Introduce your self to tell the group! (Tell the group what you currently do, what you have done and what you hope to do)

Neil is a retired (2007) mechanical engineer. and I am a former foreign language teacher and completed 18 years on the Chesterfield County School Board in 2012. We hope to continue to travel and have a secure retirement and grow a business to pass on to our grandchildren.

What are your goals in Real Estate Investing? ( Do you want to Buy and Hold, Wholetail / Retail, or Wholesale?)

We would like buy and hold, flip and perhaps wholesale.

What Real Estate Investing experience and skills do you bring to the group? ( If None, then please describe what knowledge you hope to gain.)

We have had a rental house for the past 11 years. Neil is an all around handy man and has successfully done many home projects. We have acquired 3 more rental properties this year.

If you are new to Real Estate or a Veteran, What would you say is your major Real Estate Accomplishment and Failure? (Example just got started, Studied with Guru's or Did nothing with coaching(Please Describe) from a mentor).

Our rentals have gone fairly well and we have learned to screen carefully and get new tenants quickly. We took the 3 day seminar (June 29, 2013) with Rich Dad and signed up for their software package and a couple of classes.

What do you hope you accomplish by being a member of this Real Estate Investor Association? (Be Specific, because this group loves to make goals come true)

We hope to forge good relationships with like minded people; to learn and share what we know and what we learn with others. We would like to continue to flip, buy and hold and maybe whole. We would like to learn more about financing methods for creating passive income.


Neil and Dianne Pettitt. We have 4 single family rental houses in Midlothian and are looking to flip or try notes. Our main interest for flips is in single family 4/2.5 in the Midlothian/Bon Air area of Chesterfield County.
