Just wanted to introduce myself, and didn't really know how so here you go. My name is Darrin Jackson I am the owner of a small video production company that specializes in realtor listings. Currently, I am living in New York but plan to be moving to El Paso, TX shortly. At this time my greatest focus is to gain as much education as possible so I can move forward with my first house hack within the next 12 months. Thank you all for having me and thanks in advance for all of those who will give me some information on the next steps for me. 

Welcome aboard. Best of luck on your move to TX. Start connecting with Realtors in the Texas area for you can begin looking at properties once you arrive. Look at the price range for multi families and make sure you have the capital to reach it plus reserves. Best of luck.
