We lost a treasure today

I have met many people in my almost a decade in the real estate business. One person made the biggest impression...his name was Bruce Borgstrom. In his 94th  year he was still puttering in the real estate business until recently. That in itself was a milestone. But for me it was his enthusiam, and positive attitude  which I will continue to hold near and dear to me.  He would phone me from time to time and ask me to help him research some listing he saw in the classified to see if maybe we could list it. Imagine still having the spirit in his 90's. The other thing I will always remember was the way he turned up to the office always neatly dressed ready to work. No jeans and sweats for him. Yes whenever I think that this business is getting me down I will remember how Bruce could find the positive angle in areas which I tended to not see. Yes, the Oakville Real Estate board lost a treasure today. May his spirit continue to inspire .
