Hi everyone, just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. I've listened to the Podcast and read the forums for years, but am finally taking the time to become more actively involved! I work as a Corporate RE consultant out of NYC, and while I have plenty of academic RE knowledge, I am excited about putting it to work and learning plenty of real world lessons along the way!

My fiancee and I moved to NJ just a few weeks ago, and are looking to begin our RE portfolio by finding an owner occupied duplex in a decent neighborhood, happy to discuss with anyone that may have some advice! Likewise, if there is every anything I can help with, please do not hesitate to reach out, especially with things like financial models and communications materials; as you can imagine, my day job has made me fairly proficient at those!

I look forward to meeting and working with many of you!
