“I would say that the number one thing in today’s market I would recommend is driving for dollars, especially knowing that most people that come in don’t have a lot of money. Almost every market across the country right now is super hot.” – Cortney Jones
“Thinking outside of the box and looking at ways to find those people, like at pawn shops as an example, or through car mechanics and things like that, to just network with those types of people to say, ‘Hey, if you run into somebody that’s in a financial situation, just so you know, we can help them out,’ and give them your card. Doing those sorts of extraordinary extra different things rather than the same old that everybody else is doing is going to help.” – Cortney Jones
“I can’t tell you how many times a day I hear somebody say, ‘I’ve done everything and I’m not getting any calls.’ And I’ll get drilled down on it, and they’ve called like nine people and got nine no’s. And I’m like, dude, you got to get like a hundred of those, I mean, nine no’s is nothing. I get that before breakfast, you know. I think that they just think it’s going to be a matter of picking up a couple of phone calls and they’re going to get a deal, and that’s not it. I mean, you’ve got to grind.” – Cortney Jones
