Alabama neeewbie

Greetings all, long time lurker...first time poster. I'm from Alabama and hoping to get into real estate investing. Looking to network and learn from experienced individuals on here and HOPEFULLY find a mentor(or mentors) but would appreciate any help/advice. 

Very interested in flipping/rehabbing houses and have tons of saved houses and properties in and around my area. Everywhere from Zillow to realtor.com, craigslist,homepath, local realty groups etc....it's become a slight obsession :) 

Thanks much

I'd absolutley love to get up with you on that. I'm a bit aways from Birmingham though...but would seriously be interested in learning more. Especially since there are pretty much NO real estate groups anywhere around where I am. I'm near Eufaula....have you ever heard of it?

Hello Joe,

Nice to meet you.

Here's a list of REI clubs in Alabama I found (I can't personally endorse any as I haven't made time to attend YET):

There's at least one in Montgomery, might be worth the relatively small investment in time and money just to network.

All the best!

I’d love to introduce myself. I’m on a similar mission/goal to find a mentor.

I have a contractor background with electrical and HVAC mostly. And I am willing to help with any repairs/replacements in exchange for knowledge and helping me get started.
