“Part of my preference for selling versus holding on was where I was in my station in life. I wanted money in my pocket. And that was the quickest way to put more money in my pocket.” – Glenn Gonzales
“I learned a very valuable lesson of how important it is to have a good maintenance guy and a good manager. Because you can’t have a successful apartment complex without both of those people being on the same team and working together.” – Glenn Gonzales
“For 25 years, I navigated through property management with several different management companies. And along the way, I was just getting more and more and more experience for sure, what to do and what not to do.” – Glenn Gonzales
“Getting 4,500 units, it’s not that simple, but yes, relationships and being in the right place and the track record to experience the 25 years in the trenches, so to speak, it gave me the experience because I could tell what was a good deal from what was a bad deal.” – Glenn Gonzales
