Howdy Fort Worth Natives!
I am new to Fort Worth and am looking to get connected with realtors/real estate investors in the area. If you or anybody you know works/has interest in real estate, I would love to reach out and connect.
My background: I recently graduated from Texas A&M University with my degree in finance and real estate, I work in investment management in downtown, and I am looking to invest some capital in real estate to diversify out of my equity holdings.
Thanks and Gig'em,
Jacob D. Mallison
Hi @Jacob Blackett if you are looking to connect with local investors in Fort Worth, I would recommend two things. First, do a member search on this site and reach out to local investors. Secondly, go to as many local REIA meetings as you can to get familiar with who is involved and network with them.
Howdy! My husband is an Aggie as well and we've been house hacking our way to rentals for the last few years. We have a duplex fully rented out and a SFH that will be ready to go come spring.
I’m also a realtor on the side, mostly for our own houses but I’d be happy to help if you’re looking for a property in the next few months.

@Jacob Mallison Welcome to BP and to the Ft. Worth area!
You mentioned that you are looking to get started investing in real estate. What is your current strategy? Buy and hold, flip, BRRRR, SF, MF, etc. What is your timeline and investment goals? You probably have some knowledge of the local market already, but different areas can be better for certain strategies. Good luck!
I will second the suggestion to get involved in REIAs. The best way to find them is through meetup.com. I would do a little research as a large number of them are just venues for guru's and pitchmen to sell their class, software, or mentor-ship, all of which is probably unnecessary for you to get.
@Zane Zeigler is a great agent over on the west side of Fort Worth where there are still buy and hold deals to be had.
Wish you luck in your investing and I will see you at the meet ups.
Welcome to BP and Fort Worth! Glad to hear you are diversifying via real estate, always a good addition to any portfolio.
I am a local investor and Aggie. Class of 2000. There are a few groups that I recommend depending on what you are specifically looking for. From passive investors to get in and dirty folks. Feel free to reach out anytime.
