Hey BP members my name is La'Keisha Fenner and I am fairly new to the Real Estate world. I currently reside in south Florida Fort Lauderdale area I also travel to Miami often. I joined BP because I want to learn as much as I can about wholesaling/flipping instead of just jumping right into the game inexperienced with no knowledge. I have been reading a lot of books lately and been doing a lot of research on house flipping I even went to a seminar last week that was in my area on flipping houses and I paid for the next event which is suppose to teach me all that I need to know about Real Estate in 3 days (not sure if that was a good idea but I'm willing to give it a shot). I am also seeking to find a good mentor in my area that has many years of experience in Real Estate. My goal is to make a lucrative career out of house flipping/wholesaling and I need advice from my BP members I need to know where to start help me out BP am I on the right track???

Hey, experienced Wholesaler here from South Florida. 

My best advice to get started wholesaling is to make a plan around your budget and attack! 

I would also suggest you join our local real estate clubs to network with others who are doing the business. 

Google Dreia or Brieia to get there info

Nice to see folks from South Florida on the site 

Good Luck!!

Hi @Lakeisha Fenner

I think that mentors can be an incredible blessing to investors - I've been really lucky and have had some great ones myself.

Just be careful that you set expectations correctly for yourself and for the mentor - most of the time that I've sought the advice of a mentor, they've directed me to some resource or material.

In case you are interested - I wrote about my experience finding mentors in this "Ultimate Guide to Finding Incredible Mentors" - I hope that it helps you with your search!

 Hey @Michelle Murray thanks for the advice I actually just signed up for Breia's annual real estate expo November 4th will you be attending as well?

Hi Lakeisha,

Welcome to BP. I discovered BP a while ago but didn't really get involved until recently.

I must admit that waiting to get involved was a mistake. The people of BP are great, the real estate knowledge & experience is deep and opportunities to learn & connect are plentiful.

Plug in. You have everything to gain & nothing to lose.

Check out my profile & let's chat. I'd like to get to know you. I invest all over the country. Who knows, maybe we can do a deal together at some point.
