“If you want to take this seriously and compete with the people that are already established, one of the easiest ways to remain more competitive… is being responsive and really jumping on when new opportunities come up and not procrastinating.” — Michael DeHaan [0:13:49]

“If you’re going to spend the money, have the systems in place to follow up and to be jumping on things immediately.” — Michael DeHaan [0:15:53]

“If you’re working in the real estate industry, you don’t work on a clock. You work when you’re customer, when your clients, when your sellers, when your buyers are working… If you can’t you’re going to miss quite a few opportunities.” — Dan Austin [0:16:59]
