New Investor out of Hampton, Virginia

4 Replies

Hi everyone! My name is Bek and I am looking to acquire my first flip by the end of 2018. I am originally from Maryland, but I live in Hampton/Yorktown Virginia area thanks to the Air Force. I started listening to BP podcasts on my last deployment because one can only watch so many bootleg movies. From there on, I started reading as many real estate/business books/BP posts as I could get my hands on. My experience with investing dwells down to managing a family portfolio during the last 5 years of this bull market. We are now looking to diversify and begin our real estate adventure. Look forward to meeting and interacting with fellow BP members!

I know I'm late to the party, but welcome! Glad to see another person from Virginia! I'm an investor as well, also looking to do my first flip and I'm also a licensed real estate agent. So let me know if there's anything I can help you with.

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.
