                     As a new office, 2009’s numbers were difficult to
                     project, and adjusting our strategy was a direct result
                     of not only the economic conditions, but also of
                     interest rates and the political atmosphere.

                     One factor giving us hope for 2010 is that some of our
                     previous clients who had been reluctant or unable
                     to sell are now showing faith in the economy and
                     putting their homes back on the market.
