It’s rumored that doing well in real estate is to be able to close a deal. I did not find that to be the case for myself, I was probably the worst closer out there and I didn’t find that was true of my top super stars either.

I come from a council estate in Tower Hamlets, and by no means am I the only person who has done well – one of my friends is head of year in a great school in Twickenham. Another is a writer; another is an artist, a musician.
Eddie Marsan
I own a mortgage company and a real estate company funded by the music. Florida is a kinda gold mine.

You do a deal – business deal, real estate deal, stock deal – protect yourself at all times. I got that from boxing. That’s from A to Z: that covers everything in life.

Seth Shostak
I’m from Pemberton, Wigan, and was born into a poor family. I grew up on a council estate. My dad was at first in the Army and then in the coal mines. My mother had four children by the time she was 23 so money was always tight.

Meghan Daum
We lived in this ghetto during the worst excesses of the Seventies. When the tartan gangs came to wreck our estate, we had to defend it. We were barricaded in with diggers and earth-movers. It wasn’t a case of joining the Republican cause, or the IRA – we were fighting for our very existence.
Adrian Dunbar

Wunmi Mosaku

Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
Real estate was one of the first things I was doing. I kinda like mistakenly fell into that. I bought a house early in my career, and in my head, it was like, if everything goes wrong, I own this one house, you know… As I started doing concerts and more concerts, I started buying more houses.
Yo Gotti
The gallery in which the reporters sit has become a fourth estate of the realm.

My other brother, the Lord Lucas, who was heir to my fa

My other brother, the Lord Lucas, who was heir to my father’s estate, and as it were the father to take care of us all, is not less valiant than they were, although his skill in the discipline of war was not so much, not being bred therein.
Margaret Cavendish
My father’s not the type of person that teaches you by saying, ‘Come here, son. I’m going to tell you about real estate.’ You learn by watching it. If you don’t pick it up, it’s your problem.
Donald Trump, Jr.
When I was small, I was the same as everyone else. I used to play in a small council estate nearby. But it’s really my family who taught me. I started watching my dad play from the age of two. I wanted to be like him.
Eden Hazard
A real estate closer. Oh, what’s that? I’m a real estate opener. What is a real estate closer? You mean at the end where you’ve got to sign all those papers?
Louie Anderson
Goldie has been around a lot longer than his gold teeth, than the golden locks. Not many people know me. He was a Rastafarian… They know Goldie the player, like my boys in Miami, or Goldie the graffiti writer, or Goldie the guy on the estate with the gold teeth, but nobody really knows that little boy from school, you know?

Jonjo Shelvey
My godfather was a man named Justin Dart. Some of you may remember Justin Dart. My younger son’s name is Justin, named after Justin Dart. I was executor of his estate, and he was my godfather. I first really got time to spend with Ronald Reagan with Justin Dart personally, one-on-one.

Some people write me off as a bit of a hick from an Essex council estate. I realize that. But I can read.

There’s nothing fun about stuff like estate planning, getting mammograms, or talking to a guy about long term disability insurance, but do it anyway. Trust me, the stress of not having done the above is prematurely aging.
Jen Lancaster

Donald Trump
I believe that nothing enjoys a higher estate in our society than the right given by the First and Fourteenth Amendments freely to practice and proclaim one’s religious convictions.

I always felt very secure and very safe with real estat

I always felt very secure and very safe with real estate. Real estate always appreciates.
Ivana Trump
And personally, one of the secrets I guess you can say with success on HGTV, for not only myself and a lot of other individuals who have shows, is that we truly do love what we do. We’re passionate about real estate. We love design. We love seeing transformations. We love working with our hands.
Scott McGillivray
If no estate tax is imposed, capital gains taxes can be avoided indefinitely.

Michel de Montaigne
I think that every homeowner has a fascination with real estate. You can’t deny that it’s such a huge player in our finances. It’s probably the most expensive thing you’ll ever purchase, so you’re forced to pay attention.
Scott McGillivray
When I was young, we always went to our posh cousins at Christmas. My dad made sure we had new shoes and clean clothes – he was really proud – and that’s why I felt different from everyone living around me. We had the first television on the estate, the first fridge.

Kyle Walker
Patriotism is often an arbitrary veneration of real estate above principles.
George Jean Nathan

Dave McClure
My father was a successful real estate developer, and he was a very tough man but a good man. My father would always praise me. He always thought I was the smartest person.

I’ve always been into music. I used to DJ. I used to mix reggae and that. I used to be into reggae hard. Well first it was rap, then reggae, then rap again, then rap and reggae. But I was always DJing out my window for the whole estate. Everyone used to sit outside and all and listen. And I used to be running rhythms in that.
When I talk about my artist parents, people imagine a bohemian environment and think, ‘Aha, so that’s where he gets it from!’ But we were as white, straight, and middle-class as the next family on our white, straight, middle-class housing estate.
David Mitchell
I’m not a real estate developer. I’m a golfer. I’m a sportsman.

