"I don't see demand caving. I think demand stays elevated. I think supply is our issue, which also exacerbates the demand issues."

"If you own real estate in housing, you're probably in a really great spot if you're properly located."

"If you're passionate around the concept of owner. Invest in real estate, find the right ways to do it."

"When you say somebody can't live in this neighborhood because they don't want rentals, I actually think that's the reverse of progress."
