August 2019

We had an amazing trip to my home country Norway in July visiting my parents and sister and many good friends. It is such a beautiful country that you should definitely put on your "bucket list" ! Emma and Jack had a blast playing with their Norwegian cousins and Emma spoke Norwegian the entire time. I felt very grateful to take a trip like this, while my team handled all my real estate back home. A HUGE THANKS TO KRISTI, PETE and HEATHER for all their hard work while I was vacationing. It's taken me many years to be able to take a vacation like this... knowing my clients are taken care of. It's important to spend quality time with my family as real estate can be all consuming throughout the year. I knew my clients were in good hands. I closed 1 escrow the week I left, three escrows while I was gone, two new escrows opened, and I've taken 3 new listings since I got back. Not bad! I'm excited to be back to work helping my clients reach their goals.

Real Estate slowed down in July as many families were taking time off, but the market has already picked up in August. Market times have increased to an average of 45 days on market in many zip codes. I would expect an even bigger upswing in activity in September when the kids are back to school. I'm now taking listings for the Fall so if you or someone you know are thinking of selling, please reach out to me. The rates are still low so it continues to be a good time to purchase a property. I would love the opportunity to work with you or your referrals!

Enjoy the rest of your Summer and good luck getting kids back to school!
As always, I am thankful for your business and continued support.
