“It has been, I guess, margin compression issue in many markets. It has happened and is happening today, all over the country.”

“To me, it starts with the construction. Every deal we’ve ever done that had any construction, our success and/or failure, came from the construction side of the deal, always.”

“It’s the key to success. You’re measuring and monitoring progress daily.”

“When it comes to contractors, I have always found that trying to find the cheapest guys, you always, always end up spending more money in the end.”
