Hello BP my name is cody from here in the beautiful Pacific northwest I live in Medford oregon with my wife and 3 kids. I am absolutely brand new to the entire realm of what is real estate. I currently work and have worked for the better part of the last 10 years as a professional tree climber/ certified arborist.  I have been interested in real estate for some time now but have been focused on getting my wife through college for the medical industry.   I am a complete knowledge junkie so any advice tips or tricks to help me on my journey I have open ears thanx

thanx for the welcome. I am currently reading real estate investing by magraw hill and my local book store had an entire shelf of litature on the matter. I have the opportunity to purchase a triplex I a nice part of town I think it may just be my first deal. Move into one and rent the other two out I think it's good starting point.

does anyone here know how I can look up the local Reia meetings here in Medford oregon. I Google searches but all results came up with bad contact info or several hundred miles from my location? Any help would be appreciated thanx in advance
