I'm from Arizona and have had the privilege to call the Valley of the Sun my home for my whole life. I am happily married with no kids (unless you count the dogs) and am currently in school for my BA in Business. Nearly the last ten years of my life has been spent in the corporate world and while I am grateful for all that I've learned during that time, I know I'll be truly be happiest working for myself.
I have been wanting to get into real estate for quite some time and have decided to actively drive my career in this direction. I am starting on wholesaling to help me learn, grow and establish myself in the industry. Eventually, I want to be an investor and establish a solid rental portfolio, though I am seriously interested in flipping. My own research led me to Bigger Pockets and I am amazed at the true sense of community all members seem to share - it's quite refreshing to see. Please introduce yourself, especially if you're in the Phoenix market.
Welcome to BiggerPockets Danny and good luck wholesaling!
Welcome to BP @Danny Overfield ! I do wholesaling in Phoenix as well, let me know if I can answer any questions.
@Danny Overfield welcome to BP, I’ve taken the road that you’re currently on I started out wholesaling and converted that into a growing portfolio. Likewise I am currently living in STV welcome again and let me know if you need assistance with anything
Welcome. It is good that you found BP. There is certainly a wealth of information and experience here.
It sounds like you have a good game plan. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions on the smaller steps along the way. I would suggest that you continue your research and consider your path in finer detail (for the nearest steps of the path). Wholesaling...there is more than one way to find the motivated seller. How will you find them? What will you do when you find them?
You now have all sorts of resources at your fingertips. Don't hesitate to take us up on an offer to help you with any questions. Best of luck. Hope to see you out there...beating the heat in the PHX streets....and/or beating the streets in the PHX heat!

Good luck to you! Once you get momentum you won't look back.
I have a fix and flip company (White Fig Homes) in the Phoenix area and would love a chance to buy anything you are going to wholesale. We buy a handful of new projects each month so it will be great to start working together.
