My name is Ivan I am a new investor I have 3 units so far in NJ, I am currently investing part time but I'm looking to transition to full time. I want to do 3 flips before the year ends (2016) currently looking for deals in NJ (Linden, Rahway, Elizabeth, Roselle,Jersey City, etc.) because I am new I am looking for references and tips and a solid contractor in my area central NJ . I buy and hold but if there is a deal for a flip I'm willing to do the work and work with partners as well . My background is in finance and economics  if I can assist anyone with anything do not hesitate to contact me here at bigger pockets.

Welcome to BP!! Im looking  to make that transition as well. I am a wholeslaer in the are maybe we can help each other achieve that goal. Feel free to PM If your interested in exchanging some ideas.

Hey Ivan,

Welcome to BP.  If you're looking for a solid contractor, I would suggest coming to some of the REIAs and real estate meet-ups in the area.  Some of the contractors attend the meetings and you could also network with other flippers in the area. 

Regards,

Marc

Marc thank you for your reply when it comes to real estate jargon and acronyms i'm still learning what is an REIA? and if you know of any real estate meet ups you can suggest that would also be great thanks again.

 Chris it's fantastic to hear from someone so close to me I have PM'ed you thanks again.

@Ivan Correa my bad. Real Estate Investing Association (REIA) there's quite a few in Northern NJ. They provide an opportunity to network, education, and events relating to real estate. Also, check meetup.com for other real estate groups in your area. Im in Newark a lot, so pm me with any questions.

Thanks,

Marc

Welcome Ivan, 

Seasoned investor and mentor here. I do both the B&H's and flip opportunities. I am a heavy contractor and work the entire state (and more). I prefer the single family first time home buyer property opportunities but have done mixed use and multi's as well. I have in the past and currently invest with REI group members in NJ as well as fellow BPers as well. Any questions just reach out...

@Ivan Correa Hi Ivan! I am also an investor in those areas. I just did a flip and am in the process of selling it now. I also own a couple of 2 families in Elizabeth. Feel free to reach out if you need any advice or suggestions. My husband is a realtor so that helps us a lot. We are still new at this but this is a great website to learn!

hello Ivan! I'm also a newbie and planning to purchase a multi-family in Union County. I'm currently looking in Elizabeth. If you need some help in interior painting I can help. PM me if you wants to share some info.
