Virtual Intro: Newbie from Maryland

3 Replies

Hello BP community!

My name is Jason Padgett and I'm from the southern Md area but have lived, worked, and currently commute all over the VA/DC/MD/Baltimore area. I'm brand new to real estate and looking for partners I can add real value to. While I don't have any real estate experience, I do have extensive experience developing and leading all types of diverse teams, setting long-term goals and building systems and processes to achieve them. I'm a big picture guy; and my strengths are in execution towards an end state, not necessarily in the details that go into acquisition or sales (that much I've learned so far).

Since being exposed to real estate about two months ago (stumbled across a book) I’ve been pouring over everything I can get my hands on to shorten my learning curve and ultimately decide what it is I’m interested in. Currently, I’m drawn to the possibilities with commercial real estate but have yet to pursue anything or start building my network. I’m hoping this post starts me down that path!

I’m currently a full-time working professional I’m and always seeking ways to put my money to work. So glad I finally joined this community and looking forward to what the future holds!