Gloria Swanson
If the guy out in the woods with the Michigan Militia is a real estate negotiator, instead of some crackpot, and has a normal life, that’s unnerving. You don’t want to think it’s as normal as the guy next door, hedging his lawn. It’s easier to demonize or separate them off from ‘us.’
Michael Moore
The miser, starving his brother’s body, starves also his own soul, and at death shall creep out of his great estate of injustice, poor and naked and miserable.
Theodore Parker
I got into real estate very much by accident.
Jeff Greene
Gramercy Park is a four-acre square given in perpetuity to the residents surrounding it, 170 years ago, by Samuel Ruggles, a real estate developer of immoderate means.
Bill Buford
New York as an industry is the best city for real estate. You’re in a very transparent market. If you need to liquidate, you make three phone calls and you could sell something, even in the worst market. It is also less forgiving; if you make a mistake you can lose money.
Aby Rosen
South Sydney is a very complicated and wonderful place.

South Sydney is a very complicated and wonderful place. You have some of the most expensive bits of real estate in the country and a large percentage of government housing.

Iggy Pop
I was into real estate. I was always an entrepreneur.

John Bishop
My dad had always bought and sold gold and other stuff. In ’81, he went broke because of real estate, so he moved us to Vegas and opened a small second-hand store. We always wanted a pawn license because there’s a lot more money in that.
Rick Harrison
When I am teaching, I first give out Tolstoy’s ‘Childhood,’ his first published book. It is so transparent. It gives you exactly what it was like to be on a Russian estate in 1830. You are there. And that is the hope when you sit down and write still, I think – that you can transmit something of what life is like now.
Claire Messud
London changes because of money. It’s real estate. If they can build some offices or expensive apartments they will, it’s money that changes everything in a city.
David Bailey
I’m a real estate guy.
Robert Kiyosaki
I don’t want to get into the ‘who’s a hostage-taker’ discussion here, but what is the estate tax? It’s a double tax on death. Economists will tell you that it’s really not a tax that soaks the rich, but it’s a tax on capital that deprives business investment and therefore job creation.
Paul Ryan
In the commercial real estate business, brokers spearhead major accounts. But they wouldn’t have customers without the people who oversee construction.
Roger Staubach
Me and my dad are the biggest promoters of an estate tax in the US. It’s not a popular position.
Bill Gates
I do a lot of media work, I’ve been investing and I’m involved with real estate. It’s totally different from what I had been doing but I find it challenging and fun. To be honest, I really don’t miss the track. I pretty well accomplished what I set out to do and it was time to move on.
Donovan Bailey
To finance this trade deficit, the U.S. has to borrow from the rest of the world or sell American assets like stocks, businesses, and real estate to the rest of the world.

Bill Huizenga
Samuel Beckett’s estate will not license productions of his plays that are not performed as written.
Terry Teachout
All those predictions about how much economic growth will be created by this, all of those new jobs, would be created by the things we wanted – the extension of unemployment insurance and middle class tax cuts. An estate tax for millionaires adds exactly zero jobs. A tax cut for billionaires – virtually none.
Anthony Weiner
There was no theater in my high school. I think even our art program was cut – it was so bad. I didn’t even know that was a possibility in college or in high school; I hadn’t even thought of it. It was pretty negligent. My father has run a bulldozer all of his life, and my mom is in real estate.
Boyd Holbrook
We would go to the football pitch near my estate and play until it was dark.
Reiss Nelson
When I gave up law to go into real estate, my mother said, ‘How can you give up the law?’ But she lived long enough to see the Bulls win all six championships. She would wear all six pendants at the same time. She could barely stand up.
Jerry Reinsdorf
I favor the abolition of all Social Security, Medicare and estate taxes. In their place, we should create a simple income tax system that has no deductions or credits at all.
Ari Fleischer
When you’re trying to expand your business, it’s about real estate in the stores.
Janet Evanovich
The estate tax punishes years of hard work and robs families of part of their heritage by imposing a huge penalty on inheritance after death – a tax on money that has already been taxed.
Mike Fitzpatrick
I would buy a house, and try to buy a house every month. I didn’t have education or information about real estate at the time. I learned after I bought a few houses, and then I kind of fell in love with the rehabbing of the houses and fixing them up and just the whole process and turned it into a business.
Yo Gotti
If Franschhoek has a fault, it is in the lavish refurbishment of wine farms and estates which has reached absurd proportions. Some, like Graf Delaire Estate, are brand new, with jewellery shops, indoor streams, and very high-end lodges for rent at prices not many South Africans can afford.
Justin Cartwright
The ancillary aspect of every British city now is the council estate.
V. S. Naipaul
I was born on a council estate with a mum who, despite doing everything she could for me, couldn’t help me learn to read and write because she had never been taught herself. As the jargon would have it now, I was not ‘school ready.’
Angela Rayner
There is no question that Australia’s most dramatic assault on the world market has been with its value wines. These are generally not from specific appellations but blends made by huge enterprises like Penfolds, Rosemount or Casella Estate – the group behind Yellow Tail.
Robert M. Parker, Jr.
The problem with real estate is that it’s local. You have to understand the local market.
Robert Kiyosaki
I was born in Tower Hamlets in London Hospital, Mile End. I grew up in Stepney on a council estate and lived with my mum and only saw my dad on weekends.
Wes Streeting
I want to be known internationally as one of the most creative real estate developers in low-income communities. I want to be known as someone who actually promotes economic diversity and does a great job.
Majora Carter
I've always wanted to be the biggest real estate man to

