Hi my name is Tammy!!! I am very new to REI arena, I am interested in wholesaling to start out, at least I think I am!!! I work full time and need to start out on a part time basis and be able to do things sooner and with less money and the wholesale side seemed to fit. I welcome any and all advice!!

Welcome to BiggerPockets @Tammy Starks ! Although it's more difficult than it seems, many people have started making money in real estate by wholesaling.

If you haven't already, be sure to check out the BiggerPockets Podcasts

There are quite a few episodes focused primarily on wholesaling. I bet you'll pick up a lot of great information listening to them!

hi this jay , I am from Greensboro but have lived in Roseville Ca for

35 years and I am 55 now. I would like to move back to the Charleston SC

for retirement. I love the triad area and do miss it all the time. My family

still lives in Greensboro so I get home when I can. Real Estate is the way

to go so good luck in your endeavors.


Good morning everyone!

Hi Tammy! Awesome to meet other women real estate investors and newbies like yourself! How has your journey been so far up to this point. Would love to hear from you. I started a couple a months ago in Real estate by wholesaling. It was so exciting when I put my first house under contract, we didnt get it flipped, but it was a huge accomplishment in my eyes. So far Ive put two properties under contract but havent closed on a deal yet. Can you share any experiences youve had! Thanks and good luck
