Hello All,

My name is Ray Jones and I am a new investor in the Washington DC Area.  I am looking to earn passive income through rental properties.  A friend of mine introduced me to Bigger Pockets and I have learned SO much in a very short amount of time from the Podcasts and forums.  I am looking to network with other Real Estate enthusiast in my area as well as in other locations.  Please don't be shy, I love to "talk shop"!

Thanks @Dmitriy Fomichenko !!  I have set up a few keyword searches such as multi-family property and brrrr but haven't read the Beginner's Guide just yet (but it is on my list).  This community is great for beginners and people like yourself and others that have welcomed me make it such.  Wishing great success for you on the west coast!!

Hello! @Ray Jones

Welcome to BP, and congratulations on making the decision to invest in your future via real estate.

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.
