Hello BiggerPockets. My name is Jorge Patino and I am from Rancho Cucamonga, California. I have experience as a landlord/property manager with a triplex in East Los Angeles. I am very interested in real estate investing, and am here to learn as much as I can while expanding my portfolio.

My goal is to buy and hold single family homes in parts on nation with a better return. My plan is to keep my current job while investing on the side until it becomes more sustainable. I feel that REI is the best way to attain financial freedom and I look forward to meeting people with a similar mindset.

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.
