It's amazing the number of foreclosure filings, Scott.  These tough times aren't going away anytime soon for those without work and without options to reduce their monthly expenditures.

Have a great year.  Hopefully we'll be able to do some business together this year.

Hi Randy,

Thanks for the comment.  I see the numbers going up even more this year, but hopefully we see more job creation in Chicagoland (I'm trying to create a few jobs myself!) and maybe some more loan work-outs.
