Newbie to BP

4 Replies

Hello all! I am James, an investor from the Philly area. I am rebooting. I have several investment properties. I have been doing this for 10 yrs -hap hazardous. I am a professional educator by trade and a contractor by passion. I love real estate. I am in the process of growing a team.

I am taking classes to get my real estate license( should be finish course work by years end).

I am a knowledge seeker and I love BP. I look forward to networking and sharing/gaining knowledge of the real estate arena.

Check out my post in the deal forum. I need some input ASAP.

Thanks team!

Hey James!

First of all very strong name. Nice job and taking steps to getting your license. You will find that what you learn for the licensing exam is just the beginning of your studies as you need to familiarize yourself with so much that is not touched on in the 60 hours of coursework. I am in Philly as well, so feel free to reach out, it's definitely helpful to pick the brain of someone who's gone through the test for tips.
