Hello!

My name is Michael and I'm a real estate investor in Alaska. I currently own 1 SF, 1 MF and looking to add.

Right now I'm trying to build a team including a real estate agent, lender, contractors, and a mentor. I currently have a spouse and close friend who will be investing with me. 

In the next few months I would like to have purchased another investment property whether its a buy and hold or fix-and-flip. 

Thank you for all the content everyone provides!!

Welcome to the forums. While you can find an answer to almost every question in here, both podcasts are a great educational resource if you haven’t checked them out.

 Thank you Connor! I've listened to about 30+ podcasts but need to start tackling my booklist. 

@Michael Burlison Welcome indeed! I am an investor first myself - having been around managing multi-family properties since I hit 16 years and could drive! I'd love to be part agent part mentor if you want to add me to your team. I love the chance to share what I've learned and to serve people. @Connor Dunham on here already is proving to be a great guy to be connected to as well.

Hi I have used Kris Hughes for MF with Homestate Mortgage.  Very Make it Happen minded and very aggressive in terms of keeping realtors in line.  I will use her again.

The last one is a post that will help you choose an “investor friendly” real estate agent. There are many agents out there, but it’s important to choose the right one.
