said I have not done much research on the area yet. My goal is acquiring rentals to buy and hold, I would love to hear any opinions on areas to focus.

Hi and welcome. 

I live in DC. I would suggest considering Baltimore as well. And are you having trouble on the site? Did you try changing your profile information, it shows as Leesburg, VA.

Thanks @Georggetta Howie ! Yes, I have changed my profile information to Leesburg but the site keeps suggesting friends "near me" which are all from Lawton, OK where we lived previously. I am not sure where else I need to change information to get it straight. I think I finally found the Help section so hopefully I can get answers.

I hope it works. Maybe try changing the settings, save, log out and back in.
