"As Jim Rohn said, you are the average of the 5 people you hang out with the most. I would be ineffective without my best in field team, which includes a wallpaper hanger, painters, rug and carpet wizards, receivers, reps, photographers, our in house team, factories, and many others. It takes a village and thank you for continuing to make the world a more beautiful place with me."  -RB
