Brand new to the site....

My name is Greg Mitchell, I work for an oilfield services company in OKC, OK.  I'm new to real estate investing...became an accidental landlord after moving for a job and realized that for my whole life I had been looking at the world all wrong.   

I am absolutely committed to creating the future I want for my family through real estate investing.  

Thanks in advance for all the advice and help!
