Hi all,

my name is Ralph Hicks and I'm new to Bigger Pockets. I currently have one rental and I'm interested in learning about the world of Real Estate investing starting with Wholesaling. I look forward to getting to know everyone here. 

Welcome @Ralph Hicks !

I recommend that you check out the free how to guides under "Learn".   If you have specific questions, I find the search in the upper right hand corner is very valuable as it brings up results from the forum, blogs, people, etc.
