hi , i would like to nominate ralph block for the 2013 feste award. i cannot believe he has not won this award before. i follow ralph on the reit investment board,he has share his knowledge, experience, and basic all around investment ideas. i read his book about 10 years ago and that gave me an interest in the overall view of the reit marketplace. which has been very beneficial to me on personal and financial level.if someone has a question on the board, ralph is the go to guy. thank you, jimI have to say, I'm a little suspicious of these last-minute nominations.