I’ve always wanted to be the biggest real estate man to come down the pike.
Leona Helmsley
Here, anyone can become president. We’ve had haberdashers, generals, lawyers, peanut farmers, community organizers and a real estate developer, to name a few. But perhaps no one had a better resume than George H.W. Bush.
Martha MacCallum
Longevity, for a columnist, is a simple proposition: Once you start, you don’t stop. You do it until you die or can no longer put a sentence together. It has always been my intention to die at my desk, although my most cherished ambition is to outlive the estate tax.
Charles Krauthammer
I was brought up on a council estate in the countryside near Stoke Prior in Worcestershire, but I adored visiting the farm where my father worked.
Trudie Styler
Musically, what happened was this: I retired twice. I retired after The Black Crowes, and I retired after Brand New Immortals. Then, we started buying real estate, which really took up my time. I was busy. I was still teaching yoga, but I was mostly busy running business, and I was fine. I was happy.
Johnny Colt
Well, real estate is always good, as far as I’m concerned.
Donald Trump
I’ve had many friends over the years who have been in same-sex relationships, and the family denies hospital visitations when one is sick. Or when the estate is settled and people who have built a life together has everything taken away from them either by the families or the taxman.
David Furnish
Plenty of people are intrigued by their family history. Growing up as the son of West Indian immigrants who moved to London in the 1950s and 60s, I was especially fascinated by anecdotes about the lives of my Guyanese relatives, which seemed a million miles away from Tottenham’s Broadwater Farm estate.
David Lammy
Even at 10 years old, Jonathan and I started saying things like, ‘Hey, what about this for the property?’ And I remember my parents saying, ‘You’re 10. What do you know about real estate? Go play with toys.’
Drew Scott
As soon as I speak, I think people go, ‘Well, he obviously must have grown up on a council estate, gone to a comprehensive school and be working class – so I can relate to him.’
John Bishop
For years, as a seller of real estate and star of reality TV, Donald Trump made a living wooing customers and viewers. His selling skills were good enough that he even convinced voters to elect him as president in spite of his near-total lack of qualifications.
Max Boot
If folks really want music in their community they can do it very cheaply. It doesn’t have to be a $50 million program. All we need is just a little real estate.
Steve Miller
The first wave of the Internet was really about data transport. And we didn’t worry much about how much power we were consuming, how much cooling requirements were needed in the data centers, how big the data center is in terms of real estate. Those were almost afterthoughts.
Padmasree Warrior
We’ve had hurricanes in Florida forever. And the question is, ‘What do we do about the fact that we have built expensive structures, real estate and population centers, near those vulnerable areas?’
Marco Rubio
Myself and some kids on our estate became obsessed with the creation of the ultimate go-kart. This ambition culminated in the creation of a six-man super-cart, which was essentially a plank of wood with four wheels, and a failed attempt to jump a tributary of the River Severn powered only by Rex, our dog.
Greg Davies
Often in gothic novels there’s a large house, an estate, and it’s symbolic of that culture. Usually it’s sort of moldering or rotted or something, and sometimes it’s a whole community.
Joyce Carol Oates
I thought I would spend the rest of my life being a good tax lawyer. The interesting thing about being a tax lawyer is, none of your clients are poor. I had clients come to me and say, ‘Can you help us make investments?’ That led to me getting into the real estate business.
Jerry Reinsdorf
I was a law student when I started acting in plays. I was a real estate lawyer but I continued acting on stage because that is what gave me a lot of happiness.
Shraddha Srinath
When you’re on this major English estate, breathing in the English air, and it’s untouched, you can feel its presence. It’s a whole different feel. It really felt like we were there living it. It didn’t feel modern, ever.
Jennifer Coolidge
I always considered myself working class, because I was brought up on a council estate. I still do, really. I mean, I might have a bit more money now than I did then, but it’s in your head, class, I think. It’s how you feel in there.
Mark Bonnar
Engel & Volkers is unlike any other real estate company I have known and I am proud to be part of an organization that raises the bar to such high levels.
Anthony Hitt
Between income taxes and employment taxes, capital gains taxes, estate taxes, corporate taxes, property taxes, Social Security taxes, we’re being taxed to death.
Chuck Norris
What is superfluous to your poor estate, distribute. This is distributive charity: a virtue so sacred that crimes against it are the forerunner of inevitable doom.
Vincent McNabb
We are born weak, we need strength; helpless, we need aid; foolish, we need reason. All that we lack at birth, all that we need when we come to man’s estate, is the gift of education.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
I didn’t come from a council estate like a lot of the lads do.
Peter Crouch
No body can be healthful without exercise, neither natural body nor politic, and certainly, to a kingdom or estate, a just and honourable war is the true exercise.
Francis Bacon
Oasis can’t be summed up in one word. I could do a sentence: Boys from council estate made it very, very big.
Noel Gallagher
I grew up on a council estate in south London; my dad was a bus driver and my mum sewed clothes to bring in extra money. My parents worked hard and were able to save up and buy a home for our family.
Sadiq Khan
The real estate business was something Dad and I could do together.
Ross Perot, Jr.
Jude has a very different character. It is not the cradle of Christianity, or of the assembly on earth: it is its decay and its death here below. It does not keep its first estate.
John Nelson Darby
It is no secret that our tax code is drastically outdated and burdensome to all Americans. Fortunately, more and more people are aware daily of the inequities that arise from things such as the estate tax, and it has come to the forefront of Congress’ agenda.
Jeff Miller
I don't like the repeal of the estate tax.

