New Investor in Atlanta Metro area

6 Replies

Hi BP Family, My name is Nick Benoit. I am a new and upcoming real estate Investor in the Atlanta Metro area. I work at a software company in Midtown Atlanta and have always struggled with not truly loving what I do. I love Software Development but working for a job that controls my time and money was something I did not want to do in the long run. I’m looking to build long term wealth as many on BP are. My niche is Buy and Hold real estate investing and I want to start by purchasing 3-6 single family/small multi family properties before the end of 2019. I’m currently in the stage of learning all I can about my niche and have already begun my plans to get there. I am hoping to find a mentor who Is knowledgeable In rental properties and I will do all I can to provide any service necessary to learn and grow. I hope to be super active on here and share my journey along the way. Thanks for being an Awesome community for Real Estate Investors like myself!!! Thanks BP!

@Nicholas Benoit Welcome to BP! 

Some resources I've enjoyed:


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 113Jay 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 also recommend all the tax advice given by my fellow CPAs on the BP Podcast.
