There are a lot of retailers that are growing, they have no place to grow, so therefore there’s a lot more demand for A- and B-quality retail. The rents are going up.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
