Business is Great, Life is Good

Posted on March 01, 2009

TURN YOUR TVs OFF NOW! STOP READING THE PAPERS! Naysayers beware–I am tuning you out and tuning into my own optimistic, gut feelings, common sense, faith in humanity, observant, hopeful, inner child! “Business is great, Life is good”

If I hear the word “CRISIS” one more time, I’m going to scream!

Okay…so if a tree falls in the forest and there’s no one there to hear it, does it still make a sound? …I am now convinced that the answer to this proverbial question is NO!!! No sound…absolutely, no sound!

So…….if the major networks and the politicos are spewing off their fear based, negative spin about the terrible state of the economy, but no one in Naples tunes in to hear them, is there still a crisis? Hello-oo, again, I say the answer is NO! A big, fat emphatic, NO! Just take a gander at our the February stats and then you tell me….Is there a crisis in paradise?

Yeah there’s a crisis! –and The crisis is: No one is giving us something to shoot for anymore. We are rewarding the under achievers, bailing out the irresponsible, and wallowing in this whole pitiful mess! Let me tell you, there are excellent buys in Naples Florida! –and The sun shines here almost every day! It was 75 degrees today! I’ve got grapefruit and oranges growing in my back yard for goodness sake!

There are 78 million baby boomers beginning to retire this year…I only need to connect with a couple of dozen of them each year to make an honest living!

Listen, I’m not saying that we should look the other way & it will all go away…I’m saying, “let’s choose to participate in the recovery”! Yes, there are some issues that definitely need resolving, but nearly 1000 buyers made the decision to move forward despite the naysayers and went into contract on a home or condo in the past 28 days in Naples Florida! Fifty two of those contracts were for over $1 million dollars! A few were for over $10 million dollars! Call us today and let us share some of the “Good News” about Naples Real Estate with you!
