“I just need to know what you plan to sell it for.  That way I know what your finish is and what we are trying to accomplish with this project.”


“It’s important to have a contactor that understands your vision, because once they have what you are going for they can try and stay within that budget.  And to you as the investor that budget is what is most important to you.”


“Finding a good contractor will take time, and it may stem from finding a good contractor that you mold into the contractor you want them to be.”


“There are not a lot of contractors that understand the flipping world.  They are great at building things but they do not understand where investors are coming from.”


“It’s important that your name is synonymous with integrity.”
