Executing the real estate hat trick

Letters From the Home Front

It has become one of my favorite lines of all time, and it was delivered in the epic movie, "Legally Blonde." When Elle’s unrequited love remarks, "You got into Harvard Law?" she responds matter-of-factly. "What? Like, it’s hard?"

That’s the way I tend to look at most things these days. The fact is, when you take a step back, most of the things we do really aren’t that hard. Or at least they shouldn’t be. It’s just that we make them seem that way. We obsess, we fret, we get overwhelmed, and then we find ourselves frozen wide-eyed in the headlights of oncoming traffic.
