Hello Everyone, my name is Austin Burrous. I am brand new to BiggerPockets, and I have already learned so much from this community. Thank you!
Three week's ago I read a book called "Rich Dad Poor Dad" and realized I have been doing this money thing all wrong. I previously had a rental home that I purchased while in the Army. After separating from the service and moving back home, I rented it out for about 7 years. It was a positive experience, and I made some money. Wanting to look into real estate investing again, I found "The Book on Investing in Real Estate with No (and low) Money Down" by Brandon Turner. That book lead me here, thank goodness.
My goals are to use real estate rental properties to pay for retirement. I would like to own $1,000,000 in properties, free and clear, generating passive income by the time I am 60 years old. I would also like to invest in fix and flip houses to generate additional yearly income.
Again, I've already learned so much from this community, thanks!
Good to have you, @Austin Burrous !!
Welcome! I live in Atlanta as well. Also, I LOVE talking RE so if you’d like to meet to talk just name the place!
@Austin Burrous Welcome to BP! Glad you found the site and look forward to hearing about your future endeavors.

Welcome @Austin Burrous
I'm new as well from nearby Tucker, GA and have found this site to be incredibly useful. Also, I attended the Monthly Northern Atlanta Real Estate Meet-Up/Mastermind for the first time last week and highly recommend attending those to network with other Real Estate investors.
Welcome to Bigger Pockets. I suggest that you join a local real estate investors association. I recommend www.GAREIA.com. They offer great networking and training. Good luck and let me know if I can be of assistance.
Welcome, this is a great place to be!
Welcome to BP @Austin
Rich Dad Poor Dad was my gateway drug to real estate investing as well! Cheers!
