Fall

More great news in the housing market.

In my market research I came across this article and I am pretty sure it hits home:

Article on Housing Construction Starts

As I read this article, I thought to myself about the construction sites that I have seen popping up around Amherst and the Pioneer Valley. Sometimes I think that we live in a unique area and when I see that the trends are on a national level it brings me great confidence that we are heading in the right direction. It is great to see positive news about housing, and another interesting bit that stood out to me in the article was the fact that each new home built, adds 3 jobs annually.

Take a chance to read the article, and let me know what you think.

Day at Greenfield Community College

Today, I have the honor of speaking at my former school Greenfield Community College, (GCC). I was invited to speak in front of an E-Commerce class, with the expectation of discussing driving traffic to a website. My former Professor, Kathy Vranos was the one who invited me in. As I reflect on my time spent at GCC, I can clearly remember the times I spent in her classroom. I was actually fortunate to have her for a professor in 4 different classes, and I was driven to learn, and exceed my limitations thanks to my relationship that I shared with her. I have to laugh, because no matter how long or short the classes were, she never had enough time to share what she knew because she had such a wealth of knowledge in every subject she taught. She was always willing to listen, and give me feedback whenever I had a question for her. I only hope when students take her classes that they realize what a talented and enlightening professor that they have at their fingertips in such a small community. Hind sight shows me that I was very fortunate to have her, and when she took the time to invite me back to speak in front of one of her classes there is no way that I would pass that opportunity to speak for her class. She has devoted so much time enriching my education, the least I can do is take a couple of hours out of my day to be there for her. I only hope that I can encourage her students to challenge themselves, and find out who they really are through the education that she provides.

Welcome back students!

What a week! Well the kids are back, the roads are finished, and now we wrap up summer and prepare for the fall. Fortunately we haven’t had the cold nights yet, but they are around the corner. Work will be shifting from tenant search and placement to final mowing’s and fall clean-up. This time of year is always fun and interesting because of the changes that we see all around us. Those of us in the North East are very lucky to experience the change of season. One of the things that I always tell people in my travels is that I love the changing of the seasons, because without the cold weather that we have here, we would not be able to appreciate the summer as much when it comes.

Wow, what a last few weeks it has been!

Crunch time! September is just around the corner, and owners have been scurrying to get things done in time for the arrival of the students. This means that I have been getting phone calls at all hours of the day, and working from sun up to sun down! For those of you who know me best, you know that this is the way it has always been for me. I am just surprised how quickly it took to get to this point. I do realize that after September 1st comes and goes that things will slow down again, but man, what a ride it has been. I have been doing chainsaw work, landscaping, tenant screening, apartment showing, painting, and launching this new website. One of my assignments this week called for me to drive all the way out to Harwichport, in the cape, and prepare a home for sale. Hopefully everything goes smooth for the homeowners because I think it is a great house only 200 yards from the water.  Some days have been 10 hours, while other days are 13-15 hours, and I love every minute of it! I have been able to hit my monthly quota’s already and now I think it might be time to raise the bar a little bit. We shall see…
