Hello, everyone! The podcast encouraged me to make this profile. I'm starting with the goal of getting my real estate licence and then maybe being a realstate agent for a while. I live in Everett, Wa, I'm 23 and a mom of 3, I work graveyards at a grocery store. My husband is a contractor. His mom was talking to us about flipping and renting out houses with us in the future, she was telling me I should start researching and talking to real estate agents from there came my idea to become a real estate agent. While looking for study material I found the BiggerPockets podcast I have to say it is very inspirational! That is my story any advice any one has i wouldn't mind reading/ listening to Thanks for the awesome podcast! I started at episode 1 and plan on listening to all the episodes.
Welcome @Tiffany B Alexander Everett is a good spot to be for real estate investing. Still some opportunities available if you are willing to put in the work.
I am definitely willing to put in work.
@Tiffany B Alexander welcome to BP! This is maybe your best resource- spend hours on here.
I'm in Everett too. There is actually a REIA class in Everett that's on getting started on Real estate investing on January 13th at the best western on Pacific.
Details at www.reiawa.com
Thank you! I appreciate the links and advice. I'm definitely signing up for wa REIA have the extra resources, I'm glad I know where to look when I do.
@Tiffany B Alexander Welcome! The podcasts & forums are a great place to start, as previously mentioned. There are also a couple meetups in the area that will be beneficial for you as you start to build out your team.
Once you start to get an idea of what your long-term goal is you will have a much easier time figuring out how to put the plan in place. Sort of the, "Start with the end in mind" mentality.
In addition to networking with other investors at local events (REIA, meetups, etc.) I'd recommend using the keyword alerts function here on BP, so that you can be notified of discussions that are either in your area, or are of interest to you (i.e. "Everett" or "House Hacking"). Does your mother-in-law have any real estate investing experience?? Sounds like you have a great start on building your team, since you are looking into getting your real estate license, and your husband is a contractor.
There's a monthly meetup in Marysville, WA through the cascadia investors alliance. It's typically the 4th Monday of every month @ 7PM, at the Bob's Burgers in Marysville. It's a very laid-back group of people who love to talk real estate, I'd recommend checking that out as well.
Good luck, hope to see you around!
