Hello from steamy Minnesota. I'm new to real estate investing however, I know my way around construction sites as I have been in the industry for over 20 years. In my mid-forties I am done with going to a "job" everyday and making other people lots of money. My profile will fill in the missing pieces. 

Doing as much reading/podcast time as I can in an effort to educate myself. Rehabbing of single family and small rentals would be my ideal. Flipping first and then some buy and holds to get the passive income wheel rolling. Looking for any other investors in the Twin Cities area that would be interested in meeting up. Thanks

Locate and attend 3 different local REIA club meetings great place to meet people gather resources and info. Here you will meet wholesalers who provide deals and rehabbers (cash buyers). You can Google to locate them and go to

Two Great reads, I bought both J. Scott The Book on Flipping Houses, The Book on Estimating ReHab Costs

Hi, Matt.  I live in Corcoran, and work in Golden Valley, so drive through MG every day.  Would love to meet up with you at some point in the near future.  If interested, let me know what your schedule looks like early/mid April.  I'm new to the game as well, but perhaps we could learn from eachother.
