Take each day…

It’s not hard to understand why a strong market is exciting for our team. We are busy. Very busy. But with every booming market comes the inevitable speculation and hyperventilation about when it will end. Sigh. Will we never learn? As we emerge from lockdowns and start adjusting to the new world of living with COVID it’s going to be interesting to see where we revert to previous patterns.
