Hello BP community, 

I'm really excited to take this time and reach out to all you new comers, and veterans of the site. I've used it many time In the past but only recently have I decided to utilize my profile and connect with other individuals. I've read multiple books on investing, I've worked in multiple fields of real estate (Leasing agent for 3 years, real estate sales agent, property manager, and community association manager) and i'm ready to put my knowledge to work for myself instead of others. I currently have been in negotiations with a man who owns a property in Boca Raton fl that is in need of complete rehab. His asking price is a bit ridiculous but I'm constantly calling him to see if he will be willing to reach a number where we both are happy. I'll be sure to update you all with the outcome; and who knows, I might even extend the deal to the community. ;)

I really appreciate your time in reading my post and I look forward to speaking with you all.

 Thank you very much. 

My plan is to be financially independent by the age of 30. 

I'm looking into purchasing my first buy and hold this year.

I'm in Fort Lauderdale looking for similar investments, if you want to chat sometime let me know.  

BTW I'm also the VP of a pretty big roofing company down here, so let me know if I can be of assistance,  I have a lot of connections in the contracting world.
