Inside this Issue – Summer 2012

Welcome to the summer 2012 issue of the S.E.C. Observer. In this issue, Leo Goseland, S.E.C., 2012 President of the Society, ponders what significant similarities there are between the Fourth of July, Independence Day, and the Society.

Ted J. Blank, S.E.C., CCIM, EMS, compares preparing for marketing meetings to a “gunfight at the OK Corral”; Thomas H. Langel, S.E.C., presents an “economic bright spot “; Hunter Quistgard, S.E.C. shares an excellent formula for use even when “counseling in the blind”; and Steve England, S.E.C., ALC, discusses whether “one should invest now or wait for better times.”

The S.E.C. Education Foundation announces website improvements and encourages your participation in the programs available. William S. Biddle, S.E.C, is featured “In the Spotlight” of this issue and you will thoroughly enjoy learning about his journey to the real estate profession.

In the History Files, Royce Ringsdorf, S.E.C., provides a barnyard parable for “three legs” in exchanges; and Richard Reno, S.E.C., acknowledges that “problems do exist in property management.”
