What I Learned: Purchases are more rewarding than refinances.  I enjoy helping people realize the dream of ownership and giving them the capability to enjoy 300 days of sun here in Arizona.  The majority of my business comes from snowbirds buying a second home or relocating to our beautiful state.  Many of my clients are coming from Washington or the chilly Midwest.  I thank each of you for your business and trust. Relationships:  To my loyal Realtors.  I work tirelessly to accommodate your closings and will continue to perform my 20 day close.  Thank you for always recommending me in such high regard.  I promise to keep you educated, informed with our clients, and always take your calls on the weekend. To my Staff:  Thank you for making me a success.  We closed 175 transactions this ye...
