  • The technology in home building is always important and it’s also always important to think about the realities of the house over time as it relates to technology because so much is behind the walls that you almost have to really think about getting it right the first time. 
  • I think it’s an exciting time to be in business, but it’s also a very challenging time. But the challenge makes you, it keeps you engaged, it keeps you healthy, it keeps you functioning, it keeps your brain thinking.
  • It’s getting more people to understand that trades are a great way to live a life, to have a career. It is, especially, if you’re dealing at this tier of people. You’ll never know what a recession is, you’ll never have a bad time because those people, even in bad times, they’ve always got money and now they think that they can get better deals on real estate. And they’ve got the liquidity to be able to pull that off.