I don’t like the repeal of the estate tax.
Stanley Druckenmiller
I had a couple come in with a negative amortization mortgage on a house that costs way too much relative to their income. They’re consuming real estate, not investing in it.
Chris Cooper
I bought an island in 1987. It’s in one of the lakes in Canada. I went around it in my boat and went to the real estate office and bought it. It’s the best $65,000 I’ve ever spent. My family camp on it and we have great times there.
Dan Aykroyd
For I, hearing my Lord’s estate amongst many more estates was to be sold, and that the wives of the owners should have an allowance therefrom, it gave me hopes I should receive a benefit thereby.
Margaret Cavendish
We call it ‘demo therapy.’ We’re therapists on top of designers and contractors and real estate agents and we really sometimes have to push people past their comfort zone and show them what they like, they just didn’t know that they like.
Drew Scott
I was happy living in a high-rise council estate in Glasgow up until our sixth album.
Jim Kerr
The value of real estate to a city is huge. A community that is invested in making deep roots in an area creates a commitment to making their city the best it can be. It becomes a common bond.
Hilary Farr
The one thing all humans share is that we all inhabit the same limited amount of real estate, which is Planet Earth.
Bjarke Ingels
Gordon Ramsay grew up in a tourist town, Stratford-Upon-Avon, but in a part tourists don’t visit – a council estate: a concrete bunker subsidized by the local government, synonymous with deprivation and blight.
Bill Buford
Without grounding, it’s easy to embrace the ‘baller’ lifestyle: dropping out of tech, throwing money at cars, boats and real estate, and slipping into a cycle of spending and indulgence.
Ryan Holmes
After I dropped out of college at the age of 19, I became a mortgage broker, and when I went back to school I thought about going into real estate law. I probably would have made a lot more money and died of boredom by now.
Alice Dreger
I grew up on a council estate in Camden and my mum and dad split up when I was about seven.
Roisin Conaty
I feel a great responsibility playing a historical figure because whether they were good or bad, I feel like the person deserves a fair shake. It’s like being the executor of their estate in some ways.
Vincent Piazza
To be successful in real estate, you must always and consistently put your clients’ best interests first. When you do, your personal needs will be realized beyond your greatest expectations.
Anthony Hitt
I think it’s hard for anyone to get into real estate or Hollywood.
Malik Yoba
I grew up on a council estate.
Wunmi Mosaku
I used to be in the real estate business, and I have three areas of interest: Chickamauga Lock, Chickamauga Lock, and Chickamauga Lock.
Zach Wamp
No offense to Bushwick, where all my neighbors greeted me on the street and there is a growing arts community and a curious beauty to its industrial zone, but Bushwick is no Williamsburg, even if the real estate agents would have you believe it is.
Jami Attenberg
I joined a band because I didn’t like school, and there’s nothing else I’d rather have done. If I really wanted to make money, I’d be in real estate. But I’m rich enough. I have a son and daughter, a lovely home, and if I see something I like, I can buy it. That’s rich enough.
Robert Palmer
I started in the supermarket business in the early ’70s. And by ’75, ’76, I realized you don’t have a business unless you own the real estate.
John Catsimatidis
You know, when my grandfather died, we were told that his estate was worth about $30 million. And it turns out it was closer to a billion. So that’s hardly a rounding error.
Mary L. Trump
As income from work has become more concentrated in America, the super rich have invested in businesses, real estate, art, and other assets. The income from these assets is now concentrating even faster than income from work.
Robert Reich
Domain names and websites are Internet real estate.
Marc Ostrofsky
I’ve leased the apartment; my partner is going to come out here. But we’re keeping our house in Chicago because real estate is a really good investment and also because it is just crammed with full of stuff!
Ted Allen
I never thought I’d be doing TV shows about real estate.
Scott McGillivray
If you love things or ideas or people that contradict each other, you have to be prepared to fight for every square inch of intellectual real estate you occupy.
G. Willow Wilson
I think a lot of people try to time the market when it comes to buying or selling a property or investing in real estate, but the real secret to real estate is not timing the market, but time in the market.
Scott McGillivray
Elvis Presley’s estate is making 30 million a year, and they say that Marley shouldn’t be, but he is from a much poorer part of the world, and a lot more people need the money.
Kevin Macdonald
Dad is in commercial real estate. Mom is a writer and a retired teacher.
James Snyder
If I am going to get in a cab to go home, and I see a sign for an open house, I will go in. I like real estate because I am the boss.
Lorraine Bracco
I think the thing about New York City real estate is that you kind of just take what you can get when you’re renting.
Leandra Medine
I support exemptions from the estate tax to ensure that

