"Being comfortable with stress testing our portfolio. Be comfortable with the numbers, more or less. And if the numbers don't work, don't try to massage it; it just doesn't work." - Ron Christopher
"A lot of us, we try to focus so much on acquiring that next property. And we don't focus a lot on stabilization and what that would actually look like after we acquire." - Ron Christopher
"You probably shouldn't buy anything requiring a lot of renovation just to keep your costs low. And that way you'll be able to refi at a good value." - Ron Christopher
"Real estate investing is truly a long-term investment strategy. And it's not a kind of get-rich-quick tactic out there." - Mario Griffiths
"In terms of setting goals and thinking about what financial freedom looks like for you? What lifestyle do you truly want to live in 5, 10 years, and worrying less about how -- all the intricate details, and more on the who." - Mario Griffiths
"The importance of having a team and obviously due diligence are extremely important, especially when working with contractors for the first time. Because the things that you think might go wrong, likely will. And so you have to ensure that you have that kind of contingency funding in place and a contingency plan." - Mario Griffiths
