Inside this Issue – Spring 2009

Welcome to the 2009 spring issue of the S.E.C. Observer. Tom Langel, S.E.C. President, encourages us to seek opportunity and find the “silver lining” in these challenging times.

William Stonaker, S.E.C., CCIM, presents Part II of “Deer in the Headlights,” and Stephen Barker, S.E.C., CCIM, explains why “kryptonite won’t work to eliminate debt.” Stephen England, S.E.C., ALC, warns us “not to ignore problems in this troubled economy;” and Ron Robinson, S.E.C., advises us that everyone should adhere to the “code of the west” at all times. Chuck Sutherland, S.E.C. and Stephen Barker offer formulas to help you be more creative and so you can close more transactions.

Lance Warner, S.E.C., 2009 President of the S.E.C. Education Foundation, updates us on the important role of the Ed Foundation during the economic downturn; and Larry Browning, S.E.C., is “In the Spotlight.” The “History Files” in this issue were originally published in July, 1973. Cliff Weaver presents a technique for you to “hold on to more of your cash;” and Yvonne Nasch provides a “double in lieu of” formula that resulted in four closed transactions.

In this issue we are pleased to announce a new column from our national sponsor, “News from Exeter 1031 Exchange.” Bill Exeter will keep us up to date with new laws, tips, and techniques concerning exchanges.

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
