New to the Industry - New Jersey

5 Replies

I'm from Northern New Jersey and just getting started in my real estate career.  I just passed my state real estate exam and connected with a broker to get setup in the coming weeks.  I have a background in accounting (CPA) and have worked at a real estate PE firm in the past (accounting side, not deal side).  

I have some experience in project management for a couple of smaller retail locations (one 3,500 sq ft and one 2,100 sq ft) which were complete renovations.  I have some property management opportunities underway to help generate some cash flow on a steady basis, plan to act as an agent for some additional cash flow, and also have an interest in flipping homes.  Along the way I plan on investing in some buy and hold opportunities as they come up to really setup some long term wealth.

I'm currently scouring the market for deals which are few an far between (there are a 1,000 of me out there) but always looking for different ways to get involved.  I look forward to being a part of the Bigger Pockets community to hopefully make some great connections as well as learn as much as I can.


Hey @Matthew P., welcome to BP.  There is tons of great information here.  If you're also looking to connect with local investors, @John Errico runs a meet up right in Weekhawken. It meets on the 4th Thursday of the month. Send either of us a PM and we can shoot you more info

Thanks for all the info and connections.  Will definitely try and make the next meeting in the Hudson county area.  

I'm open to working/investing in all of NJ so distance doesn't factor in too much for me if the opportunity is right.  Appreciate all the help.
