Hi Everyone,

My name is Eric Ray and I am one of the owners of Equity Realty. We work with investors, entrepreneurs, and small business owners. My main role is to help our clients make wise decisions when buying investment properties in the Kansas City area. We are working to lead the charge locally on utilizing Self Directed IRA's to purchase real estate.

My goal on here is to learn and network. There is a wealth of knowledge on BP and I believe anyone can learn something valuable from others. Hopefully, I will be able to share some knowledge with you too!

I look forward to talking and meeting as many of you as possible.

Welcome Eric,

Yes learning everyday is critical to growth and success.

KC in the house! I grew up in KC and invest there...so I'm a pretty big fanboy :). Thanks for reaching out directly to me and welcome to BP, Eric.

Thanks Brandon and Joel!

Thank you Joshua. Love what you have done.

Welcome @Eric Ray ! Let us know how we can help you around here, and be sure to chime in when you can help others!

@Eric Ray , I'm going to hijack your introduction thread for a second. We were in KC two weekends ago, and we noticed the new improvements just off of 18th street. They looked fantastic from the outside! I just love it when an old city freshens up a bit.

Welcome to BP @Eric Ray . If you don't know it, someone here has done it...

Thanks @Brandon Turner and @Ben Leybovich . I am already seeing both ends of giving and receiving information on this site. @Jesse Holmes I haven't been to that part of town in such a long time. How often do you come out this way?

@Eric Ray That was our first visit, but it's certainly not a bad drive—roughly 3 hours. I grew up watching the Chiefs in Arkansas since we don't have teams of our own. I'll have to catch my first pro ball game next year, for sure.

Thanks @Will Barnard . @Jesse Holmes I need to make it to a game too this year. I am excited about the changes the team has made. Let me me when you plan on coming out this way we can meet up.

@Eric, this is a Great Site , just joined 2 weeks ago. I currently live in Prairie Village & work downtown as a full time agent. Just starting out on the Investing side....let's connect some time.

@Jesse...Yes the urban core has made A Lot of improvements over the last 5 years! Downtown Streetcar is being added as well http://dnakcmo.org/streetcar.html

From Kansas City here. Looking to buy my first property in the area soon and connect with other KC investors.

@Luke..What area are you looking in?

I'm in KC as well.

I'm pretty flexible on areas as of now. Trying to keep it within a thirty minute drive of my home in Leawood, KS. The Westport area seems attractive to me. I try and avoid East of Prospect or too far north.

Ok cool, I actually live right near you in Prairie Village.

I am very familiar with the Urban Core, but I don't really go east of Troost.
