Making My First Few Leaps from Sunny San Diego

4 Replies

Hey BP people,

My name is Erwin, born and raised in Glendale, California. I have my beautiful wife and soon to be daughter at the beginning of next year. I was recently stationed in Japan while active duty and throughout my last deployment I committed myself to listening and reading as much as I can on self development, long distance real estate, healthy marriage, and overall life success achievement. Now that I am in San Diego, the goal is to achieve with my wife financial independence so that we could chase more.

As far as occupation, I work mainly in public affairs while also being savvy in photography and digital design. I’m starting a new career path in financial services to become a financial counselor.

So far my family is looking at options of either purchasing out of state WA deals, buying in-state Orange County flips, or expensive duplexes right here in San Diego.

I am excited to see who I meet with and who I will be working with.


Hey Erwin! I've personally used the VA loan to fund two deals, including a duplex in North Park. If you ever want to chat about some specifics, feel free to send me a message!
