Hello BP, my name is Dylan and my wife and I are in the learning and prep process for real estate investing. We are located in Bakersfield, CA and have a goal to create passive income in addition to our full-time jobs. We are targeting our local market in the Central Valley as well as some other markets in the Southeast US. We currently own two rentals, one condo and one sfr, and they are both giving a small amount of cash flow. We have already learned so much about real estate and look forward to meeting and hopefully working with some of you in the future!

Welcome, Dylan.  If you would like to meet up with other local investors there is a meet up this Thursday at Rusty's Pizza on Ming and Ashe.  Check out the bigger pockets even section for more info.  It is free (but we ask that everyone buys food/drinks from Rusty's for giving us the venue for the evening) 

Hey Dylan! I'm a local real estate agent here in Bakersfield! I will also be attending Thursdays meeting it will be my first time as I have just started to get into rei but looking forward to meeting everyone!
