Howdy from Allen, Texas!  

My name is Steven Snyder, and I'm currently starting down the path towards my first deal in real estate.  I plan to focus on small multifamily (2-4) units in the North Dallas area with interest in moving to larger (5+) units as time goes on.  I'd also like to invest in self-storage and mobile home parks at some point.  I'm still focused on reading as much as I can get my hands on about real estate but plan to be ready for my first deal by next year.  An interest in building a solid family legacy and a path beyond the corporate world lead me to BiggerPockets.  I look forward to meeting like-minded individuals here.  

I'm a corporate CPA by trade, and my wife and I also run a T-Shirt printing business locally.  We have two children:  a 16-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son.  All four of us participate in ATA Taekwondo, and we just earned our 1st Degree Black Belts in June.  

Welcome to BP Steven. I’m also a CPA, and I live in Lewisville area. I quit my full time accounting job at the beginning of this year to focus full time on real estate and my mortgage brokerage, and I’m not looking back. 

BP is a wealth of knowledge and information, so take advantage of it as you prepare for your first purchase. Let me know if you ever need anything or want to just meet up and grab coffee or lunch. 

Thank you, Tyler.  Congrats on your recent career change as well.  BP has already been very helpful, but I don't even think I've scratched the surface yet.  My long term goal is to transition out of the corporate world, so it's nice to meet others succeeding with similar goals.  

@Steven Snyder   Welcome!  I've been both a commercial lender and investor lender in this market for a long time.  I used to finance a number of self storage and mobile home parks in my commercial days.  I'm happy to answer any type of underwriting questions you might have about those asset classes.  I have closed any deals in a few years, but the underwriting method rarely changes.  Welcome aboard and let me know if I can help.

Hey Steven, send me a message and lets discuss your goals. I work for an investment brokerage, and we exclusively work with investors who are searching for properties to fix and flip/buy and rent out.

Send me a message if you ever have any questions or are looking for property in North DFW. I have 3 to 5 properties come across my desk each week.
