Things that you might want to share include: your real name, your background in real estate, where you're from, what you do, what your goals are in real estate, and how you came to join BiggerPockets. Nick Duffy from Yorkville IL here. I have had an interest in real estate for sometime but failed to take action until recently. I am now a newly licensed broker with a goal of making real estate a full time profession. Currently I have a wonderful job, but it won’t get me and my family to the lifestyle we desire fast enough. Looking for cash flowing investments in the single family category w/ a goal of financial freedom in 5 years. Joined BiggerPockets after listening to several of the podcasts. I’m excited to connect, learn, and grow with this community. Nick


Welcome. Currently living in Germany on a 3 year job assignment for my husband but we just bought our 9th property...this one in Lisle,  the rest in Naperville.
