As you most likely saw from the title i am 16 and want to get into Realestate. Ever since i was young i knew i was going to be successful by any means possible (Legal means that is). Well anyways fast track to when i turned 13 i found out about Realestate and ever since then i have been in love with the whole aspect of it and i understand its not a get rich quick type of business but i am ready to put my blood sweat and if it comes to it tears into the game that i love so much but from where i come from which is Good ole Maine we really don't have any Realestate classes going on anywhere where i can learn from somebody and have a real life Teacher I have taken so far a-lot of online classes that is which are Manny Koshbin's Mentorship and Rich Dad Realestate Cashflow Blueprint. And have read books like FAKE by Robert Kiyosaki, Think and grow rich By Napoleon Hill , Rich dad poor dad by Robert Kiyosaki, The Richest Man In Babylon, Tax Free wealth by Tom Wheelwright, The 4-hour workweek By Timothy Ferriss, Money Master the game By Tony Robbins... And the list goes on and on and on. I know it might be weird but i'm looking for a real Teacher on here someone who can take me under their wings until I am ready to fly. It really would be greatly appreciated more than you know.It will be a life changing experience!

Congrats to you for your ambition! I work with a bunch of young aspiring real estate investors just like you, and I am willing to help you out with some advice or even chat on the phone if you wish. But I recommend you read this article I wrote for Bigger Pockets titled How to Invest in Real Estate Before Turning 21. Once you've read it, let me know your thoughts and if you have any questions. I am a high school teacher in Colorado and I am always looking to help young people get started in real estate investing or help in any way I can. Let me know if you want to chat sometime.
Welcome! Get a job with a property management company to learn the business. There's plenty of work out there, and you can learn while making money. You'll learn about common issues in rentals, how to deal with tenants, etc. Maybe your boss would even help you find a deal once you're 18 and can legally sign papers. Most landlords are hard workers and will respect a person who works as hard as they do, without freaking out about cleaning nasty apartments.
