BiggerPockets Celebrates 10 Years as the Leading Real Estate Investing Network

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - October 23, 2014) - Yesterday, BiggerPockets, the leading online resource for real estate networking and education, celebrated its 10 year anniversary.

Ten years ago, BiggerPockets founder Joshua Dorkin, an entrepreneur, real estate investor and one-time real estate agent, launched the site after discovering a lack of comprehensive real estate education websites. He set out to create a platform that could serve as a one-stop resource for both novice and experienced investors to learn, connect and share their experiences as part of a community without being upsold to some "late night TV expensive course."

"I launched BiggerPockets with the simple motivation of helping investors who found themselves where I once was: driven, ambitious and full of vision -- but unsure where to turn for the knowledge and skills necessary to truly break into the real estate industry," said Dorkin regarding the milestone. "At that time I could not have fathomed the journey BiggerPockets has taken me on, and I owe an inordinate amount of that success to our active, knowledgeable and generous members."

Today, Dorkin's member-focused vision has helped distinguish the site as the leading place for gimmick-free real estate content and networking channels. With over 215,000 members, tens of millions of visitors, nearly 3,000,000 podcast downloads, over 1,000,000 forum posts, and countless success stories from members whose lives have been changed, BiggerPockets seeks to empower investors with a wealth of knowledge and numerous interactive resources.

Its mission remains to help educate people in all aspects of real estate and real estate investing and to provide tools, data and resources to enhance real estate knowledge, networking, dealmaking, marketing and other day to day real estate activities.

Dorkin said, "While we're thrilled to celebrate this important milestone, the journey doesn't stop here; I look forward to further growing BiggerPockets and serving its members in new, innovative ways over the next 10 years with many of the same motivations that spurred its founding."
