As Dorothy says in the Wizard of Oz...."There's no place like home!"  I just returned from vacation this past weekend.  I had a wonderful, relaxing time with my family, but it's good to be home.
 
You know how it is when you get back from being away....it's payback time!  While plowing through my many emails, I came across this "Round of Reasonable Perspective" and wanted to share it with you...

Another Round of Reasonable Perspective
"There is no question that we face formidable, long-term structural problems with our economy – problems that have made US markets less attractive in recent years. But these problems are surmountable. We have no qualms saying that the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship that has defined America in past crises will prevail today.

Though housing remains tepid and debt and deficit levels are rising, compared to the rest of the world the United States is in good shape. Our economic fundamentals are sound: manufacturing levels are up and interest rates and inflation are low. What's more, the broader economic recovery is translating into meaningful employment improvements and corporate-profit growth that could potentially reach a record high in this year's third quarter.

Risks clearly remain, but markets are always fraught with risks: there are no perfect markets. To the contrary, when markets seem the most perfect, that's when they are the most risky, as the housing and mortgage markets post-2006 have so painfully revealed. Things still aren't so rosy today, but that's okay, because we're sure that better days lie ahead."

And now for your Tuesday Coffee Break...I want to thank the amazing team at Summit Real Estate for "holding down the fort" while I was gone.  They enrich my life everyday!  Our business wouldn't be where it is today without their commitment, help and support.  Now for today's quote:
 
"Even 'Super-You' needs help and support. There is no shame in asking for assistance. Push aside the pride and show respect for the talent others can bring to the table.

And, remember that there is no such thing as a single-handed success: When you include and acknowledge all those in your corner, you propel yourself, your teammates and your supporters to greater heights.
