Some of our favorite quotes from the show:

“But even so, people are selling up, and not necessarily because they can't keep their repayments. They're sick of being picked on and they don't have the certainty of what's going on.” – Michael Yardney

“If you go back over the last decade, there were many years other than the last three where rents didn't keep pace with inflation or just the cost of owning a property. But I can't see an end to this. There's no end in sight in the short term.” – Michael Yardney

“Of course, anyone can excel when they're feeling their peak. It's showing up consistently during these, I don't know, let's call them in-between days. That sets the foundation for success.” – Michael Yardney
