Hello all!

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,

Jessica Monroe

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!

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.

In terms of advice I have found the greatest key to success in real estate is to actually find someone experienced in your local market who can take you under their wing. This is a great post about how to find a mentor and I'd suggest you start there:
