    None....all our accounts are the same as last year.
    We may lose 1 or 2 but can replace those easily.

    About the same amount as usual for this time of year. I'm doing several per week some weeks, other weeks I'll do 20. Alot won't start thinking snow till after Labor day. With the economy the way it is people seem to be dragging their feet a little in getting renewals in though. I'm alredy picking up new properties though. I'm having to do alot more promotion with long time properties (6 & 10 years), new boards that don't rember what happens when they hire the wrong contractor & are looking at numbers (I think), probably someones nephew or grandson too.

    About fifteen, and booked up with more qaulified prospects than I could ask for... 9 acre lot just sent a 3 year signed deal in today. Renewals done by end of next week. Largest annual growth in company history, and even winning a few at highest bid. Can't ask for more... if this is a recession, maybe I'll need a depression to beat this year! Happy hunting.
