Hello from a New Member in Orange County, CA

5 Replies

Hello everyone,

I'd like to introduce myself. I found this site while doing some due diligence on a real estate brokerage firm and discovered this hidden (to me anyway) gem of real estate investing information.

I live near the beach in Orange County currently renting a place at 0.3% of its Market Value (I like the 2% metric people use here). I just began the process of becoming a licensed real estate agent. My plan is to offer my services to real estate investors and gain transaction experience so that I may start investing myself. I look forward to becoming an active member.

Hey Ryan, welcome!

I'm in Tustin, so probably not too far from you. I just got started on BP too and I'm going to try to make the meetup in Lake Forest next week. Hope to see you there!

@Joe Homs Thanks for saying hello and extending the invitation. I will make plans to attend the event. For the RE license I enrolled in 3 online courses (Principles, Practice, and Finance) offered through California School of Real Estate and purchased a study guide to get me started.

Hi, @Matt Kvalheim I hope to see you there.

@Ryan Byrne Welcome to BP! I see you jumped right in confirming for the meetup! that's great. It's the first meetup we've had, so it's good timing. @Matt Kvalheim and @Joe Homs We'll see you there too I hope!
