Hello Everybody,

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 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.

Hello! @Brian Comiskey

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

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.
