Arthur Becker enjoys working with people he respects in both real estate and technology. What he enjoys most about his work is when he get to coordinate the work of experts and other talented people in his industry.

Through his past failures, he can avoid making the same mistakes that resulted in the failures.
He once worked at Parks Department when he was only sixteen, a job he says was his worst job ever and the reason behind his motivation to strive for lucrative jobs that are interesting at the same time.
According to Arthur, the secret to the success of a business is a good working relationship between management. His advice to co-workers is they should listen to each other and the market and always be flexible in whatever strategy they undertake.
