An Acrostic Poem for the word Care:

Contscientious AcoountableResourcefulExceptional.

Over the last 3 years I have been involved working with homeowners, lenders, buyers, attorneys, asset managers, investors, in the distressed real estate market. The more I work in this market the more I see the biggest hurdle as the lack of caring .

It is because we have lost sight of  caring for others that we are in the mess we are in. We have also lost sight of the process of caring or making people care. I strongly believe we have to make people accountable for their actions, bring back the human element which is caring for others into the process or we are all going to be lost for ever.

When working in the distressed real estate market ther tends to be a void one feels. There is no sense of feeling good about a transaction because someones gain is someones loss. This void is compounded by the lack of caring expressed by others in the transaction.

Is the word Caring a lost art in the distressed real estate transaction? I hope not and I hope we realize this collectively as a group because I do care…
