Jonas Soder, Mexico Real Estate  (Paradise Mortgage Mexico): Mortgage and Lending in Oak Run, CA Jonas Soder, Mexico Real Estate (Paradise Mortgage Mexico) said over 13 years ago,
"Being one of the pioneers lending in Mexico, we have been very fortunate to have gained such a great client base. From the investor, vacationer, expat, retiree to locals we thank you for your loyalty and your business as well as referrals!

We have seen many brokers come and go over the last 5 years, some good and some bad for the industry. Many banks got caught up in the US banking meltdown, and had to leave the market. But in retrospect others have stepped up and entered the market and are seeing the untapped opportunity. Our foundation and base of lenders is growing and we see a great future.

Investors, vacationers, retiree's and expats are taking advantage of our many great options. This market and economy is growing. This has traditionally been a cash and carry market. Lending is still in its infancy. This is a stable housing market as we do not have the issues that plague the US, forclosures shortsales."

The buyer is from California and is interested in a property I have listed on the east coast(New Hampshire). She has looked at my property twice and I am hopeful for an offer soon. Thank You ActiveRain!"

"This site is very user-friendly and what I don't know, the people at Active Rain are more than accommodating. They seem to really know their "stuff" and very willing to impart their expertise. They know more than just computer information to successfully launch this blog site, they know the real estate industry from a number of perspectives. Thank you VERY much Rodney Kei and Steven Graham! ~ Linda Alexander"
Constantin kepart (abc): Real Estate Agent in Sherwood Park, AB Constantin kepart (abc) said over 13 years ago,
"Sometimes we want something so badly that we jump at the first product that comes along that claims to be able to give it to us. When it comes to an athlete looking for pumps that don't fizzle out and die when they leave the gym,
let's hope they are not naïve enough to choose the first supplement that promises a sustained pump. Xtreme NO really does promote what is being coined the 'perpetual pump,' and it has proven and guaranteed results to back up its claims."

I personally experienced emergency admission to the hospital on November 4, 2008. The medical team determined I had life threatening condition which required surgery within hours after I was stabilized.

While speaking to my partners and associates managing my business reading emails while I was in critical care and my months of recovery would state “another A/R groupie” sent an email wondering what happen to my blogs and humor ”I was missed”

Nice to realize across the country I may not have ever spoken to these A/R members however they had concerned thoughts of my whereabouts forward an email determine if I was still in real estate business IF YES where was I.

Thank you for those friendships we make along the way."

A very happy buyer was able to purchase that home for less than market and was also more of a home than what they were previously looking at.

After closing, I sent out "Just Sold" postcards to the neighborhood. I closed two more transactions in that neighborhood from that post card!"
