So what did we have this week?
I told you about a crisis that led to growth, about love at first sight in a city that has become a home. On setting up two successful businesses and an experience of a real estate school on steroids.
The world stands for three things: the Torah, labor and the giving of graces.
And in our world, on the Torah - the theory is important, the legal and financial umbrella is important, the deep understanding of the market you work in, and also the understanding that we have no control over everything but we can make the most of it. That we begin to analyze assets we must analyze on the most conservative side that Max is pleasantly surprised. Renovation assessments, financing assessments, a market that is changing for us at the moment, the only control we have is to prepare for the worst situation, if the property works even in a bad calculation it will surely work in the excellent scenario.
About work - there is no substitute for field work, Sisyphean hard work, everyday, it is impossible to manage the world from the computer. I dedicate at least two days a week to working in the field with my contractors, along with the home designer and of course with the clients. Get up early in the morning, manage a routine and stability, recruit a team that can complete you, and recognize your strengths and weaknesses. Teamwork is critical. I run my companies like I ran a tech company, there are quarterly and annual goals, there are neat protocols for each step in the process. Minimum surprises Max results. It took me a year and a half but my staff today works like a well-oiled machine, from a counseling session to placing tenants, there is an orderly organization.
On charitable giving - I work quite a bit with the Israeli community of Austin, and you have no idea what a great community there is here. I won! I really got to know good people. For Israelis who live considerably, the community is the family. And this family we created here in Austin is fine. It is important to me to contribute to the community, help its institutions and buy local produce from our community entrepreneurs. About a week ago I officially joined as a consul of the organization
In the city and I have many programs that will help the community here grow and develop.
And perhaps most importantly, each market has its problems, in our market there is no cash flow so need to be creative. There are a lot of mantras of think outside the box. I hate mantras. So take the box and break it, there is no box anymore, there is nothing that can limit you from being who you really want to be.
I accompany investors, I have a lot of responsibility on my shoulders and I take this responsibility very seriously, these are savings that people have worked hard all their lives to accumulate, and they trust me to make the right choices along with them. This responsibility anchors me to the ground, the good of the customers before my eyes always. I thank my clients for the trust, nothing is taken for granted.
