Hi Joyce,

Welcome to BP, this is a great website and resource for all types of real estate investing.

I always recommend these 3 things to people beginning in Real Estate Investing:

1) Do a lot of research here

2) Do not spend a lot of money with coaches, it would be much better to put that money to work and learn from experience, I'm not against coaches or education, but you need to be careful as there are some that are really bad

3) There are many real estate clubs out there, visit them, select your favorites and meet other investors working your area. You can find info on clubs here and also you can look at Networking is key to success.

Bill Tan has a networking group that meets once a month in Arcadia, this is the link:

and there is also a FIBI in Pasadena:

InvestClub for women is good, and they meet in Glendale:

There are several other good ones... but I suggest you start with those clusb and see what others are doing.

Cheers! see you around...
