Beginner Investor from Bolingbrook, IL

5 Replies

Hello All!! Long time lurker here, finally making the jump. My name is April, I am 31 years old, and I am currently employed as a Nursing Practitioner in the Chicagoland area. My fiancé and I are building our portfolio and have been learning about real estate investment for some time now. Before learning about REI, we bought our first home in Bolingbrook, IL in 2014. We have now recently rehabbed it, and will be putting it on the market soon for rent. We also recently purchased and are currently rehabbing our first 3 flat multi family home that we purchased in Berwyn, IL. You guessed it, we are BRRRRing! We would love to link up with local real estate investors, agents, contractors, and anyone who has the real estate bug to bounce ideas off of and grow our network.
