New Member Introduction

Tashiba Jackson
Posted Apr 22 2024, 10:24

My name is Tashiba Jackson and I live in Baton Rouge, LA.  I'm new to Real Estate Investing, but not new to dreaming I've been dreaming about investing for a very long time.  Fear has been my biggest set back in keeping me from my goal of Real Estate Investing, but I no longer have that fear and I'm betting on me from now own.  With the grace and mercy of GOD I will own my 1st Real Estate Investment property before the end of this year this will be 1 of many as I plan on retiring early so that I will be able to enjoy the fruits of my labor and help others where needed

Glad to have you on the forum, Tashiba! With your positive attitude and belief in yourself, I'm confident you'll reach your goal of owning your first investment property by the end of this year. It's awesome that you're also planning for early retirement and the chance to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Best of luck,
Julio

Hi Tashiba,

Getting started can be tough. Let me know if I can help. I'm originally from BR and know the market reasonably well. I'm more than happy to chat.

 Hi Patrick!!! Please lets KIT and once I get started I won't be afraid to venture outside of Louisiana.  :) I'm looking to retire early and do what I love the most.
