Editor’s note: The following is a reader comment on the Oct. 2 guest perspective, "Opportunity street is still knocking."

"… Those real estate professionals who decide they are going to make the best of this situation and not complain about it and those who continually educate themselves on the newest trends, use the Internet to hone their networking and marketing skills, (and) do something different to stand out ahead the crowd will reap huge rewards as this market turns itself around, as they have already set the stage for success.

Whether you decide to specialize in short sales, foreclosures, investment properties or you chose to work closely with a mentor or a real estate trainer or real estate coach, the fact is you are chosing to DO something about it! You make your own success, and I totally agree you either put roadblocks in your way or you drive on through to that ‘Street of Opportunity.’" —Peter Vekselman
