Hi everyone, I'm Michael Maier. I was born and raised in Toledo, OH and lived most of my life in the metro area. I work as a temp at the Johnson Controls Northwood facility supplying Jeep with seats.

I've no experience with real estate beyond what I've read here and in various books. My interest in real estate comes from wanting to take back my time and resolving the income/debt ratio. Working for a Jeep supplier isn't bad, but life revolves around three things; eat, sleep and Jeep, 13 days on and one day off. While I'm not against hard work, I also want more time with my wife and my friends.

What I'm interested in doing, at least to start, is foreclosures and single-family rentals.

Welcome to BP Michael,

Toledo is a great market to be in.

See you around the forum.

Thanks for the welcome.  It'll be great to start a new chapter in my life.

I checked out the local REIA meeting times, unfortunately I won't be able to go as I'll be at work.

I'll look into wholesaling more.  From some of the forum posts I'd read, it seemed to be a little more difficult for an inexperienced investor get involved in.
