It’s sometimes hard to believe that I’ve been helping people buy, sell and invest in real estate in the Triangle for more than a decade. It’s been busy but I have to say it’s been fun.
But this past year has brought a whole new dimension to real estate, to my relationship with clients, and even daily life itself.
When everything stopped in the early Spring I, like many in real estate, got ready for a tough year. But historically low interest rates combined with the need for larger homes for my WFH clients turned 2020 into one of my busiest years ever. It was sometimes tricky but the patience, confidence and consideration showed by my clients was heartwarming.
There’s no doubt we still have some rough seas ahead but with the vaccine on the horizon we can have some hope. Meanwhile, interest rates look like they’ll remain low and the Spring market will be busy so if you’re thinking about buying or selling it’s a good time for us to talk.
One thing that has changed for me is how I want to talk to my clients and friends. You won’t see me on Social Media much but you will get phone calls, emails, texts, note cards and maybe even the occasional box of cookies or even a visit if that works for you. I want to talk WITH you, not AT you, and I want to hear about what’s going on with you and yours, not just tell you how many houses I sold this month on Facebook.
Christina and I call it APR, Authentic Personal Relationships, and it’s how we want to do business from now on. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that each one you means a lot to us and we’re not going to take our relationship for granted.
Meanwhile, if you’re looking to buy, sell or invest in the Triangle I’d love to help. If you’re looking for a vacation place, are relocating or have a friend or co-worker moving to the area, I can do that too. I can even help you with office or business space for your company or that new business venture you’ve always wanted to try.
Thanks to my clients, business associates and, of course, my partner-in-crime Christina, it’s been a great ten years and I’m looking forward to a new decade with its new challenges and opportunities.
