Hello Bigger Pocket fellas!!!

I'm Juan Bravo a current farm manager and prospect investor. I have never purchased a real estate but, in recent years, I have become more and more interested in this world. Nonetheless I look forward to learn on how to get FREEDOM through investing in rentals and vacation homes. I LOVE agriculture (specially if it involves Puerto Rico) for which I'm always open for properties with a lot of land. My areas of interest are the east & west sides of Puerto Rico and the Delmarva Peninsula (DE, MD, VA eastern shores). I hope to learn a lot from this community and become a great investor as well as make some good networking and relations with other investors. Glad to be here!
