I have had several people come up to me recently (knowing that I’m a real estate broker) and breathlessly ask “So . . . how are you doing?”
It’s like they just can’t wait to say “You poor thing, you!” because I’m in real estate.
When I (honestly) tell them I’m doing well, they look at me with disbelief.
I’m fortunate to have a loyal base of past clients who refer their friends to me, and I have many clients who have completed several transactions with me.
I have three closings between now and December 4th and I’m actually looking forward to the upcoming holidays so I can catch my breath and plan for next year.
One of those closings is a listing that I sold this past weekend after only two weeks on the market.
I’m glad that we again have a market where buyers and sellers actually need someone with experience who can guide them through the complex process of buying or selling a home.
Believe it or not, there are actually serious, qualified buyers out there who want to be homeowners.
Those buyers are buying the homes in top condition that are properly-priced.
I don’t view our present market as “bad”; I view it as getting back to reality.
BTW – If you run into me, please don’t say “You poor thing, you!”, okay?
