Hello BiggerPockets fam! 

My name is Niraj and I recently got my Real Estate license in NJ. I signed with Berkshire Hathaway in Manalapan, NJ around early March 2021. I've listened to BiggerPockets podcasts for a long-time but finally decided to create an account to make a successful career in real estate as both an agent and an investor. 

A little about me:

  • Currently a mechanical engineer looking to transition to real estate full-time
  • Thoroughly enjoying learning about real estate (i.e. market trends, hot-zones, fixer-uppers, investments)
  • Love traveling and cars

My personal goals:

  • Connect with agents/investors that are willing to share their experience in the field (i.e. any tips are appreciated)
  • Build a real estate team and target investment opportunities and BRRRRs
  • Buy my first investment property this year!

I look forward to meeting everyone! I'd love to connect on other social media as well to learn and grow from each other. A newbie here so still figuring out how to use this platform efficiently.

Best, 

Niraj Maniar

Congrats on getting started! Are you looking to invest in the market you live in or out of state?  Definitely check out the local forums for the areas you're looking to invest so you can dive a little deeper into specifics of that area.  

Hi Niraj,

My name is Pete Vander Valk, nice to meet you. My wife and I own a 2-family house in Bloomfield, and are looking to eventually buy some more properties in the future. I'm actually getting into the real estate field right now as well, just waiting for my MLO license to be approved and then I will be working as a loan officer for Aceland Mortgage. I would love to connect if you're interested and talk investing/growing our RE businesses.


Best regards,
Pete
