One of my mentor friends told me a story a long time ago. He started his business career as a door to door insurance salesman in the sixties. On the day he was telling me the story I had just lost a 110,000 sale and was devastated. I couldn’t stop going on and on about it. In his story he talked about going to hundreds of doors only to hear the word, NO or worse no words at all, just the slamming of a door. His answer to the rejection? He would walk to the end of the driveway, throw his hands in the air and celebrate by yelling YES!

in a year or so, confronting her with stark financial choices.
Anyone who knows me, knows I am not a pessimist by nature but this may be a trend that will drive the age at which our coveted demographic chooses to lease an apartment home.
