Who or what do you attribute to your success?..I attribute my success, to my ability to think outside of the box. In an industry set with many standards, I have been able to find new ways to make deals happen and solve the many problems that arise. Many people will follow a simple path, but every seller and buyer have their own unique interests which must be settled to come to a mutual agreement between the parties. Once you figure that out, the job becomes much easier.
