Hey all ! My name is Kemar Daley and i'm a newcomer to BP and real estate investing, living in Cincinnati, Ohio. I have zero background in real estate but am in the process of educating myself and building relationships in the real estate community. I was born in Worcester, MA but grew up in Kingston Jamaica. I am currently a children's services worker in the investigations department. My ultimate goal with real estate investing is to build wealth and financial security for my family. I am mostly interested in pursuing buy and hold rentals.I look forward to developing more relationships with the BP community and learning more!

Welcome Lamar. I'm here in Cincinnati, and getting my footing as well. Id be willing to answer any questions you may have, within my ability to do so of course.
Thanks for the warm welcome all! @Doran Summers
G: my short term goals are to have enough money to invest in my first property by July(I’m thinking around $8,000, I’m not sure if I should shoot for more), join local real estate investing groups, network and connect with other investors in my area( at least 2 by March).
A: no achievements really
I: I’m pretty open to hearing what others are doing in terms of different investing niches. I’m mainly flu used on getting into single family and multi-family buy and holds
N: not sure
S: Adaptable, teachable, resourceful
Thanks for reaching out and being willing to do that @Corey Dessauer! What are you currently doing in terms of networking and what is your primary interest in real estate investing?
Hi @Kemar Daley and welcome to BP and the world of REI! It is a great site to learn, to network, and eventually to contribute to.
@Kemar Daley Welcome to BP! I purchased a duplex and househack in Cincy. Great market for RE investing and househacking is a great way to get started!
I also own my own insurance agency. Would be more than happy to meet some time and discuss RE. Best of luck!
