Hello,

I have been in retail management for 15 years and am now looking to branch out into the real estate investing world. I want find rental properties to start the BRRRR method. I understand that real estate investing is a team sport, so I would also like to network with other investors in the Wichita area. I am a sponge and firmly believe that emulating successful people is better than re-inventing the wheel.

  My plan is to seek out properties by getting incoming leads from ads, driving for dollars, and networking. 

  I am hoping that my experience in retail and building a business for a company, will translate into me building something for myself and my family.  Drop me a line, I would be happy to email, text, meet up for coffee, or send messages with a carrier pigeon. 

Thanks, Andy

@Andy Lucero welcome to Bigger Pockets, it’s a great community with tons of value. There are several meetups around town, I run an investor lunch meetup once a month at Old Chicago downtown. Next one is next Wednesday at noon. Good luck.

@Andy Lucero Welcome to BiggerPockets! Truly nice to meet you. Good luck going forward! 😁

You are already going to be an asset with your property management experience. Use that when networking as a plus you bring to the table.

Networking and BRRRR are go starting places!!😺

@Jason Lavender @Shane H. @Jacob Henderson @Jared Viernes @Andy Lucero  The REIC meets at the Wichita Boathouse 5:30pm on the second Tuesday of the month. It’s free; there is free food and drinks (beer and wine even). Each meeting is a new speaker. Mark your calendars. I believe I am to be announced the February speaker. I’ll be speaking about navigating the Section 8 bureaucracy and all things passive income. It will be sweet, you should all come. Please tag others.I want a packed room!
