My Pledge: to Stand by You
Things are looking up. Still, our vigilance on behalf of the real estate industry must continue.

I’m a guarded optimist, but it doesn’t take an optimist to see positive signs for housing in America. Several independent surveys last year showed that, despite five difficult years in which many owners lost value, Americans still want to own a home. In December, there were reported increases in pending home sales, existing-home sales, and housing starts. My guarded optimism tells me the beginning of a bona fide recovery is underway.
