Introduction - Malik Dodds

Hello Bigger Pockets Family,

My name is Malik Dodds, I am from Atlanta, GA, and I am new to real estate. Over the past couple of months I have been reading more and becoming more familiar with the real estate industry. Starting out, I am focusing on becoming a wholesaler and then I want to transition to flipping and gradually moving towards rental properties. I look forward to being involved in as many forums and discussions as possible to further educate myself about the industry. I am looking to make a career out of real estate as soon as possible as I have developed a passion for it now that I know the results it could help bring me and my family. Please feel free to engage.

Kind regards,


Welcome Malik! It sounds like you have things pretty well planned out. Good luck getting started in real estate investing!

Hello! @Malik Dodds

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

I have written a few blog posts that may help you get started here on BP, and with your investing. Please click on the links, give them a read, and share your thoughts in the comments.

First is a post that I feel will help not get overwhelmed with the amount of info that is here on BP:

The second is a post that will help get you focused with your real estate investing goals:

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.

I love answering questions if you have any! Good Luck :)
