Hi All,

My name is Cody Lingle and I found BP looking for RE Podcasts to listen & learn from. My background is in architecture & construction management, currently working as a project manager in Oakbrook Terrace, IL. I am building my RE knowledge by listening to BP podcasts, reading, and analyzing properties. My wife and I are looking to invest in multi-family + value add properties in the Fox Valley area.

Welcome to BP @Cody Lingle !   you're right next door if you need help finding properties shoot me a message.  There's a ton of valuable info on this platform, continue listening to the podcasts and watching the webinars, you'll learn a lot. 

@Cody Lingle , Welcome to Bigger Pockets! I'm a construction management major out of WIU, living in Quincy IL. I spend a few weeks a year up in Palatine with my girlfriends family. I am looking for my first property down here in Quincy, but would not rule out investing near Palatine as my knowledge of the area grows. Good luck!

Welcome @Cody Lingle !
