New to BP, Lets Get Started!

2 Replies

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Donnie and I am a new to REI and focusing on multi family and potentially SFH. I am based out of Los Angeles, California (Huntington Beach to be exact). I decided, after seeing a few of my friends change there life in REI (cash flow is king!), to educate myself and soak up as much information as possible. I stumbled upon BP's podcast (then the forum) when searching for a way to learn on-the-go in the lovely LA traffic each and everyday, I was hooked when I heard more stories of building wealth the right way.

I currently own my house in Huntington, however searching for ways to take my first step in REI, whether that is in CA, where cap rates are low and prices high, or OOS, but very wary of D class neighborhoods.

Background out side of REI: I have a masters degree in sports marketing/business and currently work at Fox Sports as an Account Executive selling our TV and digital assets (commercials, in-game logos & reads, activations).

Short term goal: networking on BP including any meet-ups in SoCal and retaining as much information on the forum and podcast that I can, to put into action!


Hi @Donnie Wilson , welcome to BP!  Good to see someone from HB, I'm a former HB'er myself.  Do you know what specifically you want to do with real estate?  What are your goals, strengths, etc?  If you're open to networking I'm all up for networking next time I'm in HB :)
