I am a newbie. I have wanted to own property since I was a little kid. I currently work in financial services. I read a lot about real estate and finance to try and educate myself. I am currently investing in the Charlotte market. If you are looking to network please drop me a line. If you are having trouble with financing let me know. I do NOT finance, however after having called about 50 different lenders I've learned a few things I could probably pass on.
