I brought them to see many buildings in NYC, and finally they signed a hard contract on one building, at a high price. After one year of hard work they couldn’t close the deal. They couldn’t get financing and they couldn’t flip the deal. They walked away from their deposit and we of course, didn’t get a commission. I put all my eggs in one basket and in the end I lost that basket…what I learned from this is that even the most apparently lucrative deal, can go awry. Never allow yourself to become too consumed with one deal. Continue to focus on all possible deals.
