Hey all !

After a few months of stalking ya'll's posts, blogs and experiences, I am more than excited and happy to introduce myself as a new member to bigger pockets. I am also new to the area and a self proclaimed semi-sorta novice to the flipping scene.   I have "flipped " most of my residential properties at a nice profit, mostly in part to being a super savvy negotiator at the time of purchase and having pretty decent fixer upper skills to understand what market conditions are, how to increase value and bring the best bang for the buck when renovating.   I have also had the opportunity, or LUCK so to speak  to have purchased property at auction and renovate and rent to awesome renters who afforded me a residual income while building equity in the property ~ Additionally the same renters offered to buy the property when I decided to sell it, therefore again, my luck, generating a nice $30K profit.  With that being said, I have always had a desire to flip and consider myself to have a basic understanding of the process.  I am currently residing in Denver, North Carolina on Lake Norman,  about 30 minutes of Charlotte.  Understanding Charlotte to be one of  the fastest emerging markets and seeing the explosion in growth on the west end of the lake, I am 100% confident in my dedication and competencies to start legit flipping. I know that the devil is in the details and the pre-work and due diligence are the most critical parts of the process, trust me I am not averse to hard work and research.  I am looking for a professional flipper that would be willing to spend some time, preferably in the Charlotte area, with me as a pay it forward.  I fully understand that in this business time is money, time is of the essence and your advice and mentor-ship is invaluable.  With this understood, I am looking for networking opportunities in which  I can learn perhaps attend an auction or two and give me the 101 on the area and a few experiences, good and bad~ not SPOON feed me. I appreciate ya'll's time in advance and am excited to be part of this community here on bigger pockets.  

@Julie A. - welcome to BP! I too am pretty new to the community, but have loved listening to the podcast and reading the blog on a weekly basis. I really enjoy the community that has been built around all things real estate investing. As Matt said it sounds like you have had a pretty good start with your investing career, maybe 1 or 2 flips for profit could be considered "luck" but after as many as it sounds like you have done, I think you just found your niche!!

I manage a small real estate investment company based in Denver, started flipping with a few buddies in 2008, and branched off on my own in 2014. We don't operate in NC, but have done deals all over the country, specifically buying @ auction where we have purchased and sold or (rented) north of 250 auction properties. I personally think it is still the best way to find distressed properties. Needless to say I would be more than happy to help you in anyway that I can while being in Denver, obviously if you can find someone in NC that would be more ideal and you won't hurt my feelings if you don't want help from a stranger on the other side of the country. 

Keep up the great work!!

Hey Julie! I am investor in the charlotte area. I also live in the the great little town of Denver Nc. I spend a lot of time networking with people in our area and looking at deals. I have recently been more focused on my buy and hold properties but am constantly interested in doing some flips in our part of town. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. I’m in touch with my agent, contractors and other investors on a weekly basis so hopefully I can be of some assistance!
