Greetings,

My name is Rob. I am new to real estate investing in the North Carolina. I own a few properties in Ghana, West Africa, by inheritance, but have not done any deals in the United States. My goal is complete my first deal before my birthday in January. At this juncture, I am reading, researching and doing my best to engage with those who have experience in real estate investing. My hope is to connect with other North Carolina real estate investors, specifically in the Winston Salem, Charlotte or Greensboro areas, who can help me in the execution of plan to create passive income through the buying and holding of multifamily units.  I am, however, also open to looking at single family units, but I have narrowed the criteria of single family units to those around my alma mater, Wake Forest. I look forward to plenty of fruitful dialogue and accessing the wealth of information participants on this site possess. 

Thanks!

Hey Rob, I am also just starting out in Winston-Salem and have a similar strategy, though I'm not looking to focus on MFH.  We should connect some time over coffee.  Shoot me a note when you get the chance.

Welcome Robert! I am in Winston Salem and own a single-family rental by Wake Forest :) It's a great area! I am also a real estate agent in the WS area if you have any questions. 

I would suggest joining the Triad REIA if you want to get plugged in with other investors in the area. They have 2 lunches in WS and Greensboro every month as well as other meet-ups and learning opportunities.

I am new to Bigger Pockets myself, and am finding it to be a wonderful community full of knowledge!
