Len Elder is my favorite teacher. A mortgage broker, real estate broker, and attorney at law, Len writes cirricula for the Hogan School of Real Estate in Tucson, Arizona. Sunday a couple of months ago, I found him at Starbucks, papers strewn across the little round table, writing poetry. Len carries a book of his poetry in the trunk of his car. If you ask, he's likely to share it with you.
This particular Sunday morning, he was writing haiku. It's a Japanese form of poetry, consisting of 17 syllables divided (in English, at least) into three lines which consist of a "phrase" and a "fragment."
The teacher let me read over his shoulder. I copied this poem down on the back of my business card, and asked him to sign it. He did. Here's what he wrote:
He didn't mind when the foreclosure notice arrived. His soul had moved out long ago.

This Thanksgiving, no matter how tough the market, we are blessed to be where we are in life, sharing what we have with friends.
Been there and back: As a young man and a real estate developer during the downturn that followed Black Monday, October 1987, I experienced the pain of failure and foreclosure.
In this difficult market, I've shared that with many clients who face difficult choices. "I'm here to tell you that there's light in the darkness," I tell them, "and that ours is the most wonderful country on God's earth. You'll get through this. I did. All we need together is a plan. Just a little one. Let's take stock of your blessings and move forward."
It will be a good Thanksgiving, no matter what! And that's the real estate opinion of this Tucson, Arizona mortgage lender.
