One of my favorite parts about real estate investing is the outstanding community. In most cases there is little room for secrecy or a 'holier than thou' attitude, but rather there's an abundance of just giving to others. Some investors share their stories and secrets of success, others have a passion for connecting people with someone who can help them move forward, and some do a little bit of everything.
I've been blessed to meet some of these people and share my story and lessons as a guest on podcasts, on a virtual real estate meetup, and by writing a few articles for the BiggerPockets blog. I encourage you to check out all of these resources, and I've included some of the ones I've been involved in below!
