BP Family,

I have moved back to the DFW area and am pumped to be back here! I am a licensed appraiser currently working in commercial valuation. I started off doing residential appraisal work in DFW from 2005 to 2008 and grew to love the market here in DFW. I have acquired several properties using the BRRRR strategy and am looking to do more. Are there some local investor groups you could recommend? I am also looking to connect with wholesalers, investors currently building portfolios, and would love any recommendations you would be willing to share. Thanks in advance for your input and I look forward to connecting with you!

@Josiah Smelser Welcome to BP! Yes, there are really good groups in DFW. I personally know of Dennis Henson (look up AREA Real Estate Buying and Investing.) Nice active group with lots of great interaction, speakers, etc.

I will be personally speaking there on August 26th. Hope to see you there! :)

@Josiah Smelser Welcome to BP! I am a big advocate of Lifestyles Unlimited. They pretty much have the BRRRR method down to an exact science and a lot of good networking opportunities
