“When you’re a horse trader, it’s better to come home with the money over the horse.”
– Jack Rooker, Real Estate Developer
NATIONAL DUDLEY ON HORSETRADING
I never met Jack Rooker, but he’s one of the greats in building our city.
I heard his quote twice at an Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors event and just loved it.
Jack was in a warehouse deal that had done well and received an offer. His partners wanted to hold out for a better offer, but the market was turning and the next offer wasn’t certain.
Jack’s quote epitomizes a generation of developers in our community who used a disciplined approach to development and built our city into what it is today. Because in the horse trading business, money will always buy another horse.
What other quotes come to mind?
