@Jasmine Brumfield  ditto! My biggest pet peeve is being at a conference and someone randomly coming up to me and handing me their biz card, asking for mine then leaving. HA. It makes no sense. Quality relationships over shotgun approach for sure. 

I'm new to investing and I would like to own a duplex buy the end of the year. I live in the Altoona , pa. 16601 area. Anyone out there I can chat with in this area would be great . I would greatly appreciate any help with this 

From anyone. Thank you


I'm new here and this is my first post. I'm a retired military guy who served in both US Marines and US Navy as an enlisted and later retired as Naval Supply Officer.  Recently had new addition to family, wasn't suppose to be able have kids however God knows best. Not sure what is the best or first step, but willing to learn and provide for family and support military population.

Welcome to the site. I recommend reading the first post in this thread and start your own thread in the new member introduction section. You will get the correct response in there and make the moderators happy.

Great post. I noticed this shortly after posting my introduction this morning..could have done the tell us a bit about yourself more, but I'm here to stay and will be working on that in my profile so not a lost cause. But I definitely like this post because it gives a great template to introduce yourself.

The “I’m here to stay” part of that post somehow was forgotten by this “Account Closed” individual ;)

Maybe that was just wishful thinking ...
