    Thanks folks. I was a senior manager in IT responsible for online banking and call center application development at a large regional bank (between #9 and 11 in the US typically) in NC. I have done consulting and may accept short term engagements in the winter.

    This is a big change and now that things are slow in real estate I will use the time to get organized. I am just now starting to be more aware of what is on the market just on this lake and it is amazing. But, I have to wait till I get my license - hopefully soon.

    Charlie, I will definitely wave when we close on your lakefront cabin. I will shake your hand too. Some of the things coming up this fall can be moved a bit on the schedule. A couple of things are already locked in. So, if you hear about a volunteer week at the summit opening up, let me know.

    Best of luck in your new career Brad! A career change after having such a great position with the bank will take some adjustment, but will certainly breathe new life into everything you do from now on. I know first hand after being layed-off as an Operations Manager with Motorola about six years ago. And you should be positioned quite well to take advantage of the market when it bounces back. And living in Maine fulltime, I am envious too.....

    Brad, it's a fine thing to rearrange your life so that you can be where it is that you want to be. Not many people have the courage to do what you're doing. Congratulations to you!

    I do have to say my wife is a bit nervous. But, the timing is right to get in.

    Plus, it gives me a chance to call Charlie's bluff and go for a week on the summit.

    Good luck on the change and congratulations for taking the risk. Too easy to keep doing what we are doing sometimes.

    Smile Move to Maine

    Brad,
    Best of luck on your new venture from one salesperson to another. From what I have read, the real estate market seems to be on the rebound. In case you are curious as to what capacity I am involved in sales; insurance agent (Property & Casualty) for 26 years. To live and work in Maine; The Way Life Should Be!

    My view is the real estate market is great and could not be better - for a buyer. I have friends all over the world who have an emotional attachment to this area of Maine. They vacationed here as kids - or they went to summer camp here. They know what the area has to offer and would love to come back - to a 2nd home or to retire. There are 58 properties for sale on our lake alone. 35 of them have their own waterfront. What an opportunity for a buyer to find something they like!

    I want to quickly get positioned to be able to help them. Plus, it lets me stay in Maine and not commute to NC.
