Hi @Dave Jeltema   Always great to see more Utah investors becoming part of BP.

When you say you are "jumping all in", what exactly are your plans?

Also, when I go to your profile it says your page address is /crazypilot.  I want to hear more about that.


glad to see other individuals from Utah


Hey @Dave Jeltema welcome to the Utah BP family. :) If you haven't been to any local real estate investor associations in Utah you should definitely check those out. Salt Lake has one, Utah Valley has one, and both of them have luncheons that are good where you can meet fellow investors and network. Lots of good resources her on BP as well.
