Hello BiggerPockets community! My name is Jackie. I’m a 30 y/o full time claims adjuster at a successful insurance company. I didn’t know it when I started there 2.5 years ago, but I’ve learned many very useful skills in this job that I put towards my real estate endeavors; such as negotiation strategies and interpreting many different types of Leases and contracts. I purchased my first condo 5 years ago when I moved out of my parents house at 25. I always knew I wanted my own business, I always knew I wanted financial freedom, but I didn’t always know how to get there. I even went to school for business management with a concentration in Entrepreneurship. One day I picked up a book on real estate investing that was laying around at a relatives house... and read the whole thing in just a day or two. I was so excited and motivated. “THIS is what I want to do,” I thought. “THIS will make me happy.” Now fast forward a few years and I’m living in my 2nd condo with my roommate covering the mortgage, and my 1st condo is being rented out. And this is just the beginning :)
Congratulations on discovering the path early! When I was your age, I was busy "touring" the world in a camouflage suit, marrying the wrong woman, and remaining a slave to limiting beliefs instilled by a poor family. I wasn't on food stamps or eating government cheese, so I thought I had made a good life for myself!
Keep educating yourself and looking for deals. You're well on your way to financial freedom!
thank you. I’m hoping to learn a lot through BiggerPockets. I’m very excited for what’s to come.
