An Old Realtor Gives Thanks

13 December 2014   Lee Amble
Every once in a while, it's time to stop and give thanks. Today is one of those days.

As you all know, thank you to PrescotteNews and Lynne LaMaster for making it possible to write these articles. If it were not for all the readers, there would be no need for extending our thanks. Many of you have read my articles over the years, and we do appreciate your looking forward to reading the new ones coming in the future. So, the biggest thanks goes to our readers.

But, don't worry. I am not writing this as my last article or to announce I am quitting real estate. In so many ways, I feel like I have just begun. My writings are not always what readers want to read, but it is as I see things that are current and an honest look at the future. If nothing else, they are “Food for Thought Articles”. I thank you all for the positive comments given to me which are extremely important.While I'm at it, let's give a special thanks to the following:

  • My parents for bringing me into the world and instilling the truth into me. The great Midwest work ethic and watching them never giving up. This was all on a very small farm in North Dakota with very humble beginnings. All in all I owe my life to the Creator and my parents.
  • The profession of real estate starting in Fargo, North Dakota.
  • To friends who encouraged me to try real estate 40 years ago in Fargo, North Dakota. Joe and Dick are both deceased, but I still feel greatly appreciative to all their support.
  • The three real estate companies in Fargo that helped teach me to be a better realtor also taught real estate ethics, honesty and the very hard work that it takes to be a successful realtor.
  • The TV and Radio Stations that gave me more interviews than I can even remember, and started me with a dynamic career that now spans 40 years.

Positive thinking people who helped change my life were: Dale Carnegie Instructor Lowell Gast; Robert Schuller and Les Brown, two of the the worlds’ best motivator friends for many years. All of the other motivators also taught me a lot. I have had many mentors and one was Jack Hilleboe, who back in the 70’s allowed me to change my life. He will never be forgotten.Last and not least, my wife, Jan Amble, my partner in real estate for 40 years, and also my partner at home. None of the above would have been fully achieved without her help, understanding, and patience.“Thought for the Day”: Be thankful for what we have – and – don’t have. Thanks for reading!
