My name is Jonathan Hardy (Call me Jon). I'm from Chicago and I'm looking to get started in real estate investing within the next year. More specifically, I want to invest in multifamily rental properties. During the day, I'm a construction inspector for transportation infrastructure projects (roads and bridges) in the city and occasionally throughout the state. I'm super excited to get started and to connect with other real estate investors, agents, brokers, building inspectors and any other relevant professionals in the area or om BP. Looking forward to checking the forum and BP in the future.
@Jonathan Hardy - Welcome to BP and the re investing community! Funny you work for an infrastructure company because I did to and a lot of your construction skills will help in real estate.
Do you have an idea where you want to start investing? I started with a house hack in Bucktown. Not the best cash flow but great tenants and appreciate will payoff.
Also, saw you mentioned you are looking for some connects with brokers, pm’s, etc. pm me and I can send over some great referral.
Best of luck!

@Jonathan Klemm I'll definitely shoot you a pm. I'm looking to get started in the South Shore, Hyde Park, or Bronzeville neighborhood. I've lived in those areas so I figured they would be an ideal place to start.
@Jonathan Hardy Welcome to BP. How has your process been going? Any updates?
My wife and I are currently taking care of personal finances. (Budgeting, Saving, Eliminating Debt etc). We may be on the slow track, for now, but we're looking to invest in our 1st Multi-family at the end of 2020. I'll shoot you a pm!