I support exemptions from the estate tax to ensure that when Maine farm owners die, their families will be able to continue to farm the land that they have protected and lived on, often for generations.
Tom Allen
I wanted to solve every real estate problem with software.
Glenn Kelman
Many novice real estate investors soon quit the profession and invest in a well-diversified portfolio of bonds. That’s because, when you invest in real estate, you often see a side of humanity that stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and saving money shelter you from.
Robert Kiyosaki
I’ve had journalists beg me to please say something negative about my estate.
Freema Agyeman
Moving is easy, exciting, an adventure – when you’re young. Later, not so much. I love Massachusetts, my old home. Sometimes, late at night, I even study the real estate ads in my old hometown. But it’s not even a fantasy. My parents are both gone. The world I left doesn’t exist anymore. Neither does the person I was.
Susan Estrich
Silicon Valley has evolved a critical mass of engineers and venture capitalists and all the support structure – the law firms, the real estate, all that – that are all actually geared toward being accepting of startups.
Elon Musk
More and more, the superrich don’t live in one place but many, flitting between multiple homes on different continents, flying to them on private jets, perhaps, concealing many of their real estate purchases through webs of shell companies and trusts.
Anand Giridharadas
I joined Norwich when I was 15 and moved away from a life living on an estate in Cardiff and everything I knew. I moved away from my girlfriend, who is my wife now, and my nan, who has now passed away. I missed a lot.
Craig Bellamy
I came from a council estate in the ’80s which was predominantly black, white or Indian. Being Chinese mixed race we instantly stuck out.
Gok Wan
From my estate, where my mum still lives now, from my bedroom you could see Wembley. I go back a lot, my brothers are still there and she does a lot of cooking for me. To try to get a coach doesn’t make sense, Willesden to Wembley. You can’t do that really.
Yannick Bolasie
On the estate tax, if you look at the couple of groups who are the biggest advocates for repealing the estate tax, it really is the pass-through business, and it’s the farmers.
Gary Cohn
Every player has their own story, but I always thought of playing on my estate with dreams of what I might be able to achieve.
Alex Scott
I went to UC Berkeley. I graduated in 1976, immediately moved to L.A. with a degree in English – which did no more for you then than it does for you now – then sold real estate and did theater for nine years.
Kurt Fuller
My mother raised two children on a housing estate, in a place where people said once you got on, you never got off. And she believed in me. So when people tell you that you can’t, you can.
Shirley Ballas
I never had to say to myself, ‘OK now, I’ve got to grow up and work for a bank, or go and sell real estate.’ I never had to make that kind of break.
Luke Wilson
I don’t think acting is addictive. If I stopped acting tomorrow, I really wouldn’t care. If you told me that I would have to sell real estate in New York City to look after my family, that would be fine with me.
Alec Baldwin
I’m investing. I’m taking a lot of bitcoin, selling it as the price goes up, and putting it into real estate. Because then if bitcoin goes to zero – which, it’s an experiment, it could – I won’t be on the street.
Charlie Shrem
It was a long, circuitous route from my mom’s real estate business to Netflix. It didn’t happen overnight. Or in a year. Or even in ten years. But it happened.
Marc Randolph
There is no tax policy that better describes how out of touch America’s liberals are with the rest of the country than the estate tax. According to the Left, government seizure of a large share of the wealth of an American taxpayer is a moral imperative that serves social justice. Most Americans disagree, big time.
Kevin Hassett
I was born in Africa but brought up in the north-east of England. Most of my childhood was spent living on a council estate that overlooked the Tyne and I went to the same junior school as Paul Gascoigne, of whom I have a vague memory.
David Olusoga
We were using the record as a tool to invest money into real estate all through the South, because we were living in an era where the South was changing.
Solomon Burke
I grew up in northwest London on a council estate. My parents are Irish immigrants who came over here when they were very young and worked in menial jobs all their lives, and I’m one of many siblings.
Amanda Hale
For me, I love doing different things with real estate.
Pat Connaughton
The National Multifamily Housing Council, a trade association of apartment owners, managers, developers and lenders, has come to the defense of the interest deduction and other provisions favorable to the real estate industry, describing them as ‘core principles’ and promising a fight.
James B. Stewart
Many people are smart enough to know how to manage themselves out of the estate tax.
Gary Cohn
When I grew up, my race was not a thing. My identity was in my class. It was not about colour on my estate.
Michaela Coel
For example, if I make money, I put it in real estate. I always did very well. Location, location, location.
Ivana Trump
Shikun & Binui, our infrastructure and real estate company, implements sustainability by building their projects 100% sustainable while educating their employees worldwide.
Shari Arison
My ‘something borrowed’ was a stunning pair of vintage diamond drop earrings from my friend Afshin at Estate Diamond Jewelry in N.Y.C. My ‘something blue’ was my tanzanite right hand ring that I bought for myself in Tanzania after climbing Mt Kilimanjaro.
Brooke Baldwin
I’ve spent my whole life in real estate, whether it’s in our hotels or looking at the competition, and it’s my curse to walk into every room and not be drawn to the flaws and have the little imperfections drive me crazy – because they didn’t need to happen.
Donald Trump, Jr.
Increasingly, the real estate developers can’t get bank loans for their project financing in China. They’re now going into the Hong Kong market to raise money in the bond market at very, very high rates, as high as 15, 20 percent.
James Chanos
Until you play it, St. Andrews looks like the sort of r

