A Word from the President Alfred Rodriguez Hurry Hurry Hurry Rush Rush Rush, it seems that is how we live these days and especially when we are under the gun trying to service all our clients in a professional and timely manner, also dealing with all the challenges that come our way both personally and professionally. Now take a few minutes to analyze yourself. Take some time to check on your health. When was the last time you had a medical checkup. Blood pressure, diabetes, heart, etc. If we do not take the time to check on our own health then we only doing ourselves harm and especially hurting those who may be counting on us to be there for them (our families). If you think you are not healthy enough or not getting enough exercise then go see your doctor for advice. We constantly have changes in our lives that create stress but exercise; good eating habits will help deal with those issues. I realize that our commission checks are our priory but our health needs to be a priory as well. Each of you are important to your families (Husbands, wives, and children). Take time to focus on what is important, your health. You are important to me and to the NAHREP family.

Citi Wows Street with $4.4 Billion Dollar Profit NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Citigroup delivered its strongest results since the start of the financial crisis, as the banking giant reported a first-quarter profit of $4.4 billion Monday. Earnings for the bank, one of the hardest hit institutions in the financial crisis, easily shattered Wall Street estimates. On a per share basis the company said it earned 15 cents. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected the company to break even for the quarter. Citigroup (C, Fortune 500) shares, which are up 55% from a year ago, gained over 3% in afternoon trading on the news. Investors have been anxious for Citigroup to return to a sustained level of profitability after the bank endured billions of dollars in losses over the past two years. The latest results, Citi's biggest profit since the second quarter of 2007, suggest that it may have finally found its footing. "Citi today is fundamentally a very different company from what it was only two years ago," Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit said in a statement. The company also made a point of disclosing it was not involved with last Friday's announcement by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which alleged that competitor Goldman Sachs defrauded investors in a sale of securities tied to subprime mortgages.
