How to get a FREE Japanese Maple Tree

Buy &/or Sell a House with ME….
Get a FREE Japanese Maple Tree!

In case you’re wondering…this is my “Japanese Maple Baby Farm”. As the Japanese Maples in my old yard began maturing, they sprouted seeds & baby Maples would pop up all over the yard. After changing careers to real estate, it occurred to me that a Maple Tree would make a great gift for one of my clients who was tearing down a house to build a new home. BTW, almost got arrested in Chamblee for that one. The policeman thought it was another type of plant with 5 pronged, jagged leaves. That seemed like such a great idea; despite my near brush with the law, that it became one of my regular closing gifts. My Maple babies are now in yards all over town. Would love to put one in your yard too!

So if you or someone you know is considering a move, contact me TODAY to be on your way to a free, lovely enhancement for your yard! As your real estate concierge it will also be my pleasure to help you find the right spot for your tree as well as assist in planting if needed.

Can’t wait to find your new home with a perfect spot for your tree? Just follow this link:

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Why do I need a Realtor® to sell my house?

04/21/2021
Leave a Comment

The Market is HOT!

Why do I need a Realtor® to sell my house?

Because of the shortage of homes for sale buyers are literally lining up to see new listings. This has some sellers wondering if they can sell their homes on their own & save money on real estate commissions.

The answer is yes! As long as you know what to do to prep the house for inspections & to appeal to
today’s buyers, market & price the house correctly, set up showings with a system to keep track of
visitors, have competent resources to assist with legal & disclosure issues as well as contracts, evaluate offers unemotionally & can legally hold earnest money. Go for it!

However, those are some of the things to consider during a regular market. In today’s fast paced market it’s a different dynamic. You MUST be prepared to receive, mange, track & respond to multiple offers; agents in my office have received as many as 30 offers on one listing. Not to mention many of the offers have escalation clauses & creative stipulations that can be confusing, ultimately cost you money & may risk losing the buyer.

Therefore, to insure that you even make it to the closing table, while avoiding speed bumps in the road & leave with as much cash as possible, you need an experienced Realtor®, like me, who has got you covered! So if you or someone you know is considering selling your house contact me TODAY to learn more about the opportunities presented by today’s market!

We’re #1………

because it’s an AWESOME place to work!

Love Keller Williams & had to brag….The Rawls Group, which owns my office (the very 1st one in Atlanta) & 5 other KW offices, is the #1 Residential Real Estate Company in Atlanta per The Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Book of Lists:

https://www.bizjournals.com/atlanta/subscriber-only/2021/03/26/atlantas-25-largest-residential-real.html

That’s because it’s the best place I’ve ever worked in my life! Even though we are all independent business owners my office’s colleagues go out of their way to help each other out! That’s the opposite end of the spectrum from my experience in Corporate America! So when you hire me to help you buy &/or sell a home you not only have me, one of the hardest working agents in Atlanta real estate, you have 2100+ other people who have your back! How awesome is that?

Ready to make that move? Contact me TODAY to find out how you can take advantage of this market’s opportunities & historically low interest rates! Can’t wait? Just click on this link to find your dream home anywhere in the United States:   https://app.kw.com/KW4RHIFV

Atlanta Market Update

03/22/2021
Leave a Comment

Here’s the latest from the Atlanta Realtors® Assn on the Atlanta Real Estate Market:

Homes Sold: February residential sales were at 5,094, a decrease of 3.2% from the previous year.

Price: Average and median sales prices continue to outpace 2020’s figures, with positive gains. The median sales price in February was $315,000, an increase of 16.7% from last February. The average sales price was $380,500, up 16.4% from the previous year.

Supply: Atlanta area housing inventory totaled 7,571 units in February, a decrease of 50.6% from February 2020. New listings totaled 6,957, down 11.5% from February 2020 and up 3.1% from the previous month. The month’s supply over a 12-month period decreased to 1.2 months.

A Word from 2021 Atlanta REALTORS® President Cynthia Lippert:

“The unprecedented seller’s market in Metro Atlanta seems unlikely to slow down anytime soon based on February numbers,” stated Cynthia Lippert, 2021 President of the Atlanta REALTORS® Association. “The flattening of sales volume in year over year comparison is a reflection of the continued inventory shortages which are far from meeting buyer demand.”

“It could take a year or more to bring inventory levels back up to meet the demand,” Lippert estimates. “That’s the solution to rebalancing the market.”

“The good news for sellers is that it’s still the best time we’ve seen to sell a home. However, even in a hot market, it’s imperative to work with a professional REALTOR® throughout the process. Amazing results aren’t a given without strategic marketing and proper advice.”

If you or someone you know is thinking about selling contact me TODAY to find out how you can take advantage of this market’s opportunities & learn more about new COVID marketing tactics.

Wondering about sales in your area? Always happy to help with that too! All you have to do is ask. Can’t wait? Just follow this link:  https://app.kw.com/KW4RHIFV

Atlanta Market Update

02/17/2021
Leave a Comment

The January #s are just in & wanted to update you on the Atlanta Housing Market:

  • Sales prices are up 17.9% compared to last January
  • Inventory is down 48.5% compared to January 2020
  • New listings are down 19.4% from January 2020 and up 27.1% from December
  • The month’s supply over a 12-month period decreased to 1.2 months; that means if no more houses came on the market we would be sold out in about a month.

The last bullet point is the most significant; buyers are literally lining up to see new listings! Many sellers are receiving multiple offers within a day or so of listing. An agent in my office had her house under ontract within 4 hours of putting it on the market. Don’t let that intimidate you; an experienced Realtor, like me, knows what to do! So if you or someone you know is considering a move, contact me TODAY to learn more about how you can seize the opportunities presented by today’s market!

REALLY low inventory-all price ranges!

01/26/2021
Leave a Comment

The chart explains it all…..Inventory is down by exceptional levels in all price points! BTW, we NEVER see this chart with all green! Month’s supply represents how long it would take to sell existing inventory if no other homes were listed. 6 months’ inventory is where we shift from a seller’s market to a buyer’s market. Sellers will like this part; there is less than 2 months’ inventory for resale homes <$1,000,000. That’s leading to multi offers in many cases. Even better, today’s buyers are extremely motivated! We’re selling 8-20% more homes with 40-50% less inventory.

Buyers don’t fret; a proactive agent, like me, can help you win in competing offer situations! Additionally, the historically low interest rates give you more buying power!

So if you or someone you know is considering making a move, contact me TODAY to learn more about how you can take advantage of this market’s opportunities. Can’t wait? Just follow this link to find your dream home &/or check sales prices in your neighborhood: https://app.kw.com/KW4RHIFV
