I Survived 2009's Real Estate Market

From coast to coast the real estate markets took a hit especially in 2009 when the colapse was really taking effect.  Real Estate had been strong and most companies were doing well inspite of how well they really knew what they were doing.  But when the bubble burst, some companies were able to survive while others had not.  So how did the ones that survived do it.

To find out we studied how companies survived we researched several companies.  We looked at several ERA franchises along the Northwest Coast of Florida, an area that has a mix of first, second and seasonal homes. We also researched some other smaller companies to see what they were doing as well.  SEE WHAT THEY DO DIFFERENTLY.
