Hey everyone, I am very exciting and nervous at the same time to enter the market of real estate investing, I am eager too learn and hopefully make my mark in this business. I am open to suggestions and questions. I am looking to make some contacts and business friendships that will help us all gain gain and gain in this market.  I am enrolling into school to get my Michigan Real Estate License and will be looking for a sponsor soon and I am hoping to get into flipping property and becoming a landlord with some of my own investment properties to generate a positive cash flow. Any and All Help is welcome, I could also use a mentor if possible...Thanks for having me here on I am looking forward to sharing my experiences with all of you.
