“My name is James Carney, I am a retired Aerospace Engineer and Executive.I was chief engineer for the Apollo-Soyuz Mission and Program Director forthe Thermal Protection system on the Space Shuttle at RockwellInternational. In July of 2014, my wife and I received a letter with a copyof the original sales brochure for the Ellinwood Track as a goodwillgesture from Marie Hoffman of the Hoffman Murphy Team. Since my wife and Ihad been fortunate enough to select the first property in that track, Iopted to write Marie a letter musing about the original conditions andprovisions of our area and I invited Marie to visit us and share our view.She accepted. Marie’s charisma and ability to extract one’s life history inthe first ten minutes started a friendship that is priceless. Since I’msomewhat housebound, Marie visits me when her health and her business andnumerous activities permit. We discuss health issues, current activities,personnel histories, our wonderful neighbors on Highgrove Street, and ourindividual plans. I never cease to be amazed at Marie’s business acumen andthe wide range of projects that she and her Real Estate team contributetime, direction, and money to. She is one fabulous woman. -James Carney”
