I am 23 year old Husker Alumni here in Lincoln, Nebraska, currently at the beginning stages of getting my real estate license. After buying my first home about a year ago I had an immediate interest in the buying and selling process. My goal is to buy, sell, and manage residential and eventually commercial property. I am looking for any and all tips anyone has to offer on how to be successful in real estate, I look forward to meeting you all!
Thank you in advance,
Hey Jessica! It's great meeting other investors nearby! I'm from beatrice. My girlfriend goes to college on lincoln so were considering moving there soon. I'd love to get connected to learn from each other and see where we go with this profession!
Welcome! Lincoln here as well. I almost bought my first apartment building last year, ended up buying a house first, and looking to buy a multifamily again this year.
There's an Omaha real estate investors association but nothing in Lincoln that I'm aware of. More to learn than you'll ever have time to read on the site though!
Welcome! Always good to see other Huskers getting into the game.
Stephen I'm aware of 4 investor associations in lincoln... Let's connect and I'd be glad to share them
Justis and Stephen, I would be interested in joining one of the investors associations in Lincoln...has anyone taken real estate classes from Larabee School of Real Estate and Insurance in Lincoln?
I would as well. Haven't heard of that school. I found books for everything I wanted to learn about (short of interacting directly with people with experience), there's some good lists and references around the forums I think.
Welcome Jessica! I am also in Lincoln, and have been investing for a few years now. It's a fun and challenging endeavor, for sure.
