Tweetable Quotes: 

"(At First) You’re not gonna learn everything, you’re not gonna have your perfect deal - buy something that’s good enough, and hold on for the long term and it will become a great deal over time” - Sarah Larbi


"People waiting for that perfect deal, when it comes, you don’t think that there are a ton of other investors that are much more experienced who are gonna jump on it right away anyways - you’re gonna be doing nothing for years.” - Sarah Larbi


"I don’t care about having 1,000 properties, I don’t... Just to say, what? I have 1,000? I’d rather just say I can do what I want, I’m young enough to enjoy it, and I have what I need..." - Sarah Larbi
