Happy New Year!

January 4, 2008

Well the holidays are over and it’s back to work as usual…well….not quite.  You see 2008 is a new beginning and one that we at Keystone are excited about. Last year we had our best sales year ever.  Despite concerns from a slowing housing market and changes in the mortgage industry, you felt comfortable choosing Keystone as your home builder.  That is what we are most proud of – the trust you have in us to help you realize your dreams of home ownership.

 Like every other company out there we are made up of people – people who are far from perfect, but trying hard.  The good news is that each day is a new beginning, not just January 1.  Each day brings new opportunities to serve you better and make the best use of our education, training, and experience.

The housing market is returning to normal after years of unbridled growth.  There are sure to be more bumps along the way.  However, 2008 is full of promise and we are excited about what the future holds.

 We hope you feel the same way. 

We look forward to working for you and with you this year.
