Licensed realtor looking to transition into investing.

7 Replies

Hey guys! Newbie here. I have been a licensed broker in NC for a little over two years. I am very excited about making the transition into investing. I have done tons of studying over the years, and I am ready to really dive in and start making things happen. My interests are fix and flip, and multi-family investing. I am an open book, ready to learn more and take action. I welcome any tips and advice, and I thank you in advance for any guidance! Cheers!

Word of advice: Be VERY aware that you are licensed. Make sure to follow all your State rules and NAR rules(if you're a Realtor). When looking at an off market property, wear 1 hat (investor or Realtor), and be careful if you try to switch hats mid deal. Stay on the up and up, and you should be good.

This is something that I had been concerned with. Luckily, my team leader at Keller Williams is an investor herself. So as long as I follow her guidance, I should be fine. Thank you for the tip though! I definitely want freedom, not trouble.
