We want to take a deep breath before the craziness of IBS sets in to say thank you to our clients, industry friends and members of the press with whom we’ve worked with throughout 2010. We see positive signs of our industry moving forward and adjusting to the new normal — a faster pace in our day-to-day conversations, fewer remarks about the industry tanking and a more long-term view in company sales projections and activities. All good stuff.
It is amazing to witness the resilience in our industry as we continue to focus on positives . . . another IBS . . . another Builder Concept Home . . . another New American Home . . . another Show Village — all annual projects that seek to showcase innovation and forward thinking. And then another year of more industry trade shows, of new product introductions, of lobbying efforts to protect the mortgage interest deduction. And more entrepreneurial efforts by builders, remodelers, contractors and designers to be smarter in their businesses. Again, more good stuff.
So, on behalf of the entire team at Griffin & Company, thank you all for making our 2010 a particularly satisfying year. Our sights are now set on 2011 and how we can best contribute to the continuing momentum in our recovery.
All the best in 2011!
