“Buy right. It’s much easier to manage a deal and asset when you bought it at a good basis.” — Ryan Christopher Nunes [04:14]

“Be involved with staff decisions. This is something that I learned on my time in Wall Street. For every time that I interviewed at different banks or interviewed somebody, there’s 10 to 20 interviews that you’d had to go through just to make sure that everyone had buy-in.” — Ryan Christopher Nunes [05:20]“Everything that happens at the property, we need to respond to. We need to figure out a solution. There’s always going to be issues and problems that come up, but the asset managers need to take responsibility and figure out how to solve these issues.” — Ryan Christopher Nunes [07:00]
