While Memorial Day signifies the beginning of summer for most of us, it is a day meant to remember those who have fought and given their lives to provide us with the freedom we enjoy every day. Take some time this Monday, May 25, to say "thank you."

Very nice. Good information for your clients, and sweet of you to remember. Our Memorial celebrations have already begun! It snuck up on me, I can't believe this is the last Monday in May. Where does time go?

Peggy, things are getting busier around here, but closing are becoming more difficult, too. Buyer's are still very picky, and feel they can look around forever. Just gotta land 'em.

Marianne -- You are so right! I don't think I've had so many buyers as I do right now. Just wish SOMEONE would get off the fence! It'll happen, though, I KNOW it! :)

Peggy, I've gotten my client off the fence to make an offer. Only thing is, it's a low ball, which was countered, and then she walked. Now were working on another offer, low ball again But, at least trying to work towards meeting in the middle. Whew! The buyer's are there, but just tougher to get to the closing table.
