Hello BPF folks,
I am a RE agent based in Huntington, NY.
I was a title closer several years ago, both commercial and residential. I thought then about getting my license. Two kids and a major life change looming and I took the plunge.
While I love doing they typical residential RE agent role, I really want to expand! Multiple steams of income is the name of the game.
I want to get into flips, working towards the middle to higher end eventually, as well as rentals, ideally small multi family. The goal is to have enough of that income that I can raise two kids and put them through collage!

Welcome to Bigger Pockets.
Welcome in the community! Let me know if you need help estimating a rehab. Insurance companies pay me to do it for them. I can typically give you ballpark based on just zillow pics.
Awesome, thanks that is great! I will definitely do that!
Welcome to BP! @Christina Tabacco That is a great goal to put two kids through college.
Here are some more resources... if you have't got enough already :)
Episode 108 - Grant Cardone... Just listen…
Episode 283 Paul Thompson - Quite a new episode but I would think everyone would agree this is a top episode. Mainly, the systems implemented are fascinating (VA, automated offers, etc.) Plus...escape velocity...
Episode 113 – Jay Papasan - Very practical slow and steady advice
Episode 221 - Tim Shiner - his concept of equity build up and "shearing the sheep" shows some of the flexibility of real estate vs a 401k
Last but not least, I strongly recommend all the tax advice given by my fellow CPAs.

Hello and welcome to BP. I just returned from a trip to Huntington Station to meet with a group of my investors, beautiful place.
You have some great goals and they are very obtainable. Take action and let me know if I can be of assistance. We purchase 20 or so properties a month and also have apartments and mobile home parks. We started with nothing and within 100 days we had over 100 doors. Massive action, determination, perseverance and hard work lead to success.
Let me know how I can help.
