Hello all,

I am an analyst at an investment firm in Western Massachusetts. I have just begun my journey into REI and stumbled upon BP while searching for information on various financing techniques.

I plan to primarily be a buy and hold investor, and hope to start out by house hacking a foreclosed multi family. I took my first steps today, buy having a lunch meet with an investor to I know, and reaching out to a broker to begin a relationship!

I'm very excited about moving forward, but still have a LOT to learn!

I would love to get in touch with seasoned investors in my area, and participate in some investor groups!

Thanks, and hope to participate here in the future.

Ben, your profile says Worcester, but if you are working instead in Western Mass, rather than Central MA, you should attend Western Mass REIA.

If you wish to attend events in the Worcester area, and meet other like-minded investors, then consider Mass Landlords for buy and hold and NWCLA for Northern Worcester County.  You might also check out our Black Diamond event in Worcester next Tuesday, which is free.

@Filipe Pereira I will be focusing on the Hampden and Hampshire counties.

@Steve Bracero I will definitely check out Mass Landlords and look around on meetup! Thanks.

@Ann Bellamy The closest "major" city to me would be Springfield, but for some reason the BP site did not have that listed as an option. I grew up outside of Worcester, so I am very familiar with that area. If I was a bit closer to that county I would definitely check out your Black Diamond event. Hopefully someday I can make one of the events!

Oh nice! You are fairly close! Let me know if you want to meet up sometime. I'm a licensed agent in MA, as well as a property manager. Feel free to send me a dm if you think I can be of help!
