When Lewis and Clark looked over the horizon and saw the Pacific Ocean, they were charting the future while applying lessons learned on a long, historic journey. In the housing market, it is also important to look to the future with a nod to the past. The market has come a long way since the burst of 2008. May we always thank the past for teaching us how to pursue our futures. And may we always have a market interpreter as able and wise as Sacagawea.
