Hi ya'll! I'm Victoria. Originally from Houston, Tx but currently residing in Illinois due to husband being stationed here (Navy). After our 3 years here we plan on moving back to Houston but real estate investing is all I think about and can't wait till then to begin. I came across real estate after continuously seeing a real estate business in my local Houston neighborhood purchasing old, dingy homes and flipping them into something beautiful. I was amazed and wanted nothing but to do exactly what they did. I knew nothing about the basics of real estate and after confiding in my dad that this is what I wanted to do he pointed me to Bigger Pockets, which I then learned by all the educational tools that not only can I do what I know I would love and enjoy doing but that it will give me a life I'd want for myself and my family that no other job could do for me. That is to create passive income, be my own boss, not have my son spend more time at daycare then at home because I have to work, retire early, travel and to overall obtain financial freedom! Life doesn't get better by chance it gets better by change. So here I am educating myself towards acting on that change.
