Hi Bigger Pockets!
I am proud to finally get around to introducing myself! I moved to Fairfax, VA about a year ago and over the course of the last 2 months I've been reading a TON about real estate investing. It has always been a passion of mine, but until recently I haven't done the necessary research. I'm hoping to make my first investment in the next year, but until then I'm just educating myself and networking. I went to a meetup in DC recently and it was a lot of fun. Does anybody have any recommendations on a good real estate agent or broker in the area that also invests? I'm also curious if anybody can provide any insight into the types of investments that the market is currently favoring. I've been reading the low and no money down book because I believe I'm going to need to get creative with my financing.

Hi @Ben Bechtel
Welcome to Fairfax VA. Please check out my profile- I'm highly experienced and specialize in working with investors. I also own a small portfolio of buy/hold properties in Fairfax. My brokerage office is right in Fairfax City and hopefully would be convenient for you.
I'm also an active member of Capital REI, which is a really great meet up that meets once a month in Fairfax City. It's run by a really good group of guys- @John Rubino , @Justin Pierce , and @Roger Lin . Very nice group that's not 100% sales focused like many of the other meetups. Hopefully you can attend an event and get value from it!
I'd be happy to talk to you and see what might make sense. Feel free to reach out.
@Ben Bechtel Welcome to BP. We are practically neighbors.
