Hey Guys Im only 17 years old in the Knoxville area. Real estate is everything to me, Just wondering if I can get any tips or advice from this amazing group!!!
@Lucas Gibson hey man, happy to help. Just let me know what questions you may have and I'll be happy to try and answer them
@Wala Habiby hey thanks for replying to me, I want hands on experience with property managers or someone that owns property. I’m just not sure where/how to contact or find these people in my area.
@Lucas Gibson I manage my own property. So what exactly are you trying to learn? Just how to property manage your own or work as a property manager ?
@Wala Habiby yeah how to manage property and eventual manage someone’s property for free. If you know anybody that would be amazing!
@Lucas Gibson Join a local LL org in your area and attend their networking events which we will be able to have in the coming months. They generally have informative presentors and you will have the opportunity to meet all kinds of helpful folks in person.
@Lucas Gibson I would consider working as a leasing agent for a large and reputable management company for 1-3 years. The larger the property or portfolio the better. This is the fastest and most effective way to learn about property management.
@Bjorn Ahlblad awesome thank you! Do you guys have a website to know when these events start?
@Michael Robbins noted, thank you!
@Lucas Gibson join a group where you live they will have a website. You can find the groups doing google searches. Also look at the NARPM website lots of good stuff there.
@Bjorn Ahlblad thank you for ur help man!
@Lucas Gibson I agree with the comments above. Working for a large management company would be your best case scenario to learn the correct way to do it. As I mentioned, I have a small operation with my property but I am happy to sit down with you one day and show you what I do and answer any questions you may have.
@Lucas Gibson - To truly be a successful investor, you need to cultivate the right mindset and be a constant learner. Most people live in fear, forced to work a 9 to 5 to maintain their standard of life. Fearful of being late, getting reprimanded at their job and losing their source of sustenance. You run into the same situation with "wanna be" investors. They love the idea of real estate investing but are paralyzed by the fear of making mistakes, losing money, the unknown. I personally lived in the state of fear for 7 years while I worked a W2 and finally had enough.
You need to be willing to take massive action and become a better version of yourself every day. Read, network, save, and work every day to becoming the person you envision you can be. Success will follow.
Read the books and listen to the podcasts! Get yourself educated and absorb all the information that you can!!
@Wala Habiby thank you, you have no idea how much this means to me. I would love to go see your property and talk about how you run them some day.
@Lucas Gibson sounds good man. Just private messages sometime and will get it organized.
@Andrew Freed straight fact man, I downloaded this app not knowing what to think. Just from one comment I have got more positive feedback and support than I ever have from family and friends.
@Dave E. Thank you!🤙🏽
@Lucas Gibson hi. I just read The Wealthy Gardner which had a little bit of a different take on finance and thought process and planning your goals and your vision for the future. I downloaded it onto my kindle for $8.99 I think but the print version was about the same. My advice would be to continue with your education through reading the books here on BP and the ones people will recommend when someone asks for book recommendations.
@Alecia Loveless thank you
