Happy New Year Everyone! Did alot of you make some resolutions already? How many have you kept or broken? LOL!
Well, as for me, I made several important ones this year. Some professional and some personal and of course, they are equally difficult of course!
I made a vow to keep attending as much education as possible to stay on top of the Real Estate & Real Estate Appraisal Industry this year and stay appraised of what my local market is up to, so when out of state referrals continue to call me, I can give them up-to-date information at a moment's notice.
My personal goal this year is to finish two of my unfinished tasks, one of which I could use your help. I did property management for over 25 years and decided that alot of new property managers as well as seasoned managers would LOVE to have a quick reference guide for those urgent decisions and details they have to handle everyday. For instance, what do you do if you have a murder or death in your rental property? Do you know the steps to take? Or, what about the difficult troubled tenant who wakes you up in the middle of the night with bomb threats and is always in the local newspaper? Yes, these have happened to me and I still remember thinking back then, "I sure wish I knew somewhere to look for answers to this!"
So, here I am years later, the book is almost done and I have one section left unfinished, which is bizarre rental stories from other property managers and brokers and agents that would help others reading this quick reference guide. But please, don't submit your story if you don't want it to be published and let me know if you want your first name and city mentioned or how you want to be recognized, if at all! I have some people who even gave me their cellular phone number to publish, so if a future reader wants to call and ask questions, they can get ahold of him! Now that is dedication!! I can't wait to hear from you so I can finish this book !
Oh, and that second unfinished task is to complete the family scrapbook/cookbook to pass down to family members to enjoy in the years to come and that is moving along VERY SLOWLY.
In 2008, may you have Friends that care, Love to share, Health to spare, and Buyers and Sellers to get you THERE ...(to your own goals this year)!
