Hi Everyone, 

My name is Heidi and I am completely new to real estate, as in I have ZERO experience :) 

I work in a real estate management company and I deal with various investors so I decided I would love to explore this field on my own. My husband is a Union Electrician and Realtor with Keller Williams so we are looking to become a team. I am mostly interested in flipping houses near my area and I am eagerly looking to learn the ropes!
