I would like to share a short personal story with you. In 1997, I attended my first Century 21 Convention which was being held in Las Vegas that year. I can still vividly remember how excited I was because of the positive energy emanating from the thousands Century 21 associates who were there from all over the world. However, I did have a small disappointment at that convention; I was not allowed into one of the breakfast rooms that were reserved for associates who had achieved a given sales performance. And I decided right there and then to set a goal for myself and to realize this goal I knew I had to consistently provide buyers and sellers with professional, value added services. Over the past 15 years I have been working with this goal in mind. With the help from lots of people, like Hido, Queenie, Joe and other colleagues, this year, Hido and I attended another Century 21 Convention in New Orleans and this time I was allowed into the breakfast room reserved for those associates who had served their clients well.
At this time of the year we should all count our blessings. I Thank my Lord for all his grace and I would like to take this time to thank all of my family and friends for your encouragement and support over the years.
