Greetings BP! My name is Jed Hefner and I am so grateful to my great family friend Eric W. for introducing me BP. I'm loving the excitement of finding the community and the amazing education that I have begun to devour over the last couple of weeks.
I grew up in Arkansas with a single mother and lived my formative years in a house built by Habitat for Humanity...so while my real estate buying experience is limited to my wife and I having purchased our first home in 2015, I know first hand the power of a stable home to change lives. I look forward to using real estate to achieve financial independence and provide a difference legacy for my 3 kids.
I have already begun networking with a few local professionals and looking to add value to deals through my background as an IT architect & project manager. Looking to continue my education phase, topping off my bankroll, and looking to get into my first deal around the end of 2019.
@Jed Hefner welcome Jed! Good luck to you on this journey! BP has some great resources for getting started.
It's awesome that you want to set out to change the legacy for your kids!
Welcome to the REI community @Jed Hefner ! I'm an active investor in San Antonio and just started my journey earlier this year. Feel free to reach out if you need anything or have any questions. Good luck!
@Zachary Hendricks Thanks! Spent a couple years in your stomping grounds at the college of the same name. Always good to hear from back home :)
@Jason Lee Thanks for the mention. I am visiting some friends in Chicago until after the 4th, but I will reach out as soon as I am back in town. Watch your PMs for contact info.
@Jed Hefner welcome to BP! Your story is great and this is the kind of stuff that gets me excited!
I remember growing up thinking that if someday I could somehow buy a 200k house I would have made it. Now a few years later I bought and sold a house that wasn't an investment that I accidentally made 10k on....I have a single family house that is now an airbnb with a lot equity, i have another 2 units that I own with partners, and i'm trying to get 2-3 more houses this year.
Real estate is cool stuff and I feel like i'm just get started but am excited to see where it will take me and it's always awesome when I get to help others on their journey there as well!
I’m interested to know your strategy for getting your first deal?
