Well, it's official. Friday was my last day at John F. Buchan Homes. With the financial/real estate mess that the country is in, it finally caught up to me. I'm suprised I made it so long. When I came on board with Buchan 3-1/2 years ago right out of my graduate program in Real Estate Development, we were building close to 200 homes a year with an employee base of about the same. Next year they are hoping to build 20 homes, if they can find a bank to loan them money and they have about 100 homes waiting to be sold. This leaves one employee in the estimating/purchasing department until things rebound.
I loved working here. It was a great family owned company, that built very nice homes. I had an excellent boss and co-workers (just co-worker towards the end. LOL). So if you know any millionaires out there that are looking for a nice million dollar home on the Seattle Eastside, we could use about 100 of them. Just send them here.
In the mean time if you know of any great Finance/Real Estate Jobs you can send those to me. LOL
I guess this way, I can finally finish typing up that blog about my last race that I have been trying to type for the past two months. LOL So stay tuned...
