things change, but some things do stay closer to the same.

My last post was in August of 2007.  It hinted at a bright future for the Dallas-Fort Worth commercial real estate market.  Things can change...and they have.  Although much of the country is locked into the fear of doom and gloom as it relates to the economy, DFW has stayed somewhat insulated.  Am I saying it's great times, NO, but it's not near as bad in the DFW area as it is in other parts of the U.S.  Why? our values never got too out of line, never too high.  Is the economy slowing?  Are jobs being lost?  Yes, but Dallas-Fort Worth never seems to take the brunt of the problems.  Call me an optimist, but I believe we can weather this storm.  It might be a bit bumpy, but we can make it through it.

Dane,  I'm weathering the storm as well staying positive and working things differently help to keep things moring forward, things have slowed down but they are not dead!  Thanks for your post.

Go Dallas!  I am an exiled Texan in MA.  BUT, gas is down to $1.67, the temp is 44 (lastnight 12) and God is still God!  It is a good time to be in real estate!  (Jim Coker @ Dover Investments on Preston Road is always looking for good commercial properties.)

That's good to hear but also a great reminder to stay focused on the big picture, which really isn't the day-to-day events we see and hear about in the news.  The big picture is what we want to accomplish in business, in our personal lives.  In that light, we can weather any storm with the proper plan.  (And welcome back to the Rain!)
