Super Noob in the Biggest Little City - Reno, NV

4 Replies


My name is Wes Pittman. I'm a transportation planner by trade and a rock climber and  musician by passion. Well, there's definitely passion for planning too! I love great urban spaces so I got my masters degree from Arizona State University in Urban and Environmental Planning, and busy myself advocating for non-automobile transportation investment and use. My main interests with real estate development are simultaneously diversifying my income streams while contributing to my community and creating great spaces. Being young and freshly unburdened from my student debt (Yay!), I'm just starting to build up enough capital to play the real estate game. Hence I'm unexperienced but I'm inquisitive, driven, and excited to learn the ropes.

Hey @Wesley Pittman  thanks for introducing yourself! It's great to have you here! Don't miss The BiggerPockets Podcast - they are great for learning how others are finding success.

Oh - and be sure to set up some Keyword Alerts- especially for "Reno Nevada" so you'll be notified when people mention it here in the forums.

Thanks again for introducing yourself!

Haha. How about a high-line freeway? That would be fun!

In the realm of more likely to get implemented though, the RTC is going to be doing a major reconstruction of Oddie Boulevard and put in a really nice cycletrack and large sidewalks. It's going to be really nice when it's done.
