Hello! New investor in Memphis

12 Replies

I am so excited to be on this journey and waiting to close my first deal. I am looking forward to making my real estate business full-time and would like to include obtaining license to be an agent. I know it is not required for investing but I'm thinking that it would be valuable. Any insights from current members in this endeavor?

Also looking for ways to connect with local investors, contractors, agents and other like-minded individuals.

@Diogo Alves Thank you and I will definitely reach out. Right now I'm thinking about the Whitehaven (38116), Midtown (38111) or Frayser (38109) areas. I'm pending my first deal and willing to work any surrounding areas. If I may be able to help you in any way, feel free to reach out.
