  • “We, Indians, have a love for the real estate, and you’ll see a lot of Indians in the real estate business: single family, multi family, commercial, everything.”
  • “That laundromat was a piece of art: the best in Northeast Indiana, because it was all computerized, it was all digital, so it was unattended. I could do everything from my phone. I could run a laundromat from my phone.”
  • “You will be surprised: our bathroom door even opens with a card and we charge 5 cents.”
  • “I have structured it (managing my business) in such a way that I am free.”
  • “I had a lot of time to learn everything.”
  • “To learn more, when I started investing, I thought, ‘Okay, now I have got to diversify. I can’t keep investing with one person’. So I got to diversify, and I want to diversify with different markets as well.”
  • “I had time. With my use of my technology, I had plenty of time. Now, I was not managing the laundromat and the gas stations as well, and I was spending only 9 hours a week managing all those multi and single family. I was also working from home, so I had plenty of time.”
  • “There were a lot of other people like me who owned other businesses, gas stations, restaurants… they didn’t know that they could invest. And a lot of people still don’t know that they could invest in properties like this.”
  • “That’s what I started doing: I started educating my investors. So I built my website, I made a Facebook Group. And also, I started contacting people to tell them.”
  • “I have always, always invested my own money first. I’m always the first investor in my deal.”
  • “There is no hard and fast rule.”
  • “Multifamily is a networking business. Your network is your net worth.”
  • “Consistency is also the key in this business.”
  • “If you don’t talk to people, how would people know?”
  • “I have the passion of giving back to the community. And that started when I built a laundromat.”
  • “I thought, “I had been here about 12 years, in this neighborhood, and this neighborhood has made me rich. So they really need a laundromat, even if I don’t make money.’ I was feeling the pain that they were going through every day. They were coming to the gas station and asking for quarters, and cursing the owners that the machine took their quarters.”
  • “I don’t discriminate on color, sex, country, nationality, religion, or anything. We help whoever we can.”