Until you play it, St. Andrews looks like the sort of real estate you couldn’t give away.
Sam Snead
I think if people are passionate about something, it could be real estate or biochemistry, and that spark gets turned on in them, everyone’s beautiful in that zone.
Cindy Crawford
I got sort of sick of seeing Asians being the blank, bland real estate agent or something. I didn’t care. It didn’t mean anything to me.
John Cho
You’re not going to have something set on a council estate that explores all elements of human existence, the variety of experience inherent in any community.
Eddie Marsan
My grandfather was a wealthy and respected merchant in Montclair, New Jersey, where I was born. But his estate was wiped out in the Great Depression, and as a result, I had what I consider the ideal upbringing: We were a proud family, good citizens, and we didn’t have a sou.
John C. Bogle
It’s great to look back at when we used to play in the neighbourhood, seeing mum shouting and also how we grew up playing in football tournaments between the estates. We’d go to another estate and play them. Also, seeing yourself progress bit by bit – those are all happy memories.
Wissam Ben Yedder
To my real estate agent, Chernobyl is a fixer-upper.
Yakov Smirnoff
We started out as actors. When we were coming out of high school, we didn’t want to be struggling actors, and – I remember the conversation – we were like, ‘Let’s invest in real estate!’
Jonathan Scott
If you offshore, if you telecommute, if you do anything to minimize your company’s physical real estate, there are real consequences to its culture and cohesion.
Dylan Taylor
Quality for me is key, and this stands true in every facet of my business from real estate, hotels, and fashion.
Ivanka Trump
Real estate is my life. It is my day job, if you will. But it consumes my nights and weekends, too.
Ivanka Trump
I grew up on a council estate, but I still had a roof over my head, we still had food, I went on school trips. I wasn’t completely deprived.
Joe Wicks
Whether you come from a council estate or a country estate, your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude.
Michelle Obama
Half of this business is politics. As real estate developers, it’s our job to go in there and get beat up.
Ross Perot, Jr.
Real estate is the key cost of physical retailers. That’s why there’s the old saw: location, location, location.
Jeff Bezos
Newspapers have an extraordinary amount of local content, including real estate listings and restaurant reviews.
Kimbal Musk
As things mature – whether they be real estate, rock n’ roll, politics, festivals, radio – there’s an efficiency that develops, and with it, very often, comes some soul-crushing truths.
James Murphy
It doesn’t seem very long ago I was a girl from a council estate with nothing but dreams.
Shirley Ballas
If Oasis is the sound of a council estate singing its heart out, then the Libertines sounded like someone just putting something in the rubbish chute at the back of the estate, trying to work out what day it is.
Pete Doherty
If I hadn’t been fair, I would never have made the $6 billion in real estate deals that I did. I mean, if you’re not fair, people don’t want to deal with you.
Jerry Reinsdorf
In the mid-1990s, when Russia was undergoing a construction boom, I entered the real estate development market.
Yelena Baturina
I have been wearing Air Max for so long, since I was seven playing around in the estate; I feel like I know my Air Max well.
The Nasdaq bubble and crash were followed by the real estate bubble then subprime crash, which led to the unprecedented printing of trillions of dollars in an attempt to prevent a global depression.
Robert Kiyosaki
I am being embezzled by a monstrous ring of accountants, estate planners and lawyers who are mercilessly slandering me and trying to kill my career and, I believe, murder me in order to gain control of my royalties.
Randy Quaid
For me the greatest source of income is still movies. Nothing – stocks, financial speculation, real estate speculation or businesses – makes more money for me than making movies.
Jackie Chan
The positive aspect of my negative view is essentially that you shouldn’t own cash and government bonds, but you should be in assets like real estate or equities or precious metals or in commodities.
Marc Faber
Growing up on our estate, we were all different colours, but we were all really poor. I never really realised that black was a problem for some people.
Michaela Coel
I was an estate agent for three years. That was pretty grim.
Richard C. Armitage
If I have cash and I can’t figure a way to put it into real estate or my business, I hold it in gold and silver.
Robert Kiyosaki
I hope we business people can invest more aggressively outside Metro Manila, whether in real estate, factories, or other enterprises, in order to give equal opportunities to all other regions.
Andrew Tan
I always felt uncomfortable with real estate because buildings don’t move, and neighborhoods change.
Stephen A. Schwarzman
I write for no other purpose than to add to the beauty

