My name is Brian Comiskey and I currently live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I currently am employed as a Franchise Business Consultant in the Twin Cities area. I have just recently gotten into the BiggerPockets Podcast and have been listening to it religiously over the past month or so. It really breaks investing down in a simple way that makes it something that the average person can do with some investment in gaining knowledge, thinking outside the box, and simply taking that first step in investing.
I am currently in the process of selling my first investment property with a couple of my business partners and I am looking to go all in on investing moving forward. I am looking to learn as much as I can from the BiggerPockets community. I am looking to connect with like-minded people that have similar goals and aspirations as I do to push and motivate me to achieve my goals.
Please feel free to reach out, if you are in the Twin Cities area, I would love to connect and network!

@Brian Comiskey I've found the best way to meet local investors is through the local meetups. There are many good ones in the Twin Cities.
Welcome to BiggerPockets Brian and good luck investing!
@Tim Swierczek thank you for the advice, I have started to look into the upcoming meetups nearby and will start attending some of these very soon.
@Andrew Syrios Thank you for the warm welcome!
@Brian Comiskey I tried to list the ones I like and a few others that I have heard good things about but the post was against the rules and taken down. Feel free to message me if you want my thoughts on it.
@Brian Comiskey - Welcome to BP! I'm fairly new to investing and working on selling an investment property then moving into real estate more heavily in the next few years!
Hello! @Brian Comiskey
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 have other blogs that may be helpful here on BP in my personal blog that you can check out. Good Luck :)
