CPA Newbie in Dallas TX Wanting to Invest in RE!

6 Replies

Hey everyone! My name is Timmy Paul and as the description says, I am a 26 year old CPA & CMA who is incredibly interested in real estate investing and achieving my very own financial freedom. The grueling hours of public accounting combined with a quick read through Rich Dad Poor Dad left me feeling like there is more out there. I can't help but think the impacts of COVID-19, while incredibly sad and unfortunate, must also result in great opportunities for investing, whether that is in the near future or coming later on. If anyone, especially in the Dallas Fort-Worth area, would like to connect, let me know! I would love to be a sponge and soak up any thoughts, tips, and information this community is willing to share! Thanks!

Welcome to biggerpockets. 
There was a recent Biggerpockets Podcast episode with a CPA located in Dallas who left the accounting industry to go into real estate full time.

I think it was episode 382(or maybe 381 or 383).

@Timmy Paul - welcome to BP! Like many others it seems Rich Dad Poor Dad spurred your interest in Real Estate Investing. Good think you stumbled across BiggerPockets too. The community, forums, podcasts, resources are invaluable!

As @Kenneth McKeown mentioned, I'm a CPA as well, and no I'm full time in real estate investing and mortgage brokerage. Took the leap, and never looked back! I grew up in DFW and have lived here most of my life.
