Newbie from Irvine, CA

I'm originally from Cancun, Mexico but have been living in Orange County, CA for ten years. I graduated college in 2017 and started a youth basketball program. My business is growing and currently giving me the flexibility to put a lot of time towards my REI goals. Some of these include doing my first deal this year not matter what (local flip, and out of state rentals), establishing a network of RE professionals, and learning as much as I can.

Wherever you're from I would love to connect. Despite the fact that I'm a newbie, I'm hungry, I have time, I learn quick, and work really hard.

Hope to hear from you all soon!

Hey @Carlos Jimenez Welcome to BP!

Awesome intro, I'd love to hear more about the basketball program. Youth sports is a passion of mine as well so I commend you on raising the next generation of leaders!

Most of my work in NY is with new investors so I'd love to give you some info that has helped my clients here on the East coast.

I'll shoot you a colleague request so we can stay connected.

Best of luck to you moving forward!
