Just introducing myself to the community! I'm an active duty Army officer just getting started in the real estate investing game and am having SO MUCH FUN so far!
My partner and I are looking at buy & hold and fix & flip properties in the greater Colorado Springs, CO area. We're open to other markets if the deal is right.
I love meeting and getting to know people, especially positive people committed to success...and BP is full of just those type of folk. So I'm looking forward to chatting with you!
@Mike Robb - Thanks! Just PMd you. San Diego, huh? Sounds like a hardship assignment. Hope you can slog through it.
Welcome to BP and to the real estate game! We live in Denver but do a lot of work in Colorado Springs because we can't in good conscience recommend investing here. (In fact, my wife and I just partnered with some past clients to buy a SFH with a carriage house and are doing Airbnb short-term rentals in both.)
Anyway, we're big fans of the Springs. Awesome to hear you're diving in. Good luck!
Hooah! Welcome, @Thadeous Larkin !! BP will keep informed, educated and motivated. I was also an Army Officer - Intelligence. I got out in 2015 and have been doing real estate and franchising business since. My partner and I recently relocated from Northern Virginia to Colorado Springs.
We have seen success investing and plan on growing our business here. Would love to connect with new and experienced investors.
If you have any questions, recommendations or would like to get together and chat about the way-forward - would love to get to know you and goals more.
You should connect with @Brent Bowers . He's doing a lot of wholesaling down there and was an Army officer too!
@James Carlson - Thanks, man! My fiancee lives in Denver (LoHi...she's way more hip than I am), so I'm up there from time to time. Let me know if I can ever buy you a coffee or a beer or an organic fair-trade hibiscus kombucha and we can chat real estate.
@Ernest Chamblee - I lived in NoVa for a short period of time, too. Spent 8 years in Virginia total. I'm going to take you up on your offer of getting together. PM headed your way.
@Kyle Doney - Headed to his REIA event tonight (unless I'm ordered to stay at work late)! I'll be sure to say "hello." Thanks for the heads up.
@Thadeous Larkin Welcome sir! Glad to have another in CO. I live in the Denver area and am a reservist up in the Ft. Collins area once a month. I have been interested in the Springs market as well.
You forgot non-GMO.
Drinking a good IPA is about as hipster as I get. I'll take you up on that offer when I'm down there sometime.
