In the 1800s, Alphonse Karr penned the phrase: “The more things change, the more they are the same.” While it is difficult to imagine a time where the pace of change was not continuously accelerating, the basic tenets of success seem to remain eerily consistent. The economy has not performed as well as was predicted at the beginning of the year. Our regulatory environment is increasingly complex. Technological advances have moved us into an almost instantaneous culture, where relevance is exceedingly momentary.
Yet, in the midst of those changes, we still see a grounding and dependence on trusted relationships. Success is still dependent on doing what you say you are going to do, and providing customers a valuable service they can depend on.
At Stewart, we continue to adapt to ever-changing economic conditions and regulations. But the more we change, the more we realize that those adaptations are ancillary to the relationships we have with our customers. While necessary, managing change is irrelevant without a foundation as a trusted partner.
Thank you for your relationship with Stewart. We appreciate your business and your trust. We are committed to enhancing the real estate transaction process while staying true to who we are. We promise to change, but we also promise to stay the same.
