As this is my initial foray into blogging, after such a transformational moment in history which is the election of Barack Obama as our 44th President, I feel compelled to post on this important topic.
After the election was called much earlier than many suspected, I went to sleep thinking about how Obama's presidency will impact us here in Chicago. The short answer is that there will be a tremendous impact on this City.
That said, if I had the President-elect's attention and wrote the following letter, how would you finish it?
Dear President-Elect Obama,
I know the economic and real estate problems of the nation are now in your hands; but as a Chicagoan, I hope you still have a soft spot for your hometown. If you could, over the next few years could you fix the following in Chicago to make this a better town for REALTORS® like me?
