Happy New Year and Thank You
Well another year has come and gone and as 2011 comes to and end, my 21st year in the commercial real industry it’s time to thank all the people who continue to make this such a great gig.
First and foremost, I want to thank my clients who continue to give me the privilege and the vote of confidence to assist with their real estate needs. Second to my Colliers colleagues and staff in Houston and around the globe, it is such a great company with a tremendous culture that I am proud to be part of. I was particularly excited to collaborate and close deals with Colliers professionals from Seattle, Silicon Valley and Chicago in 2011.
Who says, “You can’t make real friends online”
Finally, to all my blog readers, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook friends, “thank you” for making all the late hours writing blog posts worth it. Some of you have become much more than social network connections and I look forward to meeting many more of you “face-to-face” in the near future. When you make that real life connection, this is always the prize for the time and effort required to keep this site interesting to people. I appreciate you reading my posts, sharing my content and your continued support. I am fortunate to have chosen a career that I truly have a passion for and this blog has been one of the most satisfying endeavors of my career. Over 50,000 people visited this site in 2011 consuming more than 100,000 pages of content, that is a drop in a huge bucket compared to many blogs, but for me it was a very rewarding accomplishment. I will strive to continue to improve the quality of The Tenant Advisor and I wish you all a healthy and prosperous 2012.
I also want to thank Rod Santomassimo for featuring me in his book, “Brokers Who Dominate.” I am certain there are many that are more deserving but it was quite an honor.
2011 had its fair share of challenges personally and professionally, but the economy and business were much improved from the previous couple years. While there are still headwinds in the economy and this business never seems to get easier, I am both confident and excited about the coming year.
So 2012, Let’s Get Ready to Rumble
