You need to find a financial advisor FAST. (not a lawyer and not a CPA unless they also have a securities license). Ask around your area for referrals, don’t just call blindly. Your girlfriend will have a nice start on a nest egg and you don’t want to blow it. Tell your advisor you want to invest a significant portion in real estate and let them advise you from there. Good luck.
