Check out local REIA and ACRE meetings
join a club or meetup..... Tons of people wanting to sell you something.
I suggest going to ACRE - tonight (6/5) is their monthly meeting at the Double Tree hotel in Greentree. First time guests can attend for free!
Also, @Anthony Angotti hosts a monthly meet up in the South Hills that’s pretty great. I want to say it’s the 3rd or last Thursday of the month? Smaller group, eager investors and lots of networking opportunities.
Hope that helps!
Welcome to the RE investment world! I'm pretty green too, but learning is a great first step. Most people in this space are pretty friendly and eager to help newcomers. Meet-ups are a great place to network as already mentioned, and in this industry you can really just reach out to most people and offer to buy them a cup of coffee and pick their brain. Good luck!
