As Thanksgiving approaches this week, it’s the perfect opportunity for us to pause and reflect on the many blessings we share. This year has seen lots of growth and we’re thankful for so much. Since our company’s founding in 2009, our firm has been fortunate to have amazing support from clients, colleagues, friends, and family.

Last week, Virginia Commonwealth University’s Kornblau Real Estate Program held its annual Real Estate Trends Conference in Richmond, VA. Vera and I joined over 1,500 attendees at this popular half-day conference held in the Greater Richmond Convention Center. The conference provides a great overview of the health of the real estate market in Richmond and the economy more broadly. Simply put: Everyone was feeling good this year! A strong economy and demand across various real estate sectors is a good recipe for optimism.

During the Fall of 2012, Andrew and I decided to pursue our Accreditation in Public Relations (“APR”). The APR has stood as a signature accreditation within the public relations industry since 1964. More importantly, it requires rigorous testing and continuing education requirements which keep those who carry the letters up-to-date on all the most important trends in communications, media relations, social media, government affairs, crisis management, etc. The APR also stands for ethics. Every individual who applies for the APR must abide by PRSA’s Code of Ethics which includes Honesty, Independence, Loyalty, and Fairness, among others.
