Getting Started in Chicago

5 Replies

Hi BiggerPockets, My name is Matt and I'm located in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. I am looking to start the journey into real estate investing. Recently got my real estate license, but looking for recommended REI groups in Northwest Chicagoland area to connect with! Thanks in advance!

Welcome, Matthew! Hope you find a great community out there in your area! 

Hi Matt!

My name is Fred and I'm also working on getting started.  I'm located in Glenview and have a rental in the city.  I've kept my rental purely as an investment, but have recently become more interested in focusing on generating better cash flow by finding and reinvesting in other properties.  I don't have as much experience as I'd like, so I recently made my first post here and received a suggestion to join a group to network with other investors in the area.

I sent you a connection request, please keep in touch and hopefully we can work together in the future!
