Notable Quotes

“I’d rather have a smaller piece of something, than 100% of nothing. And unless you’ve got really deep pockets or really low ambitions, you’re not going to be able to do without partners or without some sort of financial backer.” – Ferd Niemann

“We can do a better job for everybody, if we run it the way we know how to run it.” – Sam Hales

“That’s why I do believe this is a scale business. The scale helps in so many ways, not only economically at the GP side, we don’t put any GP expenses into the pond. It’s more about our ability to buy mobile homes when we see them.” – Rhett Trees
