My first post - introduction

8 Replies

Hello everyone! 

I have been a BP member for several months now and thought it was time to introduce myself.  I live in Peoria, IL and work a full-time job in healthcare.  I have actually flipped four single family properties with my husband and father over the last 15 years.  I did not hesitate to jump into those deals but now that I have decided I want to do this as my career I am overwhelmed by fear - crazy, I know!  This summer I purchased a single family property with a co-worker and we are almost done with renovations (which were MUCH more extensive than we first thought).  We plan on renting this property.  

I have found the information on BP very helpful and look forward to advice from BP members!

Thanks, 

Jeanne 

*pronounced G-knee like "I dream of Jeanie", "Genie in a bottle", "Jeanie with the light brown hair" - all things I have heard my whole life :) 

Welcome to BP!  Hope to see you post some of your completed deals in the near future.

Welcome!

"What's your name?"

"Jean, but my friends call me Shauna."

"Okay Jean."

(Let's see who names the movie first.)

Thank you all for the warm welcome! Love Ferris Bueller :)   David - maybe now you understand my pain - my name is JeanNE not Jean - I have had my name mispronounced and misspelled my entire life which is why I always explain!
