Hi everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself. I am a new member here. Right now we are looking to buy fix n flips and buy and holds. We are active in several TN markets including Montgomery, Robertson, Davidson, Cheatham, and Dickson counties. We eventually want to move into wholesaling, but I need a bit more knowledge before I would feel comfortable. If anyone wants to chat or knows of any meetups with local investors, please feel free to reach out to me! I'd love to gain any knowledge and guidance along the way! Thanks for everything!!

Welcome, Alisha! I’m a realtor in the Montgomety county area. There are definitely some people who share your interest in investing in this area. I think a lot of people see potential here.

@Alisha Gilliam welcome to BP! 

This is what I would recommend if I was starting my REI journey from the beginning:

All the best!

@Andrew Fredrickson Thanks Andrew!! I have a checklist to get me started now. I have been listening to as many BP podcasts as I can pretty much daily! It is some great stuff and I really appreciate BP for putting out some great info. I am currently about half way through Cashflow Quadrant but I will definitely pick up his book next. Thanks for the awesome tips! I'll get a profile pic up soon! Haha.

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.
