Newbie Recent Grad in Philadelphia, PA

1 Reply

Hello everyone! My name is Rees Tillotson and I'm a recent grad who lives in the Philadelphia area and works for a large Investment Bank as a Risk Analyst. I first learned about Bigger Pockets a little over a year ago after finding the podcast on my commute to work, and have since listened to nearly every episode.  I have aspirations of one day making real estate my full time career, in whatever capacity that may be.  I'd like to start by house hacking in the greater Philadelphia area and go from there.  

When I'm not working I like to cook, watch my favorite soccer team - Liverpool - play, and try out new coffee shops in the area.  I'd love to meet both new and experienced real estate investors/professionals!

Thank you! -Rees

Hi Rees, welcome to Bigger Pockets. There is a lot of great information as well as connections here. I moved back to Philly in 2012 and bought a triplex to house hack. It started my real estate journey and was one of the best decisions that I ever made. I lived for free and, when I moved out, the triplex became a cash flow machine. 

What neighborhoods are you looking at? 

Best of luck!
