Newbie from south Tx

5 Replies

Hello Bigger Pockets community! Newbie hailing from south TX, in the corpus Christi region. Fairly new to the industry as an investor looking using the wholesale strategy, as well as working towards obtaining a home inspectors license. I know the south TX area fairly well as well as the Austin area. Looking to network with enthusiastic individuals inside and outside of my area.

Looking forward to networking and building with you all!!! 

Thank you,


Welcome, Sandy! Love the idea of pursuing your home inspectors license - that will give you a unique perspective on your REI career.

I'm not super familiar with the south TX area, but it sounds like you've given a lot of thought to your strategy and the neighborhoods where you want to execute. I recommend setting up keyword alerts for your area so you can start engaging with conversations in the forum that center on those neighborhoods - that can be a great way to connect with like minded folks pretty quickly.

Also, f you haven't subscribed to the Bigger Pockets podcast yet, I can't recommend it highly enough. I lurked in the forums and listened to the podcast for several years before making the leap to buying my first property. The education I received through the podcast was invaluable in giving me the knowledge and confidence to do the first deal. Eight properties later and no looking back now!

Best of luck to you and keep all of us posted on your journey!
