In 1995 because the economy was slowing down dramatically in British Columbia, I had sort of investigated the Seattle market and it looked very promising. So I ended up basically shutting down most of my construction business here in Vancouver though I still owned some properties. And setup in Seattle. In Seattle I did homes, I did sub-divisions, I did High-Rises. And for the High-Rise we ended up entering it into what is called the MAME Awards it’s something like our Georgie Awards only much larger, it’s the whole United States. They take the United States and they break it up into regions; I’m going to say about fifteen regions. And each of those regions will have the best projects for Marketing, for Design, for best Kitchen, best this… and the ultimate best award is the Community of the Year, which means the whole project is the best in that area. Well after all that happens and they win in different areas then they get together and they do the National Awards. They pick the best, the best of the best, from the different regions and we won the MAME Award for the Best Community of The Year. Which means it was the best project in the whole United States. Which is quite something! We went to the Award Committee and there was probably, oh, excess of 1,400 people from across the United States in Dallas Texas. T. Jones Enterprises – TJonesGroup.com