I write for no other purpose than to add to the beauty that now belongs to me. I write a book for no other reason than to add three or four hundred acres to my magnificent estate.
Jack London
Some of the higher price of L.A. real estate does reflect the intrinsic pleasure of living there, as I’m reminded every time I walk out my door into the perfect weather.
Virginia Postrel
Whether you’re an obstetrician or a third-grade teacher or a real estate agent, you know when you’re doing good work. You’re passionate about it.
Susan Isaacs
I came from a wealthy family. I made over my share of the estate to various charities.
Abbe Pierre
For Randy Neugebauer, the Texas Republican who chairs the investigations subcommittee, the top sources of funding for his 2012 reelection campaign are from the insurance, banking, finance, securities and real estate industries.
Gary Weiss
I was a ball boy for the Atlanta Falcons; I was a tax assessor – this was all in high school – I was an account assistant at the courthouse, and then I was a real estate assistant.
Deshaun Watson
The real estate agent had to go door-to-door in the apartment building we wanted to rent, asking if it was OK for this interracial family – my mom is white and I was a 1-year-old half-African kid – to live in the apartment building.
Tom Morello
Telly never has any smart, amusing intellectuals living on a council estate.
Caitlin Moran
The James Brown story is not about James Brown. It’s about who’s getting paid, whose interest is involved, who can squeeze the estate and black history for more.
James McBride
When I was a child, growing up on a council estate in the northeast of England, I imbibed enough of the background racial tensions of the late 1970s and 1980s to feel profoundly unwelcome in Britain.
David Olusoga
At first, the only thing that I learned was to save. Then I learned about mutual fund, then later on direct stock investments. I also went into small businesses and even real estate.
Bo Sanchez
Natalie’s estate is handled by Global Icons, and they police the world so her picture isn’t on a T-shirt or coffee cup unless we approve of it.
Robert Wagner
I do real estate.
Kevin Dillon
With inheritances, it’s really important not to give the impression that you’re extorting your children, and one way you can not do that is to make it clear to them that you’re not leaving the whole of your estate to them at all, but to various charitable organizations.
Martha Nussbaum
I grew up on an estate in Peckham.
Ashley Walters
My mum and dad had four pubs when we were growing up, but the main one was the New Inn in Hattersley, on the estate. It was a very good pub.
Ricky Hatton
Engel & Volkers is international, high end and associated with the very best in real estate which is well represented by our new Park Avenue address.
Anthony Hitt
When I am grown to man’s estate I shall be very proud and great. And tell the other girls and boys Not to meddle with my toys.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Investing in Chicago property is just Wanda’s first move into the U.S. real estate market.
Wang Jianlin
I’ve made money in real estate, hotel, and restaurant investments.
Hill Harper
We do not create marriage from scratch. Instead, in the elegant language of the marriage ceremony, we ‘enter into the holy estate of matrimony.’
Nancy Pearcey
For the first forty years of his real estate career, my grandfather never acquired debt. In the 1970s and ’80s, however, all of that changed as Donald’s ambition grew larger and his missteps became more frequent.
Mary L. Trump
When you’re hitting a fairway wood, you’ve got a lot of real estate to cover to get to your target. Your first instinct is probably to give it a little more power because you’re worried about coming up short.
Ernie Els
L.A. streets aren’t just paved real estate but a cosmology, a manifestation of the city’s sensibility.
Steve Erickson
I want to be a successful landlord. I like real estate.
Two Chainz
IT has been observed by several gentlemen, in vindication of this motion, that if it should be carried, neither my life, liberty, nor estate will be affected.
Robert Walpole
I was raised on an estate in an inner city school where people had a go about my size, people saying I am too big to play football – which still happens today – and I used that to inspire me.
Adebayo Akinfenwa
I am deeply humbled by the hope and trust that Londoners have placed in me. I grew up on a council estate just a few miles from City Hall, and I never imagined that Londoners would one day elect someone like me to lead our great capital city.
Sadiq Khan
You don’t have to be too bright to get into real estate.
David Lichtenstein
No Man is richer for having his Estate all in Money, Plate, etc. lying by him, but on the contrary, he is for that reason the poorer.
Dudley North
A few years ago, there were requests to me, Can we make this? I said that I have no rights. Contact the Hitchcock estate, which won’t release it for a remake.
Patricia Highsmith
Did you know that the state is the proud owner of a con

