Meet The Hosts:

Colin Smith - Investing since 2012 and licensed since 2014, my niche as a Realtor has been working with Investors in every aspect to bring deals together. I've flipped homes, own and manage rental properties, wholesaled, and been a hard money lender. My goal is find deals and match them with investors who are ready to jump on the opportunity, and problem solve real estate transactions when they come up.

Brent Bowers – Bought my first buy and hold April 2007 and have been wholesaling homes since 2013. I wholesaled 32 properties in 2017 all while working a full-time job as an Army officer by building a team. I have buy and hold real estate investments, whole-taled properties, and have flipped homes to maximize profit while minimizing the amount of rehab required.

    Hi, I am new to BP, and currently in the education phase of my plan for investing in homes. I am a Officer in the military and so is my wife, would love to reach out and connect with you sometime in the future since I am currently deployed. I should be back sometime around thanksgiving of this year and would love to meet up at one of your meetings once I am back.                                                                                                  V/R,                                                           Richard

    @Richard Thomas - Let's connect when it comes closer and we can find a time to get together discuss what you and your wife's goals are and what we can do to make it happen or at least point you in the right direction. We would also be happy to do a conference call, Skype, or FaceTime meeting in the mean time as well. Just let me know what would be best for you guys!

    My name is Joan Phillips. Someone at the Meetup at Mi Mexico told me about this meeting. My husband and I are in the educational stage of investing and would like to attend. Unfortunately, I cannot attend until October 2. I hope to meet you then, Colin.


    @Joan Phillips undefined, I’m glad to hear you’ll be able to make it to the 10/2 meetup! Definitely introduce yourself either before or after as I would love to get connected with you and see what we can do to get you going from education to hands on investing! 

    Thanks for organizing this @Colin Smith .  I should be able to come for the first time to the 10/2 meeting too, @Joan Phillips !  Really looking forward to meeting others in the community.  We've got two rentals but we kind of came into investing sideways so I'm enjoying learning more.

    @Erin Genz - That is great to hear you'll make it to the 10/2 meet up as well! Definitely introduce yourself as its easy to get lost in the group and I may miss you guys. I am a tall guy so easy to pick out in the group. See you guys then!
