A Skiing Tradition And How It Can Relate To Real Estate

On the way back from Jackson Hole on Monday, I reflected on the experience I had just had and the clients I was about to see. It occurred to me that skiing can be a bit like buying or selling a home – it's exciting, thrilling, and if you don't know what you are doing... a little bit scary. 

Through the years, countless clients have invited me into their lives and trusted me to guide them through personal situations and financial decisions. So, I wanted to take a moment to share what I've learned about agility, focus, and the value of traditions.
