Hello!!! Just thought I'd say hi and let you all know how informative your forums are. Hopefully I'll be the guru in 12-18 months and passing the info on to the next newbies!!

A little background.... I got my start the beginning of this year with some conversations with a very successful friend of mine who has since become my mentor. He advised me to get the ball rolling which meant to start reading everything within grasp and go take the NC Real Estate Provisional Broker's class. After three months in the class I passed it as well as the NC RE Commission's test and now hold my license as a licensee under my mentor.

His firm is more on the investment side of things which I'll being getting into eventually. I'd like to build up some capital by doing deals for some investors that he's got lined up and some that I'll find. Once that capital is sufficient, I'll be taking some of these deals for myself to rehab/sell or rehab/rent.

I look forward to learning from all the gurus here and thanks in advance!!
