Early Spring sales pace something to keep an eye on–and maybe act on

Back in February I wrote about the bloom that Spring often brings to the local real estate market—at least historically speaking. Last year over a 150 day period which began in April, we saw a 80% increase in the number of homes sold compared to the activity level from the beginning of the year, to […]

Summer 2013 housing activity beats last year’s numbers handily

The housing activity over the Summer has been nothing short of remarkable; proving yet again that when it comes to real estate activity, national numbers might make the news, but they’re not always very relevant to us here in specific neighborhoods in the Valley.

New Home and a New Beginning — Thank You Chris, Danielle & Isabelle!

Back in June I wrote that one of the great things I get to experience in real estate, is working closely with couples, families,  or individuals that are making their first home purchase.
