(WICHITA, Kan.) — Nobody felt the downturn in the economy more than Lewjene Schneider, she sells homes.
"We might as well shut our doors for a few years. It has been absolutely dead in real estate," she said.
That's why when she found out about the latest Boeing order, she was excited.
"People are going to make more money and feel confident about their job and their going to want to move to a bigger house and improve their life," said Schneider.
Schneider thinks she'll start seeing business pick up as soon as this weekend. She's added staff to her office and is working on new marketing materials, all in hopes that the big Boeing announcement will inspire people to buy houses.
