Last week, my team and I attended the Keller Williams Bay Area Estates awards show. It was a lovely evening, full of great people in a beautiful setting. It was a successful evening, too!
Yes, that’s me, holding my 2016 award for being one of the top producers in the office. It was an absolute honor and delight to receive this award! It also helps put things into perspective after a very remarkable year in real estate.
Real estate is like any other market: it has its ups and its downs. Fluctuations are inherent…one must be cognizant of them, and roll with them either way. As such, in weighing one’s progress, an agent must take a more holistic view of their business.
In this past year, my business has taken a huge step forward as I have assembled my real estate team. Month by month, I have recruited some truly incredible agents to work alongside me and build our collective business. The night of the awards was a chance for us all to get together and celebrate our partnership. I am so very grateful to work with such a phenomenal group of people, and I look forward to seeing how our combined efforts propel us to new heights!
In other news, home prices in the Bay Area continue to rise as inventory creeps lower and lower. This has created what is effectively the very definition of a seller’s market, as a multitude of buyers compete for the few homes on the market. Home values are reaching unprecedented heights as desperate buyers offer well above asking price in order to secure their dream home. How this will play out in the long term is uncertain, but one thing is abundantly clear: if you’ve been thinking about selling, there has never been a better time than NOW!
This week served as a reminder of how much I love my job and the talented agents I work with…and we’re always thrilled to share that love. Whatever your real estate needs, contact me and my team and let us put our award-winning skills to work for you!
