Greetings All!  We are in New Bern NC... a great little big small town with a lot of history!  I feel like I'm coming late to the party regarding getting our toes wet in Real Estate- (buying with cash, rehabing & flipping)- but hopefully better late than never, right?

Just got thru reading the No,Low Money Down book- wow, have my eyes been opened!  I look forward to learning more and more and hopefully TAKING ACTION within the next 3-6 months!  We've got a closing coming up at the end of the month... and we're looking for our next project!  Happy hunting everyone!

Thanks everyone!  Learning day by day... how to be a better steward of what I've been blessed with... and hopefully, with the help of this site and it's inhabitants... I will also be able to create a legacy with which to bless others long after I'm gone.  Not only do i appreciate these skills as a way to build wealth for me and mine, I also recognize that when we do what we do... we improve neighborhoods, and lives (hopefully) which further creates better communities!  I'm excited!

Hey @Leann W. welcome to the site! I'm glad you're checking out the book. I appreciate it a lot. Definitely start jumping into the community here! Be sure to setup some keyword alerts - especially for "New Bern" so you can jump into local conversations.

See you around the forums!
