Hey Karen, I am glad you made it. This is the coolest place for great advice, a warm support group and gosh knows how much moral support. Every one is seriously helpful!

Check out Yvonne Brown. She is a partner in crime (we are the "golfers" agents) and she is absolutely wonderful. If you take a cruise through the public site and you type in Vancouver... she is everywhere! She is also one of the nicest people I have met in this business.

I hope you do well, and CONGRATS on your closing. Happy Birthday to boot!

Oh.. guess whi is #2 in her office 2 months in a row??? Yay! I am having so much fun!
