Tweetable Quotes:

“You learn a ton of stuff as you grow. Right? I think we all obviously do. And there's so many things you'll learn. ” - Axel Ragnarsson

“Real estate's a game where we all get into it for cash flow and passive income. And I think that's what entices a lot of people to or brings a lot of people to real estate, but you really make money by growing the equity and growing the value of a property or, you know, buying something below market taking your cash out buying something else.” - Axel Ragnarsson

“I think that we're at this point in the business where good deals, they're not just growing on trees, right? It's not like it's easy to go out there and, and get a good deal. So you really got to maximize what you have, like in front of you.” - Axel Ragnarsson
