    -People at the end of the day are really the foundation of any business, and so I think building the right team and having the right culture is super important – Neal Gemassmer
    - I think PropTech is an interesting term these days. I think at the end of the day, though PropTech can be defined as innovation and another effort to create value for clients. So it's to be creative – Neal Gemassmer
    -It's so important for people to get involved in associations and meet the people leading it, because these associations are there to connect people – Louisa Dickins
    -The interesting thing about real estate for me is that everyone is exposed to it… we're all born into real estate, we grow up in real estate, we study and rent apartments, we go to restaurants, we go to malls and at some point in time we may buy our own real estate. Tt's all very familiar to us – Neal Gemassmer
    -The level of innovation happening the market is just tremendous – Neal Gemassmer
