Great quotes from the episode include:
“Hiring a Virtual Assistant has incredibly changed the dynamic of how I spend my time.”
“You know that you're worth good money every hour for the things that you do, and if you have someone else you can help bring up along the way by paying them a salary and can get more stuff out of your hands into there’s, it’s perfect.”
“If you're talking in the syndication game, the less you leverage the lower your IRR.”
“I would say you'd want to have everybody to be qualified with some numbers, but you definitely want someone that's more on the expert doing the underwriting and doing some of the math.”
“The main 3 things that are holding you back in real estate are no time, no money, or no experience.”
“When you first have that syndication, everything looks rosy on the pitch deck. Once things just start rolling, there are always these problems that show up that you would never expect, and we have to make the tough decisions to help everybody make money.”
“If you don't lose in real estate once in a while then you're not pushing yourself hard enough.”
“Each of those mistakes hardens you, motivates you and it makes you a better realtor and real estate person.”
