Greetings...just moved to the area after 29 years of military service. I started flipping homes about 15 years ago and have about 15 flips under my belt and some rental properties as well. Now that I'm retired, I plan to do this full time. If I can do 1 flip per year while employed full time, I should be able to do 4-6 per year if real estate has my full attention. Look forward to connecting and sharing any ideas.
Thank you for your service sir. I wish you the best of luck in the Charlotte area. This market has a lot of investors, but there are plenty of good deals to be had.
Should you need someone to bounce ideas off of, manage your rentals, broker your flips, etc, just let me know. We work great with investors.
Congratulations on retirement! That is amazing that you were able to flip so many while you were active! My husband is also active and we are buy and hold investors. Love being military members and investors!
Look forward to seeing you around the board.
First, thanks for your service. Congratulations on your retirement.

@Michael Gilder Welcome to BP and to Ft. Mill. As Michael Bowman mentioned above, the Charlotte market is alive with active investors. You will find plenty of opportunity. I would encourage you to check out MetrolinaReia.org and various meetups for the opportunity to meet like minded investors. There are subgroups that just meet in the Ft. Mill area as well as Charlotte. If you are up early and want to start today, PM me and I'll give you the details on a great bfast meetup just up i-77 at Arrowood that meets at 8:30.
Thanks all for the great welcome. I think this will be a great resource to bounce around ideas and get some great feedback. This will be my first venture into a large market like Charlotte and will definitely need some guidance.
