“In the multifamily space, we can scale a lot quicker, so we can do more passive investments, we can do bigger passive investments” – David Gwilt [0:06:40]

“That’s… [what] really got us into this space, is the ability to have an asset that throws off cash that we can live off of and enjoy while the asset is also increasing in value, so it gives us something of a legacy to leave to our family” – David Gwilt [0:09:52]

“The operators, for me, are key. A good operator can take an average deal and make it great. A bad operator can take an excellent deal and make it bad” – David Gwilt [0:16:04]
