The wheels of justice - they're square wheels
All of America right now is having a love affair with real estate.
A complainer is like a Death Eater because there's a suction of negative energy. You can catch a great attitude from great people.
I became a larger than life figure for one reason only. When you're quoted in the 'Wall Street Journal,' the 'New York Times,' constantly as the expert in the business people assume you're a lot bigger than you are. And then I had to run like hell to catch up with my own image.
I built the business exactly the way my mother built and ran her family. I wanted a replication of the big, happy family I grew up in. I wanted happy people having fun.
I got along with people very well at every job I had, people liked me and I liked them and I loved being on my feet.
If you get labeled a winner, people come along for the ride. Might as well enjoy it and they should too.
People stayed with me and worked extra hard for me because I could see the potential in them - I'm not so sure they could see the potential in me.
The best time to expand is when people are asleep at the wheel.
What people ask for has nothing to do with the value of a property. You might see a listing for 00,000 and think you should make a 50,000 bid. But hyper-focus on what the house is worth. You should know what the house is worth by looking at comparable properties. Base your bid on that.
I gave up years ago on the concept that you could actually have balance in your life, I think it's a phantom chase.
I've been in real estate for my whole life, I've been trying to sharpshoot the market with my investments, I'm never right. All you need to do is get near the bottom. That's good enough.
My greatest strength as a child, I realize now, was my imagination. While every other kid was reading and writing, I had seven whole hours a day to practice my imagination. When do you get that space in your life, ever?
My husband had a very strong identity and was successful in his life. Thank God for that. There's no way I can control him. I wouldn't stay married to him if I felt I could. I can readily take my business personality into the home. But he forces me to be a partner rather than the boss.
The best mistake I ever made was believing that I was stupid. It was a childhood thing, but it played out big-time as an adult. It scorned me the rest of my life - in a good way.
