I am really not one to toot my own horn, preferring to just go about my job in relative peace and quiet, but today I got to run around the office in a cape. It seems that writing this post every day for the last seven years has turned me into a better writer and I won a nationwide contest for writing a paragraph about how I was a superhero and helped another would-be-renter purchase a home. Amid the applause of my peers, the pomp and pageantry drove home the reality that what we do everyday for work can be very rewarding. Often I get so bogged down by the encumbrance of a swelling mountain of rules and regulations that I fail to remember the positive impact that our industry has on individuals and families. Well done real estate professionals, well done.
