Hey everyone, 

My name is Curtis Rumel. I am a licensed Realtor in and around Salt Lake County Utah. My background is in Business Banking (7 years) and now I'm on my 4th year of being on my own as a Realtor. Buying and Selling properties for others is my bread and butter but I want to start creating deals for myself i.e. start investing in RE. I'm interested in buying rentals and wholesaling to start but curious about flipping down the road when I have some capital to play with. I'd love to connect with anyone and everyone, especially people in my area so I can pick brains and ask the strange local type questions.

Welcome to bigger pockets. 

I suggest going to SLREIA, UVREIA, and UTREIA. This is where I learned to wholesale and have got lots of insite to being a better landlord and flipper. If you have any specific questions just ask.
