Quotable Quotes

  • You want to make sure that you are building those relationships for the long term and not just having a one-sided approach. So learning the language, understanding the industry, putting yourself out there, attending REIA meetings. I think it’s all extremely helpful especially in trying to set yourself up for a position down the road.
