Anyone out there with a large portfolio?

I posted a few days about an owner I ran across in Houston, wondering how he got so big.  I was hoping to find some people on BP that have grown their own portfolios.  I realize not everyone will see or read every post but I was a bit bummed out to see that there were no replies from investors.

The more I look at posts/replies the more it seems there are mostly people looking to start and very few that have "made it".   Am I way off?  Wrong area of the site?

Nobody likes to consider themselves "large investors" and that means different things to different people.  Also people generally don't like broadcasting how many units they have on a public forum, especially if they use their full name.  There are a lot of newbies here, but I'd say most of the people who stick around have at least started the journey with real property.

@John L. Of course, that is what you would expect to be the case. The average person does not succeed to a level well above average. Real estate is one of the best ways to succeed financially but that doesn't mean everyone who participates in real estate investing is going to be successful.
