My name is Reese, and I'm new to this site (obviously). I have started to get into real estate, and I thought, "I should find a real estate forum." So I googled real estate forum, and BP was first on the list. Seems like a lot of good information, so I joined!
A little about me: I'm originally from southeast Colorado, but currently live in the Youngstown, Ohio area. I'm an engineer by day and am working on my MBA part-time. Minor background in real estate; owned a condo in college and my house now. I am currently in the process of purchasing my first rental property. My goal with real estate is to become financially free (as many others' probably is). I've said in the past that I would like to do this by the time I'm 40 (currently 24), but I've been rethinking this lately as I may not have set this ambitiously enough.
What I'd like to hear from all of you experts is your biggest success with how you've used BP to your advantage!
Hey @Reese Thompson glad to have you here. :) Have you checked the podcast yet? I highly suggest it.
Thanks, guys! I'll be sure to check those out!
@Reese Thompson welcome. Wish I had started at 24 and/or had loftier goals from the get go. You are on the right track.
Hey! Hello. I am in Ohio also. We are currently Marion, Columbus and Gahanna. I am a Realtor and have listed and sold but salary position is as a commercial/retail property manager. (lots & lots of years!)
Currently I am personally looking to get some residential properties to accumulate a small-medium portfolio to both fix & rent (producing cashflow) and fix and sell.
Welcome to the site @Reese Thompson you will definitely learn a lot here.
Welcome to the site.
Nice to see another young professional coming out of Ohio.

Thanks everyone! I look forward to the opportunity to work and learn with you all!
