2009 has been quite a year. Whether I like it or not, it's not one I'm likely to ever forget! For me, the highlight was launching my own real estate brokerage in the midst of a housing crisis, a mortgage meltdown, and a near financial and economic meltdown the likes of which the United States hasn't seen since the Great Depression. And yet, despite the many challenges all that confluence of craziness presented, I can honestly say it's been a terrific year. A year of tremendous learning and yearning...a yearning to strive harder each day to make LakeandCityHomes.com the best resource for Madison area home buyers and sellers - bar none. My heartfelt thanks goes out to my Mom, my valued clients (both past and present), and to my growing base of site visitors. And a special thanks to the many tech-savvy agents and brokers here and abroad who have been so generous with their time and advice. Thank you for sharing so selflessly. I could not have done it without you!

Here's wishing everyone a smooth and happy transition from 2009 to 2010. May you have a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year and a wonderful start to the new decade!

Congrats Jolenta, no easy task to start and operate a brokerage in last year's economic climate. Here's to an outstanding 2010 and a transformative decade.

To say 2009 was an interesting year, is quite an understatement!! Thank you to Jolenta and all her hard work and dedication in helping me in this journey of growth. I am nervous, but looking forward with great anticipation to 2010 and the opportunities that lie ahead for me! My best wishes to all, met and yet to meet, for a happy and prosperous New Year!

I hope despite all of the trials and tribulations of 2009 you had a great year and I hope you have an even better 2010.

I guess I am a couple years late but I hope that 2009 was everything you hoped. I hope that the housing market has continued to improve in your neck of the woods. As for me not so much. Here is to hoping the rest of 2012 is great!
