Multi family 4 unit +1 garden. Purchased for $335,000, currently held for the past 2 years and refinanced at $320,000 appraised at $427,000. Cash flows $2800 a month after all expenses.

I am getting married in 4 weeks and just closed on a single family home for my family on Friday.

My fiance is closing on a 2 flat for $155k this week. My primary focus has been in the Beverly, Mt. Greenwood, Morgan Park area. 

I look forward to networking with everyone here. Anyone from Chicago who is interested in chatting anything real estate PM me or comment below.

@John Casmon Thanks for reaching out! Can you send more info? We will be on our honey moon, but if you have one in August, I will be there.

What areas do you invest in? What does your portfolio consist of? I look forward to speaking with you.

Hey @Kyle D Birch we meet the 3rd Monday of each month. We haven't posted the BP link yet, but you can find it on the events tab when it's posted.

For our portfolio, we have 700 units as general partners through real estate syndications. In short, we partner with other investors to pool our dollars and acquire larger properties together instead of each of us buying smaller properties individually. I will send you a PM.

 Are you in CPS?  I taught in CPS for six years while investing on the side.  Last summer, I made the switch to being a full time investor.  I'm always up for talking real estate.
