Hi,

My name is Lenny Liang. A few days ago, I moved to North Carolina from Maryland. Over the past 6 months, I've been voraciously consuming Bigger Pockets content (especially the excellent podcasts). I told myself that once I moved to North Carolina, I would join the BP community and begin investing in real estate.

This is me fulfilling the first part of that goal. My house in MD goes on the market in the next couple days. After it sells, I plan to invest part of my equity in real estate. In the meantime, I am trying to learn my new area and hopefully make some meaningful local connections. 

Thanks for having me! I look forward to engaging with you.

Good Luck

Thanks for the kind welcome everybody! I knew that BP had a vibrant community, but it feels good to experience it for myself. I'd love to follow up with each of you individually, but I'm not sure how to do that yet. Perhaps I'll learn more once I take the "How To Use Bigger Pockets" webinar :)

In the meantime, I've followed each of you. I hope that's not an improper thing to do. On a side note, I was especially excited to get a shout-out from you Brandon. I know you welcome everybody, but after hearing your voice almost every day for the past couple months, you've become a bit of a rock star to me. Thank you for all of the knowledge you've already imparted upon me. I look forward to this next leg of my investing journey.
