Hello All,

My name is Darren and I'm a newbie here in St. Louis, MO. I have some experience in Real Estate, but I'm eager to learn more and build my path to financial freedom. My experience in Real Estate is from helping my uncle paint and do some small rehabs on his rental properties. but nothing major. My long term goal is to buy and hold, but I'm not against fix and flips. 

I'm currently researching and analyzing deals, but now I'm ready to get started. I have some funds set aside and plan to take a loan from my 401k to get started.

Hi Darren,

Welcome to BP. I just joined myself and am getting started in real estate investing, with similar long term interests. 

I’m in wildwood and work in chesterfield if you ever want to meet up and discuss real estate.

Best luck,


Fellow STL'ers, I'm in a similar boat at the beginning of the investing journey. But I do have some rentals now with SFR, duplex, and condos. I live in South City and work in Kirkwood. We should definitely grab a beer or coffee (whatever your style) and talk more. I'm sure we can help each make progress on our goals!
