Hello everyone. I'm brand new to BP and much to learn with REI. My experience is limited to a light rehab of my own property and helping a friend with his complete fix and flips. His success and that of others has inspired me to pursue investing further. I live in a small town 45 minutes North of New Orleans and am a project manager in the manufacturing industry.
My initial goal is to fix and flip SFH, with a long term strategy to buy and hold for appreciation. I'm currently networking however I can, meeting investors and figuring out what market(s) I want to target.
I'm looking forward to learning from and adding value to the BP community.
Hi @Brian Douglas . Welcome to BP! This is the best site on the web for anything and everything related to REI. I'm both a realtor and investor in the New Orleans area. If I can be of service, let me know. Good luck and happy investing!

Welcome to the site! I'm pretty close to you in Laplace. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
I'm in New Orleans and am also a new investor. I'm looking to start investing down here but I have been curious about what's available in Hammond, especially with regards to student housing near SLU. Thanks for reaching out and hopefully we can be of help to each other.
I’m in Ponchatoula, my wife and I competed our first flip last year in downtown Hammond. Currently downsizing my personal residence and will be saving to purchase our next property in the next 12 months. I’ve got a friend who is an agent/investor who got me in/out of the flip. He’s pretty good about sharing pocket deals and off market stuff.
Welcome to BP!

@Andrew Syrios , thank you sir!
@Denver Gray , I'm very familiar with the Hammond area (all the older bars from the college days). I work in the Kenner area so, I have interest there also. I'll reach out and see if we can connect on either side of the lake. Coffee on me
