New Investor in San Francisco Area

2 Replies

Hi all!  I'm Andrew Sanborn, an aspiring real estate investor living in San Francisco, CA.  I'm looking for connections for guidance and strategies for making my first investment.  As a Building Engineer, I know how to take care of buildings, and I want to learn how to put my skills to work on a property of my own to provide more value to my family and my community.

One of my first jobs when I was 16 was as a helper for a property management company in Hawaii.  Since then I've earned a degree in Political Economics from UC Berkeley, spent a couple years teaching English overseas, gone into the building maintenance trade for stability and personal growth, and recently got married!  I like taking care of buildings, and I'm looking for ways to make smarter choices with my free time and my hard-earned cash.

I look forward to working with all of you!

 Welcome to the site Andrew.

Welcome @Andrew Sanborn ! BP is absolutely the BEST place to learn the ropes and make awesome connections! Sounds like you're ahead of most in terms of skillset, but if you're finding SF to be a bit pricey (most people do lol) and are considering out of state investing, make sure you put the time in upfront to get your systems and TEAM in place! Team is always crucial, but when you're investing across the country, it really makes or breaks your investment. Start with the right people and the right investments will follow!

Good luck!
