Tweetable Quotes:

“When I started looking at multifamily, all I heard was these perfect stories. And when I started doing all the work myself, then I started hitting walls.” - Mauricio Roque

“You see all these people closing deals and I'm not closing anything. But what happened was people actually started approaching a little more and they appreciated the fact that I was putting their interest… and that they saw or they felt that I was taking care of their hard earned money. I think they appreciated it and they stuck with me.” - Mauricio Roque
