Investor from Orlando, FL

I have been a member of BiggerPockets for about a year, but never posted my introduction.  How rude! Well here I am to make it right.

I started my investing career shortly after graduating college, purchasing my first house in mid 2006 here in Central Fl with big plans to make money and roll it into additional purchases. I must be a market timing wizard since I nailed (I mean to the month) the peak and had to watch my equity grow in the wrong direction for 5 years! I could have walked away, as so many people were, but I couldnt live with that lack of integrity. I knew deep down that its the people who follow through with their agreements that come out ahead in the long run. I still have that place rented out.

Fast forward to today. I have an additional property and am actively seeking a third and fourth within the year. Over the past year or so, I have really ramped up my real estate education with the local REIA (CFRI), and BP. Shout out to CFRI and Bigger Pockets, what top notch organizations!

I am slowly building this business, taking my time to do it right and operate with transparency. I can't say how much I appreciate the BiggerPockets community for it's networking and educational opportunities.

Welcome fellow Bigger Pockets member! This is a great forum and I am sure it will help you learn many facets of the real estate investment world. I purchased my first investment property over 40 years ago and only wish that I had a resource like BP community when I got started! So you are in a good company.

Some say that your net-worth equals your network, and this is the place to make right connections. You should also find investors locally and network with them face-to-face. Find people close to you using MEET feature. Also, look for investor meetings on Meetup.

All the best!
