Hi BiggerPockets!

My Name is Joseph Aghia. Growing up, my parents had a 3 family home in RI, so I'm used to some of the headaches of dealing with tenants. In 2014, my wife and I bought a 2-family home in the Hillside area in Medford, Ma. We are just a stones throw away from Tufts University and the new Green Line Extension stop (whenever it finally gets here). 

I'm an engineer working in Kendall Square in Cambridge. My goals for Real Estate Investing is to get a passive income stream that can support my wife and I once we retire. I'm also interested in eventually getting more actively involved in Real Estate Investing, but I'm just learning and reading up on this now. 

This is an amazing forum and a wonderful resource. My wife mentioned Bigger Pockets to me a few times, but I didn't check it out until recently. I should have learned that I need to listen to her more. 

Welcome Joe! You’re wife was right, BP is an invaluable resource. I definitely recommend checking out their podcasts as well.
What areas are you looking in? My W-2 is commercial project management and I’ve been doing a lot of work in One Kendall Sq lately. Feel free to DM me, I’m no expert but have one multifamily and listing a 2-year live in flip this Summer. I’m always happy to chat! Good luck!

Welcome to BP @Joseph Aghia ! That's a great location and BP is definitely a great source to get information and your questions answered.

If you have any questions or would want to set up a time to talk more about the local market, I would be happy to help! I work in Arlington and do a lot of work in Medford and have property there as well.
