Getting Through The Toughest Year In Recent History (TOGETHER!)

It’s so great to be back with you! It sure has been a crazy time for all of us over the last 12 months with a polarizing election, fires, Covid, a winter storm, riots in our city, government shut down, and my friend (and our marketing manager) being diagnosed with cancer this last year. We are so happy that she’s on the upswing of her treatment plan and hope you and your loved ones are doing well and staying positive! We look forward to getting back to bringing you the latest real estate news and monthly inspiration.


Is Now REALLY The Right Time To Refinance, Buy, Or Sell? You'd Be Surprised.

Have you ever considered refinancing? If you currently have an interest rate over 3.5%, this could be the perfect time. This month, one of my clients locked in at a 2.5% interest rate without having to buy down the rate and we’re still experiencing historically low rates. If you’re curious about a refinance or have any questions, give me a call to find out if this would be the best option for you.

Are you looking to make a move this year? If you are thinking about selling your home, I encourage you to reach out to me sooner than later. The real estate market is at a record low inventory with the largest housing shortage in the country. For us to have a balanced market, we need 4-5x our current inventory levels. This shortage is causing bidding wars that are going $50K+ over the list price, which means it’s a great time to be a seller.

However, this isn’t to say it’s not a great time to be a buyer as well. Locking in a low interest rate is a great opportunity to meet your wealth-building goals. Research shows people are living in their homes for 10+ years on average, so we expect to see steady, reliable appreciation long-term.


Congratulating Austin Hunt On 1 Year In The Business

I want to take a moment to highlight Austin Hunt, our incredible newest addition, who’s officially been in the business for a year now. I’ve been so proud of how he’s handled himself and continued to grow. His service has now been experienced by many families and we’re so grateful for the spirit and hard work he brings to the team.


Learning To Value What Matters Most

This last year has helped me realize what’s most important, and I hope despite all the hardship, it’s done the same for you. We never know what tomorrow holds, so it’s more important than ever to be grateful for what we have today. I hope you are holding your loved ones tight, as it is their love and support that gets us through these difficult times.

We are wishing you all a wonderful new year full of laughter, love, wonderful new memories, good health, and many blessings! As always we want to say "thank you" for all your referrals and everyone you send our way, we are so grateful!

I've also shared a link below if you would like to donate to help out our marketing manager Renee, who is such an amazing woman and friend, and is so important for our business:
