NY Daily News ran an interesting article on January 19th which listed the 25 strongest housing markets in the United States according to Forbes. The 25 markets that are listed are those they project are closest to recovery in 2009. It was great to see that Charleston, SC was ranked 8th out of 25!

Reflecting On Their Renovation

"When we first contacted Structures about our home renovations, while still living in Connecticut, we did so based on the excellent recommendations we had received from people living in the I'On neighborhood. What we didn't realize at the onset of this comprehensive project was the degree of care and concern Structures would bring to our project. Structures exceeded our expectations. Initially we felt we were entering into a purely business relationship, but it didn't take long for us to realize it was more personal. Structures demonstrated through not just words, but actions that our home was being cared for as if it were their own. The attention to detail and the quality of craftsmanship were superb. We have highly recommended the Structures team to others and we continue to enjoy living in a home that they truly brought back to life."

Renewed Resolutions

It's that time again and yes, I made my list of resolutions and goals that I'm hoping to keep over 2009. One of my goals was to continue my daily early morning workouts. I have to say this morning I didn't feel like going, but sometimes picking myself up by the nape of the neck helps me get it out of the way. As I arrived at the gym, it was funny seeing the influx of new people who evidently made exercise one of their resolutions. For all the "regulars", I hope they allowed themselves a moment to experience the feeling of a little victory, it was encouraging to see the habit that so many of us have worked hard to form has stuck, we didn't need to add it, just continue it.

During my workout, my thoughts jumped to Structures and some of the new resolutions we should add to our list for this brand new year. As my mind started that list, I also reflected on the fact that we're a company that's not ok with the status quo, standing still or just settling. I had the same encouraging feeling that we're working hard with integrity, passion and a commitment to each client, to autograph our work with excellence. It was a great feeling knowing that we're not in need of drastically changing "unhealthy business habits or practices", but rather "renewing our resolution" and continuing to look for new ways to build upon a great foundation that began 10 years ago this year!
