Inside this Issue – Fall 2007

Welcome to the fall issue of the S.E.C. Observer. President Bill Stonaker poses many questions that he would like to ask you to ask yourself in an attempt to understand “where we are going from here”, and Michael Soon Lee’s excellent article debunks ten myths about multi-cultural clients.

Wes Dingler, our newest Counselor, shares the lessons he has learned from the “greatest generation.” Virgin Opfer, past S.E.C. President, redefines the most popular real estate adage. Colby Sandlian, also a past S.E.C. president, imparts some excellent advice regarding when it is appropriate to do the work on your potential transaction.

Stephen R. England, S.E.C. Education Foundation President, announces our new “Legends of the S.E.C.” program, and you will enjoy a fascinating biography by George Jonilonis who is “in the spotlight”.

Hunter Quistgard did not submit a new article for this issue, so we have published one from the History files her wrote in November 1973 for the Real Estate News Observer about strategies to take when money is tight. And last, but certainly not least, Richard Reno’s article from June 1973 explains how real estate brokers should handle their fees.

Enjoy this issue, and as always, we welcome your comments, suggestions, and articles to be considered for publication. Please contact the S.E.C. Office via email:
