Joe Roberts is an active duty US Marine helicopter pilot who loves real estate. During a deployment to Afghanistan, Joe found BiggerPockets and spent 10 months reading everything he could about real estate investing. When he returned home, he bought his first fixer-upper investment property. Two years later Joe has gone from 2 to 23 doors spread across six different markets. Joe learned to invest from afar and continued to add to his portfolio even during subsequent overseas deployments. Joe lives with his wife, Colby, and their four children in North Carolina and plans on being a full-time real estate investor after his military career.
