Hey Bigger Pockets Community, my name is Brett Slusher. I just finished my football career at the University of Kentucky and I recently became a real estate agent in Northern Kentucky (with plans to get my Ohio license to practice in Cincinnati as well). I work for HUFF realty in Florence, KY. I currently specialize in residential real estate but I plan to transition to commercial real estate as time goes on.
I graduated with a degree in accounting but decided to pursue my passion for real estate straight out of college. Nothing against accountants, but it only took one summer internship for me to realize that wasn't for me. I have been licensed for about 3 months now and love it so far. I have no prior experience in real estate other than reading books on the subject. I have not yet purchased my own investment property, but I plan on buying a duplex/triplex to house hack once I have enough saved up for the down payment within the next 2 years. My long term goal is to accumulate enough passive income through real estate investing that will allow me to do real estate at my leisure. I joined bigger pockets because I became very interested in real estate after reading the books on house hacking and how to invest in real estate.
I look forward to connecting with everyone in the Bigger Pockets Community and learning from great investors all over the country!!
@Brett Slusher my daughter graduating this spring in interior design and business communications has similar plans . I would love to connect and talk to you. I have done long term, student, vacation rentals, flipping and private lending. I enjoy talking to young investors that are hustling out there. You are on the right track.
@Brett Slusher Welcome to BP and the forums. Seems you got a good plan just need to find the right property. Good luck with all your future REI ventures.

@Brett Slusher welcome to the BiggerPockets community. I'm a full time agent/investor here in Louisville. I'm also a HUGE University of Kentucky sports fan, and a former resident of Northern Kentucky in my early 20's. So we should have plenty to talk about if you want to meet up sometime for coffee, lunch, happy hour, you name it.
@Beau Hollis and I also host a monthly investor club/meetup from 6-8 pm on the first Monday of every month in Louisville, and would love to see you there. Great for networking and education. You can find out more and register for the next event here: https://www.meetup.com/Louisvi...

Welcome to the forums Brett! The northern KY market should be a great place for you to get started.
If you can pull off a house-hack near campus you’ll have great revenue for as long as you want it. The region south of Cincy just keeps growing as well.
Hit me up the next time you are in Louisville and let’s grab coffee or lunch.
Welcome aboard, Brett! This is a great place to learn and to meet people so take advantage of all the great resources.
