Budgeting for 21st Century
I remember when I first started in the property management industry over 25years ago. Things were so different then.

Jackie, I just wanted to say that it was, indeed, a pleasure to have you speak to us today at the Chattanooga Apartment Association. The information you provided to us was both informative and inspiring, and was much appreciated by my staff and me. I hope that you found us to be a captive and receptive audience, and that you will come back to speak with us again in the future.

Jackie,
I just wanted say thank you for the speech at the Hotel on Feb. 09, 2010 for the Irvine Company. I was impressed of the knowledge, energy and always a big smile on your face at all times, you created a positive impact on every one. I always wanted to meet someone like you because you are one of us and I am so proud for all your success. I will make this comment, I hope you do not take it the wrong way but here it is; "When I get older I will love to get the energy and knowledge you have!" My favorite topic is, To Be Proactive, that is what I will take the most from you.
Thank you very much for all your time.
