Wanted to introduce myself, my name is Eric Bellefontaine, I am from the Greater Chicagoland area, currently out in Carpentersville, IL (the western suburbs).
I am currently a home owner and recently became more interested in finding a way to build a passive income to better support my family and ultimately achieve financial freedom. My goal right now is to buy my first investment property with-in the next year. I'm leaning towards doing rentals.
I'm a complete newbie to real estate investing and look forward to learning more from all of you.
