  • “You only have the frame of reference from your personal experiences.”
  • Being a founder is a totally different mindset than being an investor. A successful exit and relaxing is not the final destination for founders that have been hardwired to love building things.
  • Real estate brokers will always develop stereotypes. If you call them from certain area codes, they will assume you are an unsophisticated buyer with money.
  • Real estate is one of the most antiquated industries in the world. There is a huge opportunity for new ways to solve existing problems.
