A day when we are asked to remember
our many blessings.
to think, to love, to live.
whose most valued treasures
are a special gift.

Since then that number has exploded to 500 million (175 countries); about 7% of the world’s population.

I am writing to you this week more as a public warning, or a real estate warning message if you will, than my regular message. This is something that all real estate agents and investors must be aware of in today’s marketplace.

Our readiness to take the easy bait makes us like the wolves that are hunted above the Arctic Circle. The wolf hunter dips a sharp knife in blood and freezes it. …
