I understand your situation. I am also new to real estate investing in the Medford Oregon area and hooking up with people who are experienced is very hard. No one want to talk to me about wholesaling deals.
Have you attended any REIA meetings? A great resource for information. Combining meetings with BP has provided me with lots of info nuggets! Good luckð
One of your first steps should be to join a REIA. No one will be willing to mentor you with them seeing that you are showing an effort to learn the business. Join a local REIA, and meet the people who are apart of the business. Then you can take things from there. Ask people questions, network, get phone numbers. If you have a Facebook page, you can join the group, Metro Detroit Real Estate Investors. Their monthly meeting is coming up soon, and you can join them and meet people there who could potentially become your mentor.
