Here are a collection of famous quotations from some of the leaders in investing, business, and finance. These quotes give excellent insight into real estate, investing in real estate, property development,  and the values of owning real estate or buildings:


“Owning a home is a keystone of wealth.. both financial affluence and emotional security”. –Suze Orman

 

“It’s tangible, it’s solid, it’s beautiful. It’s artistic, from my standpoint, and I just love real estate.” – Donald Trump

 

“Every day, you’ll have opportunities to take chances and to work outside your safety net. Sure, it’s a lot easier to stay in your comfort zone.. in my case, business suits and real estate.. but sometimes you have to take risks. When the risks pay off, that’s when you reap the biggest rewards.” – Donald Trump

 

“Well, real estate is always good, as far as I’m concerned.” – Donald Trump

 

“I made a tremendous amount of money on real estate. I’ll take real estate rather than go to Wall Street and get 2.8 percent. Forget about it.” –Ivan Trump

 

“I always felt very secure and very safe with real estate. Real estate always appreciates.” –Ivan Trump

 

“Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate.”-Andrew Carnegie

“Landlords grow rich in their sleep.”-John Stuart Mill

 

“Buying real estate is not only the best way, the quickest way, the safest way, but the only way to become wealthy.” -Marshall Field

 

“The best investment on Earth is earth.”-Louis Glickman, American business executive

 

“Buy on the fringe and wait. Buy land near a growing city! Buy real estate when other people want to sell. Hold what you buy!”-John Jacob Astor

 

“Every person who invests in well-selected real estate in a growing section of a prosperous community adopts the surest and safest method of becoming independent, for real estate is the basis of wealth.”-Theodore Roosevelt

 

“Land monopoly is not only monopoly, but it is by far the greatest of monopolies; it is a perpetual monopoly, and it is the mother of all other forms of monopoly.”-Winston Churchill

 

“Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.”-Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

“Real estate is an imperishable asset, ever increasing in value. It is the most solid security that human ingenuity has devised. It is the basis of all security and about the only indestructible security.”-Russell Sage

 

“I have always liked real estate; farm land, pasture land, timber land and city property. I have had experience with all of them. I guess I just naturally like ‘the good Earth,’ the foundation of all our wealth.”-Jesse H. Jones, former federal government financier

 

“Buy real estate in areas where the path exists…and buy more real estate where there is no path, but you can create your own.”-David Waronker

 

“A man complained that [on] his way home to dinner he had every day to pass through that long field of his neighbor’s.  I advised him to buy it, and it would never seem long again.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

“The best investment on earth is earth.”-Louis Glickman

 

“It is a comfortable feeling to know tht you stand on your own ground.  Land is about the only think that can’t fly away.”-Anthony Trollope

 

“My own recipe for world peace is a bit of land for everyone.”-Gladys Taber

 

“There have been few things in my life which have had a more genial effect on my mind than the possession of a piece of land.”-Harriet Martineau

 

“Energy efficiency should be on the priority list for all home improvement work these days. Canny builders will be able to provide homeowners with energy efficient measures which help them to save money and the planet.”–Sarah Beeny

 

“Don’t stretch yourself too much with a mortgage. Buy within your means.. it’s not worth the sleepless nights.” –Sarah Beeny

 

“At a time when all the other builders were selling homes with basements but without carports, we would sell homes without basements and with carports. This allowed us to provide a more appealing product at a lower price. In other words, we felt we would be giving customers greater value.” – Eli Broad

 

“In my experience, in the real-estate business past success stories are generally not applicable to new situations. We must continually reinvent ourselves, responding to changing times with innovative new business models”. – Akira Mori
