“When somebody told me that funding is attracted to opportunity, not people, that really jumped out at me because I was the least attractive person from a financial standpoint.”
“For most people, real estate is the most accessible thing because if there’s two things everybody needs, it’s food to eat and a place to live.”
“I love passive income, I love cash flow and turnkey real estate, but I think for some, they buy it too early and they don’t have the cash to weather the storm of vacancies or a heater going out, or a tenant trashing the place.”
“I don’t know how people who do not have faith in God run a business because it is stressful.”
“Stay humble, stay in affordable housing, stay in the 5-point criteria that I gave you. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to buy skyscrapers and build giant properties but if you can’t do it with cash, don’t do it.”
“Stick to the fundamentals, stick to the basics, and if you will do that, you will have a very successful business.”
