“No matter what happens in the worst of times and the best of times, if a deal's a deal, they're going to go after it. Of course, you got to be pickier at certain times in the market like this.” - Jason Lee

“It’s tough being an investor right now is a great time to be an investor because right now, more opportunities, and less competition. And a lot of people are not sharpening their pencils. But as a broker right now, there's less volume. So, it's a lot tougher to get deals.” - Jason Lee
