Hello everyone, my name is Nyia Xiong and I am completely new to this real estate investing. I'm from St. Paul, MN and currently a mechanical engineer for Ecolab.

I attended a wholesaling seminar but that is about all the exposure so far to any real estate investing. I started reading the book How to Invest in Real Estate which led me here to this forum. I would love to connect with as many people as possible to learn and grow. Possibly lend a hand when needed as well. I look forward to learning more as I kick off my real estate journey. 

Thank you all for reading.
