A little about me...I have always worked in an office with flipping as a side hobby. I have done 11 flips in the past (all successful) and currently own 3 rental properties. I recently decided to go into real estate full time and got my realtor's license. My end game, though, is to get back into flipping and owning rental properties. My girlfriend turned me on to BP and I love it! I hope to connect and work with some or all of you here at some point!
You sound like you've got a great background! Look forward to learning more from you in future posts!
Hey John and welcome to BiggerPockets!
Good for you for taking the first steps of getting involved in investments and real estate. You will find BP as an excellent source of information!
I suggest reading "The Millionaire Real Estate Investor" by Gary Keller, a real eye opener. Also, read Rich Dad Poor Dad, which is a MUST.
Good luck with your path.

Welcome to @John Li !!
Your GF is smart! Ha. Welcome to a fellow Chicago area investor. I hope to meet you in person at a local REI Club real soon.
I hope your focus is on REI as a business not as a hobby. Hobbies cost you money, business makes money. Well most businesses at least.
