My name is Nicholas Fonte, and I am a real estate rookie. I currently live in Minnesota and I am interested in investing in both the Twin Cities metro area and the Commonwealth of Virginia.

If you need labor that will cost only a few investing tips, let me know. I have been blessed with a strong work ethic, gritty perseverance, and above-average intelligence. I get things done.

Real Estate Background

I have spent the past four months learning non-stop about real estate investing after stumbling upon Bigger Pockets and the Financial Independence community. I have been captivated ever since with real estate podcasts, books, and posts.


  • Give my time and hard work to experienced investors who are busy and can use a hand
  • Begin my real estate investing through a house hack with my wife and children
  • Build a portfolio using the BRRRR method

I look forward to connecting with you and eventually becoming a contributing member of the Bigger Pockets community. So the journey begins...


Hi @Nicholas Fonte I have found a great way to get involved is to meet people at local networking events.  BP does not allow them to be posted here but if you PM I will send you a list of the ones I think are most valuable.  I go to about 4 regularly but there are 7 or more that I can send you that should be worth attending.

Welcome, Nicolas!!    Yes! I agree with Tim, networking is important. I have found a great way to get involved is to meet people at local networking events. I joined the Chamber of Commerce and MBAKS here to know local professionals and people.
