Hello Bigger Pockets,

My name is Tequila I've been in Houston for roughly 5 years. I've seen a ton of growth with real estate over the last 5 years. I wasn't sure when to enter the real estate business, but now I'm here. I've just recently past my Texas Real Estate Exam. I'm not only interested in sales, but also investment properties, hard money lending, tax lien, etc.

 Hello and welcome!  I am 59 years old and I found BP about 5 months and I am still learning.  I Graduated from college with honors and got a degree in business that had real estate as an emphasis.  I also got a broker license that same year of 1980.  Regardless of that degree I felt more comfortable in the construction business.  I have been in the construction business since I was 17.  If you think I can help you in any way please contact me at any time.  I have a couple friends in the town of Houston and one of them is quite wealthy having done well in the gas pipe business.  Good luck!
