Tweetable Quotes:

“I'm trying to understand how it's possible that the highest correlation to failure is bad property management.”  – Andrew Rosenberg


“I'm not saying don't invest in syndications, but I do think operators tend to ignore the downside risks beyond just what a fiduciary responsibility is. You do have an ethical obligation to really explain to people what they're getting into, and I don't think a lot of first-time investors truly understand what they're getting into.” – Andrew Rosenberg
