It Just Keeps Getting Better!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Kinard Realty

I have to start this Blog with a with a positive. My business has truly picked up. I have been very busy and for that I am very thankful! Our newspaper reported yesterday that I unemployment was currently at 13.1% which is if I remember correctly the highest if not one of the highest in the nation.

Then after 24 years on his job we find out yesterday that effective March 31, 2010 my husband's employer will no longer provide Health Insurance because he can not afford the cost for his employees.

I have sent letters to my Congressman, Senator and even to the President simply because number one this is wrong on so many levels and number two because sitting around and doing nothing in my oppinion is some of the problem why things are as bad as they are.

I am going to do my best to take this entire situation as a "Glass Half Full" and continue to move forward. As I said at the beginning my business is up. I wrote up two offers yesterday and I will be meeting customers today so I have to say: "For that I am thankful!, It could be worse right?"

Paula, the turmoil moving through many of the lives for those of us in this new landscape of real estate is never expressed with numbers. Your positive attitude about your situation will make a difference.

I lived on Capitol Hill in DC for a quarter of a century before I relocated to Santa Fe NM and then years later became a Realtor. I left because the climate inside the beltway was foreign to my values and I could nolonger stomach the invasion of lobby money and the dailybehavior of the political class.

I still write letters now from Santa Fe and make phone calls to the Hill. As in the past, the only response I get is a request for money. I have learned the only thing I can change is my behavior and how I respond to someone else's. Hang in there!
