When I look back at 2007 I see it as a big transition year. It was the year that we realized that the market had turned. We saw consolidation on the rise. All companies played a bit of musical chairs. NAR fought the media, the media won.

While I’m a bit apprehensive about the coming new year of one thing I am certain. This industry is full of a lot of bright and talented people. I’m looking forward to seeing you again next year, swapping stories and celebrating your successes.

So 2008 give us the best you got! One thing is for sure, I’m going to be there.

Bring it!!

Happy Landings Everyone!
