HOW TO FEEL OLD…We just closed THREE transactions with two young men who were in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts with my son Tom! All these guys are in their early thirties now. CONGRATS to Blake Wyatt and his wife Shelby on the SALE of their Lodi home and the purchase of their move-up home! The Statesman Team’s Kristina Heisler worked with me on these deals. CONGRATULATIONS ALSO to Mark and Jenny Morgan on the sale of their Lockeford home! Thanks to our own Sherry Dickhoff for her work on this transaction.  The Scouting days don’t seem like they were that many years ago…Can you relate? Time does fly.

SIX CLOSINGS in the last seven days! As I write this little rant, I’m rejoicing at our excellent First Quarter and looking ahead to an even better Q2, thanks to many of YOU! Your referrals are the lifeblood of our business. Thanks so much for entrusting friends and family to our care.
