Hi Bigger Pockets fam- My name is Said Gaida from Bloomfield NJ and I am excited to joining the community. I started listening to the BP podcast and was instantly impressed by the abundance of knowledge on the show.. I am new to real estate and recently bought my first multi - family home. I am house-hacking and hope to build a portfolio thru multifamily units and build enough cashflow to get out of the rat race. I like the strategy of fix & hold and want to establish multiply rental properties in the area I grew up in. I am looking for properties in the Essex county Area, but am open to the best opportunities available . I extremely open to coaching & ready to help contribute as much as I can to the community. I look forward to learning from all the great role models in the community.
Hello @Said Gaida welcome to BP and good luck on your journey.
Welcome to BP Said and best of luck investing!
Hi @Said Gaida welcome to BP! Congratulations on your first home as well! There are a few meetups in our area that you can network with other investors as well. If you need the info on them, just let me know. Good luck!!
I would love to know about local meet ups Dan, can you shoot me the info please
I am new to BP as well (this is my first post) and moved to West Orange, NJ, about 9 months ago. We finally moved to the suburbs after living in Jersey City for ~5 years. I will mostly be consulting while my wife drives the business, looking primarily at SFH rehabs in West Orange, South Orange and Maplewood. I will be attending my first auction this Tuesday to try and learn the ropes before researching and showing up to bid of properties. Best of luck to you - hope to see you around.
@Said Gaida Hello from Livingston! I'm also planning on attending my first MeetUps soon. I'd be happy to meet you at one.

Hi, I also live in Essex County. Can someone let me know the details of any North Jersey meet ups? Thanks
