Introduction to BiggerPockets

Hello BP community,

My name is Dae'Monte Nicholson, I am a new investor in the Atlanta/North GA market and recent graduate from the University of North Ga where I studied Business Marketing.

I am currently Co-Owner of Moonshiners Bar & Grill located in Braselton & Grayson Georgia. (Come Check us out)

Ive been on the forums for a few months now trying to soak up as much knowledge as I can but I'm quickly learning that I can't be a ghost forever and networking will be essential to my RE journey.

so here is a little about where I am so far - I currently have one partner, we have both spent countless hours acquiring knowledge and analyzing deals, We recently set a goal to close on at-least two properties within the next 2 months, for now we are focusing on SFH in the Atlanta area with <1000sqft.

current pending deal - Purchase Price - 125k -- Rehab - 80k -- ARV - 280-300k --- 3b 2ba - 1,060sqft

I look forward to connecting with everyone, if I can be of any help please let me know

Thank you BP community! - Dae'Monte Nicholson

Welcome to the site @Daemonte Nicholson ! Happy to have you.

You and your partner seem to be off on the right steps: learn as much as possible, and actually taking action when ready.  With goals like the ones you have, you sound set.  Also, that pending deal you have looks solid, so congratulations on that! Next time I'm in your area I'll have to stop by your bar.  Best of luck to you moving forward!

Hi Daemonte! I'm glad you decided to go outside your comfort zone and begin putting yourself out there! It's a big step in the right direction! It's just too easy to keep to ourselves. However, getting to know others and having conversations changes us (for better or worse depending on the people). I'm glad you have an ambitious goal of getting at least two properties within 2 months! Just make sure to be flexible about the strategies to get there. I look forward to seeing you around on the forums!
