A couple sales which were just waiting to close finally did this week. Kudos to Dani, Emma, Michelle, Paul and Tiffany, Keith and Sonja, and Pat for hanging in there and not making any rash decisions about moving and staying and rescinding, etc. From the minute I got into this business my least favorite aspect is that I can’t control every aspect of it.
