What was the best business advice you ever received?

Where there is change, there is opportunity.

If you could choose another profession, what would it be?

Residential construction... a general contractor. My father did that for 35 years and that's how I got my interest in real estate. I used to work for my father and saw the construction of a house from start to finish.

What's the biggest risk you have taken in your career?

Buying an investment property when I was 18. Then I bought two more. However, I wasn't able to foresee the downturn but I survived and never foreclosed on anything and finally I am making positive money on it. Looking back that was risky.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?

Scotland, that's where my father's side of the family is from, then on to England where my mother's side of the family is from.
