Hello everyone, my name is John Higgins Jr and I am making my first post on the bigger pockets forum. I was brought to bigger pockets researching online and watched a podcast. I love the forum and the website. Now I am here writing my first forum to start meeting some great people. I've always wanted to be involved real estate and I now have found my passion. I would like to begin wholesaling real estate to start making some fast cash but long term would like to be investing in rentals. I am looking for a mentor in the Reno NV area and the Boise ID area that would be willing to mentor me into wholesaling and doing a deal we could share. I have a lot of knowledge in construction and a strong work ethic. I'm very motivated to get my career in real estate investing going. Any help and advice is greatly appreciated.
Welcome to BiggerPockets @John Higgins !!! This is the place to be to learn, network, ask questions and be inspired in the world of investing. Be sure to check out the calculators and practice running the numbers. Soon it will become second nature and when the time comes can help protect yourself from making a bad purchase. Anytime you are in the area be sure to make it to the many local meetups!
See you around the site!
Thanks Cody, I will be in the area around June 10th for about a week. Will there be any meet ups in the Boise area around this time? Is there a good source where I could find out when these meet ups are? JT
@Jonna Weber usually posts the BiggerPockets meet ups, but be sure to look on Meetup.com for Boise Investor Group. They have weekly as well as monthly meetings. They are always a good time!
Hi John, the Boise Investor Group meetup this month is June 9. Their meetings are always really helpful and well attended. They also have a smaller meetup every Tuesday morning for newer investors, and it's really great. You can find info for both of them at meetup.com. I hope you have a good trip!
