"It doesn't matter if you have the most amazing deal in the world. If you don't know anybody to give you money, you can't do anything with it." - Tyler Cauble

"A lot of the value comes from just driving the NOI up, whether that's through increasing your rental rates or decreasing your operating expenses, essentially arbitraging it on a cap rate." - Tyler Cauble

"I think that the biggest thing when it comes to any kind of real estate is you've just got to do the first one. I know that it's intimidating. I know it's scary. There's so much where you just make these excuses and guess what? You're never going to learn how to truly do it until you do that first project." - Tyler Cauble
