Hi, my name is Isaac Pak and I am from Buena Park, CA. Nice to meet you all.

about me: 

I'm 23 years old, just got out of college, and I recently became interested in real estate investing. Last year, I graduated from Hope International University with a Church Ministry degree. That career path is not my passion. It was something that was pushed upon me ever since I was young. It took me a while to get it, but I eventually decided that I should live my life how I want to live it. I am now trying to properly educate myself and figure out money so that I can pursue my passions to the fullest. Right now I work as a foreman at my uncle's mold engineering company. I am grateful for that job and for my uncle's generosity to give me that job, but every day I go to work I feel like so much precious time is being sucked away. I spend most of my evenings and weekends trying to learn and figure out how I can escape this "rat-race", as Robert Kiyosaki puts it. As I kept searching, I eventually found the world of real estate which led me to finding bigger pockets. I hope I can learn more and make valuable relationships through this site. Thanks!

Hi Jack! Thanks for replying and I appreciate your welcome! It's pretty cool to chat with someone local.

I read your description and found out you mainly buy and sell raw land. That's very interesting. I haven't looked into that part of the real estate world but maybe I should! 

@Isaac Pak that is correct.  I have several reasons why I primarily invest in raw vacant land.  Land is definitely something I would consider looking at if I were a newbie starting out.

This is just my 2 cents.  Happy to help further. Please PM me.  And once again, welcome to BiggerPockets, Isaac!
