Today’s Talking Point 11/18/09

This blog is dedicated to getting important information into real estate professionals’ hands in a timely matter.

However, today, I want to take a step back and reflect on our mission. We are responsible for rejuvenating a housing industry that has been decimated by a litany of bad decisions over the last few years. The task in front of us is daunting and the road to recovery is steep.

Yet, as I travel the country, I continue to meet professionals who refuse to give up, people who will not fall victim to circumstance, agents and leaders who are committed to bringing their region’s housing market back. They are people who realize they must help their neighbors and save their neighborhoods. They realize that their success as a Realtor should not be measured by the number of dollars they make but, instead, by the number of people they help.

I realize that income is a component of their work. But, there is no real estate professional today doing it solely for the money. They are helping people because it is the right thing to do. I salute each and every one of them.

And to the members of Harney’s Army, I am SO PROUD OF YOU. When I first thought of the idea of a pin to acknowledge your membership on our team, I thought it might be hokey or corny. However, seeing so many people at the NAR Conference proudly wearing their pins, I realize that to each of you it is like a shield you wear to announce you are well informed, trustworthy and, most of all, not going to cower to the size of the mission ahead. You will attempt what some think to be ridiculous in order to achieve the impossible. You will never lose faith in yourself nor the industry in which you work.


And to that, I can only say THANK YOU!!
