Buy real state in areas where the path exists … and buy more real estate where the is no path, but you can create your own. 

David Waronker

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 investing, even on a very small scale, remains a tried and true means of building an individual’s cash flow and wealth.

Robert T. Kiyosaki 

Real estate is the best investment in the world because it is the only thing they’re not making anymore of.

Will Rogers

The major fortunes in America have been made in land.

John D. Rockefeller

Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate. More money has been made in real estate than in all industrial investments combined. The wise young man or wage earner of today invests his money in real estate.

Andrew Carnegie

An investment in real estate is a surefire way to build wealth over time.

Sam Zell

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

Buying real estate is not only the best way, the quickest way, the safest way, but the only way to become wealthy.

Marshall Field

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

Find out where the people are going and buy land before they get there.

William Penn Adair

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

A man complained that on his way home to dinner he had every day to pass through that long field of his neighbors. I advised him to buy it and it would never seem long again.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Real estate is the purest form of entrepreneurship.

Brian Buffini

Real estate is the best investment for small savings. More money is made from the rise in real estate values than from all other causes combined.
