Beauly lives everywhere in 2011

Beauly lives everywhere in 2011, live who you are

headroomIt is good to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who help make 2010 a productive year. I've seen many changes this year personally and professionally. With each opportunity, and every challenge, comes a chance to change and grow into what's next. Little of it would be possible without the support and inspiration of my family, friends, clients, and colleagues. Beauty lives in every home I help people with, and I'm privileged to have been a trusted part of my client's lives as they make important transitions in them.

I believe the more challenging real estate market has been a chance to revisit the basics, and optimize what works best to serve my clients. The blog has been a little bit quieter, but not silent in 2010; as I've pursued more personal, face-to-face networking, while stepping into online social networking too. There is little doubt that the new town squares like facebook and twitter are important; they provide a common context and tools for communicating with broad groups of constituents. Yet the thought still lingers that when everyone's online experience is transmitted through standardized social media packages, it also colors and homogenizes the messages. The din of conversation is louder than ever. For a business like mine, that emphasizes design and branding to bring value to property marketing, the challenge is to break through the clutter. Striking the right balance will be key to finding success in 2011 and beyond for people in many businesses.

Happy New Year to all, and best wishes for a prosperous and productive 2011. May you find beauty everywhere you look.
