Hello Everyone, My name is Aaron Johnson and I live in New York City.  I am looking to get into real estate investing. My current occupation is Community Associate for the New York Department of Education. I am looking to gain much knowledge from bigger pockets and connect with some really great people on here.  Also any local Rei groups recommended i should check out.  Thank You in advance community. 

I've spent some time in NYC though I'm from Southern California. The Millionaire Real Estate Investor from Gary Keller is a good book for anyone getting started. Welcome to the BP community!

Welcome to BP Aaron!

Since you're from the Bronx, do a search for Bronx Mastermind. It's run by @Cesar Rojas. There is usually one every second Wednesday every month. Hope to see you there one day!

Hi @Aaron Johnson and welcome to BP. You have definitely come to the right place for investing in real estate. Here you will have everything you can think of books, webinars, podcasts, and the forums to help you out. I say you drown yourself in this stuff and learn as much as you can. If you have questions need help take it to the forum and someone (if not many) are willing to help. Good luck to you
