How has your world changed since 2004?

In 2004, @Joshua Dorkin started BiggerPockets, mostly to get answers to his own real estate questions.

Twelve years ago, it never even occurred to me to look for information on real estate investing - nobody shares information for fear of someone else stealing their deal!

I'm soooo glad Josh didn't think like me! 


Over the past 12 years, we've grown from one member to 618,351 as of this very minute. We have 2,315,012 forum posts - meaning my "no one shares information" viewpoint is dead wrong! (I've never been happier to be wrong!)

Take a trip down memory lane and read about how the world has changed in the last 12 years. 

We've got some pretty great screen shots of what we used to look like back then (thankfully Josh has hired a designer since then.)

Thank you for being a part of our site, our growth, and our community. We literally would not be here without you. With your help, BiggerPockets is transforming the way the world invests.

Cake for everybody right?   Happy Birthday BP!!!!  Way to go @Joshua Dorkin !  Very happy for you and the team.  All those days working away in your basement and look at what BP has become:  An integral part of anything related to Real Estate Investing like nothing else in the world.

Congratulations Josh and team! You had the vision and most importantly the guts to do it.

Happy 12th Birthday Bigger Pockets!  

Wow... I just joined today and I am already thankful for finding this great place on the web. This is a great community. It's refreshing to find a plethora of real estate investing information tools, accessible for anyone new to pro in real estate... and the forum questions and experience sharing discussions without a massive sales pitch or product push. The best.

I feel like I am the one who got a birthday gift today.
