Real Estate Newbie from Michigan

18 Replies

Hello, I'm so excited to have found BP through a podcast, that I immediately joined today. Resources are sometimes hard to find but somehow this morning while enjoying a cup of coffee, I was led here. Well, my name is Sherrie from Michigan and I'm a VERY newbie to real estate. I often find it difficult to get the information I need yet because of a BP podcast feat Ashley Hamilton, it has finally led me here. So thankful and looking forward to connecting and growing in this community. 

 I'm not shy of building relationships and making connections. I love human experiences and enjoy what makes us all unique. I love learning and soaking up new information. I'm not afraid of adventure and being put to the task. My hobbies include painting, reading and epoxy crafts on canvas and wood. I also enjoy nature, exploring, international travel and working in foreign exchange .

My goal in real estate is leave a legacy behind for my children's children and to be the change that I would like to see in my own community and around the world. So glad to be here:)

@Sherrie Berry welcome Sherrie! Ashley's episode was a great one.

What part of Michigan? I invest in Lansing and Grand Rapids.

Best of luck getting started!

Welcome @Sherrie Berry , I am new as well! Morning Coffee + learning sounds like a great start to the day. What method are you interested in to reach your goal, and are you looking at doing it locally there in Michigan?

Hi Sarah, thanks for your response. Im looking to buy and hold for now. Other than that I am open to learning creative ways to test the market. Education is key. Looking forward to get involved in webinars and taking a leap of faith!

Hi Dmitriy,

Thanks for the warm welcome!

 

Welcome @Sherrie Berry ! You are definitely in the right forum to learn more about real-estate (the ins and outs). I truly wish you the best on your journey and I can only hope you take full advantage of soaking up much as you can. What makes this forum so interesting is exactly what you mentioned above – the uniqueness. Please continue to read many post as you can, connect with those who you may feel can better serve you, and most importantly using this forum and the people as your greatest resource. 

Best of Luck! 

@Drew Brown hey Drew, Im pretty much investing in all of Lansing. Currently have about 7 units and looking to scale further in Lansing and metro.

Hi Sherrie! Welcome to BP. You are in the right place! I love your outlook and goals for building your legacy. You're going to crush it!

I have buy-and-hold experience in Metro-Detroit but I also work full-time in the mortgage industry. Please let me know if you have any questions, lender-related or otherwise. I would love to help in any way I can.

Also, I highly recommend @Connor Anderson if you need an agent on the west side. He does great work! 

Happy investing!
