“In life we all must decide whether to lead or follow. If you choose to be a leader, you must be prepared to dedicate yourself to the principles of creativity, hard work, persistence and honesty. And, if you practice these principles, success will surely follow…
This philosophy, when applied to real estate development, will produce a strong pride of ownership and major appreciation in real estate values.”