Did you know that the state is the proud owner of a condo complex in Conway? This budget adds a real estate manager position to assess what we own, and sell those properties that we don’t need and shouldn’t own.
John Lynch
I’ve had a lot of different companies. I’ve been in banking and automobiles and real estate and a lot of things.
Tom Benson
We will strengthen crackdown on illegal renovations and enforce a restitution of large-scale development gains to better stabilize the real estate market.
Park Won-soon
The only principles of public conduct that are worthy of a gentleman or a man are to sacrifice estate, ease, health, and applause, and even life, to the sacred calls of his country.
James Otis
I’m a businesswoman. You know, I have other investments too, real estate. A long time ago, I would buy a house and flip it. But now everybody does that, so I don’t do that anymore because there’s no houses out there to buy.
Vanna White
As a member of the often maligned fourth estate, it is so refreshing to have a conversation instead of a buttoned up interview in a stifling studio.
Margaret Brennan
I think of real estate as a little bit like cooking or like art.
Jerry Speyer
Geo-stationary orbit is actually real estate – you can only put so many satellites up there. It’s like waterfront property at the beach. Everyone builds the biggest thing they can put up there.
Jim Cantrell
I didn’t come from a real estate background originally. I was going to school for business and was struggling to find a place to live because there weren’t enough rental properties available to students.
Scott McGillivray
I work in the commercial real estate sector.
Marc Veasey
I was at UC Berkeley as an undergrad when my father lost a lot of money in real estate investments in Northern California. He wanted a change of pace, so in the early ’90s, my family moved to L.A., right in the middle of Tehrangeles. It was a culture shock for me.
Maz Jobrani
Now, one thing I tell everyone is learn about real estate. Repeat after me: real estate provides the highest returns, the greatest values and the least risk.
Armstrong Williams
Home purchases that are very highly leveraged or unaffordable subject the borrower and lender to a great deal of risk. Moreover, even in a strong economy, unforeseen life events and risks in local real estate markets make highly leveraged borrowers vulnerable.
Ben Bernanke
There’s no such thing as a favorite investment. But I think I tend to invest in Asia in promising countries, in equities, in real estate, and I own precious metals, obviously.
Marc Faber
A few months ago, I had the pleasure of actually visiting the Playboy Mansion. I saw the peacocks, fed grapes to the monkeys, and even braved the fabled Grotto. After seeing the estate, I understood why anyone would be reluctant to leave.
Diablo Cody
I’m lucky. The best possible place in the world for training is Addis Ababa, so I am home all the time except when I am racing. I like to be there, near my family, my kids, also the real estate business I run with my wife.
Haile Gebrselassie
Agatha Christie holds special personal memories for me because my mum, a television producer called Pat Sandys, had been the first person to persaude the Agatha Christie estate to put one of her stories on T.V.
Samantha Bond
In real estate, if you’re hustling and maintaining a good work ethic, you’ll get deals.
Matt Leinart
I’ve made my career, made money in real estate and real estate development.
Matt Rosendale
My mom was a single mother. She had six siblings in a big Irish family, all descended from shanty Irish folks who arrived after the Famine. They settled along the Cuyahoga River. It’s the river that caught on fire. We’re real good at picking real estate.
Rory O’Malley
